tumors and testimonies

Undoubtedly, those of you familiar with The Village Church in Dallas have heard about lead pastor Matt Chandler's recent surgery to remove a tumor from his frontal lobe on Friday.

I don't have adequate words to say, nor do I even feel entitled to say anything at all concerning this matter- other than I am praying and will continue to pray for God's healing, His peace, and His purpose to be revealed through this trial.

A video of Matt before he entered surgery was particularly challenging and encouraging for me to watch.
Watch the video. Pray. Be encouraged that God is enough.

Dear I-35

Dear I-35...

the fog and the cold
bright lights and the road
city limit signs
120 miles
on the long stretch of I-35

too much time to think
distance and space
that keep me away
for six long days
on the long stretch of I-35

tears fall fast
24 hours didn't last
can't wait to get back
to smile and laugh, then do it over again
on the long stretch of I-35
