“Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” – Isaiah 55:6-7

(This is from Lee Duigon’s blog!)
Byron the Quokka here, mates–and we’ve got a winner for our Bell Mountain trivia contest. Twenty questions, we asked–and one reader got all twenty right. Why, she couldn’t’ve known Bell Mountain better if she’d spent all her vacations there! All of us quokkas on Rottnest Island are proud of her. And the winner is… [trumpet […]
G’day! Or is it? The big 50,000-comment contest is over, tomorrow I’ll announce the winner of the Bell Mountain trivia contest…and then what? Byron the Quokka here–and then, I guess, the Quokka’s occupation’s gone. Shakespeare used to say that. He was a quokka at heart. Oh! And look at this! We’ve got a Quokka T-shirt […]
Finally! The last question of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest!!
(This is a post from Lee Duigon’s blog!)
G’day–Byron the Quokka here. And I can’t help feeling wistful because the big 50,000-Comment Contest is over and this will be the last question, No. 20, in the Bell Mountain trivia contest. After this, I don’t know what to do with myself. Suddenly playing Clue solitaire seems kind of unexciting. Anyhow, here it is, Question […]
And here is Question No. 19 of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest!
(This is from Lee Duigon’s blog.)
Oh, boy! Byron the Quokka here, with the next-to-last question in our Bell Mountain trivia contest! Question No. 19! And that’s Mum and Dad whispering answers to each other so that you blighters out there can’t overhear. Or else they’re pretending to be a pair of bookends. Of course they both know the answer. But […]
I want to thank all those who have prayed for Japan. Typhoon Hagibis has passed, but not without severe damage. As of now, about 50 people have lost their lives in the storm, and some people are still missing. Please pray for the comfort of those who lost their loved ones and their homes. Please pray that God would work in the hearts of His people.

Byron the Quokka here, to announce the winner of our milestone once-in-a-lifetime comment contest! The winner, the reader who posted No. 50,000, which will never happen again, is….trumpets, please!
“Evreilly”! (We know her as Evelyn.) Her comment came in late last night, just as we were packing it in for the day. You can find her comment attached to the post, “My Interview with Lee Strobel”–it’s a great comment, by the way. So Ev wins an official Quokka T-shirt, either in Large (very dark blue) or Extra Large (bright red). All we need from you, mate, is your mailing address: please email it, and tell us your choice of shirts.
Now watch all the comments dry up because the contest is over. I told Lee that wouldn’t happen on my watch, so I’ll have to find some way to keep things hopping.
“You have been chosen for this recognition because of the encouragement and inspiration you bring to your readers.“
The way this works: Thank the person who nominated you, and share their blog. Think of five bloggers that encourage and inspire you and nominate them. List five things about yourself. Lastly, ask your nominees five questions. Why five? Because it is the number that signifies grace.
This typhoon, Japan’s nineteenth typhoon of the year, is predicted to hit the eastern part (most of Honshu) of Japan sometime on the 12th, Sat. or 13th, Sun. The typhoons that have previously come have caused enough trouble already: landslides, houses losing their roofs, etc. The speed of this new typhoon is 50 meters per second. This typhoon has the same strength as the typhoon that caused 1,200 casualties a couple of years ago. Please pray for Japan, especially for God’s people, that the damage won’t be too severe and that there won’t be too many casualties. Please pray that God will use this typhoon to make His people rethink their ways and come back to God and ask for His forgiveness. The salvation of God’s elect is the most important thing. Since all is in God’s hands, it’s not really something to worry about, but I’ll really appreciate your prayers.
1 Peter 5:7 – “Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.”
My family and I
have recently been attending a house church that some friends go to. I have
really enjoyed it, and wanted to share something that really stood out to me,
one Sunday night.
One guy said
something that really made me think. He said (paraphrasing here): “The world is
telling you to find identity in the things around you. Whether it be money,
your job, or what people think of you, the world tells us to find identity in
things of this world. We, as Christians, however, need to stop trying to find
identity in things of this world, and start finding identity in Jesus. He’s the
only one that can satisfy us, the only One that can truly make us who we were
meant to be.”
