Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

If you want a GREAT book about a life of a young missionary, Bruchko is the book for you. Brucko a.k.a. Bruce Olsen goes to a stone age Indian tribe (the Motilones) in South America to tell them about Jesus. I started last night and finished early this morning before church. It was such a good read. It's the story of a young man who finds God and everybody in his church and home think he's trying to be holier than thou because he was confirmed in the church - of course he knows God (so they tell him). And his journey finding what the Lord wants him to do with his life for His glory. It will encourage you, make you cry, and praise the Lord for all His wondrous ways and miracles. It will also make you ponder what are you willing to do for the Lord. How much are you willing to give up? How much are you willing to suffer?

It reminded me a lot of Corrie Ten Boom's book "Tramp for the Lord" where God always provided in miraculous ways when things looked impossible.

Running to fix Father's Day dinner for Rusty. Happy Fathers Day Dad, Rusty, Brian & Wendell!!

He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. (His thoughts on Luke 16:9)
