Sometime in late August I stood on the bank of a pond, and I held a fishing pole. Beside me stood my least outdoorsy daughter. I’d just hooked and lost a bluegill, and I wasn’t messing around. It was hot out, and I wanted to go inside with more than one scrawny fish on the line.

“Mom!” she yelled, and I shushed her.

“What is it?” I whispered back.

“Look at my face!” she cried. There was panic behind her eyes, and she was sure that I knew the reason just by glancing at her face.

“What’s wrong?” I asked with a furrowed brow. “I don’t see anything!”

She wiped her face with the back of her hand, and then she looked up at me again. “What,” she slowed, “is wrong with my face?”

“Oh honey,” I laughed. “That’s called sweat.”

Yes, this Texan transplant to the mountains is now raising kids in Missouri. Clearly God has a sense of humor.

  1. Been a fan of your via Profoundly Seth for a couple of years now. I am feeling God pushing me to make a major relocation (put my house on the market, put my kids on notice, the whole bit) after 50 years in one place. I would enjoy knowing more about how and why you moved 🙂

  2. Wow – that’s quite a change for you I’m sure! So, what brings you to Missouri?

  3. I live in Missouri too, the southwestern part. You certainly get to enjoy all four seasons here, sometimes all in the same week ;-).

  4. I live in Missouri! What brought you here? Hope you are all doing well.

  5. My sister and my parents live in Missouri – I hope you find sweet relationships there. What part?
