Hey guys. Here are a hodgepodge of updates on what’s going on my way.
1. Grandma’s Health — Our extended family is on a roller coaster — long slow period of upward progress from hip surgery & brain surgery to fix a growing blood clot, followed by downward news that quickly gets everyone’s attention. Today alone I heard 3 separate sets of news about her: good, bad, & good. Don’t know what to believe. I just keep praying.
2. Bible Reading — I was reading in Ezekiel today. My "1 big thing" was from Ezekiel 37:1-6. Wow! When God resurrects a body from the bare, dry bones, NO ONE will doubt that He IS God.
3. Son’s Basketball Team — Every time I meet a "PK" (Pastor’s Kid) or "MK" (Missionary’s Kid) I ask them what that was like growing up with their parents in full-time ministry. You’d be surprised how many of them don’t have very good memories. I don’t want that for my kids. So I’m taking on coaching my son’s basketball team. It’s the BIG time…3rd grade. Dunking is outlawed. 🙂 Practice starts tomorrow. I’m psyched about it.
4. Big Time Meetings — Can’t say much about it, but I’ve had the chance to see God work in MANY ways & in MANY hearts recently. Breaks you down. Lifts you up. "Red Sea moments" (Exodus 14:13-14, 21-22). I have the GREATEST job in the world!
Whirlwind of activity. Miss you & love you guys.
