In the past few years Aaron and I have been dreaming big dreams for something. We talk about it lots. We dream about it lots and it seems to be something that we can never do. It’s that thing in your life that you want to do so badly, but it seems ridiculous and way out of your reach. It’s that thing that you sit and talk about it and you wonder if just maybe you could pull this off.
I want to get to the end of my life and know that I did something. To know that I helped at least one person. To know that I did all I could do while I was here. When we leave, life is grand and we’re with Jesus for eternity, but I want what I did here on earth to matter.
If I could dream up something really big it would be a place for single mom’s to get their feet back on the ground. To get their life back together. Aaron and I have visions of a place where a mom can come and live with her children and learn to do life again. She can have a safe place to call home. She can have people that love her and her kids unconditionally no matter what. She can allow her heart to be mended by people and most importantly by God.
Aaron and I would love to buy some land outside of Austin and go with our dreams. You see how big this seems to us. Land. A house for us. A house for our guests and children. Another host family house. A library/computer room. A rec room for guests. A play area for kids. A studio for Aaron. Oh our dreams could go on for pages as to what we want to do for these woman and their kids.
I love to dream. Sometimes I can dream and never do. I just dream and dream and dream. I am praying to DO something soon. I want to DO this.
Mercy Village – a place to start fresh.
