Waiting and waiting….

Waiting. My mind tells me waiting is a bad place to be and so I do everything I can to make waiting go faster. It’s uncomfortable. It doesn’t feel like progress and at some point, it even starts to feel like we are regressing. Awhile ago I wrote this verse out on a card: Wait … [Read More]

Dashing Through the Snow…

It is surreal to think this may be the last winter we pull on some winter gear and take a sled out to the biggest hill in Lafayette- at least for awhile! But what a wonderful surreal it is. Not even the simple excitement of that first snow, or the winter holidays, or the annual … [Read More]

Jelly Beans and Sour Patch Kids

There are over 1,000,000 full-time Christian workers in the United States; while over one half of the world’s population, 2,200,000,000 people, have only 2,417 full-time Christian workers. This is 1 per every 230 vs 1 per every 450,000… and that’s reality. The numbers don’t lie. When people tell me there is a lot of work … [Read More]
