When passion takes on our purpose,
When searching ones embrace the light.
When skeptics find themselves down on their knees,
You'll know it's here.
When you hear a sound as loud as thunder
And you hear a cry that shakes the ground beneath you,
When you hear a shout that shatters the darkness,
You'll know it's here…

When the lost find a name worth believing in,
And the falling get back onto their feet,
And the broken start to dream again,
And the sound of hope fills these streets,
You'll know it's here…

Revolution - can you feel it?
Revolution cry.
Revolution - can you hear it?
Revolution cry.
And I believe it, and I believe it…
How long do we have to wait?
And how long will we stay silent?
When will this weeping generation dance again?
Oh God when will the truth be restored?

From a very, very special friend. I thought it was worth posting. THANK YOU for your incredible encouragement... You will never know how much God has used it.


I was reading on your blog, which I used to do quite frequently but
haven't since midterms. And I read "Encounters" and where you asked if we know how much we mean to you. And I laughed because I don't think YOU know how much you mean to US!! Kelly, just ask Pete, or me and Brian, or any of your real and closest friends that have stuck through no matter what - we all see in you a very special kind of love, it's unusual and because it's so unusual it make an impact on people. We are only asked to walk through this life with ONE person forever (that would be Pete
for you *grin* and Brian for me) so we only get a tiny bit of time to make a mark on other people's lives.

You know how to make that mark last even when people would rather forget it! It's the mark of God's deep deep love. :-)

On the rest of your post...yes, I've been discouraged with the petty conflicts and "I hate you's" that I see blatantly and furtively lived out on this campus. It's heartbreaking because *I* want to help them too....

There's been a song God put on my heart nearly all this semester that I want to sing in chapel sometime towards the end of the semester. I think it applies here at PHC more than any other place I've been.

And just so you know...I tend to think of you and your place in my life especially that first summer) when I hear this song. :-)

Have a GOOD day! And laugh once or twice, Brian tells me it's theraputic.


Somebody's down to their last dime,
Somebody's running out of time,
Not too far from here

Somebody's got nowhere else to go
Somebody needs a little hope
Not too far from here

And I may not know their name
But I'm praying just the same
That You'll use me Lord to wipe away a tear
'Cause somebody's crying
Not too far from here

Somebody's troubled and confused
Somebody's got nothing left to lose
Not too far from here

Somebody's forgotten how to trust
Somebody's dying for love
Not too far from here

It may be a stranger's face
But I'm praying for Your grace
To move in me and take away the fear
'Cause somebody's hurting
Not too far from here

Help me, Lord, not to turn away from pain
Help me not to rest while those around me weep
Give me Your strength and compassion
When somebody finds the road of life too steep

Now, I'm letting down my guard
And I'm opening my heart
Help me speak your love to every needful ear
Jesus is waiting
Not too far from here
Jesus is waiting
Not too far from here
