As a book end to my last post, I wanted to acknowledge the two biggest supporters of my ministry. On paper, it looks like it would’ve been a lot easier as a single guy raising support for this residency. It’s a lot less money to raise after all. But I’d rather raise twice as much as I did with her at my side than a day’s wage alone. I’d be a mess without her, and she is my most faithful helper aside from the supernatural.
Without getting into the details (more on that soon), Sarah, Em and I have had a rough week. We’ve stayed at four different places in the last four days. We were so blessed by the loving folks out there who opened up their homes to us, but making a toddler sleep in a new locale every 24 hours isn’t fun. Things were really piling up on me this morning. and I just had more stuff on the calendar, more reading to do, more meetings I’m late for…
Things were really piling up on me this morning. I had more stuff on the calendar, more reading to do, more meetings I’m late for… At 12:30 PM, with all our nerves at a fever pitch, myself away at a meeting, with coffee and water at the bottom of my empty stomach, I stepped out for a moment, looked up and saw these two moonbeams strutting towards me. Carrying the national treasure of the hill country, WHATABURGER. My ladies drove all the way across town in lunch hour traffic to get me some belated breakfast, and then go right back home.
Sarah and Em, I love you both so much. You’re a gift I didn’t earn.
