Quote

"The Christian religion is, in the long run, a thing of unspeakable comfort. But it does not begin in comfort. It begins in the dismay I have been describing, and it is no use at all trying to go on to that comfort without first going through that dismay."
C.S. Lewis

That's a good quote! Even God Himself incarnate went through "dismay" on the cross for "the joy set before Him" (Hebrews 12:2)

Chelsea, what's the source of that quote?

I just told AJ about your site here. He was excited to hear about you and your family. He has created his own site:

He is anxious to hear from you.

Tell you mom I said hello and thank you all for your prayers for AJ and the team this summer in Africa. They are home and safe! But all have really grown in the Lord.

Hello Owen family! How is everyone doing? I am back at school with all the craziness. It was really good to be able to visit with you guys. I wish it could happen more often. Well I just wanted to say hi, and see how things were.
