Tomorrow is another big day for Jacob and I and I would appreciate your prayers as we head home. It will be an extremely long day of travel. Praying for strength, a true and deep sense of peace and calm and of course safety. I can't wait to share what we have been up to with you!

Tomorrow is THE VERY big day. The last 3 days have been of preparation and rehearsal. Tomorrow we begin the very long journey.

I ask for your prayers - for the peace of Christ to envelope me, for his arms to comfort and calm me (and Jake), that he would strengthen me to endure the long hours and days ahead, and please for safety and protection all around us.

I am so blessed to be able to share this time with my son, and I can't wait to share it with you as well.

We are in the midst of a baseball tournament in Ontario this weekend. Lot's of travel back and forth over the border and lots of baseball games! We are 3 wins, 0 losses and 1 tie. Semi finals and championship today -

Just praying there are no injuries and no ugly games - we had a real tough one yesterday with coaches (from the other team) screaming at one of the umpires (who seriously had the strike zone the size of an eye of a needle) and getting thrown out of the games - very tension filled - and it was all for what??? a 14 year old baseball game??

Seriously ... priorities need to be in place!

Read an extremely thought provoking book this weekend written by
Gene Edwards (Click his name to go to a list of his books). "The Prisoner in the Third Cell." It is a book about John the Baptist. Not your run of the mill fictional account of a biblical hero - but a deep insight into possibly thoughts that went thru his head after completely devoting his life to the King of Kings and then facing the end of his life as he did.

Yes, it is fiction, but it raised some good and thoughtful questions about the suffering in this life. A short book. I bought it for my kindle.

The words "And blessed are you if you are not offended with me" at first are confusing, and then comforting.

After reading it - I realized
Gene Edwards was the author of "A Tale of Three Kings" which was another amazing book I read several years ago. That one was about Saul, David and Absalom. Definitely 2 books that are 'quick reads' but definitely worth your time and will stay with you as you ponder the hurt and the feelings of abandonment we often feel when our prayers are not answered as we hope they would be.
