Years ago, when my grandmother was cleaning out her attic, I was given several old books and photographs. I love old books–the scent and feel of them.  Looking through a book of poetry I found a treasure: a letter dated 1898 from my great great great-grandmother to her daughter, Carrie, who had moved from upstate New York to Kansas to marry a man who owned a successful General Store.  The letter–difficult to cypher with its spidery script–is full of news and funny stories, advice (it is from a mother to her daughter after all!), confessions, and loving urgings for Carrie and her family to seek the Lord daily.

My hope is that this blog will be just that for you–full of news and stories and poetry and photographs and above all, honest and fervent urgings to “seek the Lord while he may be found.” I don’t know where you are in life, but I know the One who authored you.  The life He gave you and me is rich and full and worth living abundantly.
