Here's this...

I'm racking my brain, trying to figure out what to write. I could be like some of you who go for days without saying anything until you have something to say. Not me. I like to pontificate almost everyday on sometimes nothing.

So what will it be today (tonight)? Actually I posted something earlier - with that same above paragraph - and the 2nd paragraph being my thoughts on Barack Obama- but I decided to delete it. If you read it you know my thoughts on him. If not, well here are some other thoughts you can know - and they're much more important thoughts:
Nate Phillips' work with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) in South Africa was amazing. I had a late lunch with him today in the tea room. He told me about his training in Orlando before he went to South Africa, and then about his 49 hour trip there, and then about his time there. It was inspiring and yet heart-breaking; exciting and yet sobering.
God is doing an amazing work through Nate.... and I'm just glad he answered His call and went. Oh my.
If you get a chance, sit down with him and let him talk. You'll get goose bumps . . . and if you're like me, you'll want to sign up to go, too!

I talked to him a long time tonight, and you're so right. It made me really miss all my trips I used to go on. I should get back into that...
