Today was a study day. I worked on my SS lesson for tomorrow and worked on this website some more. Little by little I am getting up to speed. I love it when I get a response to a blog or article. Also, I am looking forward to getting some questions on the Q&A.
This week I went to the eye doctor and will be having eye surgery on the 13th of Feb. and again on the 13th of March. It is not real major – just cataract surgery on both eyes, one at a time. It got me to thinking how much we depend on our eyesight. My life would change so dramatically and I would really struggle to adjust to life if I lost my eyesight. I was thinking about how our seeing helps us to understand God’s perception of everything.
Tomorrow I will be in a teacher training meeting. Our church has these meetings once a month. They are to help us as teachers to do a better job. Our educational pastor is so devoted to equipping us that he goes the extra mile all the time. He is so supportive and helpful. I needed a large monitor for my class on Wednesday and he got it together with just a few hours notice.
After that meeting I will be practicing with the men’s choir on some new music that we just got last week. I am relatively new in the men’s choir and am really out-skilled as I don’t even read music but they encourage me and so I keep going. Who knows, I might even get better.
News update! The translations are all progressing. The Russian translation is in the third chapter and the Spanish translation is almost through the second chapter. I haven’t heard about the Japanese translation in a while. I know that the translator was on a mission trip, out of his country so I am guessing that slowed him down some. I understand that he is working on the 5th chapter. The translator on the Chinese translation was here a couple weeks ago and they are working on the 6th chapter. The work is slow but it is moving along steadily.
