applesauce. there is nothing like a good applesauce fight. come on.. try it. you know that slight hesitation before flinging your spoon across the room, don't hold back. let it go. live the vision. and that's all i'll say. (mel)
ok know lets get down to the nitty gritty. (josh)....
why do we make such a big deal about stupid things. no seriously. in america we are so consumed with what drink we want at starbucks and what we are going to pick out on the menu, we miss out.
i have never really been anywhere.. other than mississippi, nebraska, and colorado... and well that's about it. but it seems to me like we live in a big world. and i know a lot of people say it's small but there is a lot out there. i have been thinking a lot lately about different parts of the world. especially africa.
do you ever get a word or a name stuck in your head. and like rainman.. it keeps repeating in your subconscious over and over and over and over... well you get it. and when you stop thinking about what you are thinking about you realize that all along there it was... not pertaining to anything.. just a word. lately it's been "kampala." no big deal. just the capital of uganda. maybe i'm supposed to open a body shop in uganda. or maybe run for president there. uh... the bad thing is i hate bodywork and i don't think that i would be a good politician. and melanie hates politics and i don't really hate bodywork. i just hate chemicals. so there.
my whole point.. uh... is there a point in one's life when they stop dreaming? cap off their passions. God given passions, you know the ones that make your heart thump so hard and you feel like you need to burst.. say in a weird blog... ? i don't know, you know. but, i think the secret of it all is losing yourself. the more i know God the more i realize i know nothing, really. and that feels so liberating.
it's weird how there are seeds He has planted along the way. and how we can look at them as coincidences. like the creating of a baby in a mother's womb. and miss the miracle of His pursuit and nudging and timing. and before you know it, you find yourself at His feet. not like metaphorically, but really. and then it's done. and then it's begun.
but then there's today. how about your dream?
