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
Sunday, July 2, 2006Yesterday I posted a piece that I had written back in April. I thought it interesting.
Today, I leave for Switzerland. My home is still not completely settled; my kitchen arrived after Deutsch Schule began. I would much rather stay home and get some things settled than head off to the Alps -- Now I ask you, "What is wrong with this picture?" I long to stay put for just a few weeks and settle in...
I'm a nester. I cannot deny it. It is the way God made me. I nest. I snuggle in and dig a taproot. I did so in my home in Texas, and I am doing it here in Germany. But, I must leave this nest and travel down to Switzerland, up into the Alps and sleep in an unknown bed, shower in an unknown shower, and read in an unknown chair. It is supposed to be a retreat, so I am trying not to take too much stuff - i.e. computer, work stuff, GERMAN!
What do you take to a place that you don't know, to be with people that you don't know, to be questioned on things you really don't know about?
I resort to my favorites: books, journals, pens, computer, camera, tea, personal cup, more clothes than I need, slippers, and my pillows...
I'm glad we are driving ;-)
Do I just end up taking my nest with me???????
I won't be on the internet for at least a week - I'll check in when I get back.
Hummmmm - what does one wear to the Alps? "The hills are alive..." sung in my very own impression of Maria!
May God be able to tap on this heart, as I seek rest and rejuvenation with HIM.
ps AW TOZER comes in a few days!!!!!!!!!!! (i.e. my kitty)

A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
