You

My sweet sisters,

I wanted to check in and let you know that I'm alive! Nate and I have been hiding, so I've not been on the computer in about a week. I've been sitting still, both physically and spiritually. Rest...sweet sweet rest. And time for two lovebirds to have some long overdue extended face time together.

There have been some messy events happening around he and I recently. Life really. Not really over our own personal lives, but over some of our dearest loved ones. Just the pure difficult reality of life. The battle is fierce and unrelenting. And so is the purpose of our God for His people and His glory.

I'll reconnect here in blogworld with you soon. But as I thought about you in the dwindling days of our vacation, I wanted to leave you with a youtube clip. It's a prayer, rooted in the African American spoken word, which I love. I was actually present at this church during its evening of worship back in 2001. The Spirit used her words to alter me and I have not forgotten them. I pray their power and life still you in your busy day and cause your heart to seek His face.

Psalm 27:8 "My heart says of you, 'Seek His face!'
                 Your face, LORD, I will seek."

So glad to hear you are hiding!!! It is something we have had to do bi-annually while we have been married. It is always so good and I treasure every moment.

Wonderful video!

Love,

Thank you, Shelly! This is exactly what I needed to hear first thing this morning! If you don't mind, I'm going to borrow it, so I can share it with anyone who stops by my blog, too! I'm looking forward to hearing from you again, soon! I'm praying for you!
Love,
