Where I work, everything is an acronym.  As short as two.  As long as five.  But everything is shortened to an acronym.  So LWSL fits right in.

Living Well, Spending Less is one on my new favorite blogs.  I love Ruth Sukoup's story.  I love her meaning.  I love her writing.  And today when her newsletter came out I was once again amazed by her.  And ironically enough, as I was reading her news letter, my clock was playing How Great Thou Art.  Fitting.

You see this week she is writing from Israel.  Check out this paragraph -

Here in Israel especially I am learning so much about my own faith as the stories from the Bible literally come alive.  Yesterday we walked down the Mount of Olives and ended up in the Garden of Gethsemane.  We also visited the excavation site of the City of David and the Pool of Siloam, as well as the place where the Temple once stood, and where Jesus overturned the money changer’s tables.  There is something a little bit indescribable about seeing and touching these places that are so familiar and yet so foreign. 

The bible stories came to life for me too.  Wow. And as I read on, I realized that the project
Museum of the Bible  Is actually happening in Washington, DC.  Just a little over an hour from our home.   And the family that owns Hobby Lobby is behind this whole project.  WHO.  DOES.  NOT.  LIKE.  HOBBY LOBBY?!

So when I saw the opportunity to be part of  One Million Names  I knew I didn't want to miss out!  

It doesn't sound like it will be open until next year but I will certainly be making a trip to find my little name =)

Have a great Saturday!
