Proud Auntie

 


Just returned home from welcoming my nephew into the world. He is awesome and totally worth the 6 hour drive through the rain and long night of waiting in the hospital lobby. More to come...

Good Stuff and Mt. Vernon




Taylor's burger up top. Rest is Mt. Vernon. Note to self: Check the times before you drive all the way out to Mt. Vernon on one of the most beautiful fall days of the year.

Sweet Visit



Loved my visit with Cal and Ebru last month. I introduced them to Macarons from Sweet Lobby and we spent the evening playing Loaded Questions. I would have never imagined that I would get to visit with these two in the same room so many years and miles from where we first met.

I had a sweet Thanksgiving meal with my roommate and her family. Mid-way through this delicious meal, I realize I'm an hour closer to my sister and brother-in-law, so I got in the car and drove to Raleigh :)...and stayed for a few days.

Fulfilling a Life-long (or year-long rather) Dream

That's right. I'm goin' on a segway tour :). Business Barbie Bek and I will be joining her parents this Saturday for a DC tour on one of these bad boys. I can't wait. And yes, I still blog on occasion.

Perseverance-thank you Spurgeon

Faith's Check Book, Daily Entry

C. H. Spurgeon


November 23

Acquiring Perseverance

The Lord thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little. (Deuteronomy 7:22)

We are not to expect to win victories for the Lord Jesus by a single blow. Evil principles and practices die hard. In some places it takes years of labor to drive out even one of the many vices which defile the inhabitants. We must carry on the war with all our might, even when favored with little manifest success.

Our business in this world is to conquer it for Jesus. We are not to make compromises but to exterminate evils. We are not to seek popularity but to wage unceasing war with iniquity. Infidelity, popery, drink, impurity, oppression, worldliness, error; these are all to be "put out."

The Lord our God can alone accomplish this. He works by His faithful servants, and blessed be His name. He promises that He will so work. "Jehovah thy God will put out those nations before thee." This He will do by degrees that we may learn perseverance, may increase in faith, may earnestly watch, and may avoid carnal security. Let us thank God for a little success and pray for more. Let us never sheathe the sword till the whole land is won for Jesus.

Courage, my heart! Go on little by little, for many littles will make a great whole.

Turkish Breakfast




So good to be re-united with E. We met in Istanbul back in 2005 and last week she moved to DC. This morning I met her and her friend at Eastern Market to purchase food for Turkish breakfast. It was delicious!
