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.

Tricia and I think on the same wavelength, which is a good reason for you to pray for her. Poor thing. I knew when she went on a trip with Nate across the country she would come back with an idea or two for the program and here it is. Take a look at this photo and see what comes to mind.

Some would say, “Nice flowers...I guess.” Others would say, “The exposure on that should be bumped up a little.” But Tricia immediately thought of something better.

Here on the top of Beartooth Pass, at almost 11,000 feet above sea level, were flowers. There wasn’t anybody around to enjoy them. There weren’t people paid to plant flowers for the flocks of visitors. Not a lot of people come to this particular spot, evidently. But the flowers didn’t care. They were simply doing what they did best, which is, be flowers and bloom and give glory to a creative God who gave us color and light and an infinite numbers of things to cause wonder in us.

Her next leap of logic for you was this question: What do you do for God that only God sees? How do you glorify God by just being who he created you to be, not to be showy, but what naturally springs from your soul as you go about life?

Do you sing while you vacuum? I have to admit, that’s not me, and my family is grateful for it. Do you smile at people who pass you by on the road? I assume there are a limitless number of things people do simply because they are made to praise.

What is it that you do? Or maybe the question should be, what does God cause you to do to bring him glory in the unseen, unknown places of your life?

And if you can’t think of anything, ask God to start that work in you. Don’t just wish you were a flower. Let God grow something inside that can’t help but spring forth with life.

Beautiful photo.. beautiful words, bringing to mind the saying, "Bloom, where you are planted.." I guess that means even if it is not where others may praise your acts, but where you can praise God, and His. :)
