26 and Below MIDWEST (Bible Conference)

My sisters and I enjoyed our trip to Iowa to attend the "26 and Below" MIDWEST Bible Conference. 
It was an amazing time of fellowship and Bible teaching. 

       A new friend let me borrow her  lovely magazines during our drive there.

Pearls, flowers and a "blast from the past."

"But where can wisdom be found?
And where is the place of understanding?
13 Man does not know its value,
Nor is it found in the land of the living.

14 The deep says, ‘It is not in me’;
And the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’
15 It cannot be purchased for gold,
Nor can silver be weighed for its price.
16 It cannot be valued in the gold of Ophir,
In precious onyx or sapphire.

17 Neither gold nor crystal can equal it,
Nor can it be exchanged for jewelry of fine gold.
18 No mention shall be made of coral or quartz,
For the price of wisdom is above rubies.
19 The topaz of Ethiopia cannot equal it,
Nor can it be valued in pure gold.

Job 28:12-19

In my earlier bookworm days..... I was obsessed with the American Girl Book Series. I started with Felicity, then read about Josefina, Addy, Samantha and Molly.

Making Hot Pot for Chinese New Year

Hello my faithful blog readers, sorry for my inconsistent blogging. Thanks for sticking around!
I have been busy with work and my three classes at community college. My poor blog has been on the low priority list.

On February 7 we celebrated Chinese New Year with a Chinese friend. 
 We went shopping for ingredients with her and she showed us how to make Hot Pot soup.

Cilantro, cabbage and bean sprouts

Fish balls

The broth simmering on the stove

Mushrooms from the sea.  I forget their actual name.

The whole spread on the table. Once the soup started boiling, we added the raw vegetables and chicken into the soup to cook. It was delicious!
