It finally snowed! Our first winter in NC (2002-2003), we had three good snows. There hasn't been much since. But, overnight we received alot of snow (for this area). Here are some pictures:

20th Anniversary

Today is our 20th wedding anniversary! Unfortunately, we're spending it apart because Margaret is helping take care of her dad in Alabama while he's recovering from bypass surgery. This afternoon, our friend Denise surprised me with a fruit basket that she made. (I think Margaret had something to do with this.) And, yes, I said that Denise made this - she did not buy it. I think it looks and tastes great!

Photo Tag

I've been tagged at James at "idle musings of a bookseller" in a post called "Photo tag". Since I don't post photos on my blog "The Assembling of the Church", I thought I would respond to the tag here.

Here are the rules:

  • Go to the 4th folder in your computer where you store your pictures.
  • Pick the 4th picture in that folder.
  • Explain the picture.
  • Tag 4 people to do the same.

This is my friend Josh. In this picture from December 2008, he is getting ready to sing Christmas carols in a government assisted housing development. There are a few things you should know about Josh: 1) He has three brothers. 2) He's a great artist. He's drawn pictures for me and several other people. 3) He loves and serves people more than many adults. Many times he'll do things for people without being asked.

So, that's my photo. Now... who should I tag... I tag Miranda, Maël, Lew, and Meagan. (If I didn't tag you, but you want to do this, then consider yourself tagged.)

WaFoCoCo with David Rogers

David Rogers, our friend from Memphis, is in town taking classes at the seminary. He came over to our house tonight for dinner. Yes, Margaret is out of town, and yes, I (Alan) cooked. We had hamburger steaks with onions, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.

After dinner, and after talking for a while, we decided to go to Wake Forest Coffee Company. Jeremy and Miranda went with us, along with our friend and neighbor Torrence. When we got there, there was a jazz trio playing and the place was packed, but we were able to find a table in the back. One of my Greek students (Daniel) was our barista.

We had a great evening. I hope you enjoy these pictures:
