Summer is FLYING by...

 At the beginning of summer I spied two pirates! 
And below, two space nerds.
 Our blackberries produced some very nice fruit. 
 Zane and Koen, along with Dallas and Lilly
made a visit to the blueberry farm. 
Sadly, I couldn't find my camera, so no pictures.
 And the Highlight of our summer, is always our Reginal Convention.
This year the Convention theme is:
 "Keep Seeking First God's Kingdom!"
 Daniel and Pam with their buddy, Johnny.
Friday's theme:
"To You It Is Granted to Understand The Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom"
-Matthew 13:11
I enjoyed the symposium entitled: 
"What Must be Kept in Second Place."
Recreation (Mark 6:31; John 4:34)
Eating and Drinking (Eccl. 3:12, 13; Romans 14:17)
Concerns about Health (Ps 115:17; Luke 12:25; 1 Tim 5:23)
Courtship and Weddings (1 Corinthians 10:31-33)
We sat with Dale and Sheena and her family in the parking lot on Saturday
Notice Dion is with us too!
Saturday's Theme: "Counted Worthy of the Kingdom of God"
-2 Thess. 1:5
I enjoyed the symposium:
"Who Will Inherit God's Kingdom?"
Those "Who Are Poor" (Luke 6:20; Matt 5:3)
Those Who "Become as Young Children" (Matt 18:2-4)
Those "Persecuted For Righteousness' Sake" (Matt. 5:10)
Those Who Help Christ's Brothers. (Matt. 25:34)

After the convention on Sunday we went out to eat with Dalton's Family
and our friend, Noelia. (It was Dalton and Kyria's anniversary)
Sunday's theme: "Come...Inherit the Kingdom"
-Matthew 25:34
I enjoyed the symposium:
"Anticipate Future Kingdom Blessings!"
A World Without Satan (Revelation 20:2, 3, 7, 10)
One Language (Zephaniah 3:9; Zechariah 14:9)
Perfect Health (Job 33:25; Isa 33:24)
Complete Harmony with the Animals (Isa 11:6-9)
Paradise Earth (Luke 23:43)
New Scrolls (Revelation 20:12)
Association With Multitudes of Resurrected Ones (Job 14:14, 15)
Ability to Praise Jehovah Perfectly (Rev 5:13)

And the final talk of our convention was most comforting for the days ahead.
"Never be Anxious" -Keep Seeking First God's Kingdom.
(Matthew 6:1-34; Proverbs 15:15; 1Peter 5:8, 9)

Sounds like a really good convention. Informative, reminding us of God's commandments, and things to look forward to.
Did you make something yummy from the blue berries or blackberries??
I like Dion with just the mustache. Does Dale take Riot with him alot, like I used to take Sugar everywhere?
Looks like you're keeping busy, since your 'retirement'. :)

those blackberries look so good!

i love religious conventions and
I love learning about our Savior.
My life is better because of what I know and understand and especially when I live and apply and share what I have learned and understand.
