      --DEAR KATIE
      WHAT'S ALL THIS STUFF ABOUT STAGES? YOU DON'T FIND CHRIST IN STAGES
      AND THE ROAD ISN'T BUMPY.
      LIFE IS BUMPY BUT JESUS IS AS CONSISTENT AS THE SUN AND MORE SO. YOU
      MAY BE NEW TO THE FAITH AND YOUR NOTE IMPLIES YOU STRAYED AWAY SO YOU
      MAY NOT BE NEW. BUT JESUS DIDN'T STRAY AWAY FROM YOU HE WAS IN YOU
      THE WHOLE TIME AND YOU WERE IN HIM. YOU DIDN'T KNOW THAT BECAUSE YOU
      WERE ONLY SEEING WITH YOUR EYES BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING TO
      JESUS HE WAS THERE. HE IS NOT HAVING A BUMPY TIME EXCEPT BECAUSE OF
      PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND MY WHO STRAY AWAY. THE STRAYING ISN'T GOOD FOR
      US BUT NOW THAT YOU ARE BACK IF YOU LOOK AT HIM YOU WILL FIND HE
      NEVER LEFT IT WAS YOU AND HE IS NOT ASHAMED OF YOU.
      HE KNOWS WHAT WE ARE. HE KNOWS WE ARE IN A DARK CONFUSING PLACE AND
      EVEN CHURCH CAN ONLY HELP A LITTLE.
      YOU MAY NEED A GOOD CHURCH TO HELP SOME BUT IF YOU CAN'T SEE JESUS
      YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HUNGRY AND THIRSTY. OR WHAT IF YOU START TO THINK
      THE CHURCH HAS SATISFIED YOU AND DON'T USE YOU SPIRIT EYES AND SEE
      JESUS ALL AROUND YOU. HE IS IN FRONT OF YOU AND IN YOU AND YOU ARE
      IN HIM.
      I LOVE THE HYMN THE DEEP DEEP LOVE OF JESUS. LET'S SEE THE FIRST
      VERSE GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS. UNDERNEATH US ALL AROUND US IS THE
      CURRENT OF HIS LOVE. HE IS IN YOU AND YOU ARE IN HIM. ASK HIM TO
      TEACH YOU TO USE YOUR FAITH TO SEE HIM. DON'T BECOME A CRAZY WITH
      THIS. I THINK FAITH IS A RUDEMENTARY ORGAN RIGHT NOW AND IT
      FUNCTIONS SECONDARY TO OUR SENSES NOW. WHEN OUR BODY FALLS AWAY I
      THINK IT BECOMES PRIMARY. REMINDS ME OF CATERPILLARS. EVER NOTICE
      THE LITTLE SPOTS OF COLORS ON THEM? THEN IN THE TRANSITION THE SPOTS
      BECOME THE ENTIRE WING. THE ORGANS MAKE THE SAME TRANSFORMATION.
      DEAR KATIE JESUS IS NOT BUMPY AND HE LOVES YOU. IT IS GOOD TO READ
      THE GOSPELS AND GALATIONS AND EPHESIANS. LOOK HOW HE LOVED AND
      LOVES. HE IS NOT GONE AND IS VERY MUCH ALIVE. JEFF
