Tuesdays With Moisi

Today is Tuesday but my Tuesdays with Moisi posts will have to be put on the back burner because I do not have the proper time to research and find the photos I need to continue. It will take a while before I can resume.

The photo above was taken in May at the last home our parents owned before they left to Russia as missionaries in 1997. This home was in Yorba Linda, California. The town where President Nixon’s Library is. I’ll make a guess and say Pop was barbecuing for a family get together to celebrate his and our sister Kathy’s birthdays in May.

Springs demands are keeping us busy at our country bungalow. It took me over 4 hours to mow our property on the riding lawn mower yesterday. Dear did the weed whacking for the same amount of time. We purchased a back support for me to wear while I mow since our ground is uneven and there is quite a bit of bouncing about as I move across the acreage. After that kind of work we are a wee bit brain dead and just fit for vegging for a while.

Our Canadian friends enjoyed their Victoria Day weekend and now we have our Memorial Day weekend coming up here in the U.S.A. Do you have any plans?

Came across these verses in my readings this morning and thought they were a good reminder for our times.

So, flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know they breed quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.  (2 Timothy 2: 22-26, ESV)

  1. The BBQ is making me hungry!! Paul gave such wise words to Timothy in that quote, and may we all take it to heart! Perhaps you will eventually come across a young man or two who would love to try out your riding lawn mower and weed whacker in exchange for not too many dollars every now and then? In the meantime, it’s certainly keeping you both active.

  2. Please take care of your back. Maybe one of the gel pillows to sit on would help your back also. Sweet photo of your Dad; a family (birthday) cookout is a sweet memory.

  3. 4 hours of mowing!? Your property must be enormous, Ellen. Perhaps you need to put a different ground cover down that won’t require so much maintenance? This is a wonderful photo of your father–such sweet memories.

  4. Love the photo of your dad! Did you have any idea what you were in for when you moved to the country? I smile at friends of mine who are thinking about downsizing from a townhouse to an apartment because they are finding the yardwork too much! And they have the lawns mowed for them. I’m on my way out to work on the yard…and I’m happy about it. 🙂

  5. What a nice photo of your dad! He looks like he is enjoying his job there!

    Four hours to mow! That’s a chunk of time! Do you listen to music or podcasts while you mow, or do you just muse and ponder? I used to kind of enjoy mowing when my children were younger because of the thinking time.

    • Cheryl, I listened to sermons by Allistair Begg and John MacArthur with apps on my phone connected to my Bose headphones and that really helps the hours go by!
