We’ve been trying to soak up all things Fall here in the mountains.  That means frequent drives up the Blue Ridge Parkway to watch the leaves turn and now, fall from all of the trees at 6000′ and down. It’s crazy to see the seasons literally change from day to day.  Beautiful, breathtaking and an incredible reminder of God’s presence and power and majesty.  Ahhhhhhh Fall….

We’ve had the pleasure of enjoying the company of a lot of our Charleston friends for short weekend visits.  We miss our New Day family so much and it’s always a treat to get to hang out with our friends.  Lots of great nights out on the porch enjoying the view and the conversation.  I think we’ve had company every weekend since September.  🙂

I’ve been lamenting the time change.  My internal clock is still off and it’s been over a week since the lovely change.  Who likes it being dark at 5:00 in the afternoon?!  Why can’t we just stay on one time?  Seriously?  It’s so YUCK.  There.  I said it.  YUCK YUCK YUCK YUCK YUCK

Lately. . .

I’ve been reading some really great books.  Culture of Honor by Danny Silk, The Forgotten Feminine by Denise Jordan, Wild in the Hollow by Amber C. Haines, Sonship: A Journey Into the Father’s Heart by James Jordan, and Eve: A Novel by Wm. Paul Young.  I love reading.  I love words.  I love all the feels that happen when I read good books.

Lately. . .

The church plant has been going well.  We finished up a 6 week series on Inner Healing: A Journey to Wholeness which included topics of Ungodly Beliefs, Sins of the Father, Safe People, Boundaries, Shame/Fear/Control Cycle and other topics.  It was a great series and we are now into Hearing God’s Voice. We just finished up a weekend seminar on The 4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice with the Outreach team from New Day SC.  It was a very fruitful weekend and fun to see all of our friends and family!  This week we’ll begin an 8 week series on Culture of Honor, based on the book by Danny Silk.

The book is coming along.  Slowly.  I don’t like feeling intimidated but this book feels exactly that to me – intimidating.  But I’m determined to finish it and publish it.  Now that our time is a bit freed up between now and the New Year, I want to devote more time to it.  God has been so faithful to bring me out of so much that I want to write this with excellence and with His guidance. Again, thinking about my new mantra “Words Matter.”  I want my words in this book to have purpose, meaning, life and bear good fruit.

Lately. . .

I’ve been pondering on some great teaching/preaching I’ve heard lately about not just making room for the presence of God, but actually sharing His company.  We can be in Someone’s presence and never be in company with them.  That’s powerful.  I want relationship.  With the Trinity.  I want to be their Abode – their home.  I’ve been focusing on what I need to get rid of in my heart to make more room for Him.  I’ve been quieter,  listening intently instead of offering up my words so freely.  I’ve been asking Him to help me love others like He loves them even when I personally feel that I don’t have an ounce of anything to give any more.  I’m looking and listening and pondering with more purpose than I think I ever have.  There’s something shifting in the spirit realm and I feel this urge to be ready for it.

 

Grace and Peace,
