HOW LONG O LORD?

Last year I had lunch with one of my former RAs, Courtney, and she was telling me about an amazing family in their church, The Turnbulls.  A family committed to Christ by serving and caring for others.  I believe the husband is a deacon/elder (?) and the wife is a mother of their, then, 6 chidlren.  She was pregnant with their 7th.  During her 7th pregnancy, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Courtney told me of a web site they started to share their journey of faith, trust, and grace. 

I’ve thought of them often, and thought of them again yesterday after I read Todd Bolen’s blog, Hard Summer, about the summer of serious physcial maladies that his friends were/are experiencing and how he grieves for them. 

I then thought of Beirut, India, Uganda, Oregon, Valencia…all around the world people are hurting for all different reasons.  Reasons of maybe death, physical/verbal/sexual abuse, financial ruin, chemical addiction, war, divorce, disease, abandonment, persecution, Read the rest of this entry »

THE SWEAZY COUCH FOUND A GREAT HOME!

Erin & Jordan WalterThe eggplant couch has been blessed to find a new owner.  They’re newlyweds that met at TMC.  In fact, she had her RA interview in my Sweazy Apt while the RDs sat on this very couch and assessed her qualifications.  She was hired as an RA in CW Smith, wherein she enjoyed many other couches for a seaon.  But she has been reunited (and it feels so good) with the couch that started it all.  I should say, on behalf of all Sweazy occupants & visitors, that this iconic couch could not be going to a better home: a home where truth, laughter, biblical counseling, tears, grace, music, etc. will all take place…those are the things the couch is used to…thank you for making the transition seamless.  Please send pictures throughout the years and let us know how the couch is doing.

THE ARCHERS IN AFRICA

Ok, I don’t really know the Archers…I think I met them at Kerry Drew’s graduation party.  They now live in South Africa and they have a blog.  Lots of people have a blog, however, of the African based peeps that we know, the Archers seem to update it regularly…so I like it.  I see more of Kerry Drew on the Archers blog than on her own.  Check them out!
