This is Adam and Charise. They are celebrating their first anniversary. They are fixing up a house two doors down from our church, the church they pastor. I feel like I'm just getting to know Charise. I know that she is quiet and artistic and downright elegant. I know that she loves Jesus...and Adam. I know Adam a little better. He's always smiling and loves to tell people how awesome they are. Adam and Charise and I and some other people have decided to meet weekly and worship and pursue God together. Our church is a hot mess sometimes, and sometimes it's perfect and beautiful. And sometimes the beauty comes from staying in community with these people even when we are a hot mess. I'm thankful for these two, and I'm praying and hoping for good things for them in this new house.
