Oklahoma City Zoo!

Oklahoma City Zoo!

After we visited the Guthrie Christian Church, Amanda and I were totally exhausted! We needed rest.  We were able to accomplish this by doing two things: Solitude: Motels are wonderful for this. Oklahoma City Zoo: Who knew that looking at caged animals could be so relaxing? We are very thankful to Diane for being our Zoo guide.  After the zoo we headed back to her house for a delicious supper!

Guthrie’s Youth Group

Guthrie’s Youth Group

So as my first youth group lesson while on furlough we talked about none other than feet.  Feet have been our theme for our entire furlough: David's sermon, our presentation, and any other lessons.  This comes from the Scripture Romans 10:13-15, and basically we focus on the end of "how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news." So you can see from our pictures that we also played some games that focused on feet.  The youth had to be blindfolded and figure out with their feet what they were touching.  Also another game was that they had to find their shoe while being blindfolded.

TED talk: The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain

TED talk: The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain

When I read a book, I don't agree with everything the author writes.  Same here.  I don't agree with everything Susan Cain says, especially her thoughts on Jesus. But, in my opinion, most of what she has to say is right on.  Whether you are an Introvert or an Extrovert, take the time to watch this video. I bet you will learn a few things about yourself or those weird people who like to get away and be alone.
