Hope you're having a great Sunday (if you're reading this on Sunday:) My family is in Indianapolis for a few days, enjoying some cool, sunshiny days. Now that our pledge drive is over, all of us are just having a "thank you" weekend, thanking God for His favor and presence during the past few days of our fall pledge drive. It felt like a revival at the K-LOVE studios. There was so much prayer, many heartfelt conversations in the hallways, and a lot of deep reflection. In the midst of the drive, K-LOVE lost a dear employee and friend. Keith Whipple left earth to run into the arms of Jesus. Instead of a funeral, he wanted a celebration party, which he had yesterday, with many of his friends gathering to celebrate his life. My favorite memory of Keith was when we had a K-LOVE land-lover cruise for all the employees who didn't go on the K-LOVE cruise a few years ago. I remember him in a Hawaiin shirt, holding my son Jon David for a picture, with the biggest smile on his face. That memory stays with me the most. He was Eric's boss here at K-LOVE when Eric first got here, so Eric really knew him well. We're happy for Keith, that he's in heaven. And we ask that you pray for his family because they are hurting. (I just found the picture of Keith and Jon David--see below.)
Even though I'm not posting the Proverbs for a few days, keep reading one a day for each day in October, and I will, too. I like the idea of us growing together. We visited a church here in Indy today, and it was a wonderful worship time and a wonderful sermon. We sure hope you have a church you get to go to regularly. It makes all the difference when it comes to spiritual growth.
Okay, we're going to go enjoy the rest of our day, and a few days off. Talk to you again on Wednesday. Call Eric Monday or Tuesday morning and tell him about your weekend, or whatever:) 800-900-1300. AND ENJOY ALL THE PLEDGE-DRIVE-LESS MUSIC!!! :)
blessings and k-love, Lisa
