Freedom a Sunday-School lesson




a Sunday school lesson about freedom
starting in Egypt, with freedom from slavery


and freedom from worshiping idols


The plagues were not random but targeted certain "gods"
like the frog-headed god was targeted with a plague of frogs


the cattle had all kinds of boils


and the god who was supposed to protect the Pharaoh's offspring couldn't



with play-dough we made "freedom pictures 


freedom comes in all shapes and sizes


but the best kind of freedom is freedom from sin



and that comes through Jesus Christ

Empty Play Pen

Looking forward to see Elijah, he may not spent that much time in this Play Pen
but it is available for him

Sorting


This was all delivered at Eric's instead of our place



so I got to use the lunchroom for sorting,
it actually worked well

Dishwasher


Peter came to make sure we can plug in the new appliance



somehow we need new appliances once in a while
we have lots of stuff plugged in with surge protectors
yesterday the power went out and came back with a boom
wonder what appliance we need to replace next

A Cardinal and a woodpecker


today the Cardinal was a the feeder
love my new camera lens


Trying to focus on the eye
I took these pictures while talking to Olga on FaceTime


We've had a couple of Woodpeckers all year



Birds at our Feeder


I love Cardinals and when I saw one by our window 
I filled up the feeder again


The Cardinal has been rare but


there have been several Blue Jays


They are kind of fun to watch


and to photograph


the nuthatches have been there all the time
at the peanut feeder


but I like to get more time to take better pictures of these little guys

Home over Iceland


leaving my parents


Flying with Iceland Air 


 Flying over the harbour

Bye, bye
we even could see the afsluit-dijk


Iceland, you can have a stopover there and explore
the blue lagoon and the golden circle 
were the recommendations 


Iceland air is less expensive
but they don't serve food, but you can buy it for a few bucks


We ate at the airport,
I had smoked salmon with a yummy sauce
Marc had lobster pizza...
...only in Iceland
