Hi there! If you’re here to Introduce Yourself to your Fellow Radical Read-Along Participants, click here.
My head hurts. I’m writing this post at 11:11 pm on Tuesday, and my head hurts. But it’s a good hurt. Because it’s a direct result of being completely and utterly overwhelmed by your comments on the Radical Read-Along Intro Post.
I mean, I was pretty sure God was going to amaze me over the next few weeks, but HELLO. God, you do know this was just the INTRO POST, right?? We haven’t even STARTED THE BOOK.
Are you SURE you want to move so mightily so quickly?!
I think he just said YES.
I’m going to go through some read-along house-keeping details at the end of this post, but my MAIN POINT today is a super-special trip that my dear friend Amanda is taking with some other wonderful people to GUATEMALA with Compassion International. I’m not sure of their exact itinerary, but I think they’re all landing in Guatemala sometime around RIGHT NOW.
Amanda and the rest of the gang will be blogging from Guatemala, and I’m so excited to follow their journey and pray for them. I’ll be honest. At first, I was thinking, “Oh, I’ll just follow Amanda’s blog since I don’t know the other people.” Then I popped over to a few of their blogs today, and oh my word. Love.
Yeah, maybe, if I had SUPER POWERS.
But if you feel led, I think it would be awesome to pray for these gals (and 1 guy) as they share God’s love in Guatemala and spread the word about what we can do to help these sweet kiddos in desperate need.
And ALSO? I think it would be really, really cool if you would click back to yesterday’s post and randomly (or not) choose TWO Read-Along Folks to pray for today. I think that would just be awesome.
Several of you have asked if I can fix my blog settings so that you can reply to people in the comments section. I’m working on it, I promise. Gabe tells me that my template uses an old version of WordPress that makes that impossible BUT because he DOES have super powers, he will work on getting it fixed for me ASAP. When he’s not at work or coaching two of his daughters’ soccer team or watching the 3rd one play or helping various and sundry people with computer problems and web site stuff. Or photographing Blue Angels.
I told myself I would NOT blog about Radical, Etc. on any day but Tuesday, but oh my word. I have more thoughts and ideas and hopes and fears and CRAZINESS swirling around in my head than I know what to do with. While this isn’t totally uncommon for me (understatement), this is a pretty extreme case.
I have a lot to say. And I’m pretty sure you do too. For now, share what you’d like in the comments (I promise to try to get the reply feature up and running soon!). I’ll welcome any and all thoughts, ideas, prayer requests, suggestions, whatever. And if you’re Reading Along and haven’t introduced yourself yet, please do that here (so we can keep all the intros in the same place). It’s not too late!
I just need to say ALL GLORY TO GOD. Wow.
Oh, and the guacamole? Kept me company while I was writing this post. Dee-licious.
