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
It has been a while since I last posted.
I have now returned from Czech Republic, looking forward to a short visit with company from the USA, work has been exhilarating and a bit taxing and I've been pondering in the wee hours L-I-F-E when L-I-F-E hasn't been moving at an ICE Zug's speed! (the fast train in Europe)...
When I get several notices from friends and family that they are worried about me because of this long absence, and they are ready for some new thoughts and pictures...
I must admit it causes me to wonder - what shall I write about?
The work that is going on here?
The new avenues God is bringing me down?
The old cracked roads He is mending?
The smiles, the tears, the laughter, the joy? (which as we all know the latter may or may not consist of happiness...)
I honestly don't know. There are so many facets in my life right now. So much that is happening. And yet most of it is too personal and too intimate to share on an internet site. Too many people living life in a new way and seeing God's hand move in their hearts and their lives.
And yet, some say, they still would like to hear what is happening in my heart, in my life, in my world.
And there I stop.
It has so expanded and so exploded in the last few years. And yet, has it changed?
I still wake each morning glad for another day, interested in what it holds in store, intrigued at the different nuances and the fun new angles He brings.
Relationships are, as always, difficult. They mean that one must remove themselves of their pre-suppositions and receive what is offered. I learned long ago not to judge a book by it's cover (so trite and yet so true). Some very 'normal' people are not normal and some very 'abnormal' people are as right as rain. I've never enjoyed the labels the world attaches to almost any and every person.
And so you have it... another random ranting from your mutating missionary (giggles, laughs, sighs, a few tears, and a great big hug to the world that God has given me to love!)
A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
