I am reading "The Reason for God" by Tim Keller. I am loving it. Oh yeah, I'm still in the introduction and it has made me tear up. Tim Keller is a pastor at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan. He's an amazing communicator who was told that starting a church in Manhattan would be "a fool's errand". Now his church has about 5000 attendees (skeptics- it is New York, after all, and believers in Christ alike) and his church has started sister churches. The book (it seems) is written for both skeptics and believers as well. If you've never heard of him, or have heard of him and don't know anything about him, I'm gonna highly recommend his book. I'll let you know how it finishes.
On a completely different note, the walls are closing in on me about moving. For those who have asked, Nope, we don't know (still) about the house. We have sent in a deposit for married housing (which would be fine), but it is a bit unnerving to not know where we're going to live. My heart starts to beat fast and my eyes get wide-eyed when I think that about moving to a new city, where we don't know where we'll go to church, my kids don't know any kids, my husband doesn't have a job (and neither do I), and he'll jump into going to school. Full-time. My life is about to be REALLY different. I'm not comfortable with that. I'm scared. What is next for us? Man, I'm such a drama queen. I know that the Lord will take care of us- He has always provided for our needs. I have a feeling that the next three years, although different than we've ever done before, will be an entirely new adventure. Maybe I'll grow up a bit.
An itty, bitty, chubby man just climbed into my lap (no, not Quinn) and I've got to smooch his cheek.
