Five Things on Friday...

1. I drove to Houston today... in the rain.  (I like road trips by myself - even in the rain.)  

2.  Houston traffic is still horrible. (I don't like that.) (I used to come here a lot in the '80's... for some reason I thought the traffic would be better now.)

3. I'm here (in Houston) for a training to be an ESL (English as second language) teacher.  Bear Valley church is starting an ESL program in January and I am going to be a part of it!!!!   (There were training sessions closer to home, but my schedule didn't work for them.)

4. On Wednesday night we had the Huffmans over to eat with Bailey and Will, who were still staying with us.  They were amazed at how Anna is so talkative now.

 (For my new blog-readers, Bailey and Will have been in Scotland for a year... and you know how little children can really change in a year (especially smart ones like Anna!)

 Different note...
5. In Oklahoma earlier this month we saw a dirty car.... 
Notice the dirt is red.  That's Oklahoma dirt!


Well, it would seem by that dirty car that I'm hard up for blog material. 

Ah, but I have this to tell you, too......
The Bible verse for today on BibleGateway.com  really fits for today.....

Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
Joel 2:23

Gotta love the rain we're having!


I hope you have a great week-end.

I love that you're doing ESL training! You are the PERFECT person for that!

I hate driving in the rain, so you definitely have a leg up on me there, too!
