Post of the week from these parts here
… kinda crazy terrified to tell this story. No idea yet what’s going to happen.
But — this is the crazy that we’re up to.
So, fair warning:
Speak Words of Life Over Your Home
Apply practical steps to bring God’s presence, God’s Word into your home.
Reflect through guided questions, and involve your people in creative ways.

on repeat this week: Counting Every Blessing
Others may not understand you
But you have One who stands with you, for you,
And laid down His life for you because He wanted, needed, had to be with you.
Others may not really get you,
But you have One who left everything
to get to you.
Others may think you’re too much
But you have One who could never have
too much of you —
and only wants more of you.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
Share Whatever Is Good.
