    I lost grip on keeping up the blog daily yesterday. I was so tired last night I thought I would be able to recall day 5 today, and day 6 has had a slew of memories all of its own. I have a horrible memory, and have lost some of day 5. I’ll remember...

    Today was Sunday, and so our team sent three parties to three different churches for services this morning. One group went to the church in the city we went to yesterday, Arecibo. Another group, which included my brother, went to a church in Ponce on the south coast. The group I was in went...

    It’s been a good day. We slept really solidly last night and got up late for breakfast, which is our M.O.  After breakfast in the lodge- scrambled eggs, cream of wheat, and bagels- and a devotional, the different teams split off to their assignments. As part of the construction team, we drove to the...

    Today started this morning at 3 am after a 4 hour night of sleep. A member of Jeremy’s church, Jim Weaver, came and gave us a courtesy lift to the Denver airport. We met up with the team- 21 in all- at the airTran ticketing area and then checked in between 4:15 and 4:45,...

    Today was a drive day, Albuquerque to Denver. We left around 9:30 and got here around 5. We made one stop in Raton. The weird thing is this morning, picking up a backpack, I felt a tinge of pain behind my left shoulder blade. When we got to Raton, when I got out of...

    Tomorrow my brother and I get to drop everything in our lives, jump in a truck and drive to Denver, and then on early Thursday morning, we’ll hop a plane to Atlanta and then fly on to Bayámon, Puerto Rico.  This trip has been a few months in the making, but in reality, it...

    It’s a bit after 10 this evening, and looking back on the weekend, it was a good weekend for catching up. I was happy this weekend to catch up on my dishes, my laundry, and general housekeeping.  I was able to hang with some friends from the dance club on Friday night for dinner,...

    Jonah, the Gospel, and Storms in Life

    by  •  • GraceThoughts • 0 Comments

    In my continued variation in reading, I have been reading “Surprised by Grace” by  Tullian Tchividjian, in which he takes a look at the story of Jonah as a vehicle for the gospel.  I really like Tchividjian’s writings because as a teacher, his thought and theology is firmly planted in the primacy of Jesus’...

    It’s been a week or so now since I have been able to post anything.  I’d like to say I have a reason for this, but I don’t.  Between an ongoing sorrow that I can’t seem to shake and physical ailments that leave me wondering what is going on in my body, I’ve just...
