If you take anything away from this little
book, it should be the grateful rearview
mirror version of a life (to date) spent
searching for the rich gems our wonderful
God has to share with us all.
select a chapter from the story of Dooblebug, see below:
Doodlebug wasn't always Doodlebug to me. Judy was and is
the most precious person I know. I still love to sit and watch her do
"her thing." She actually is more beautiful today than the
night I first saw her. They say dynamite comes in small packages; so does
nitroglycerin. Actually, when we had been married a couple of years, we
had horses and someone in that setting called her Doodlebug, and it
stuck. It "fit."
Along with others, I often wonder how this little bitty thing can do all
that she does and do it all so well. There is an inner reservoir from
which she draws, and this wonderful apprehension of who God is comes
spilling out of her. I watch her genuinely love on her students as God
loves them; I watch her share the Word with a passion not often displayed
in the class or the pulpit. Judy just shares that passion in or out of
the classroom. There is no arrogance there, just a certainty and wealth
of study that is profound. And yet, Judy leaves room for others to hold
another opinion -- and often will provide them with Scriptures which
defend their position.
It is said that Judy suffers from the malady of Myopia. One would be
hard-pressed to find anyone else as focused, but that is the rare
attribute which drives her. Dr. Doodlebug (as she is sometimes called)
searches for God with all her tenacity, strength, and passion. No wonder
God presses into her the truths and gems she shares, and He breathes on
her this exquisite fragrance (of the knowledge of Him).
Judy is the real deal who doesn't solicit or even go looking for
prophetic direction. She is impelled to do whatever her hand finds to do.
She does it with all her might! If you take anything away from this
little book, it should be the grateful rearview mirror version of a life
(to date) spent searching for the rich gems our wonderful God has to
share with us all. Doodlebug truly is a term of endearment, isn't it.
