I am observing an organization that is very important to me and am starting to question some of the things that are going on.  I understand that this is a fluid organization and things happen for a reason but when do you speak up and say I don’t understand what is going on and what is your reasoning behind it.  Iwon’t say I don’t  like the changes that are being made because  I  don’t understand the reasoning behind those decisions so I am not going to say I don’t like the changes. 

My Life Group is awesome and really the best thing right now.  Those women are incredible and my life is richer because of them.  I don’t know any other group that I want to be a part of.  I am excited to share this group with others starting in the fall when we open up the group possibly.  Another exciting thing is the possibility of going on another weekend away (Weston 2…hmmm sounds good to me).

 OH ROYALS, 5 game winning streak – thank you very much 🙂

I have been following the story of Kelsey Smith a lot since I got an e-mail about it yesterday.  I was watching the news and the all out search for this missing girl.  It has really captured my heart and I weep for this family.  I watched the news tonight and they think they might have captured the truck that might have been involved and they have a person of interest.

There is a reason why I am talking about this — the reality of a person doing an all out search for us…He looks until he finds us.  I am a prodigal.  I have spent my time on things that don’t fulfill.  I have had my “gods” .  God desires to be in relation with me – He loves me and wants a relationship with me.  He was on a search for me – I turned in 1991 to him.  I praise God that I understood what Christianity meant – a personal relationship with him not religion, rules, etc. but a living and breathing relationship.  I show my love by obeying him.  I loved what Pastor Dan said this weekend (actually two thoughts):

1.  We need to commit what we know about ourselves to whatever we know about Christ.

2. Once that commitment is made we need to do it daily because as humans we take it back.

Okay, so this from a girl’s kidnapping – my prayer that the family will know what happened to this girl and that I would surrender all to Christ…

This is an usual Monday for me…I have no Life Group…I am not going to see the women who have been impacting on my life.  I admire each one of them for a different reason – one for just pursuing Christ with everything she has inside of her and perserving through the stuff of her life, another one her perservance, another one for her dedication to prayer (hmm, there are a lot of them in this group), another one just sticking with it and being patient where she is at,   one just here energy and just her outgoing personality,  and there are a couple others in our group.  I will miss them – I was disappointed that we are not having it tonight – due to some circumstances beyond our control.

I am in the midst of making some changes or hoping I make some changes – I looked at some stuff and it woke me up to how things are and yes, I am going to have to make a big change here in the next couple months.  I don’t have a choice – if I did I would stick with things as they are but I can’t.  It’s going to rain and I don’t know when but it will and I need to be prepared. 

Bad Royals!!!

Okay, so right after the Royals were one of the hottest baseball teams we had to turn to one of the coldest teams.  As I am writing this we are actually winning 4-1 and the pitching has been great.   I don’t know if Bell with make it past this season and I just think they need to acquire some bats during the off-season or even later this season….

If I were the GM…
