The Upside-Down Life
The other thing that came right back was the “being a Mom feeling.” Nothing much was really getting done here – just feeding, dressing, undressing, washing, unwashing, entertaining, refereeing, listening, negotiating, coaching, anticipating, teaching, guarding, and eradicating (some) sin. Pretty much took everything I had to give. Lots of sweetness and love but no great sense of accomplishment.
Tell Me A Story
At Celebrate 2018, we’ll be telling stories about the heroes of our faith, our relatives in the Scriptures who’d never heard of God before and yet dared to follow this God into exploits and adventures that revealed their worst selves—and God’s very best.
Connected to Others
I believe there is someone in your life God has uniquely prepared for you to bless. They have been prepared for you and you have been prepared for them. I believe that it’s time to ask God to lead you to that person. Don’t be surprised if it’s someone you already have a relationship with. Jesus is ready to do his work through you. All He needs is your availability.
Stories from the Field – Carmen
Recently, the government of Veracruz discovered a mass grave on one of the local beaches that was filled with more than 250 dismembered bodies. Carmen was notified and asked to provide a DNA sample for her son to determine if his was one of the bodies.
Can you imagine as a mother being asked to do such a thing? Unfortunately, this is all too common in Mexico, where violence and corruption are out of control—there is no one to trust and no one to offer consolation or counsel.
