A girl, a house, a ministry, a child, and a Twinkie*

When I met Nikki I knew what I wanted.  One of the quickest decisions I’ve ever made.

The slowest decision I’ve ever made?  Every other stinking one.

Nikki balances my self-criticism by saying that once I do make a choice I am unshakeable. Maybe.

All I know is when you are called to take a big leap of faith yet struggle with making day-to-day decisions, the conflict in the mind is unkind.  The two extremes sort of go together like beef-cola.

We have the seniors studying Ecclesiastes for the next couple of weeks.  As their safe little high school bubble of security is about to burst their world is about to get a lot bigger.

They need to come to the conclusion, much like the Preacher, that very attractive things exist in this world which they will discover are very meaningless.  It’s a scary thing to realize, and once they do they will have a life-changing decision to make.  They just need to make the decision and locomote (triple word score).  God will do wonders with people who move.

We once again listen in on the speech from William Wallace, “Sure it seems impossible, but what happens if we don’t at least try?  Nothing.”

(*any day which includes an excuse to type the word “Twinkie” is a good day.)

    I am sure I should say something about the deep stuff you’ve put on here. However, all I really wanted to say is – did you know they make Chocolate and Strawberry Twinkies now?

    Not kidding. the chocolate Twinkies are pretty good.
