I have decided to fast from the internet. I don't know for how long, but it will be at least until our house sells, and we are established elsewhere. I am sure God will let me know when to return, at which point I will barrage many of you with comments if you are still blogging yourselves.
I love to write and I love to write on this blog. Most of all, I believe God wants me to write, and will provide the opportunity to continue. I assure you my harddrive with be bursting with stories to tell upon my return...if I return.
I hope I will return to tell you of a community - a community under construction. I hope I will return to tell you some amazing stories of all that God has presented us on our journey to do something great for Him. I hope I will return to share pictures of the house we will be building with straw bales and our own hands. I hope I will return to encourage you and show you what is possible if you have faith.
I will be online for just a few more days to receive emails, and then our internet service and home telephone will be disconnected. I have met many amazing people during the short time I have been here. Please know that you have brightened my life. I pray that I have brightened yours at moments.
I would love to keep in touch with many of my blogger friends. Who knows, maybe I will revive the quaint old method of letter writing?! You can briefly email me at huns4x(at)alltel(dot)net. Know that during my absence I will be showering you with prayers and blessings.
Love to all!
Success, recognition, and conformity are the bywords of the modern world where everyone seems to crave the anesthetizing security of being identified with the majority.
Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength to Love, 1963.
We get new ideas from God every hour of our day when we put our trust in Him -- but we have to follow that inspiration up with perspiration -- we have to work to prove our faith. Remember that the bee that hangs around the hive never gets any honey.
Albert E. Cliffe
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
Matthew 25:21 NIV
