I was sitting in Sam's classroom....

and I happened to look to my left ...

... and saw this...

 
 That's Igor reading his Bible, while Paulina, Sam's translator, was reading 
the passage aloud in Russian.

The shadows and light, and of course the substance of it all,
were (are) almost breath-taking to me.

Mmm.

There is a blog I've listed under "Blogs I Like to Visit" (on the right sidebar) that's called 'the blue hour'.
It has inspired me to look (and see) 'pictures' all around me that I wouldn't ordinarily really 'see'. 

I don't know how I found that blog, but I like it.
(I need to go to it and tell the blogger... yes.)


So I'm in a 'sight-seeing' mode, so to speak.

I was looking through my daughter-Laura's Facebook pictures and found this 'sight' I like....
That was taken when she and Ryan were in Bend, Oregon in March.
(I like that picture on so many levels.)

This next picture is not pensive or thought-provoking...

...but it is thrilling!!

That's my son, Will, with his wife, Bailey, telling their Facebook friends 
that they found out they're having a girl!!!

That means I'm going to have a granddaughter!!
(That's with 2 d's, right?)

(Isn't that a great picture?  
(I like it on so many levels.)

[I'm into that phrase today: 'on so many levels'.]

My next post will be about Sam's classes here at the seminary,* and how they're ending.... because our time here is ALMOST OVER!!   
HARD TO BELIEVE!!  

IT'S BEEN WONDERFUL.... ON SO MANY LEVELS!!!

*We are in St. Petersburg, Russia (May 23- June 10) where my husband Sam is a visiting lecturer at the St. Petersburg Theological Seminary.  He is teaching Hermenuetics (Principles for Interpreting the Bible) the first week and "The Problem of Suffering in Six World Religions (including Christianity)" the second week.
