Transition 2008-2009

Here we are at the end of 2008 with plenty of snow and ice.
Do we look ready for a trip to the tropics?
Our last few days in the US were filled with trips to see family.
My niece Lily is a bright girl.
As you can see, she is learning to read. :-)
Our trip over the Pacific went very well.
They even fed us broccoli and manna
(Manna= what is it?)
Whatever it was I was hungry by the time it arrived
and it tasted good.

After 17 hours of travel we arrived in Manila and then spent 3 hours getting our paperwork processed and waiting for a stray guitar that missed the plane in Taipei. After a good sleep, we headed to the grocery store. As you can see, we don't feel lonely here with plenty of people to rub shoulders with.
After shopping we went out for dinner. The kids were excited to get back to a good rice and fish meal with a shaved ice dessert.
Just a few days ago I had more ice than I wanted and now I am paying for it!! Something is wrong with the supply and demand system. I guess the snow in the US doesn't come with purple ice cream, beans and coconut.

We are all enjoying the heat, blue skies, and sunshine.

Have a Happy New Year!

Serve the Lord with gladness.
