2015-01-02 New Year...


One from Christmas Eve, me and my comp in front of the Christmas tree.

My face in the Christmas gift exchange... Not really, it went really well (I got a tie!!--see previous picture--), but I still took the photo...

So, today I had to stop by the distribution center, and guess who was there? A ton of members from Ciudad Mendoza! So, of course I got photos with everybody. ¡Me puse muy contento al verlos!

So, it was really nice being to talk with my family on Christmas! Jokes about my hair loss, forgetting English words, and all of those other nice small talk topics. And the 90 degree weather outside, of course. I love you all!

New Year's was good. We had to be in our house early so we didn't have any problems with drunken partygoers, but we were still able to see the people dressed up in costumes stopping cars in the street and dancing for money during the day. And, of course, los viejitos in the street (stuffed scarecrows, see posts a year ago for more explanation. I think I explained it, at least...)

Ponderizing scripture:

Deuteronomy 6:4-8

4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
 5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thymight.
 6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
 7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
 8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

I love you, all of you, and hope you have a great 2016!
