I got back to work on Wednesday and it's been like stepping back into a whirlwind. We have major projects, various code updates, reporting as usual, new users to train, new software to pilot, and paperwork paperwork. Ahh! "The Lord is my helper." Hebrews 13:6, Psalm 54:4
In fun news, I've been playing lego Star Wars and unlocked a whole bunch of fun characters - the "Rebel friend" from Leia's ship in the first movie, an Imperial Shuttle Pilot, lots of droids that beep at me, etc. Now I'm trying to get a million shineys so I can buy the ghost of Anakin Skywalker :P I think I've been playing too much lately, because when I see people walking around, they look like legos strolling around the Mos Eisley cantina... No, you can't run up to them and press the top button to swap out with them!
In exciting news, I've been feasting on the book of Amos recently. I feel like I've climbed up one ladder-level of understanding the broad sweep of Biblical history only to find a huge land of unknown details related to the latter period of the Divided Kingdom that I have only begun to explore :) I've poked around the first half of the Divided Kingdom quite a bit, as Priest Jehoiada lived through that period, but the latter period is much more complicated for me to grasp. Maybe it's because international relations play such a huge role in history and Scripture then. I need to finish that Kings Table sometime, but not just yet. First I have to catch up on rest and prep work for our upcoming 1 John Bible study.
And finally, I decided to go ahead and build a costume for the Imperial Navy Trooper. Yay!
