  1. Angie,

    It is surprising how God can work. We don’t always get what we want, but in the end we wind up loving what we got. We may want a/c, & nice study places. God knew that open door would lead to great friendships. That can be more important than comfort. My pastor & his wife purchased a home a few years ago. They decided to have the “open door” policy. Each holiday they invite people over to eat with them. We all bring food, sit around & talk. It is about having someplace to be without being alone on that day. Our little church is like that also. The big churches have platforms & large crowds. We are small in number but huge in love. We want to shower our community with Gods love. Think of the Cheers theme song: “Sometimes you want to go Where everybody knows your name,
    and they’re always glad you came. You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same You wanna be where everybody knows Your name. You wanna go where people know, people are all the same, You wanna go where everybody knows your name.” That song describes Blue Springs Church to a tee. You come once your a visitor. Step into our doors twice & your family. We will love on & care for you. You are one of us.. We’ve all got troubles & tons of God’s grace to get us through. We are glad you came please come again!! Ours is an open door policy to love on everyone no matter what! We are Jesus for that community!

    Blessings 🙂

  2. I love that your daughter has created community! It’s so so very important! I pray that God will keep opening doors for me on this masters trip and that in the quiet, in my temperament, in my body language, in my words I exhibit parts of Jesus behaviour. The love, the patience, the clam, the acceptance, the kindness. I pray God will help me to do this for others and for myself, towards myself. I’m opening the door and walking to Jesus and God, I’m crawling into his lap tonight and asking for healing of my body and calmness of my mind. So I can be all that is good for others!
    Great post!
