Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

I just had a conversation with a friend this morning who works at a trade and has seen his business drop to nearly nothing. He goes to our church and he was in the parking lot of a gas station where people park their cars with For Sale signs. His son has his eye on a nice Ford truck, big tires, rusted out, about $1,500.

I asked him how he was doing and I could tell from the look in his eyes. He didn't even have to answer. Life has just beaten him up. He's been selling everything of value he has to stay afloat.

We talked about the "waiting" message we'd heard on Sunday and how sometimes you have to do something, you have to move, but in the midst of "doing" you can still wait. I think that's the hard thing about faith. To exercise it you have to move , you have to roll up your sleeves and do some hard work, but simultaneously you know that you're not the one pulling the strings. This is out of your ability to control.

Contrast that with the news yesterday that Tony Dungy is retiring from football. Why would anyone give up a lucrative coaching career? I heard him talk about his family, and I know he has some young children. Plus, in an interview before the last playoff game, he talked about the murder rate in Indianapolis and how he thought he could be a good influence working harder in the community. Seems like God is at work in his heart, too.

God is up to something in all of this. He's stirring and "yeasting us." Don't underestimate the power of a conversation in the parking lot. Maybe you'll have one today.

I have been married for 24 years and my husband and I always talked about a dog he always thought was very cute it was a shitzu.
about 10 years ago my mother inlaw past away and my husband took it very hard they were very close and every day he would go to the cemetary and spend hours and hours
so I kept praying and thinking what can I do. so I said it hurt me to see him hurt and I felt hopeless.
