As we walk through our neighborhood we see that our streets are lined with very tall Palm trees. Whenever I see them, I find myself praying, "Lord, raise up new Jesus followers to stand tall like these trees." For me, every palm is a prayer. But Praying is easy….waiting is hard.

Six months ago, we felt the Lord impress a question into our hearts. The question goes something like this: "Can we turn an abandoned property in the Jackson Neighborhood into an urban farm which can produce enough fruits and vegetables for 920 homes in the Jackson Neighborhood?" ...

Sunday's are a bit of conundrum for our family. We haven't moved fully into the neighbourhood yet….we are close….but still unpacking boxes, doing work on the inside, and still very much in transition -- getting health insurance, car insurance, new drivers licences, etc.

As Heidi and I walked together, praying as we typically do, she paused, saying "Everything is strangely familiar but it doesn't feel like home." She's right. Home isn't simply geography…it's what you do with where you live and it's who you are with, that makes home…home.

It wasn't really the "welcome to America" we were expecting. After a snafu at the border, now delayed 3 hours into our first day of travel down to California, we were incredibly hungry. We entered the drive thru at McDonalds (don't judge….we ordered salads) and waited for our turn to pull up to ...

What if instead of a resolution….you chose a word. This word would serve as a guide for your life or family. We are pregnant with vision and it would be easy to make a set of goals and aim to achieve our vision. This isn't what we want. Our word this year is: listen.

The picture is terrible….but the metaphor wasn't. As I took a moment and watched the sheep graze on the edge of our city, Fresno…. I noticed how little they looked up. Their contentment surprised me. A picture in my mind began to emerge. I saw myself, a sheep, eating and unworried.

The front door of our house will be opened for us to move in our possessions this coming Tuesday. Right now the house feels like a corpse….but soon we will give it a heart. We are ready. Ready to have rhythms again. For us, daily rhythms are like blood in a body -- they bring life.

Can you believe it? During 3 days of travel, our kids did not even cry ONE TIME during this long road trip! We were so impressed (it was a God thing, we think). There were many moments where Heidi and I just sat quietly in the front seat -- after all…the car was strangely quiet.

I mentioned yesterday that to wear joy you have to try on gratitude. Moving is the ultimate test of your marriage and your priorities (do I hear an AMEN!?). It quickly shows you how much you own and forces you to ask the question, "why do we think this possession is worth keeping in our life?" ...
