Staying in Kansas City

So, by now you may have heard the rumor that the Clarks are staying in Kansas City. Not a rumor, folks… it’s da troof.

What is this? you may be crying, as you rend your garments. Cut that out. Nobody wants to see in your rended garments. I’ll splain.

Originally when we came to KC, we planned for a year, although most of our family types said yeah right and we would never come back and such. One family member strongly suggested we stay gone. Something about the door, and a butt… I don’t remember the exact turn of phrase.

When we left, and all along, we have known that our time might be extended… that wacky God and his shenanigans.

So we’ve been deciding whether to come back to Texas in 2009 or stay in KC… and through a series of prophetic happenings, as well as open doors for both of us to “do stuff” here, we decided to stay. This time, we feel a little wary of saying when we’ll be back. Could be a year, or I could have grandkids in Missouri. We’re calling it “indefinitely”.

The thing is, our families and half of our band is (are?) in Texas. So we’ll be around quite a bit. Plus, we are not so intimidated by a 12 hour drive… wusses.

So you’ll still see me, especially if you hang around Mexican restaurants at the holidays.

We’re excited about the things we’re going to be doing, being involved with the Call, and adoption, and helping set up a special needs ministry… lots going on!

Plus, it’s snowing. I’m bout to bust out the Christmas spirit with a vengeance. Stay tuned.

  9. I am glad you are going to stay. I was regretting that you guys were going back to Texas without us getting a chance to know each other. Maybe now we can schedule some hang out time? I’ll bring my little one over to your place, and do dishes, or fold laundry for you, and we can chat? If it’s a good day, I might even be able to provide cookies?
