Ready for Brazil

On Friday we leave for Brazil.  While there seems to be a lot of details that still need to be ironed out – we are basically ready to go.  Got our visas, places to sleep, airline tickets, and immunizations.  I’ll try and post a couple of updates while we are on the trip but I am making no promises.  Pictures and stories a plenty when we get back.

Climbing a Transmission Tower

A pretty amazing video of some maintenance guys climbing a radio tower.  Makes me wish I had majored in Transmission Tower Maintenance instead of Architecture.

IF - Proverb

Proverbs 1
20 Wisdom cries aloud in the street,
   in the markets she raises her voice;
at the head of the noisy streets she cries out;
   at the entrance of the city gates she speaks:
"How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing
   and fools hate knowledge?
If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you;
   I will make my words known to you.
Because I have called and you refused to listen,
   have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,
because you have ignored all my counsel
   and would have none of my reproof,
I also will laugh at your calamity;
   I will mock when terror strikes you,
when terror strikes you like a storm
   and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
   when distress and anguish come upon you.
Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer;
   they will seek me diligently but will not find me.
Because they hated knowledge
   and did not choose the fear of the LORD,
would have none of my counsel
   and despised all my reproof,
therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way,
   and have their fill of their own devices.
For the simple are killed by their turning away,
   and the complacency of fools destroys them;
but whoever listens to me will dwell secure
   and will be at ease, without dread of disaster."
