What a challenging message we had at Crosswinds tonight. Eric Weaver talked about how one of the first words kids learn is 'Mine'! He began at the beginning: Genesis 1:1 . . . God created the heavens and the earth. He challenged us to speak of 'our' stuff as it truly is: God's. So, this isn't Sumana's blog, it's God's blog. It's not Sumana's van, it's God's van. Sumana is not MY child, she's God's child. We're going to try to catch each other over the next week and say, 'It's God's!'
Tomorrow one of my most special and long-time friends is moving (she's taking her whole family with her!) God has abundantly provided for all the details over the last few months to move the Mays family to ALASKA! UGH!! Does unlimited long distance work to Alaska???? If you'd like to see how God has worked check out their blogspot: Mays Missive. I'm soooo excited for them, but sooooo very sad to lose not only our neighbors of 17 years, but also good friends. For you teens from the 80s, I'm playing 'Friends' for offertory tomorrow. "Though it's hard to let you go, in the Father's hands we know, that a lifetime's not too long to live as friends." Sigh, if I can play without sobbing, it will be a miracle!
