Even the shoes

It seems like we’ve had lots of things break over the last few months. Fridge, range, oven, ceiling fan. (Ok, the fan was me but I was pulling out a cabinet for our new oven…)

Yesterday I found I needed a new tie-rod in order for my car to pass inspection. Emily’s computer is blinking–literally. And today I found a rip in another pair of pants and my best dress shoes were scraped on concrete step as I was going to lift up one of my kids.


I guess I’m done this digital dump. If you’re of the type that prays, please pray for us. None of this stuff is cheap. I know people are going through stuff like this all the time. But I also know we’re soldiers in a war.

Ok, because I’m an inveterate optimist, great things are happening too.

  • We’ve had almost 100 first-time visitors come to VCW. VERY COOL!
  • The Inland Foundation has just completed a $1 million campaign.
  • My book on fundraising is much closer to being ready to send to reviewers.
  • My kids are beautiful and stinking smart. I’m loving their growing.
  • And Emily and I celebrated 11 years of marital bliss last month.

There. See? The glass is full. *grin*

But please feel free to pray!
