Thinking about you and your big changes.

Big moments are happening for you and I know our sweet Lord is among all of this craziness.

Praying for your decisions, your response and of course your heavy heart!

I know that we have no connection other than the world wide web and Jesus Christ, but as far as I am concerned, that is all the connection we need to be friends! ;-)
I have followed your blog for some time and I wanted you to know that you have made me laugh, made my cry and have encouraged me. I pray for you as often as I think of you and am thankful for the work that our gracious Lord is doing in your heart, life and marriage.

spoken at the outdoor retail store:

man: "what about these Patagonia shoes?"
me: "oh, well I really like their business ethics."
man: "what do you mean?"
me: "they give a lot back to the environment and conservation efforts."
man: "oh, I don't care about that."
