"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

My friend Carol -- who used to be one of my youth leaders when I was in high school in Africa -- posted this recently on her blog. I don't think we can be reminded often enough about who Jesus REALLY was. Not your "buddy" Jesus, but Jesus, son of God, son of man.

The best news of the day: My friend Kerry who I've blogged about before (see here for a synopsis of her story) just got The Call this morning with a potential match for her lungs! When I texted with her this morning, she was on her way to the prep floor at Duke.

Things to pray for:
- That the organs are a perfect match
- For her family
- For her doctors and nurses
- For the donor's family
- For a smooth procedure and transition to recovery
