How Can We Know What God Is Like?

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. “  So says the Gospel of John.  This is speaking of Jesus Christ, a man who was crucified when he was 33 years old.  How could it be?  Jesus was the Word become flesh.  He was fully God and he became man so that we could see God in the flesh and discern what God would be like if he were a man. 

You wonder what God is like?  Look at Jesus!

Adventure Day 2010

Every summer just before school starts we have been taking Alex, Zack and Nick on what we call 'Adventure Day'.  We do something special with the boys to mark the end of summer vacation.  This year we took the guys to the Minong area and looked for several geocaches.  We had lunch at A&W and ice cream later in the afternoon.  It was a beautiful day, lots of fun and we left not one geocache unfound!  We ended the day in the clear waters of Bass Lake. 

Swimming Fun at Bass Lake

After having ice cream at one of Minong's finest establishments, we headed west of Minong to find one more geocache.  Thanks to Zack's sharp eye, we found the cache in no time.  Lo and behold, the boys had brought their swim suits so what could be more natural than for them to take advantage of the beach.  It was a beautiful sandy beach, a warm sunny day and we had the place to ourselves.  Grandma & Grandpa got to relax in their folding captain's chairs on the beach. 

Call The Fire Department!

On August 26, we celebrated Alex's 13th birthday anniversary a little early.  We had ice cream cake and sang a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday to You.  Predictably, Al received a few fishing related birthday gifts, such as a muskie pole and a soft tackle box.
