odd day…


frisco was out of school today and i had to go do Kenedy’s “student led conference”  it took about 20 minutes and it was neat to hear her tell me how she was doing.  i spent the rest of the day with Kenedy.  we went to the library and checked out books.  i picked up Chuck Klosterman’s Fargo Rock City, an interview type memoir of Bono and an autobiography of Diablo Coty who wrote the screenplay to Juno.  for some reason i’m really into biographies right now.  i also picked up a DVD of how to play in the style of the Dave Mathews Band, so we’ll see how that is.  Kenedy picked up some Kingdom Hearts graphic novels.  she loves Manga. 

so it’s become a struggle…i want to believe that God has it all under control, and i know that He does.  something in me always wants to take it back into my control and try to do things myself.  i make so many other things “g”od’s in my life.  so many idols.  He says no god’s before Him.  i want nothing more than for Him to be supreme in all things, but can’t seem to tear myself away from the things.  i mean the things that mean nothing, the things He created, the things He can take away in a moment, yet i am so hesitant to let go of all the stuff…what is wrong with me?  if you read this blog, please offer up a prayer for us today.  i will never lose sight of the awesome things He has done in the past, but this season has been hard.  i read a question the other day and wanted to ask it of my readers.  i really would love some comments or a response…

from John Piper…

“the critical question for our generation–and for every generation–is this:  if you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven if Christ was not there?”

would you be okay with that?  if we truly love Jesus, we would never be satisfied in a heaven without Christ!

  1. Ahh, Chuck… God uses Piper and Chan to kick my butt, too. We are so spoiled, aren’t we? I’ll pass along your blog to my husband. He just started blogging on wordpress (“we are not our own”).
