3 Reasons to Pray of Us

Something I love about Social Media is this push for companies to show their vulnerable/human side. In many ways, this new technological/social push in business has been about getting back to the "mom and pop" days where you knew the owner of the shop you frequented. But I want to make sure I tell you one important fact within all this that may be overlooked:

We need your prayers!


1. We're human. Sonlight may be a corporate entity, but everyone here is a regular person. While my co-workers often display super-human brilliance and abilities (which consistently leave me in awe), I think they'd be the first to admit that they don't have everything together. I know I sure don't. We could really use your prayers that God will take what little we have to offer and use it for His glory and to expand His kingdom.

2. We're doing big things. I'm not suggesting that we shouldn't pray about small things--like breakfast--but that when we're striving to follow where God leads we need tons of wisdom and grace. Please pray that we will have eyes to see where God is leading us and the strength to follow when and where He calls.

3. We're working with technology. 'nough said.

June 1 is fast approaching. (Who thought it'd be a good idea to take a holiday right before the big day? That's what I want to know! <smile>) And there are so many pieces that need to come together. So many elements that are freaking me out. So much that has been stressing me to the max.

So that's, I guess, a forth reason to pray for us: I'm really high strung right now. The pressure of making this event rock is weighing heavily on me. I want it to be awesome! And I can't do it on my own.

So, between now and Tuesday--and then the days, weeks, months and years following--please pray for us when you think of it. We appreciate it. I appreciate it. And, by the grace of God, we will have at least another 20 years to serve you and your family.

Thank you.

Prayin' Luke - my dh works with technology and I swear it's the devil's playground. Literally.

And I know you're stressed cause your headline doesn't make sense.

I'm looking forward to Tuesday... and will doubly so now I know that someone (probably you and many others) will probably be working all weekend.

Thanks for all you do!

I for one, am excited about the online seminar you all are hosting-this is gonna be cool. And it will all come together nicely. :0) Now get back to work, I expect the best for ya all. (I am jazzing ya-we all understand that when technology is involved-anything can happen) Best wishes for a great June 1 celebration program.

Thank you all for your prayers! Despite plenty of setbacks and issues the event was, overall, a huge success. Thank you!

...and, yes, typos are a good indication that I'm stressed [smile].
