Something To Celebrate

bowles-doleI am the absolute worst at celebrating.  I’m much to reserve.  I am the guy who goes to a UNC basketball game and fits right in with the “wine and cheese” crowd.  I don’t like to draw attention to myself.  I’m not vocal or demonstrative.  I don’t need a birthday party.  Which, unfortunately, translates into my inability to plan and celebrate for others when a celebration is due.  Celebration just doesn’t generally register on my radar.  It is something I need to change, and I’m working on it.

Anyway…I want to celebrate for Tim and Anna Walters who are in Russia, right now, in the final stages of the adoption process.  Lord willing, Tim and Anna will be back in less than 2 weeks with a brother and sister for Ty.  Whoo-who!  Praise God!  As many of you know, this adoption process is long, tedious, frustrating and expensive.  I am so glad they are nearing the light at the end of the tunnel for this process.  Many thanks to those of you who have prayed for them or with them, donated items or money, thrown baby showers, etc.  It is so great to be a part of a community of faith that supports each other in such a way.

Having said all that, I’d like to invite any of you to help me bless the Walters in at least one more way.  I’d love to get together a team to go over their house and cut the grass, trim the driveway, wash their cars and whatever other projects we can find to do.  If you’d like to help, let me know.  And let’s celebrate Mike style – with service!

Oh – and speaking of the “wine and cheese” crowd – how ’bout them Heels?  Go Tarheels!  Let’s win another NCAA Championship for Roy Williams!
