“Timing is everything.”

Think of the importance of timing in:
Baking a cake …. Selling a house …. Telling a joke …. Talking to your spouse about a problem …. Buying/selling stock …. Going to class …. Traffic signals on a busy street …. Approaching your boss for a raise …. Asking “the one” to marry you …. Being in the right place at the right time.

The wisdom book of Ecclesiastes shows the importance of timing. In chapter 3, it says:
    There is a time for everything,
          and a season for every activity under heaven:

    a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.
    …. He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Our 10th Annual Dinner centers around For Such a Time as This ..... 

Our responses to God’s timing in our lives can make an enormous difference in the outcome. At our dinner, you will see what God’s timing has brought about during the last year at Living Well. We will also share what we believe He has for us in the coming year.

We would love for you to come and share our joy! The dinner is October 16th. We will have dinner and a silent auction from 6-7:30. Yes, Ed is cooking a magnificent meal! You can eat at any time while you are bidding on some outstanding auction items. The ministry presentation will be begin at 7:30.

If you can attend, please RSVP by October 9th. You can call us at 792-2586, or go to this link for more info or to RSVP, or email

Please feel free to bring guests who may be interested in hearing about what God is doing! Just let us know who is coming.

The fact that God called us and gave us a passion to see marriages and families restored still amazes us! We thank Him everyday for the opportunity of having such a critical ministry in our world. We thank Him for the work He does in marriages every day in the lives of so many families that we see. The need continues to increase.

The voices speaking against marriage in our culture are gaining volume and strength. The Divine voice does not shout but comes gently, not with lures but with wisdom. Our influence does not increase by yelling louder but by caring more deeply and engaging more personally. Read more about that topic on our blog, Living Well in Marriage, "Me, Marriage, and Culture."

During the pre-election season, we get very focused on which candidate might be best for our country. Many think the country is going to collapse if their candidate doesn’t win. As Americans, we have the responsibility and privilege to vote and participate in the selection of our leaders. But as Christians, we must not lose sight that our hope is not in a candidate or in our government. Our hope is in Christ!

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. Our love in Christ,

Donna and Ed Edwards
