Gratitude

Yesterday as we wrapped up two full days of taping at Hope Street prepping for our Family Reunion, I walked in just as the 5 o'clock buzz of our hallway was coming to life. It was the students coming home from school, dinner being prepared, and our Tuesday night study with Perry kicking off. As I made my way to my office I was greeted with a 'sup FAM' from Mark, Van ready to talk all things Pokemon, and Sara moving into her new apartment with her sweet baby boy. And as all the hustle slowly settled, Jayseon walked in to my office and we jammed out to Moana and talked all things dinosaurs.

Not a Baseball Fan

I have been told that it is sort of “unamerican” - to not like baseball. It’s not that I don’t think baseball players are incredible athletes - they just don’t do what they do fast enough to keep my attention.

“So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”” ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭31:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬ I woke up early. To keep myself from doing the social media scroll through I decided maybe I should open my bible app. This was after I shut my eyes as tight I could and told myself you really should try to go back to sleep. Fail. I opened the app and the verse above is the “verse of the day”. I immediately thought of several members of our community who have inspired me recently as they boldly have stepped out on faith. People like Rhonda and her new job, Nicki who is an encourager, our no
