Personal stuff

Friday, February 10, 2006
Sorry I haven’t continued with my posting, it has been very hectic today. Weatherman predicted 12 inches of snow (not sure now if that forecast will last), we had problems with our back up system in case we lose power, I had to stock up on some food just in case we are snowed in, errands, and a Bible study. I am going to share that with you before continuing on with Revelation, it has to do with dealing with worry and fear.

Then I joined up with my Girl Scout Troop and we went to the local Department of Environmental Protection and did some hands-on science. It was interesting, especially the water table with ground up plastic that was like sand. We were building streams and watching how the water would change the course of the stream. What would happen with a dam, etc, and how the stream changes with various land forms. Very interesting how one little pebble or piece of greenery can cause a difference in erosion. Kind of reminds me how those pebbles of thoughts, ideas and actions can cause a veering in the course of our life.

We also were looking at computer overlays of how the stream path changed over the years, photos from the 50’s through today.

My Girl Scout Troop is looking to earn their silver award with an environmental project.

So, I just walked in the door today, now, and have to do a few other things. I have found it necessary to make sure laundry etc is done in case we lose power.

Thanks for your prayers and thoughts. Still battling that depression, and struggling with some things, so I do appreciate your love and concern. I still count myself very blessed to have you as friends.



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
