We are an amazing community of believers who love Jesus, love our unbelieving spouse, our family, and one another. We are united together by the two greatest directives:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” ~Jesus Christ
We love God and we love people.
Our community is a place where we meet together to pause and breathe in hope. It’s a place where encouragement is perpetual and a place where we catch glimpses of God in the ordinary and the spectacular. It’s a home for those of us who become weary of the battles of life. It is a welcoming door we walk through for a brief respite where we sit with others who KNOW how we feel. This place is where we wrap words of encouragement around each other and feel the embrace of love, kindness and compassion.
This place is where we cast out judgment and learn forgiveness. We practice patience, acceptance, selfless service and we experience the divine. It is a place where we laugh out loud and celebrate victories. It is a place where we cry with heavy tears when life is ugly and it hurts. It is where we find courage to take the next step and wisdom to know it’s the right step. It’s a place where we stop pretending marriage is easy and a place we can share our “authentic” selves. This is a home to all of us who are living out our lives as part of something greater than ourselves.
This is our home.
Live with us, walk with us, laugh, cry, sing, run, play with us as we bring honor and glory to our Jesus. This little place on the web is a giant place in the Kingdom where the heart of Christ is alive. It is where He shares His hope, His grace, His forgiveness, His healing. It is where we are free.
This place is for all of us. And this community is always about love! ~ Lynn and Dineen
