Merry Christmas !

Merry Christmas everyone. I came across this song that really spoke to me and I wanted to share it with you. It's playing and you can follow along with the lyrics below.

"Cry In My Heart"

There's a cry in my heart
For Your glory to fall
For Your presence to fill up my senses
There's a yearning again
A thirst for discipline
A hunger for things that are deeper

Could You take me beyond?
Could You carry me through?
If I open my heart?
Could I go there with You?
(For I've been here before
But I know there's still more
Oh, Lord, I need to know You)

For what do I have
If I don't have You, Jesus?
What in this life
Could mean any more?
You are my rock
You are my glory
You are the lifter
Of my head
Lifter of this head

New photos

I just posted some new photos on the blog.

Thank you, Kathy & Hannah!

Our single but very busy ladies from church volunteered to babysit our girls while Tim and I spent a Saturday morning browsing through Ikea. Kathy and Hannah are familiar faces from church so the girls were thoroughly entertained. Thank you for sacrificing your Saturday morning to watch the girls ! They even put all the toys away before they left. Aha! You thought I didn't notice !

We don't have a photo of Hannah but we are equally appreciative of you !

Joy Luck Club

Tim and I enjoyed a leisurely Sunday afternoon at the David Henry Hwang Theater (in Little Tokyo) watching a play, The Joy Luck Club. I've seen the movie a few times and I walked into the theater with great anticipation. The cast was made up of an Asian-American theater group-East West Players. Their talent really exceeded my expectations. Their performance was impressive. During the intermission, we also visited an art exhibit in the gallery located in the same building. The theme of weeds ran throughout the artwork which didn't impress me as much as the play. We both walked out of the theater telling each other that we should do this more often. Here are a couple of pictures from the day.

Apple Picking

We visited an apple orchard recently. The braeburns were delish! Faith was busy picking the apples and Erin was busy eating them !
