Here I raise my ebenezer...

I just created this blog on a whim. It's kind of a long story. I will tell it one day.
But right now, I'm excited. I want a record of what God is doing in this city.
And a record of what he will do here, in San Marcos, California
in the hearts and minds and lives of kids and grown ups in this city. for eternity.
An ebeneezer of sorts.

Samuel took a large stone and placed it between the towns of Mizpah and Jeshanah.
He named it Ebenezer—"the stone of help"—for he said,
"Up to this point the Lord has helped us!" —1 Samuel 7:12, NLT
Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I'm come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God;
he, to rescue me from danger,
interposed his precious blood.
Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
