How Many Licks Does it Take to Get to the Center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?


Today I sit and ponder this question, not because I have recently had a tootsie roll pop, but because it seems more relevant some how. The answer to this question depends on several variables, the size of the tongue, the length of the lick, how hard one licks, and so on. It is interesting to me that this actually has application to my life. To get to the center of who I am suppose to be is not all that different in process. It depends on the size of the call, how long it might take, how hard I am willing to work at it, and is it truly worth it.

I got to lead worship today for the Journey, a church here in Michigan. It was great to see God's people engaged in worship. I am interviewing at this church, and am very much enjoying being a part of it. And as I seek out the call on my life, and pray about our next steps, it is interesting to me that no matter how much you see there is still more. This is where we differ from a tootsie roll pop. A tootsie roll pop has an end, and man is it a good one. But we may get to the place we have always felt called to and realize that this is just the next step on the process of our call. Although we could be at the Journey if things work out for a very long time, I know that this is not all that God has for me and Angele.

Please pray for us as we seek out God's call on our lives, and figure out how and when we will both go back to school.

And, if you haven't already, have a tootsie roll pop today.

Where We Are

Alright, so I thought that I would be better at this blogging thing then what I really am. It is easy to forget about when we are constantly on the go. Angele and I spend a lot of time on the road traveling back and forth between Marshall, Grand Rapids and Detroit (for those of you who are in New Zealand, and this does not mean that much, they are all at least 2 hours apart). Angele has been working for Eddie Bauer, and things are going really well for her there. I am still interviewing at a church in Detroit, and feel pretty good about it. So that's what is happening in our lives.

We got to go to the airport to see Katie off to New Zealand. That was a good time for us to help her parents feel better about it and just hang out with some friends. Katie should have a great time, so treat her right you Kiwi's!

I am trying to think of something funny to say to close this out, but nothing comes to mind. So I won't say anything.
