In the Year 2010...

This afternoon I was thinking about the remarkable differences between the start of 2009 and the start of 2010.

In January 2009, I was living in Kitale. I was pretty certain that I would program PDYM Conferences about eight months of the year and live in Kitale for the other four. I was actively attending, involved in and working for Saddleback Church...and was not even thinking of making a change. More than that, I was very choosy about when I was kind. I had a tendency to be bossy, belittling and judgemental.

In January 2010, I live in Corona del Mar. I attend, work for and really love Mariners Church. {This does not mean that I don't love Saddleback, but I am so happy with the community that God has brought me in to.} I am striving to hear God's voice in each moment and situation. I am also working to be gentle and tender and kind.

There are quite a few other, indescribable, intangible differences.

I have absolutely no idea how 2011 will begin...but I am living this next year in search of God's guidance and movement, excited for what is to come.
