Stepping Up: A Journey Through the Psalms of Ascent by Beth Moore, is an in-depth look at 15 psalms. Just as a song or poem can express feelings of fear, doubt, hope, and joy, these 15 psalms model how study participants can voice their own petitions and praises to our God, who is always available and ready to hear us. Explore the major feasts of Israel and journey through Psalms 120-134 in this 8-session study. Themes such as unity, joy and gratitude, redemption, repentance, the power of blessings, facing ridicule, and more are explored in detail. Modern-day believers can learn much from these treasured Psalms in their journey toward greater intimacy with God.
Contact the church office (864-489-3123)
by noon on Aug. 31
to insure materials will be available for the introductory session on Sept. 1.
I am very excited about starting this Bible Study. I love going through Ester, so I'm sure I will love this one just as much. Leave me a comment if you would like more information.

I just got this picture in the mail today of the now 13 year old Solomon. I hope he has a wonderful birthday! I have sent money for a birthday gift, since I am not able to send an actual gift. I know I will probably never meet him in person, but one day, I will see him in Heaven, and that is a joyous thought! Happy Birthday Solomon!

As far as my favorite relaxing vacation spot, that would be Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Andrew and I celebrated 4 years of marriage in PV in May, 2008. The entire week was full of relaxation. What a great way to spend a vacation. Lots of time at the pool and on the beach. We also were able to go to a secluded island called Las Caletas, for "Rhythms of the Night." "An exhilarating spectacle, where stories of an ancient civilization are told through live music and modern dance as one of Mexico's most innovative contemporary dance troupes transport you on a magical and mystical journey through time" (Taken from the web-site) There is also a dinner buffet where you actually eat on the beach. It was a great experience.
Another excursion we were able to do while in Mexico was the Canopy Tour. What a great way to see the Sierra Madre Mountains. It was an exhilarating journey as we were able to explore high above the jungle floor via zip lines, suspended walkways and platforms, by scaling the Crazy Ladder and descending via rappels. The whole experience was so much fun!

On a side note, Kelly asked Clara and Lindy what they wanted to get Toot-Toot for her birthday and they responded that they wanted to take me to the Dollar Tree and let me pick out whatever I wanted. I thought that was so cute. So, tomorrow night, I get to go to the Dollar Tree and they will buy me presents.

Andrew and I had our reception at Furman University in the room that overlooks the rose garden. We got married in May, so the roses were in full bloom.
