From 60 Feet to 42,731,040 Feet in 44 Days



I googled today. Did you know that the distance between Jackson, Mississippi to Kampala, Uganda is 8,093 miles? Know how many feet are in a mile? 5,280. Do the math.
It’s funny how when we submit to the will of God, we will be called to do things and to go places we never imagined we’d go. On purpose. And be excited about it.
It’s funny how when you seek something with your whole heart and commit to obedience, that He will give you an unexplainable affection for a people you have never met.
It’s funny how a Holy book of words can speak louder than a television at a sound level of 100.
It’s funny that watching “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” makes me want more of what I’ve got and less of what they have.
It’s funny how the more times I type “funny”, it starts to look like a word that my child made-up.
