Nashville. What lays ahead...

Sorry I haven't been around.

I've been spending the last week getting the house ready to pack.  Finding my bins, getting the paper, and gutting out stuff we won't be taking with us.

This new opportunity is exciting, scary, challenging, and an incredible opportunity.  I've bounced around between all those emotions, as well as a couple of homesick moments, but all in all, I kinda can't wait to dig in.

Unless you've been visiting Mars for the last few weeks you'll know about the flood that's destroyed the lives of so many.   Here are some pictures of OUR center and operations during and after the flood.  These are not pictures I've taken, but they are the only one's we have.

During the Flood

This is our residential program.  Our clients had to be removed by boat.

Our Chapel. 

See the top of the van?

After the flood.

As you can see we've got a lot of work ahead of us. 


  1. Oh, no! That is horrible. My heart aches to see this and think about all of you who have been affected. And, yes, apparently I was visiting MARS because I had no idea. With my illness, I just don't get in a lot of TV or news. However, I will most definitely be praying for everyone involved.

    I was stopping by from SITS to share a bit of comment lo♥e. I truly pray that things improve for everyone there very quickly.
