I have a few randoms to share with you so…first off…
Yes it’s that time of year again…Russ and I are running the 5K in Champaign on Friday April 21st with the WBGL Hope for Justice Team.
They are raising funds for the fight against human trafficking here and around the world.
How can you get involved?
…short of the insanity of donning tennis shoes and pounding pavement that some people actually …
I’m so glad you asked because…
You can support the cause from the comfort of your desk chair and donate online to our team —
Or seriously any WBGL Team – they are woefully short on meeting their goal.
You can also make it your business to find out what IJM (International Justice Mission) is actively doing around the world to help identify traffickers and provide legal counsel and prosecution. Here: //www.ijm.org/
I said this was a this and that day…so here’s the that.
I was given a copy of Beth Moore’s The Undoing of Saint Silvanus as a gift from a dear friend.
You may know I typically do not read fiction because….this mind has enough issues attempting to stay on the tracks of productivity without engaging it in an alternate world of characters and their plot line to analyze and over analyze.
I learned years ago that fiction is one of those “perfectly-fine-for-others-but-not-me” things. But I have also learned that I struggle with legalism as well so decided to trust God and enjoy seeing what our Beth had come up with.
It was a delightfully uplifting and wonderfully entertaining read.
True to Beth’s whole purpose in all things, the entire book pointed to Jesus. His love and His mercy and His grace, but all woven in a story rich in character development and a regional visit to the sights, sounds and tastes of New Awlins, Lou-weeee-zeeee-annah that will leave you refreshed and inspired.
And if you can get through her descriptions of Olivia’s french press coffee and the thought of beignet’s without salivating…you are a stronger person than me!
So there you have it….this and that…
have a blessed Tuesday and I will see ya’all tomorrow <3
