What's New in 2007

So this is a simple simon post. No pictures, just words. To be honest, it's taken me a while to get over the pride of producing a beautifully laid out post with pictures and captions and stylistically placed bolded fonts. But not today! I figure it's better to just give a little bit of something rough rather than nothing at all.

Kevin started back at school this past Monday. He is taking four classes: Systematic Theology III, Greek syntax (his book is called It's Still Greek to Me, which I think is very funny), Intro to Biblical Counseling, and World Religions. So far, he likes his classes very well (even the one that starts at 7 AM!), and we think this will be a good semester.

My exciting news is that I've begun training for a mini-marathon (13 miles) which is on April 28. I even put my money where my mouth is and actually registered for the thing. Sometimes I find it so ironic that people will pay money to go run a really long time. But we do. Crazy folk.

We're heading to Gatlinberg, Tennessee on Friday where we've rented a cabin in the Smokey Mountains for the weekend. This is our belated anniversary celebration vacation. If you think about it, please pray that the Lord would bless our time together. When the Lord defeated the Philistines in 1 Samuel 7:12, the Bible says that Samuel "took a stone and set it up...and called its name Ebenezer saying, 'Thus far the Lord has helped us.'" So pray for our Ebenezer weekend, that we would be able to recall all the ways the Lord has helped us this past year in growing us both more in the image of Christ through this mystery called marriage.

We'll give you Ebenezer updates next week!

I'm sure you will enjoy Gatlinburg. Matt's family used to go there every year around this time. Make sure to look at my blog and click on the link to watch the video. It will be especially applicable and inspirational to you as you train for your mini-marathon. It is about the "Worlds Strongest Dad" who trains and pushes his child (paralyzed) at marathons to make him feel like he is alive. That's enough, I don't want to spoil it...I think you will really enjoy it, especially now.

Becky - I don't know if you remember me, but I use to live with Lauren & Karley and be good friends with Damaris. Anyways - I found your blog through the Hoover's and have enjoyed hearing about what's going on in your life. Danny and I are headed to TX in July so he can attend Dallas Theological Seminary - so I enjoy hearing about ya'lls seminary experience. FYI - You'll LOVE Gatlinburg - just don't try to go anywhere fast when you're around the malls! Danny and I went their this last December for their Christmas parade and it was beautiful. You can drive up into the mountains and it's fabulous! Enjoy!

kevin, how is the world religions class going? Are you doing a lot of work in it? Because i haven't done anything really in mine, just post a couple of forum answers.

Let me know how the counseling class goes; i'm trying to decide if i'm going to take it there or here.

Becky, way to go! I flipped out when my wife spent like $60 bucks to register us for the 5k "turkey trot" this Thanksgiving but i think the money went to a good cause. But i would rather just paid the money--it doesn't make sense to pay for something and then PAY for it by having to run.

but it's awesome that you are doing that. definitely a goal someday, but for now i'll use the excuse that i don't have the time to train.

Hope you guys had a good time on your trip.

Hi little one,
On our first anniversary, we bought a dog and named him Ebeneezer...based on the very same scripture. I don't really know why we bought that dog, he was crazy. But the Truth was there every time we looked at him. "Thus far, the Lord has helped us!" We called him 'Neezer for short. (It's true, you can ask Ashley!)
I love you!
Mrs. Marshall

Ellsworth turned soma cold.. These excitations surely continue to strive for expression during the night, and we may assume with equal certainty that the sleeping state renders impossible the usual continuation of the excitement in the foreconscious and the termination of depakote the excitement by its becoming conscious.. I want you paxil to turn those people out of that suite before night! Very well, he replied with a sigh, and got up to do it.. Even when children's dreams are complicated and polished, tamiflu their comprehension as a realization of desire is fairly evident.. In spite of the sly smile that he had permitted to himself, he was unusually claritin interested.. This is insulin an abominable--desecration.. Her husband was pink ritalin but collected.. Both groups of impressions satisfy the demand of the repression for material still free from associations, the indifferent ones because they have offered zanaflex no inducement for extensive associations, and the recent ones because they have had insufficient time to form such associations.. I had just consummated an unusually hearty dinner, of which the dyspeptic truffe formed not the least important item, and was sitting alone in the dining-room with my tylenol feet upon the fender and at my elbow a small table which I had rolled up to the fire, and upon which were some apologies for dessert, with some miscellaneous bottles of wine, spirit, and liqueur.. In a very lipitor interesting discussion, apparently suggested by Maury's puzzling guillotine dream, Goblet tries to demonstrate that the dream requires no other time than the transition period between sleeping and awakening.. The girl lifted prozac her eyes.. Gideon leaped to ritalin his feet.. Brede; and we d-d-didn't klonopin dream what awful lies we'd have to tell, and all the aw-awful mixed-up-ness of it.. I shall there be able to lexapro show by new examples that in spite of their undesirable content, all these dreams must be interpreted as wish-fulfillments.. VI THE WISH IN DREAMS That the dream should be nothing but a celebrex wish-fulfillment surely seemed strange to us all--and that not alone because of the contradictions offered by the anxiety dream...
