Rethinking Life + HIV Series This Week

I celebrated my 29th birthday last week.  I feel fine about entering the last year of my twenties, so I don't think this is last week's birthday cake talking, but...

I'm having a bit of a "what am I doing with my life" crisis.

Our family just navigated through a lot of change. A lot.  And now the dust is settling... and it's time for me to evaluate the routines I'm forming in this new life of ours.  Am I stepping towards all God calls His children to?  Do I serve Him with my time, gifts, love?  How do I shake some toxic habits before they dig scar-like ruts on the face of this new life we're living in Mobile?

I have a lot to pray about.
God help me as I think through it all.

In the meantime, HIV+ orphans have been on my heart again. I've been wanting to repost the seven-part series I wrote about our family's brush with this two years ago.  So this week, you'll get the HIV series.  One part each day.

It's a win-win.  I get to repost a series I wrote with a burning heart, and spend time away from the computer seeking holy discernment.
Pray for me?
How can I pray for you?

Intro: A Series Is Born

Originally posted 8/29/2010


I have never before done a "series" within my blog.  But a certain topic has weighed so heavily on my heart for the past many months... and so a series is born.  This series is about adoption and HIV.  It is for YOU to read. Whoever you are.  Whether or not adoption is your "thing," whether or not HIV is interesting to you... I hope you'll be blessed to read this.  I pray that God will use it to drop the stigmas, to open our eyes, and to open our arms.  

So for the next several days, read on.  Here is what is to come.
