Answers to Prayer

Some may say that life is life and that "answers to prayer" are just coincidences and not the hand of God's providence in our lives. I know that God answers prayers. Sure, they may be co-incidences (two things happening at once seemingly related), but they are not just coincidences.

* Steve had an interview with Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Novato on Sunday Mar. 22, 2009. We both went, had a great time with the church family there, and spent the day in services and going to lunch. We found out earlier this month that they are going to keep their search going for other candidates but assured us that God has something planned for us. (And we know that to be true.)

* The 20/30 Couples group at PCC in Redwood City is done with the Love Dare challenge and we really enjoyed hosting the group at our apartment. The group will be meeting in the Fireside room on Tuesdays for the next several weeks to discuss the next step in the small group ministry for young couples at PCC. Please join us!

* La Tartine was fun and I enjoyed singing some songs that weren't my own. That night, and other moments during days, inspire me to write new phrases and rhymes that may or may not become songs or be heard. But I know that God hears them, even for the brief moment that I think them, even when I forget to write it down, even when that tune is lost and I beg for it back. It's His, I guess, not mine, and I gladly sing to Him every day, a new song. Maybe He'll sing my thoughts and words back to me when I get to Heaven and I can say, "Oh ya... that's how it went..."
