Kara's Collection: What is your legacy?  ~ Guest Post by Jason Tippetts

from an article originally posted January 14, 2015...

Kara and I drove to the doctor the other day, really the only outing that is possible these past weeks. As we left our house, some of Kara’s girlfriends were talking by the fireplace. They were talking about Kara and the impact she has on them. Kara caught one saying "Kara always asks about my marriage." As we left the house, I could see Kara sinking into sadness. She mentioned the conversation we just overheard which caused her to remember who she used to be. She felt sad that she didn't have the energy to engage those conversations. I think she felt separate from her past investment in people; that her new normal had been ripped out of her old comforts and joy. That there was no congruency between the two.

Norman was delivered to my home yesterday. There were a few mix ups and it took us a bit to get him here, but now he is settled into his new home. As y'all can imagine, for my littlest ones a chair with wheels is an exciting addition, until they hear they don't get to take joy rides through the house- then they became indifferent to Norman.

Kara's Collection: How Are the Kids?

from an article originally posted January 7, 2015...

It is often the first or the second question: how are the kids?  Here is what I know of my children. My kids are loved. They are loved by me, their daddy, and a steady stream of lovers that meet and know them with a genuineness and love that is stunning. I’m daily looking at the love that is meeting my children, and I’m looking for the love that is meeting my children. It is often that specific, knowing, intentional, directed love to each of my children that shows me what a covenantal God I serve. Meaning- a God that keeps His promises to his people. It is this breathtaking love that is growing my peace in flying away. I’m not there yet, did you hear me?- but the peace is growing in real and profound ways.
