  • I’m in lovely Florida, will be here for the next month. I’ve been loving my daily run along the ocean, the relaxing pace of Pinecraft….  It’s been rather cold since I’ve been here though, but I’ll be soaking in the sun when it comes out…

    Good news and bad news…

    Best first of all:

    I’M GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!! I am sure that Ben and I must be the happiest couple that ever lived!  The bells will ring from the steeple in June – I cannot wait!!  

    Bad news: I had a bad accident last nite, busted my car perty bad… Not sure what to do about the mission trip I was planning on going on… Lots of prayer going on these days! Tests my faith and yet I want these life experiences to strengthen my faith as well… God IS good, and the circumstances around me don’t determine His goodness or not. Takes faith to believe that, especially when the circumstances appear at odds with His character…

  • I think you have me confused with another Greg. My name is Greg Miller and I was at SMBI all four terms of 2003-2004 when Ben was Ass’t Dean. I just thought I’d let you know so that you didn’t think he was getting your messages. Have a great week. 

  • i will just add to the 14 comments that already express just what i was gonna say. But surely only two of them can feel the same way about it as i do!

      Because we are sisters! I sure am missing you down in FL!
     But i am trying to remember..i am not losing a sister..i am gaining a brother!!!

  • congratulations clarita!!!  i wish you guys the best!

  • Clarita Barkman, you have GOT to update this blog once in a while! ;)
