Thoughts ideas and questions to share with any one who has way to much time on their hands to read this blog.

Cry Mercy

After the events that occurred last Tuesday at Elim Christian College, I have been trying hard to process. My father in law is the DP at ECC and although I didn't personally know any of the victims, being separated by 1 degree has given me an inside view of things - much closer than I would have gotten from just the media.

As the victims get laid to rest and I struggle with the why, I have been drawn to a song by David Crowder. It helps me - I don't know how - it just does. Here are the lyrics, but the dynamics of the song excel passed the sum of the lyrics so I encourage you try and listen to it.


Cry Mercy

I will wait
I will wait for Your peace
I will wait
I will wait and You comfort me

I lift my head
I lift my heart, my soul
I lift my hands
I give myself, my life my all

And I cry mercy Lord
A cry of freedom to be heard
And I cry mercy Lord
A cry of freedom from this world

4.00am phone call

Apart from being cold this morning, I got a phone call @ 4.00am. Not as bad as you might think as my alarm goes off at 4.30am - but anyways back to the call - it was our neighbor and good friend - Josh.

Hey Reuben it's Josh, Becca's contractions are 5 mins apart. I'm gonna jump in the shower and bring Cail over

Exciting I replied. So I set up the porta cot for Cail - but had to think why Josh did you need to wait till they were 5 mins apart???

They then found out the the Maternity hospital at Kura was full - so off to hotel birthcare - so traffic was a breeze.

They made it at 5.00am and Averie Mae was born at 6.09am This morning! Praise the Lord!
