Everything Must Change

Tomorrow is wipe #2 off The List day. Go ahead, laugh. I did. Anyway, as you might recall, or not, #2 was “Contact your local crisis pregnancy center and invite a pregnant woman to live with your family.”

~ Locate local crisis pregnancy center in Jacksonville: check

~ Gather new and slightly loved baby items: check

~ Pray our husbands remember how much they love us and how incredibly wonderful we are: check

The plan is to have breakfast and then head over to the center. Amy has lots of great items to drop off and we are hoping she can connect with some people there. The thought of taking in a pregnant girl has been brought up more than once and I am pleased to say my son seems open to the idea … with some stipulations, of course. I love how much he is like his father! We also talked about how neat it would be to get some of the other Navy wives involved in this project. I can hardly wait to see where this will take Amy and maybe some others. I’ll post what happens tomorrow night.

I know I have been off-track with accomplishing one item a week from the list. Sorry and well, get over it. With all the traveling I have done this last month, I am lucky to have clean clothes to wear. I am seriously hoping to get back on the weekly game plan after the holidays. Yeah, I know, you've heard that one before.

One last thing before I head for bed. A friend of mine sent me a book to read, Everything Must Change by Brian McLaren. Even though I am only a few chapters into it, I can already feel my excitement and anticipation growing. The author really challenges the way we look at Jesus and true faith in the West. If you want to be challenged in what you believe and why you believe it, check out this book. True faith should be able to stand up to anything.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I am anxious to take a look around and read your blog. Looks like it is going to be a nice visit.

Thanks, Bob!

Lily ~ So far, it has been very good. It is written by an intellectual and I am not one but still some great, thought-provoking stuff. I'd love to hear what you think when you are done reading it.

Sarah ~ Me either!

Rae ~ Thanks for following and I welcome all feedback.
