an unauthorized guest post.


My brother didn't know he'd be guest posting on my blog today, but he is.

Chet has been interning at a church in Memphis this summer, and his ability to verbalize his experiences absolutely wows me. I love that kid.

I'll be back this afternoon with some regularly scheduled inspiration, but until then, read Chet's latest post about the youth group's recent trip to inner city Atlanta. I promise, you won't be disappointed.

"Because it is easy to love when you’re loved back. It’s easy to hug children who hug back. It’s easy to give a meal to man who is starving. It’s easy to pour yourself out to people who want to be filled. But loving when you don’t get loved back is difficult. Planting seeds when you may never know if those seeds grow into something beautiful or fall by the way side is hard. There is no closure .... And here, we catch a glimpse of our heavenly Father. A Father who loves us when we do not love back."

Chet is having the most amazing experience! I have no doubt that for many years to come, he will reflect on the events of this summer.
