Tuesday…not at all as we intended

 Well I must say, this trip has not gone as we planned. Our baggage still hasn’t arrived in Kisumu, and they are telling us that Lawyer’s bag was separated and may not arrive until Thursday (we fly home on Friday.)

As we were sitting at the airport waiting on our bags to arrive (we were told they would arrive so expectantly we went.) we called and asked out Stve(our administrator), Emily (our social worker), and Kennedy (our head teacher) to meet us to go shopping and join us for lunch. The plan was then to go and deliver everything to the children in the afternoon. Well…things did not go as planned.

“I just don’t feel like it.” – ever said that?

“I just don’t feel like it.” Those were my words tonight. Christi wanted to go run and I just wasn’t in the mood. Seriously, I didn’t want to run. She didn’t “force” me to, but you know how that is. If I didn’t run with her, I would feel like a jerk and she wasn’t going to tell me it was ok not to run. In fact it was the opposite, she kept prodding me…pushing me, I didn’t enjoy it.

My View To the Top

blogger-image--123952385 

There’s something about a mountain that says, “conquer me!” I don’t know if everybody is made this way, but I sure am. Since I was a child, every time I have found myself at the base of a mountain, I have felt this urging to get to the top! When I look at a mountain, I do like the challenge it poses (there have been many that have conquered me), but I don’t simply want to scale a mountain just for the challenge. I want to get a view from the top. I want the view from on high.

Confession – I want to be “that” family!

So growing up we would watch reruns on Nick at Night of tv shows from the 50-60’s (at least that was the setting). They were dead head shows when nothing else was on, but they were entertaining. I was a kid…it was on tv…enough said!

Seizing The Can’t Miss Moment…

In the background a moment happens. David’s men say, “take the easy layup!” This moment MUST be from God! It makes sense doesn’t it? There would be no struggle, no more loss of life, we will all walk out together with Saul’s head and make our way to the palace.

Gotta Have Margins!

I remember in high school getting a “U” for conduct in my English class. I asked the teacher why I had received this and she pointed out that “U” stood for “unconscious.” (English followed swim practice).
