Personal stuff – photos

Pictures you might enjoy. ( I edited this to remove the last two pictures which for some reason have disappeared from the post- any ideas why two would show for awhile then be replaced by empty boxes with the red X in the corner?)The first two are from last weekend. The girls in my troop (3 of the 4) went to do a community service of planting plants by the Esopus River to help preserve the stream bank. Here is a picture of one of the moms with the girls. We had a lot of flooding recently, so this was necessary and very hard work.

What amazed me is that we went from fall to winter in one week.

Just came back from Bible study. The kids are off from school so I have to give them some attention, then make tacos for dinner. A crowd pleaser in this family.

Hope you have an awesome weekend. Tomorrow is a brunch where I will learn how to be a Girl Scout cookie coordinator. Then I change hats (or uniforms) and drive my boy scout sons around to drop off bags for our local scouting for food, then there is a church function in the evening, church on Sunday where I get to help with arts and crafts. We are making turkey fans. I have some plain fans that the kids will color the “tail feather” fan blades different colors, then paste on a turkey body, wattle, etc. and googly eyes to make the fan.

Maybe somewhere in this weekend I will have time to continue my Bible study homework.

Talk to you soon. My next goal is to visit your sites.

About Heather Marsten

Welcome to Heather's Blog. I'm looking forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. I just moved about nine years of material over from another blog site, Xanga, who may close down mid-July. At first I was disappointed to make the move because I had a lifetime membership at Xanga and had to spend weeks transferring posts. But now I'm thrilled. Already I've met new bloggers and read many new websites. Blogging is a wonderful way to expand my horizons and garner new ideas. I'm a happily married mom of three young adults. My husband and I are proud to watch our children grow and venture out into the world. My daughter is still in college but my two sons have graduated. One has a job and the other just graduated and is in the process of finding a job in his field, physics. Anyone know of any jobs out there? I'm proud of our children and love watching them grow and mature. They've become fine, compassionate, and loving people. Empty nest? Nah, I'm too busy to let an empty nest bother me. Not enough hours in the day. My husband and I enjoy quiet time together and I have many interests to pursue - one of which is blogging :D I am a born-again believer and love God. As you read this blog, you will discover that Bible studies thrill me. There is so much wisdom contained between the covers of the Bible and I am fortunate to sit under the teachings of a remarkable pastor, Pastor Don Moore. Members of our church (Living Word Chapel in West Hurley, New York) are encouraged to teach and there are visiting pastors who stop by our church, I also study the Bible on my own and love sharing what I learn. One other passion is writing. My current work in process is a memoir. A scene from my memoir was published in a book called: Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware - an anthology of angelic encounters compiled by Cecil Murphy. I'm hoping my memoir will encourage other survivors of abuse. I grew up in a home filled with abuse, including incest. For most of my life I was searching for something that would fill the void of not being loved by my parents. I tried many ways to find that love -- therapy, relationships, occult studies, and keeping my life so filled I had no way to think about my past. It was only when I discovered God that I was able to put the pieces of my life back together and walk forward in a joyous life. My nickname - wondering has changed from wondering where the heck God was in my life, to wondering what incredible adventure is going to happen next. I hope you enjoy my site. Please say hi, share some thoughts, and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. Have a blessed day. Heather
