Family photos and commentary

Wednesday, August 08, 2007
I had to miss Bible study yesterday because we ended up in New York City for dentist appointments. My oldest son had all four wisdom teeth pulled. We also went back to the 79th Street Boat Basin to visit an old friend named Ed, who has a charter boat there. Jim and I lived in New York City on a boat in the Boat Basin for many years. It was a wonderful time, and a great community. My kids had never seen the boat basin before, so they had fun being on Ed’s sail boat. In fact, my Ed really liked Ed Bacon. We had a lot of fun recounting the good times of the people in the Boat Basin. Some of the stories are too funny for words, some were bittersweet memories.Here are a couple of pictures.

Here is one of Ed and Ed talking on the boat, you can see from the smile that my Ed is enjoying himself.


Jim and Ed below deck.


My three kids, Katherine, Ed, and Christopher. I can’t believe Christopher is smiling after having his four wisdom teeth removed. And Ed Bacon is behind them..


And finally, as we were leaving, Jim got this picture of Ed, the kids, and me.


Thought you might enjoy these pictures. I am now working up another Israel post. I keep trying to download videos, but if they are over 3 minutes they bomb out, and I don’t know how to adjust them. I would love to have you hear Pastor Don teach. Writing cannot relay the love behind the teachings.

Have a blessed day.



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
