My attorney passed along more details about the court hearing tomorrow:
The hearing will be held at the Washington County Courthouse, Hillsboro, Oregon in Courtroom 303C 9:00 AM.
The hearing is open to the public. You are welcome to attend. If you plan on coming, will you either send me a note privately or leave a comment? It would be fun to know ahead of time what to expect. Thanks!
If you are coming and only know us through the blog, we would love to get a chance to meet you. Please try to find us. You will easily recognize me by my red hair and I'm over 6 feet tall, and people say that my daughter, Hannah, is just a younger, shorter version of me (it's true!). All of the defendants in this lawsuit have greatly appreciated your support and prayers.
Last night, I met Justice and Justice's family for the first time. It was a sweet time - sharing more stories and yet talking about what God is doing through this experience. I was given a gift and will share part of it with you over time. I was so touched.
I'm going to church now. Have a time of prayer, reflection, and thankfulness - - for all that He has done, for all He brought me through, taught me.
I feel incredibly rich and blessed today. I am not at all worried about tomorrow or the next day. As long as I know that I am right with my God and hearing His voice, all is well with my soul.
Ohhhhhh . . . . that reminds me of the perfect song. Yea! This is also my all-time favorite hymn. I almost feel guilty using it in the event it might give the implication that my "load" even compares to what Horatio Spafford went through - the person who wrote the lyrics. My load does not!
As a musician, I can easily get distracted by pitch issues or any number of things. I want to encourage you to try to remove any distractions you may see and try to appreciate the heart of worship here - the heart-felt lyrics, and the beautiful voices used as God's instruments of worship.
This video is a bit long. Bill Gaither gives the history behind the song - it's an amazing story of sadness and grief and that struggle to overcome and the assurance of God. If you are unfamiliar with the story, do listen to it in its entirety. The singing starts around 2:00 and Guy Penrod begins around 3:00.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
