I WONDER. . . .

THE RESPONSE TO OUR MOVING HAS BEEN REALLY INTERESTING. WE WERE NOT SURPRISED BY THE RESPONSE OF SOME OF OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO THOUGHT WE WERE CRAZY. WHAT HAS BROKEN MY HEART IS SOME BELOVED BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST WHO COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WE MOVED BECAUSE GOD CALLED US. RESPONSES HAVE BEEN THAT WE MOVED BECAUSE OF THE SCHOOLS OR OTHER THINGS. THEY CAN'T ACCEPT THE FACT THAT GOD WOULD CALL US TO A SMALLER CHURCH AND A SMALLER SALARY. SINCE WHEN DOES GOD OPERATE LIKE THE WORLD? HE NEVER PROMISED US WHEN WE ACCEPTED THE CALL THAT WE WOULD KEEP MAKING MORE AND MORE MONEY AND GO TO BIGGER CHURCHES. WE HAVE BEEN CALLED TO SERVE AND GO WHEREVER THAT LEADS US. KELLY AND I HAVE BEEN SEEKING THE LORD, SO THAT WE COULD GET TO A POINT WHERE MONEY WAS NEVER AN ISSUE. I'VE BEEN ASKING THE LORD ARE THERE OTHER THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT THE WORLD'S INFLUENCED ME SO, THAT I'VE TOTALLY MISSED OUT ON WHAT GOD SAYS. I'VE BEEN ASKING HIM TO REVEAL THOSE THINGS TO ME, SO THAT I CAN ALIGN MY HEART WITH HIS.

Just like you can't pick your family, you can't control what others think or say. I am only mad because you guys left us! (OK, not mad but we sure do miss you). What a cool and well deserved change of pace for ya'll. Anytime you need a place to crash, you know where.....
