9-9:30 drive across town
9:30-10:30 Bible Study with Mothers at one Christian kindergarten
10:30-10:45 Hang out with the mothers
10:45-11:15 rush further across town to practive some songs with Rocky and Shinya for the chapel we will do together next week
11:15-12:30 practice
12:30-1:00 go back across town to meet a friend for lunch
1:00-2:00 eat with friend (again try to converse while controling and feeding Hana)

8:00 Hana to bed, talk with Daddy while he eats (he just got home)
9:00 relax a little
10:00-11:30 work out
11:30 bath

now I am doing my own thing, and it is almost 1am, what a day! Craziness, why did I write all that down, I have no idea, maybe to remember someday how hectic life used to be, when I am retired and have forgotten what busy means (yea right like that will ever happen!)

workout today:
55 minutes on home stepper, 4000 steps, 560 calories
abs, legs, stretch

breakfast: spinach bake, toast, yogurt
lunch: small chicken rice dish, salad
snack: a few strawberries with Hana
dinner: scrambled egg with fresh tomato (mmmm yummy! the tomato gets really tart when heated quickly at the end of the scramble!!!), boiled spinach, carrot salad, a little bit of rice

I had an AWESOME Bible study with the ladies at the kindergarten today. My first time to go without Rocky, he couldn't be there. It was neat, I was able to teach a quick lesson in Japan, and then allowed the ladies to ask any questions they wanted to. They had some great questions about Jesus, his disciples, basics about the Bible like what is the Old and New Testament, etc. We also talked about Hana's adoption and infertility, the miracle of babies. It was such a neat time with those ladies. I often feel my Japanese is inadequate for a Bible study but one of the ladies asked a difficult question about why Judas was a disciple of Jesus if He was going to betray him and have him killed. After I explained some things to her, she exlaimed "OH that makes so much sense, I understand now!" I was so honored to hear that comment. I guess in some ways my very SIMPLE Japanese makes it easier to understand these sometimes difficult and deep issues. I was so excited that God spoke through me today in a way she could understand! Thank you Jesus!!! I only get to meet with this group of ladies about 3 or 4 times a YEAR, so I pray they all come back and we can cover some meaningful information in the short times we will have together!

Off to bed, it is after 1am
