is on its way to g-vegas. if you're around, you should certainly make plans to be at carpentar's cellar tonite around 8:30 for lee and the guys with joshua opening. and get there early. these cats always drum up huge crowds.

so, i've been reading some old posts from this time last's really interesting to see how life has changed in so many ways and yet how some things remain almost unchanged. the last year has been full of blessings and good times and, naturally, some rough stuff as well. this is a quote that i shared a year ago that truly sums up what i want life to mean for me...

"to wait open-endedly is an enormously radical attitude toward life. so is to trust that something will happen to us that is far beyond our imaginings. so, too, is giving up control over our future and letting God define our life, trusting that God molds us according to God's love and not according to our fear. The spiritual life is a life in which we wait, actively present to the moment, trusting that new things will happen to us, new things that are far beyond our own imagination, fantasy, or prediction. that, indeed, is a very radical stance toward life in a world preoccupied with control."

so much that i can't really explain it. there is just something so amazing about being with people who know you...faults, dumb decisions, and all...and still love you. i think i've seen the clearest picture of Christ and the way He loves us through my friendships lately. friendships that may have been neglected a little bit. friends whose advice i did not heed. none of those things matter when you really care about always welcome them back. that to me is the definition of community and love. i am so thankful for the incredible little family i have around me. thanks, friends.

thanks to karl for rejoicing with me when things are good, for knowing what to do when they're not, and for always shooting straight with me. i love you.

thanks to my boys (jonny, shua, and mcd) for making me laugh in the betty rubble way, for looking out for me and my girly, emotional heart, and for reminding me that i deserve the very best. up your butt.
