God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past re-posted here, I will continue writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

Loving God in the Moment

I live in an incredibly clean country.
Granted this is not necessarily all of Europe. However Germany - Germany is clean.
People here wash their trash. We must divide all of our trash into categories: paper, cartons, re-cycle packaging, glass, and bio. I remember days when I could just dump trash in the garbage, separate the paper and the plastic, and feel ecologically proficient! And I could deposit any really stinky stuff down the garbage disposal. Ahhhh es ist weg! (Ahhh it is outta' here!)
No, we must separate it all. And believe me there is a pretty hefty fine if it is not done correctly. But, I am finding that even when trash is cleaned up - it still stinks. Walking around in the closest large town on trash day, the oder wafts across your nostrils - especially during the hot months!
The spiritual correlations are innumerable ...
Aber, (but) I must admit I really would rather live in a clean environment instead of a filthy one - I'm certainly thankful that God cleans me up for eternity! Cause without Him... well, without Him, I still stink!
My Trash: cleaned, and organized daily!
A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
