     To both of you who still don’t belive I have A) Fallen into a black hole  B) Fallen off a cliff,  C)  Gotten my head stuck in the railling and starved,  Or D) <Gasp> Left HSB!   You are correct! None of that happend!  And to everyone else that thinks one or all of the above tragedies has happened, I AM STILL ALIVE!!!!!!

You: "So what happened to keep you from posting?"

    Well, I guess I forgot to mention that we have been in the process of moving back to Kansas City since late June.  Uhh…  Oops?  <Nervous Laughter> Yeah, it’s true.  We are now back in our old neighborhood, just up the street from our old house.

You: "Cool!  What have you been up to, other than unpacking and getting settled?"

    Sarah, Bear and I have been Bible Quizzing!  In fact, last Saturday was Sarah and Bear’s first quiz ever!  They both did awesome! Out of 124 Quizzers Sarah got 27th, I got 26th, and the other girls on our team got 5th and 6th.  Our team was 6th out of 18 teams.  And I was the only one that didn’t Quiz-out!

You:" What are you studying for Quiz this year?"

   We’re quizzing on 1st and 2nd Corinthians and Titus.  I’m studying 2nd Corinthians 1 and 4, and then  month after next I will start on Titus.  So far,  my favorite passage from what I’ve been studying is 2nd Corinthians 4:3-9:

3And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness,"made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

 7But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
