Not that I’m saying some verses are better than others, but here are a few of my favorites..
And last, but definitely not least, the one that everyone who has ever gone to church camp probably had to memorize. It pretty much sums up the salvation message. We’re all sinners. Jesus paid for our sins. If we accept that free gift, we have salvation. So simple!
I have plenty of other favorites, so I’m sure this will be a two-parter. I hope you’ll share your favorites with me too!
It’s been a hectic few weeks. This month I’ve had my birthday, almost finished 2 more classes (Only 2 more to go!), gained 180 new followers (a new record!) and tried do as much prep as possible for my trip next month. There are a lot of exciting things in the works for the next few months, some I’ve already mentioned and some are secret! Oh, the suspense!! For now though, I leave you with some more quotes. Stay tuned! 🙂

As always, I’d love to read some of your favorite quotes in the comments below!
I love looking through old pictures, and my last trip to Switzerland will always be one of my favorites. We were staying in a small town called Wengen, “perfect” or “picturesque” doesn’t even begin to describe it. I know climbing the Männlichen doesn’t exactly make me a mountaineer, but we did it… and it was beautiful…
So many cows… and I had to visit with all of them…
The Eiger North Face… Aka what the North face traveling gear is named after…
Sigh… Is it time to go back yet?
This my 100th post! Already! My goodness, how time flies. With this 100th post, I have a very exciting update, at least it’s exciting to me… I am going to the 50th Anniversary Celebration in London for Doctor Who! One of the nerdiest sentences I have ever written, but I am not ashamed! I don’t follow many TV shows, but I can’t get enough of Doctor Who. Maybe it’s because of the accents… Anyway, continuing on from my Bucket List Item #218 I have a few more quotes to add to my list. Here’s the Doctor Who edition…
(New York City, near Lady Liberty)
(New York City, Little Italy)
(Switzerland, near Wengen)
Whether you watch Doctor Who or not, those are some great quotes!
Bucket list item #218 is to make a list of my favorite quotes. I love a good quote and a good picture, so why not put the two together for my bucket list?
With that, I give you the first two quotes…
One of my favorite quotes by C. S. Lewis, from Out of the Silent Planet. The photo is from a trip to Switzerland with my Grandparents back in 2006.
My Oma (Grandmother) was the best travel companion. She was prepared for everything. All you had to do was mention what you needed and it would appear from some purse, bag or coat pocket. On this particular instance, we were hiking in the Swiss Mountains when we stopped for a picnic..
This is when the party crashing culprit first approached. Even in this picture, she’s behind me, but her eyes are firmly set on my grandparents. The cow must know that the best Omas are always complete with snacks…
They didn’t suspect a thing..
The cow tried to eat everything, but Oma was too quick for her. Oma is a Ninja.
Sometimes, Mom even stopped laughing long enough to help evacuate our lunch.
Leave it to Opa to really put the cow in it’s place..
But it didn’t want to take “no” for an answer…
Then it wanted to give Oma a big hug for letting it join our picnic.
But it got distracted and forgot she was there.
My Mom (Blue Jacket) was so helpful. You can really count on her in the event of a cow attack…
Thank you, Cow, for making this lunch one to remember.
I have been to Switzerland twice and of all of the places I have visited, I can easily say Switzerland is the most beautiful. It’s hard to compare different places, because each one has a different kind of beauty, but when I think back about my time there the first thing that comes to mind is how I spent every waking moment in this haze of wonder at my surroundings. Everything is so lush, green and alive! It’s really indescribable. Even the way they stack wood is a form of art.
I promise I have more to say about this exquisite country, but as I was scrolling through my pictures thinking of different things to post, I realized how many pictures I had of wood stacks and that even they had that pristine “Swissness” about them. I figured that was as good a place to start as any. A few posts with more substance will follow, I’m sure. 🙂
