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...
This one was written in the midst of Hurricane Katrina in 2005

family & friends
I'm tired. I have friends and family that are trying to get out of the Houston, Beaumont area. I have offered my house. It is a haven - but will it even be able to be used? The phone has not stopped ringing. I'm not sure that sleep will come tonight.
The roads are parking lots.
Does one loose their job if their employer won't let them leave? i.e. airports? We all know that airports are important to help people evacuate. What about those few that stayed and went to work - overwhelmed by the job - but realizing that they needed to be there or others would not be able to get out -- How many more cars would have been on the roads if the airports had shut down earlier then they absolutely have to. What of those courageous souls that go in to work - because they are either feeling like it is their job and responsibility; or because they are afraid of loosing their jobs.
Once again I lean on that truth that He is good.
Tonight when I close this computer I am thankful that I have learned to trust Him. I'm not so sure that I have always enjoyed the ride... :-) But, I can sure tell you that I'm thankful that I'm on the ride and not sitting on the sidelines.
Does it make it more real because of Katrina -- well, I have a better understanding as to why more people didn't leave any sooner than they did.
Please pray for the people of the Gulf Coast -- those that have left, those that are leaving, those that are stuck.
