Month: July 2010
The hour is over, the show is through
Is it curtain one or two?
The stop sign rises above the hill,
All the people have lost their will.
The flag is flying high and true,
Bet it’s no longer red, white, blue.
Children crying in the street.
The army travels strong and fleet
Hiding in the woods and scared,
they caught most people unprepared
Banks are watched and stores are guarded
Books and school, they’re all discarded
All the people that can’t be bought
They’re all rounded up and shot
There’ll be weak ones, sure they’ll die
they’ll plead for mercy, beg and cry
They’ll swear allegiance to a man
that no one really understands.
They’ve spared themselves a horrid fate
but one much worse waits at the gate
People turn against their friend
and those on which they do depend.
So how’s the clock ticking, forward or back?
You decide, time attack

I received an update from Nivi Bastian about Mark Woodman for anyone who did not read the comments section of my recent blog post. Nivi wrote that Mark recently died, and friends and family are requesting prayer for comfort and guidance. Also I would like to request prayers for my dad, Chris Avalos. He broke his collarbone in a car accident on Friday as he was driving up to Illinois. He ended up not making it, and is safe and well right now. We just request prayers for speedy healing so that he may be able to go down to Texas soon, Yahweh willing.
Recent news from the outside world: a cap has been placed on the well spilling oil into the Gulf, and for now no more oil has spilled from that well.
This makes me really happy. Even though I know that the oil cleanup is far from over, at least the spill has been stopped, and the less oil spilled into the water, the less time it will take to clean it up. Which also means faster recovery time for wildlife and the enviroment.
Not a whole lot more news today, except that my sisters and I learned two new bible verses in two days. I will report them here:
But now thus saith Yahweh that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel. Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name, thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee. When thou walkest through the fire, thou shall not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am Yahweh thy Elohim, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour, I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
And, John 1:1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. The same was in the beginning with Elohim. All things were made by him, without him nothing was made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.It’s really cool knowing some bible verses by heart, and recently we also learned the letters of the Hebrew Alphabet.
I think I’ll leave you with that. Comments PLEASE!!! :)))))
You might be wondering what the title might be hinting to; I forgot to regale my tales of gardening to the readers of this blog. Earlier this year, Mom bought 3 Topsy-Turvys® or upside-down gardening containers, to jumpstart our gardening knowledge. We planted tomatoes, bell peppers, chili peppers, and cilantro. A nice thing about these planters is that you don’t have to weed them unless the seed pods from the trees fall in it. ( I didn’t realize that the seed pods from trees will grow trees in soil with water, imagine growing a tree in a planter.!!) 🙂 Just recently, the chili peppers and tomatoes have started ripening to the point where we can pick them and eat them. Yum Yum!! Chilis and tomatoes taste really good in salsa.
Hmmm, I just realized that I didn’t tell anyone about the waterfall we saw in Joplin, MO on the way back from Oklahoma. There was a REALLY COOL waterfall that Dad decided to visit, and we went swimming in it. Dad even had us put our heads under a smaller waterfall and sing. (Waterfalls have really good acoustics 🙂

Well we got back from Tulsa, Oklahoma Monday morning. That was a indescribable event in itself. It was just so full, so inspiring, it was amazing. Eliyahu Cohen spoke Friday, from morning to evening. On Sabbath we had praise worship and more speakers from morning to sunset. Sunday was a special day for some families there, because after the last speakers, we had some weddings. Five to be exact, five Jewish weddings all performed one after another. My parents were among the couples who married in the Jewish ceremony. All these couples had been married before according to the laws of the land.
My swimming lessons went great, I finished them Thursday night and passed Level 2.
Well, the weather’s kind of different here. We just got back and it starts raining.
I heard about a hurricane along the south, but I am still really glad I live in Missouri. I would rather have a tornado than a hurricane here.
That’s all for today folks, see ya later!!!!!
P.S. We didn’t do a whole lot for July 4. There were a few fireworks while we drove, but mostly it was just the weddings and the speaking that day.
