Is this more than you bargained for yet?

Each time we move I become more convinced that our responsibility as Christians is to wait patiently, openly and expectantly for God to let us know what He has for us to do in whatever new place He’s put us. Sometimes that instruction comes immediately. Sometimes He asks us to wait for His timing. Sometimes…

http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=2539741&server=vimeo.com&show_title=0&show_byline=0&show_portrait=0&color=d8d8d8&fullscreen=1 Some guy recorded street musicians around the globe, cumulatively collaborating on a great old ditty. The result is wonderfully world-shrinking… (Found on Gizmodo)

Garden Work

Gardens are the big project this summer — for Nicole anyway. Mine is the deck, but that’s a different story. Nic’s goal is to have a decent-sized vegetable garden going up the hill in our backyard, and she and her dad have complex plans for how to achieve this. Last weekend we decided we’d ease…

Fear

Our fears are dramatized for us on the evening news, exaggerated so that single events appear as nation-wide disasters, so that one person’s tragedy becomes a likely outcome for any one of us — at any moment! People…
