Real contentment has nothing to do with either prosperity or poverty. Contentment is an inside job, the result of knowing God and living life against the backdrop of eternity.

all my homies

The Lord gave me 7 special gifts a few months ago.

E Peezy, K deezy, Harry J, Z Stanke, Ali, Amba J y Dr. John.

They are THE BOMB.

God knew what he was doing when he handpicked each one of us to be here in Roatan for the year.

From Donald Miller's bloggy blog:

"Dr. Dean Ornish is a heart surgeon and has done extensive research involving heart health. His findings were surprising. What is most important to heart health, according to Ornish, is community. That’s right…other people. Patients who suffered from a heart attack were more likely to recover if they had a dog, and also if they were in a good marriage, and then also if they were part of a close-knit community. They could also take medicine, but the medicine helped about as much as the community, Ornish found. In other words, we were designed to work best when we were in loving relationships.

It’s no wonder that so much of Scripture is addressed to groups. We were designed to live in community."

We grow together. We cry together. We spray bug spray on each other. We cook together. We laugh ALL THE TIME together. I don't get sick of these people. I use their stuff like it is mine. We fold each others laundry. We sing and dance together. We wax together. (jajajaja) We encourage each other. We pray together. We ride deep in tailgates together.

I am obsessed with my community. Are you?
