Somehow I managed to smash my good eye into a hard seat back on the first airline leg of our journey. Swelling quickly made my bad eye into my best eye. The swelling subsided, but left me with a world-class shiner. It made a nice conversation piece and subject for speculative jibes, especially since we are part of FamilyLife.
We attended a conference in a country our State Department recommends against visiting. There we met Christians from difficult countries few of us are likely to ever visit. These are men and women who put their lives on the line for Jesus Christ every day. Knowing them is a privilege.
And yet, we also have something to offer them. The biblical approach to marriage we teach is totally new to many. We led an encouragement and vows renewal program for two hundred couples. Sadly, some could not say one good thing about their spouses. Biblical marriage is a key part of God’s plan and an essential part of a thorough discipleship process.
Nice shiner!! Sure it was an ice breaker!!
Yes, indeed. And it took so long to go away. I still have a bit of it now.
Ouch! Thanks for your service to so many!
Thankfully it will be all cleared up when we see you ! 🙂
Bless your heart, or should I say your eye? You and Kit are such an inspiration to those of us who are blessed to know and love you. I can’t tell you how many times your names come up in our Bible Study. Not only did you teach us well. It actually stuck with us. Thank you for being such a huge part of our lives.
Thanks, Patsie. We were so sorry to hear about David and have been praying. How is your leg ? Hopefully, still no surgery needed. Praying for you all, Kit and Drew
