been there…

it’s hard sometimes to remember that part of what we’re created to be is so much about being the created in the creation…

yep…that’s about it.  i am tired…rolled the ankle today, getting this crazy cold that’s going around,  way too much stuff to do…shaping up to be a swell week.  need another break already!  chili weather’s always nice.  i’ll try to get back to the posting soon.

the simplest things…

this morning my mind has been on the idea that grandness=happiness. so often we look to that which has the most impact or bells or whistles to make us happy. maybe it is “stuff” that we seek, or a place or a relationship… last night’s middle school community group lesson looked at part of a picture of happiness. going through this piece of scripture with our students along with some recent conversations are making me look at the things that make me happy in light of god’s provision…

“What I’m trying to do here is get you to relax, not be so preoccupied with getting so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Don’t be afraid of missing out. You’re my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself.” Luke 12:29-31

in the meantime… here is happiness in even the most mundane and childish

recently i’ve stumbled into three or four conversations with some of our high schoolers at 3rd that ended up revealing some truths about our culture’s disturbing presentation of body-image and beauty. nothing tremendously new or earth shattering in these conversations, but today brought a conversation with a friend that was really tough. so, tonight i find myself watching a new network tv startup that shows only commercials called firebrand (yes, mindless…) and i remembered the dove campaign for real beauty… powerful stuff…

newness is always nice. i find that when things become frustrating in certain areas in my life i turn to that thing which most folks dread and fear and i embrace it…

so this newness is an avenue of change in my little world. having just returned from a nice little respite from life, work, ministry, the drama, etc… i feel renewed and refreshed and have a bit of clarity to sort out. strange thing that clarity… while it brings a clearer picture, it somehow often becomes an agent of change. so quickly in this conversation we are back at the dreaded, rarely cherished, change. so here’s the b-log change. changed the place i blog, changed the look (still not settled on it and thinking of changing the name…b-log sounded so crafty somewhere along the way…?

so here i go again…maybe i’ll break into double digit readers this go-round…? holding of breath begins………now.
