When people don't understand our WORDS, are they compelled by our WORKS?

5 Thomas said, "Master, we have no idea where you're going. How do you expect us to know the road?"

6 Jesus said, "I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from me. 7 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him. You've even seen him!"

8 Philip said, "Master, show us the Father; then we'll be content."

9 "You've been with me all this time, Philip, and you still don't understand? To see me is to see the Father. So how can you ask, 'Where is the Father?' 10 Don't you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I speak to you aren't mere words. I don't just make them up on my own. The Father who resides in me crafts each word into a divine act. 11 "Believe me: I am in my Father and my Father is in me. If you can't believe that, believe what you see—these works. John 14:5-11 (MSG)


Joyus Goes Halloween - enough said!

The "Fellas" Weekend - Sans Dave Lang

Good morning Evan! Rise and shine at 5:40am last Friday morning [Oct. 20] for the beginning of our annual "fellas" bonding fest. Most of the pictures are not allowed to be shown for fear that children or small marsupials would be frightened by such displays of 30+ yr olds hapless bouts of nostalgic story telling, playing video games, and pulling hamstrings while trying to relive one's 20s for the weekend. It was well... awesome as you can see.

Evan decided to WOW us with his latest skills in using email. Westy [wearing his yellow-my-wife-doesn't-like-this-shirt as an act of freedom], shows off his passion for xbox 360. Go Chris - dominate for us.

Can you just SENSE the excitement and the fun all over the place!? Look at Father Alex... tearing it up - way to go FUNNY guy.

Baby #2 for our friends the Laviks - Andra Lavik!

Please pray for baby Andra - she is going through some health issues right now and could use your prayers! She is a beauty and has big plans to give her older sister, Matty, some competition for cutest in the family.

Girls Fantasy Football Draft Celebration

Who is the girl on the right? Does anyone know her? Well, I believe this picture was taken near the night of the Girls Fantasy Football draft [no guys allowed in the league] so ofcourse we had to make a night of it. Matt and I ... uh ... helped. Obviously, it got a little intense so Irons felt he needed to remove any hindrances from thinking clearly - thus, he went shirtless for Kristy's draft. What a guy.

The Visitor

Our good buddy Kelly McFadden comes to hang out at the Kerr Pad back in Sept before her hubby Mike could follow! [Yeah - I am a little behind on our updates - both are back in the OC after a year in Oxford. It is GREAT to have them back... hopefully to stay!] Posted by Picasa
