Family Traveling and Shocking Message

I can't believe it is already Monday! How depressing how time flies by me. Last Wednesday we found out that a close relative of my husband's passed away unexpectidly and so were detoured in our original plans. We packed up to attend her funeral and to remember her beautiful servants heart. I sat and listened to her mother in law our great grandma reflect on her kindness and generousity with her time and love, it was encouraging to me. Hearts were broken at her absence but joyful at her presence somewhere else. We are now in Lake Charles Louisiana visiting with family. We had a wonderful time at Starbucks with a cousin and her husband just discussing God, religon, adoption, and family. I don't know if I told you but God, on the day their baby was taken away, blessed them with the news that they were pregnant! She was not suppose to be able to get pregnant, I am always so amazed at His way of revealing His glory. He has always in our lives waited till the last possible minute when it is either assumed immpossible or unheard and then miraculously He shows himself. All praise and glory is His!

The other night Expresso and I watched an amazing sermon that I must share. We had never heard of this guy or his ministry but a friend told Expresso to watch a video of him speaking at a youth conference, that it was shocking. So of course say no more we were on the computer at 11:00 that night and what we heard was more than what we were expecting and probably one of the most heartfelt and bold speaches we have ever listened to. Here take a look for yourself:

I'm enjoying your blog. That was a heartfelt and bold message. Don't know what background you're from but I often here some bold stuff from the folks over at Sovereign Grace Ministries (Josh Harris, C.J. Mahaney, etc.) and Desiring God (John Piper). I have linked to a couple of sermons on my blog that have radically changed my thinking. I would say that they are also very bold with regard to speaking the truth.
