Month: March 2007 Kathryn’s Letters and another birthday

What a blessing it has been to be able to occasionally talk with Kathryn on the phone and also to receive her letters from Jinja, Uganda where she’s working in an orphanage.  I know as she wraps up the month of March there, she’s likely thinking that the time is moving too swiftly!

Month: March 2007 Humbling

My name is Pride. I am a cheater. I cheat you of your God-given destiny… because you demand your own way.

I was standing in the kitchen a little while ago and, as I do most every morning, I was waiting for my tea water to boil.

I am deeply saddened at the passing of a tremendously blessed and gifted musician, pianist, Roger Bennett. I will greatly miss his marvelous gift and ability to share gospel truths, encouraging words, laughs and… hope in sorrow.   I will miss his integral part of the beautiful dynamic of Legacy 5.  I will miss anticipating and attending the music continue reading

Month: March 2007 Today’s Slices

Month: March 2007 I will look up

If I look down and see my feet and the rocky ground beneath — or look down and see not my feet but shifting waves crashing all around me, a wave of panic washes over me and I fear I will sink or be washed away in the flood of fear. But, in the most peculiar of all, continue reading
