the spaghetti dinner was a success and a lot of fun!
lukus and i went to ohio for a week to visit family and friends before we head out. we were reminded of how beautiful 75 degree weather is:)! we were able to stay with my mother & father-in-law. that was a blessing! seeing them and being around them is always so much fun! they are really great people! my brother & sister-in-law has a bonfire friday night...so we got to see all our old Bible study friends....i love seeing old friends, but it makes me miss them all so much! i was reminded that i know some amazing people!
while we were at my in-laws house, lukus and i went back to the barn to visit with the horses...
lukus convinced me to climb up on the barn roof with him...i am REALLY scared of heights...but he looked like he was having so much fun climbing up there, so i gave in and decided to live a little. we climbed on to the roof.
it was beautiful! it was a perfect, untainted view of the pasture and the woods behind it.
it was so peaceful, so quiet, so worth the climb! it kind of took me to a different place...
while in ohio, lukus & i, 0nce again, experienced the generosity of His people!
i know there are people in this world that do some pretty horrible things, but
those are not the people we've been experiencing. there are so many people that do some pretty amazing things!
God is so good! there are people making a dent in the horrible, that is increasingly becoming bigger! i am so excited to be seeing that of His people!
we depart in a little less than 2 weeks...i pray we are, and will contribute to the dent in the horrible!
how? love God, and love his people, meaning all people.
in case you are like me, and find it hard to get a hold of a book that keeps your attention, here are a few suggestions:
irresistible revolution by shane claiborne
Jesus for president by shane claiborne
blue like jazz by donald miller
myth of a christian nation by gregory boyd (don't let the name turn you off!)
under the overpass
a few that have challenged me!
