This is what I see in the morning...

I'm sitting in my breakfast "nook" this morning with the cool breeze flowing freely in as I listen to a sermon online.
I like to think of everyone else around the country who is just waking up too. Maybe they are still comfy in bed or already cooking breakfast. My favorite image is of a happy family still in their pajamas, the kids still too sleepy to be annoying :)... kidding!

I feel thankful to have a warm bed and breakfast "nook" in the first place. I don't deserve it all.

I keep putting my hopes in fleeting seasons of life. Beauty, clothes, health do not satisfy my soul... this is one of the evidences that I do indeed have a soul. The only time it is content is in worship of Yahweh, God, Jesus.

Today I:

Felt a wee bit better

Got good Christmas presents for my family at Half Price Books

Went to the grocery

Made grilled cheese

Made chocolate chunk cookies for my boy

Watched an episode of Dawson's Creek

Cleaned my apartment

Attempted to go for a run

Painted my nails

Played my guitar

Now I'm waiting on Matthew Lindley to come over so we can go see Easy A at the dollar theatre!

Adventures and Sunsets.

I was walking last night and had a thought...

I am not an arrogant enough human being to rule out the possibilities that there is more than what my eyes can see...

and I am not an arrogant enough Christian to think I have it all figured out.

But when it comes down to it, what really matters, as I take my walks in a new season's chill and watch as the sun sets on yet another day and as my soul is awakened in powerful worship, I'm not dumb enough to ignore the fact that if this is just a glimpse of His love, I better not waste any more time on nonsense and fleeting desires.

I want to embrace this world for my God is alive in it... I will consume the adventure and will gladly in turn be consumed.
