stairwell accompaniment:The Shins-Caring is Creepy

What is it like to be me today?

Things I love today:

*The hilarity in catting and jowling and how confused you all are now wondering what the heck catting and jowling are.

*Truth

*Being on-call and never, ever knowing what to expect in childbirth.

*Our unshoveled steps that require outstanding agility and snow climbing expertise.

*Identities erased.

*Sharing with someone something that you desperately love and seeing in their face that they don’t appreciate it at all the way you do.

*The ability to serve God more effectively together than each of you could separately = a relationship worth investing in.

*Miles and miles of mountains and I ask for the sea.

*The mobile yellow pages.

*Reading.

“What the world longs for from the Christian religion is the witness of men and women daring enough to be different, humble enough to make mistakes, wild enough to be burned in the fire of love, real enough to make others see how unreal they are. Jesus, Son of the living God, anoint us with the fire this day. Let your Word not shine in our hearts, but let it burn. Let there be no division, compromise, or holding back. Separate the mystics from the romantics and goad us to that daredevil leap into the abyss of your love.”

-Manning

“If God is your partner — make your plans large.”

D.L. Moody
