back with a new hard drive

She's so #cool.
isn’t she the coolest??

I’m back!  I can’t believe I was gone from here for a week!  I got my computer back on Friday and I’ve worked off and on since then putting files back on. It’s a lot of work! I had visions of working on all kinds of crafting and sewing projects while I was away from this space.  That didn’t quite happen.  It seems I needed to focus my energies elsewhere for the week…

I can’t wait to share more about my involvement in Ten Thousand Homes (I promise a post is coming soon!).  This week I concentrated on communicating through social media where we were with our campaign to raise money for Phase 1 of University Village.  Can you believe that $77,000 was raised in just two months to purchase this property to train Africans?  My heart has been rejoicing!

In the midst of that joy, however, my heart was heavy and my prayers focused.  We have some friends from the days when we lived in E. Texas whose two year old daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer last month.  I just can’t imagine the new reality they are in. You can keep up with Phoebe and updates on her condition here.

Then some my friends of mine from high school youth group days (you might recognize BlissfulE from the comments section), their parents were hit by a car while walking. Their mom came away with a broken pelvis and has now been released from the hospital. Their dad is in stable but critical condition after immediate brain surgery. You can read his updates here.

I don’t mean to be so heavy after being away, but I’ve had such a range of emotions this past week. From joy to sorrow to praying and believing for miracles. I hope you will rejoice with me as well as send your thoughts and prayers to these two families. After all, isn’t that the beauty of blogging? That we can celebrate each other’s joys and lift each other up when we need it?
