Good Grief, Charlie Brown

I can't believe that it's only a couple of days since I last posted (I accidentally typed 'pisted' by missing the 'o' and thought it looked funny. Don't know why I wanted to tell you that, just did, OK!).

So much has happened. We are at 30 Kakadu Parade, Palmerston, NT 0832
It is small-ish but great.

We have so many people who have rallied around us and donated furniture etc, it is great. Yesterday I spent the day collecting furniture and speaking again to the Principal of Marrarah Christian School, he has offered me a full time job, if I stay 'till the end of the year.
It would be 50/50 music and relief or in the music room repairing and getting things organised etc.
The music dept is a bit sad and need someone to show the way forward. I think I would like that.
Jude would pick up ome relief work as we needed it.

I have someone interested in looking at the hilux, which is great, and all is moving fast here.
If we stay sam and Jessie would be required to attend a regular school, which I think would be good for them. Mind you KSA is GREAT.
Judith and I can't do Sam's algebra!

So, more big decisions to make.

We went to the Darwin Baptist Church on Sunday and he said he could not sleep the night before he had to preach, and he changed his topic.
His topic came from Psalm 5 which say something like 'Crying comes in the night, but joy comes in the morning'.
He reckoned that ther was some one in the meeting who had a rough time of it lately, but to let them know that there would be joy in the morning.

We felt like it was for us.

And there has been.

Another matter....

My eldest daughter Michelle is on the front page of the Tasmanian 004 phone book!
Here is the pic they used.

Until next time,
CU later, Len

Hi Len, Judith, Sam and Jessie,
Well here is to new beginnings... it is great to hear you are so positive and trusting God. I have cried as I read through your blogs - I don't know if they will be as interesting in the future, but will see. With you there is always some excitement on the horizon. LOL.
Please pray for us, especially for Mark's health which is topsy turvy at the moment- again. Will ring you soon.
We love you guys and continue to pray for you and your future. Great to hear about your job options which will help with your future plans I am sure. I am so pleased that you have settle into your new home.
Recently I applied for 8 jobs, was shortlisted for a possible interview for two and then received a letter to say I would not be interviewed. I was greatly disappointed but God knows. A friend, who is a teacher, said I should not be disappointed because at least I had been short listed as 400 teachers had applied for the jobs! WOW! I now feel that I actually achieved something.
Anyway, all the best until next time. Love Sylvia

I am getting plenty of relief work. Working 3 days a week, although out of the last 10 days I worked 9 days which is great.
It is probably best fr me to do relief this year as we are heading to England and Paris in August and September to catch with ark's family who we haven't seen for 26 years! Also to go to Disneyland, Paris! Very exciting stuff! (Love me English?) We will be trying to learn some French before we go???? I remember some of my high school French and we have a French speaking lady in our church who every Sunday she tries her best to teach me some French - I am the most hopeless of students I am sure because from one week to the next I forget what she is saying! LOL!
Anyway, all the best until next time. Love Sylvia

Sorry about the repeat - getting to know how to work the system. Just a few spelling mistakes but you et the drift.

Hey there.
Go to the iTunes store and subscribe to the Tapis Volant podcast. It will then download to iTunes and has 100 lessons (I think) on French. Sam was to use another version of the same programme.
It has review sheets as well.
Tres Bien, au revoir mon ami.
