Blessings to you Seth and companions. Very timely for me as well. May peace in the spirit of peace and love accompany you. I am entering a season of contemplation and focus on those most important aspects of life. It’s about time!
What are we to do?
First we have to see the world as it is: we are swimming in toxins – too much food has resulted in a diabetes epidemic, too many drugs and we have an addiction crisis.
Too much noise, and we can’t hear ourselves think, much less God’s voice.
Good to hear from you again, Kathy. It’s been a while! Glad to hear that you are moving into this new season of life.
wow I love this!! I have recently returned form the most amazing 2 week journey…PVT in Swaziland. Talk about time to slow down, take notice and just enjoy what God gave us. We had very limited wifi…which was actually refreshing and I didn’t even miss it. I got to see my daughter acting in faith and obedience and it did my heart good! I got to see the real life of a 3rd world country. I knew it was bad from reading about it and hearing and watching the news…but seeing it first hand changes your heart and you life. My life is forever changed, my heart also. I know God called me to that PVT for many reasons, but the most evident one to me was Him calling me to do more, I can’t wait to go back! Thank you for your vision of taking parents on a small part of this journey with our racers!!
Thanks Seth and– Vaya Con Dios mi compadre! There is a place of “holy discontent” where like someone stirring a stick in an ice fishing hole to prevent freezing over volitional effort is made to stay in a *settled yet fluid* place. The commissioning of disciples who traveled light is a good metaphor. It’s one of the things I love about the Bethel Colony of Mercy here in Lenoir, NC. There is no room to hide from humanity’s needs nor God’s ever faithful hand. Blessings my brother.
Sissy – good to hear this report! You’ve been on a kingdom journey since saying goodbye to Taylor. I’m looking forward to hearing what’s next for you.
How is she progressing in thinking about the Cambodia base as an option?
I think she is definitely thinking about that. I am praying for her to listen to the Lord and what He has planned for her.
I have discussed our conversations with her…so hoping its sinking in! Thank you
I have certainly been on a journey…and what a wonderful journey….Taylor actually baptized me in Swaziland…it was the best night surrounded by such amazing racers and parents!
Feel free to pursue Taylor!!
That’s not my real email??. I have it but I never check it. I just saw your testimony on the internet and it made my heart glad. It would be a pleasure to talk with you at some point. My landline is my office…the company Is Aslan management. If you’re so inclined, feel free to call and leave a message. The number is 781-449-9871.
May God bless you.
The best wide receiver you ever roomed with,
This is timely. Literally seconds before I saw this email I was wrestling with the Dallas Willard quote, “Didn’t God give you quite enough time to do what He expects you to do?”
