Perception

My mind is whirling.
My heart in shambles.
My compass spinning uncontrollably, leaving me directionless.

I currently have a list sitting in front of me, a list of possibilities. A list that over the next five months will evolve, things added and crossed off and, hopefully, be whittled down to one option.
And that will be next.

But I can't help but ask myself, "What if nothing's left? What if I end up with a list of closed doors?" Scary.
Well, I suppose if it comes to that, I will stand in the face of uncertainty and remind myself of this: Maybe I need to lose what I (think I) want to do to find what I'm supposed to do.


It is not, after all, about me...no matter how strongly my doubt holds me.


out of chaos life is being found in You
you make beautiful things
you make beautiful things out of the dust
you make beautiful things
you make beautiful things out of us

$573

Something new is building in my heart tonight.

A crazy idea that has presented itself once, maybe twice, before within the past few weeks, but was shrugged off with no further thought.

But tonight, tonight I let that thought settle. I asked myself, "Why not?" I talk about living big, about going and doing. Well, it's time.
I don't think I'm meant to ignore this.

Yeah, it may be just another crazy idea.
But crazy ideas have changed my life...
...Crazy ideas change the world.

You Make Beautiful Things

The past few days have shown me more beauty than I have known in a long while. It has revealed itself in the simplest and unexpected forms: dinner with friends in a beautiful apartment, helping a dear friend hang pictures in her new apartment, words of affirmation, working at Hillcrest, hugs from two little friends, Jacob's Well, generosity, and the laughter that has found its way back into my daily life.

I thank God the scales have been pealed back and I finally see the tremendous beauty of my life.
