A way to survive the empty nest and a "cracked "relationship with a fun daily challenge of new experiences, reflections, sources, and some biblical guidance. I hope this blog which offers a fun journey to survive by trying something new, either vicariously or by doing, will result in a survival tool kit to replace the past familiar doing, giving, and/or incorporating the interest of your child or your long gone love interest, with some new self interest(s).
I have been to all kinds of rock concerts but I have never ventured
to a Christian/rock concert. On my way
home from my Purdue visit, a last min text united me with some friends at the Festival
of Hope. Little Golden books reminds us to “give thanks” and this was a great
way to give thanks with music. There were groups from the Charlie Daniels Band to
Michael W. Smith (listen) and Billy Graham's son, Franklin Graham spoke.

I always thought this type of thing would be to “churchy”
for me but it did not feel like that at all. The atmosphere looked
like any other rock concert but the energy was different. There was great music and
for many, it was a way to be engulfed in the worship of God. It was an explosively positive celebration.
Large crowd followed Jesus as he came down the mountainside.
Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached Jesus. He Knelt before him, worshiping,
“Lord,” the man said, “if you want to , you can make me well gain.”
Jesus touch him, “I want to”
he said. “Be Healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared. (Matthew 8:1-4)
When you come to God he restores and heals.
