    Lista, Marieanne, you really are too sweet ... thank you! Today I've started to translate and send out reports from Our sponsored children in Kenya to their Norwegian sponsors. There are so many sad stories, but even more happy testimonies from kids who really, really appreciate their opportunity to get education. So I'm glad I can spend my days on something so meaningful. Thank you, Jesus! The negative side of it is that I don't have much time for forum life when I'm typing away for several hours a day, but it won't last more than a few weeks till I'm through.

    We're having the most beautiful fall weather over there, actually it's more like summer than fall even if we're well into October. October 5 to be exact and my sister is 75 years today. I can't believe we're getting old ... okay, I AM eight years behind, but my, my .... time is flying.

    I'm cooking orange marmalade (With lemon and grape fruit) today for our Christmas sale end of Nov and I wish I could post the delicious smell that spreads throughout the house :) Yummy!

    I've never cared for orange marmalade...it's a texture thing, but if it could be made without being chewy I would LOVE it! I'm sure your house smells wonderful though.

    Hi guys, life has taken a new direction over here. I think I told that my dh had lung cancer surgery in January and was declared cancer free, but alas, he wasn't. Sunday he collapsed in church and was taken unconscious with cramps to the ER where they located a tumor in his brain. So there we are, waiting for brain surgery at the National Hospital in Oslo (where the specialists are and where he had surgery in January). It will happen in week 44, starting Nov 26. I learned from Krystian that you don't number the weeks, but it is common over here. We are at peace, resting in the Lord. For months we have been taking the Lord's supper every morning speaking the promises of the Lord to each other and when this happened we felt prepared for battle. I did have some pretty bad hours the first night after I came home from having left him in the hospital. I was thinking of this big house, the garden, his workshop and all those things .. how should I be able to cope with it all if he died? But then I made up my mind to speak to the situation and declare life not death, and really, it helped. I fell asleep and the next morning I continued to speak to myself and the walls, lol ... and of course all the spiritual forces that would like to me choke ... reminding myself and everybody who would listen of Ps 103, Is 53 and so on. And I've been at peace ever since. Praise be to God who always let us have victory in Jesus Christ. That is my song these days. I have quite some speaking engagements for the next two weeks and he can't be left alone so I'll have to find babysitters, lol.

    For me it is such a victory to feel completely at peace, enjoying life even in this situation.
