happy belated birthday to us

Wow, it's been a long week. One week ago tonight we gathered to celebrate the end of year four and the beginning of year five for our community. Jacob's Well is emerging from our toddlerhood and becoming a big kid. It was an incredibly encouraging night as old friends came to celebrate with us and memories and prayers and dreams and visions and hopes were shared. I don't really know what to say except thanks.
to Corey and Mark for the tunes
to B and Lisa and Corey and Melisha and Lance for the prayers
to Josh and Kenda for their thoughts about the days ahead
to Stacy for sharing the picture of houses around the world
to everyone who shared their memories
to the folks who took care of food and drinks and balloons for the night
to Haley for braving the 5 kids upstairs
to everyone who came and took part and enjoyed the night together
to people all over the world who have been and were praying for us
to all of the friends who have been a part of our community from the first days until these
to God for His faithfulness and love and ability to surprise us again and again

Here's to year 5. The ride just gets wilder from here.
