i've had just about the worst week i've had in a very long time and one of the only bright spots i've had has been this space. i rush home to see what else you all have to say and i admit being convicted by and inspired with all that's been discussed. you all are spiffing. really. spiffing.
and, to jesus chick - thanks for your graciousness. i appreciate how you've helped push my thinking and searching.
a little note on holy week...i haven't been too cognizant of the significance this week, i'm sad to say. i've been wrapped up in my own crappy situation at work, worried about my future (i just quit a cushy job to do something more relevant and now i'm worrying about, of all things, material stuff) and so my mind has not been on the Christ's suffering or our redemption because of it.
my inattention eats at me. there's a voice saying 'slow down. be still. think of Me.' and, like the petulant girl i am, i chafe at that voice.
let's hope i finally turn my self toward that voice this week.
happy easter, everyone.
