It’s the Monday after Spring Break – I think affirmations for a good day is called for!
Lent Day 11 – We talked a lot of heavy things last week, maybe they weren’t heavy for you but took a lot of brain power and finger typing to articulate my thoughts on an ideal church and finding your people, amongst other things. So today, let’s keep it light and positive.

Day 11 of Lent
This weekend we celebrated Izaiah’s 9th birthday – but first we had to deal with a leaky pipe. Oh the relationship we have with good ol’ pipes. Fortunately, while we do have a hole in a wall – we don’t have massive damage. We just had a pipe start leaking in our shower. Two years ago, this would have been a total massive deal – but when you have a toilet – pipe situation that ruins your mom, this ain’t no thang!
Last week ended on a sour note. I should have mentioned this on Saturday. The mass killing in New Zealand is tragic. My prayers are with Muslims across the world. I just don’t understand hatred.
