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 costs the little daily things - serving the meals, providing the needs, asking for favors nicely, refusing favors gently.
"It demands that we use our gifts for our own communities as well as for others. It demands that we make relationships a priority. It demands that we make community for others. It demands that we share ourselves, our minds, our insights, and our time with one another. Most of all, it demands that we allow the people in our lives to be who they are and grow as they can."
I read this yesterday. I'm chewing on it.
I think I struggle with some of these things. That whole sharing of ourselves, our minds, our insights, our time... I don't know if I do that well...
I want to love this community in entirety.
I am praying for God to be my strength in this.
"Community is the only antidote we have to an individualism that is fast approaching the heights of the pathological in this world."
An unknown family on a North Sea Beach - a gift for me from God.
Seen from afar - enjoyed this sweet interchange...once again - learning from children.
"Alone, I am what I am,
but in community I have the chance to become everything that I can be."
