what a privilege...

Granted it is only October but I think it is safe to say that my "phrase" of 2011 is this...

What a privilege it is!!!!!!

It is truly something amazing to be a part of something SO MUCH bigger than ourselves. 

The crazy part of all of this is if you would have told me before I went to EA that I would have the opportunity to be a part of this I WOULD HAVE LAUGHED IN YOUR FACE.

Right now it's vague and that's okay. Trust me when it is okay for me to share ALL of the details I will. 

But know this, the people that need to know KNOW and the people that can make it happen will KNOW soon enough. God is BIG. God is GOOD. God is FAITHFUL to HIS promises. God does place the lonely in homes. God is a father to the fatherless. It is WORTH IT to be involved in the lives of children. When people are obedient, crazy awesome, only God could have orchestrated all this, things happen.

Be there.

Presence matters.

Showing up matters.

It's what community is all about.

It's what holds a family together.

Be there.

Be in.

Be ALL in.


Ask questions.

Cry some.

Laugh more.

It's messy. 

It's hard. 

It is worth it.

and before you leave, give me a hug.
