A few thoughts running through my head . . .

Is it possible to regret good decisions?
I haven’t spent quality time with my dad in what feels like forever; I am excited not only to get a week of vacation, but a week spent of laughter, fun and lasting memories.
I miss my car. Yes, I am still driving the least sexy car you will ever see in your life. It does not scream fun by any means of the word.
Matthew 7:13-14 is currently what I am wrestling with.
I have read The Naked Soul by Tim Alan Gardner and am currently finishing Weird: Because Normal Isn’t Working by Craig Groschel. Great reads. I can totally get on board with their philosophy on community and vulnerability . . . I can even be passionate about it, yet, recently I doubt that in our culture it even can exists. I think we have gotten so complacent and happy with meritocracy, we often fail to push the envelope--fail to truly live set apart . . . unfortunately myself included. It bothers me. For now, I’m setting this aside to dissect another day.
It’s September which means fall is coming—Fall colors, apple cider, sweaters and scarves. This makes me happy.
I miss my kayak. No car, no boat rack. I was looking forward to an awesome kayaking trip while on vaca. But it’s not looking like my car will be ready by Saturday (which creates a whole dilemma in itself getting the rental back when I am out of state). However, when this chic does get her car back—the water is where you will be able to find me.
I have been in a weird music mood lately. Today’s song of choice, I’m only happy when it rains by Garbage. I know, I know it is dark, but the rain in pounding on the roof here and I can’t get the song out of my head, so instead of fighting it . . . I am just going with it.
I couldn’t be more excited about this weekend. It’s been a lot of work, and still have two days of pulling all the last minute details together, but once Saturday comes and I get in the park—it’s just about loving on my friends . . .and those guys are a joy to love on!!
For now . . .that’s all I’ve got. Happy Wednesday!
