POTTERY BARN DOES IT AGAIN!
I might be reading my new Christmas books already, and I maybe bought a beautiful Holy Family decoration today, but it is November and I'm decorating for Thanksgiving/Harvest tomorrow and waiting on some pillows for Thanksgiving!! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for! (Autumn baby, what can I say!) This year has been rough & I haven't felt like decorating so I haven't. But satan's not getting between me & my turkeys + pilgrims πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

It only took 8 years of marriage for him to end up in a trunk πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
We were volunteering at our church's fall festival, and they needed more trunks, so we volunteered ours with about 20 minutes to come up with an idea to decorate it with whatever we could find. For the record: this was Gene's idea.
Parents loved it, kids were not enthused, and our pastor said "well this is... ... scary..." πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Oooops!

The most important part of my typhoon prep was buying some new toys for #OurBoyBusterRhymes since he doesn't understand "restricted to quarters" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
He just got a new scarecrow last week when he went in for a pawdicure, but he got some typhoon toys as well!

"We don't lick the Bible, Buster!"
If all dogs go to heaven, #OurBoyBusterRhymes is trying to lick his way in. Whenever I sit down with a study he insists on being on my lap.
Today I'm working on You & Me Forever by Francis & Lisa Chan... and I think Buster thinks he is the "you" that will spend eternity with me. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Typhoon Lan came through like most typhoons come through Okinawa lately... BARELY AT ALL. Last night it started looking a little rough on our evening walk & while delivering some soup to some friends.
This morning it's all Allman Brother's out there 🎢you're my blue sky, you're my sunny day! Lord you know it makes me high when you turn Typhoon Lan away, Typhoon Lan went away-ay-ayyyyy!🎢

Tonight our church hosted a movie night to kick off a Missions Weekend (if the weather holds!) and showed the documentary The Insanity Of God featuring stories from Nik & Ruth Ripken of their time on African mission-fields and Nik's interviews with persecuted Christians in China & the (at the time) USSR.
JUST WOW. It makes me want to write the mission board tomorrow & go where there is a need!

Pre-Typhoon sunsets are just stunning 😍
#TyphoonLan should pass by Okinawa without a direct hit, but since it's 1,200 miles from west to east & 800 miles from north to south, we're going to get hit a little.
Thankfully we live in concrete bunkers (as pictured) and should be pretty safe. Prayers to everyone in this storm's path!

This summer at VBS, I taught the 2nd graders the lesson of Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. I asked them all how old they were, what they thought was "old" (thankfully they all declared that "like 100" was old!), I told them I was 32, and that Jesus was 33 when he sacrificed himself for our salvation.
They asked me if I was going to die when I turned 33, and I told them "no... I don't think I love anybody the way Jesus loved us!"
I knew right then what I wanted for my birthday: a Bible, so that I could read the text in its entirety during my "Jesus year!" Nan got me an awesome study Bible to use with a little case to keep it and my journal in! A week later, I'm still on track!

My sweet Nan sent me 33 cards this year for my birthday. I saved them all to sit down & spend some quality time "with" her so this afternoon I finally had a chance to open them (I didn't want to travel with them). I made it to card 13 before I started bawling. A picture of her from when she was probably around my age fell out of the card and I lost it. Such a fun thing to hold on to and cherish forever. I can't wait to be back in the states closer to her!!!

We last watched a movie called The Reaping. The Million Dollar Baby gal was an ex-Christian missionary who lost her husband & daughter in a sacrificial ceremony in Africa, lost her religion, and became a professor debunking religious miracles & phenomena.
A small town guy comes to her after the river in their city turns red with the blood of a little boy & they're afraid the plagues are coming for them.
I won't spoil anymore of it- it's on Netflix & was the perfect creepy movie. If she's coming for me I'm cool with it.

We arrived in Taipei yesterday afternoon, checked in to our hotel, and grabbed a cab to go get a birthday tattoo.
The master tattooist called in an artist to create my vision since we leave today! She got there & got to work creating a Phoenix for my forearm.
Four hours in the chair (2.5 after the shop closed!) and I couldn't be happier with the amazing piece Bee created for me. Her attention to every little detail, ensuring the most beautiful piece was amazing!
This piece is so special to me: 32 was such a hard year, but I faced my every battle so bravely and am rising from those ashes to be stronger and more beautiful. (And also: I'm sorry Nan!) #ESquaredTakeOnTaiwan
