What Goes Around, Comes Around

Today Rachel and I went to a friend/colleague's garage sale. We did this to look for cheap stuff for Rachel as she moves into a new apartment soon (details here). She bought lots of good stuff, and I bought a couple things too. Our friend also just gave me a bunch of stuff for free including some rubber stamping supplies. When we got home we started going through our treasures and found some examples of old cards that the owner was keeping for getting ideas.

Rachel picked one of these samples up and said, "Oh, look, mom. She has the same stamp as you." I took the card, opened it up, and discovered it was a card I had sent her over 10 years ago! We got a laugh out of that.

Widget?? Nope.

I tried to embed a widget in my blog today. The website of Faith Comes By Hearing presented the code, which I copied and pasted, but it didn't work. So sad.

My point was to give you a quick link to listen to a moment or two of a story from the Pijin New Testament. I found the widget embedded in this blog, which you should click on to see what I'm talking about.

Use the drop down menu to select Pijin language, then hit the "Play Sample" button.

My mind is still thinking about the Pijin Bible dedication which took place recently. A wonderful elderly Australian friend was kind enough to mail to us photo copies of the newspaper clippings from the Solomon Star telling all about the event. This is a scan of a photocopy of a newspaper photo of the open Pijin Bible being carried into the sports stadium on a specially carved canoe. The canoe is being carried by two Melanesian Brothers (full-time workers in the local Anglican church)in traditonal dress on their way to present the Bible to the Prime Minister.
