time for some randomness...

*mere and i went to see davey b. and the gabe dixon band on friday night in the atl. so good. we ate sushi at strip and then enjoyed the bouncy loveliness of some barnes tunes. i can't really explain how much i enjoy that kid's music...well, i probably can explain it--but then i would very possibly sound totally weird. at any rate, it was a great show. gabe dixon was mucho enjoyable as well. ever after you. check it.
*when i'm in the car, there is always music playing...whether it's the ipod, radio (on VERY rare occasions), or a cd...something is filling my ears with goodness. however, when i am driving to the spring on sunday mornings i like to just kinda be quiet, maybe pray, get ready for the day ahead. this past sunday, i found myself singing a bunch of old hymns out loud. one of the coolest times with jesus in recent memory. dang, we like to make it complicated...but it really doesn't have to be.
*the job is crazy busy right now, and that's just fine with me. it's that feeling you get when you know that something's brewing.
*ever been in the middle of some question or struggle with God where you were waiting on an answer or even just for Him to speak...and then realized He already had? it's easy for me to become so focused on whatever the thing is that i'm dealing with that i don't even recognize that God has moved in me. that happened the other day. it was the coolest feeling--like all of a sudden the sun broke through the clouds. and i saw it once i took the time to look up.

so hi.

it's been a while.

i know you're probably wondering what all the "i killed the blog" stuff was about...and that's okay. wonder is a beautiful thing.

rest assured that the time away was necessary and beneficial. i needed to take some breaths. live life. be messy. remind myself of some things i'd forgotten.

here's what i've got for you today...

"safe? of course He isn't safe. but He is good."
--c.s.lewis (the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe)

let that sink in for a minute. seriously, stop and think about the weight of those few sentences.

the reality of that statement has been resonating with me for the last few weeks. God is not safe. He has not promised me security, or ease, or a life free of risk and heartbreak.

but He is good.

whether His goodness brings me happiness or grief...He is still the same God who placed every single star in the night sky. He knows what He's doing.



yeah, i thought this thing was dead too.

but i've found myself missing the blog a little bit and having some things to share.

what can i say?

let's try this again.

p.s. i've missed you people.
