…when our grandchildren ask …

“When our grandchildren ask us where we were when the voiceless and the vulnerable of our era needed leaders of compassion and purpose, I hope we can say that we showed up, and that we showed up on time.”

–Gary Haugen, President and CEO of International Justice Mission

Paul and I are preparing for that day when Heather herself asks such question, when “bun” asks such question, when the children of Heather and “bun” ask such question, we could answer them,

‘Yes, we did show up, not just a matter of showing up, but because our God commands us to show up, and to show up on time too.  To speak up.  To stand up.  For the oppressed, the widows, the fatherless, the orphans, the hurts and the broken.” 

It’s not our call to show up, or to show up on time, but it’s His call, we are simply following His call and obeying every step of the way.  We show up, because You did, Father God.  We are simply following You, and You ALONE!!! 

In Your Glorious Name, I pray.  Amen!
