Excerpts from a Jumbled Journal

"these things weigh heavy

these things are important. 

but sometimes, when you wrestle things with a whole heart, 

you can engage only half a mind.

so, sit.

listen to music.

and just be sad.”

[You’ve Had What You Need — The Classic City Collective]

Have you heard the songs I sing over you?

Have you seen My dance I dance for you?

Sit and wait, for My joy has made you strong.

Strength for today

And bright hope for tomorrow

[Where Are You — Kalen Nash feat Aslyn]

Where are You?

You’re gone

But so close to home

Far enough to reach

But not to touch

my words are timid

Your silence is long.

"Everybody’s talkin’ bout my cell phone. I’ve got my cell phone. And it’s the smallest one."

"You were made for victory."
Lately, these words have shaken me up a bit, seeming to resonate in my very bones.
How great it is that we as humans have the privilege to grow and learn and change. We are not defined by a particular moment in time, but over and over we are given precious opportunities to be transformed. To be more Christlike. More joyful. More confident.
And we are beckoned to step into this victory of divine intervention again and again and again and again and again; the call never ceases. 
Forward is a grand direction, my friends.

My vacation weekend was restful and adventurous and in a word, sublime.
It was not unlike this lovely picture of a fine, old 2002.
