I love till it hurts (Part 2).

Yesterday I was sitting in front of the Eucharist for adoration and I was praying for all of you.  I had a lot of names and a lot of times I don’t get through it all so I have set up a a rotation.  I start at the beginning on some days and then switch […]

Phase 10 and other fun.

Phase 10, the game of all games.  Welll. . . maybe not.  It is actually super long and by the end I really just want to claw my eyes out . . . unless I am winning. . . of course.  We definitely do a lot of work here.  BUT, that does not mean that we […]

My attention span is 5 seco. . . oooo a little butterfly!

Whew, I know I have said this before but I’ll say it again: wow, we need prayer.  Not prayers from other people (although we need that too), but we need prayer for ourselves.  This seems like such an over-used statement.  I would normally think “DUH, we need prayer!  Why do we need to keep saying […]

P & W

Boy, am I tired or what . . .  I just finished a Men’s retreat for one of the local churches down here in Georgia.  I am just plain old weary.  We have been moving since they got here at 8:00 Friday night.  I am finally sitting down to rest. We pushed these guys.  We […]

God Desires our Worship:

What is worship?  It is choosing something continually over other things.  It is offering up your whole body and self to something.  I dunno what it is in your specific case but it has to be something.   You cannot live without giving yourself to something.  You can offer it up to material things: money, […]

Everyday

Sometimes we missionaries struggle to find things to talk about.  Why?  Why do we sit here in front of the computer and sometimes wonder what we can say to everybody?  Everybody has done it at least once.  At least once we have all said to ourselves that we need to write a blog . . […]

Youth Ministers: The Front Line

I am so grateful.  This past week we had over 50 youth ministers here for a retreat. It was a great time.  Sometimes, it can get really hard just ministering to high school teenagers who might or might not reject what you have to say.  It was rejuvenating to visit and talk with peers.  Others […]

Are you a nobody?

Are you willing to be a nobody? Two weeks ago, Jesus looked at me and asked me if I loved him.  After 4 days of wrestling with him and finally being pinned to the ground I said yes.  I thought the hard questions were over.  Shouldn’t the love question be it? Shouldn’t that be the […]

I love till it hurts

This is an honest but pure blog.  So please don’t judge.  Ever since I was a kid I would perpetually ask my mom “What if” questions.  I would be in the car with her and I would ask her all sorts of them!! What if the sky was green? What if fire hydrants squirted ice […]

Chirp…Chirp….silence

SOOOOOOOOOOOO, I’m going to start a silent retreat on Friday night.  An 8 DAY silent retreat. . . . hmmmmm. . . . don’t know how I feel about this.  I am excited, I am anxious, I am restless, I am confused. . . and a million other possibilities. I spent four days on the […]
