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
My bedroom holds many memories of family and friends.
My red-prayer-chair sits in my bedroom, as does this card my mom gave me for my birthday one year. Every year around my birthday I remember the day she gave it to me. It was in the year 2000. I had met a man on a plane in October after coming home from a mission trip to Holland over the summer. This man would change my life. He took me down a road of expectation. I hadn't been down that road for many years. He was and is a famous jazz musician.
But this one card holds memories of that experience because my mom was having to deal with the possibility that I might, just might begin a relationship with a man that she 'culturally' might have problems accepting, and yet knowing that as the wonderful believer she is ... well, she would just have to! If we loved each other.
The card is in black and white and says, "What a delightful difference one single life makes!" The card had/has many levels of meaning. The possibility of the married kind of love for me was real. It might have happened - but 9-11 sent us on different paths. His pain in New York was great - my pain in Flower Mound was given to God.
and He carries this one single life - continually!
PS my favorite line in the above song: Teach me to pray, Teach me to love to obey, Teach me to pray.
A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
