War Eagle is disappointing to proclaim.

Auburn as a whole has been disappointing to me as a graduate. Not because the football team was horrible this year, but b/c the people who run the place (not the president or the administration, but the boosters or folks with money) have proven to be of no integrity. This article is very clear about the lack of integrity.

Why Christmas?

Life seems more sensitive or tender during the last few weeks of December than any other time of the year. Perhaps it is the materialistic culture that we live in. Maybe is it our desire to be recognized or to please people. Could it be our unmet expectations? Or expectations that are ungodly? As I asses my heart I see evidence of all of these. Realizing this makes me scared to look to deep into my heart for fear of how corrupt it really is.

Thank you to my pastor for preaching the Word yesterday and engaging my heart with the good news of Christ!

Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:
He was manifested in the flesh,
vindicated by the Spirit,
seen by angels,
proclaimed among the nations,
believed on in the world,
taken up in glory.
1 Timothy 3:16

Lottie Moon

If you are a member of a Southern Baptist Church you will be (hopefully) giving to the Lottie Moon offering this month. Steven and I are thankful to you for giving because in a very short time we will be 100% dependent on the monies from the Lottie Moon Offering. If you want to know more check out this web site.
We are in Richmond right now at the IMB headquarters. Much of our time today is being spent in the library here at the headquarters. We are getting ready to watch a video about Northeast Brazil. Tomorrow we have physicals and interviews. We have been told several times that this candidate conference is the biggest one ever. There are 69 potential missionaries here this week!
All that to say please give to Lottie Moon because without you these missionaries cannot go.

We made it One Year!

I have a lot of pictures to share of the last week! It's been a fun week! Steven and I celebrated one year of marital bliss on Monday.
The top of our wedding cake has been in the freezer all this time. I took it out to thaw on Sunday. It wasn't horrible tasting, but it wasn't good enough to eat. Note to self: don't freeze carrot cake for a year and expect it to be yummy.
