There are two word that come to mind when I think of Elizabeth. A young woman with a smile on her face and laughter in her heart.

She has the whole world ahead of her as she is about to graduate. A grand adventure that she has been preparing her whole life for. An adventure that has her parents grinning with pride and cheering her every step of the way.

Last Wednesday we meet for her Senior Session at one of the most beautiful spots in the area, Codman Estates. A beautiful location taken straight from the pages of Greek and Roman Histories. I can not think of a better location around for Elizabeth who looked like she stepped out of a Greek myth from two thousand years ago.

As she is about to embark into the next stage of life I pray that God would lead her steps and that she would keep her mishevious spirit.

Being that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month my friends got together and decided to have a benefit.

2014-10-10_0019.jpgIt was at one of the best salons around Drumais Salon in Marlborough. If you have not visited it you have to go. It is in a beautiful old building that used to be a shoe factory many years ago.

There were many in attendance from the community. Particuarly from the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Comerce. There were massages, a raffal, amazing food, and a chance to support local vendors.

I would also be amiss if I did not mention my friends Ellen Goodman, and Maureen Letendre. Ellen is an investment guru for Prudential who helps people make the best of the financial road ahead. Maureen is life coach for In Demand Coaching who helps you navigate the mine fields that life sends your way.

As I sit here at church most of the weekend there has only been one thing on my mind.  My friend Dane.

Dane was an obtrusive, in your face follow of Christ.  He pulled no punches.  You always new where he stood with most everything.  He was a friend who would ask the hard questions.  He would do all he could to protect the youth of our church.  He did not care what others though as long as Christ was glorified.

He has been the Youth Pastor at Grace for over ten years.  Overt the past year he has battled brain cancer.  He had two operations and tried various medicines.  He pressed on physically and spiritually.  Up until the end he knew who’s hands he was in.

He passed on last Tuesday.  Over the past 48 hours I have heard story after story of how he influenced lives.  He was not perfect like all of us.  But he gave all for Jesus.

His family is a living testament to God’s power to work in the hardest of situations.  I have been impressed with there strength in these hard times.  I ask that you would pray for Them; Loyda, Maddie, Eli, Hunter, and Mollie.

To see a small sampling of his life check out the following video.

A couple weeks back I took a stroll around Harvard, the town not the college.  It is a quite unassuming town not much going on in big city terms.  There is so much life though in the little towns.

I was heading to the library when I noticed the local farmer’s market was open.  I decided to stop by.  Farmer’s markets are full of so many of the things I love!  Families out together, colors that make you smile, and everyone in good spirits.

As I looked around I also noticed teens out getting ready for the fall sports season.  Guys running and girls being coached in lacrosse.  The playground was full of activity as the kids ran here and there with parents keeping a dutiful eye on them.

I will say I do like the city but there is something about country living.

We are all broken.SONY DSC

We have scars that don’t show.  We fall into pieces when ghosts from the past, present and future visit.  They scream “Your Stupid!”, ” You don’t Matter!”, “Why even Try!”

We feel worthless.

But….God picks up the pieces.  He creates something better that what we ever were.  Something better than what we ever could be.  He composes a new song that resonates within us.  A song with verses that say to no longer be afraid, scared, or fearful.  Rather they say be at peace, smile, and be joyful.
