Back In Auburn.

Being back in Auburn for the summer makes me oh so happy. I love this town in the summer. Some think its lonely, but I think its quite the opposite. There are only a handful (okay a few handfuls) of people here, so you end up hanging out with the same people all summer long... makes for great times getting to know people better.

We said goodbye to Gay Street. Some girls were on our front porch yesterday when I drove into town. I'm so sad to leave that place, to leave those people. There is nothing nothing nothing like porch time at that house. Nothing.

worst post ever.

Yes, this is a horrible blog posting. However, I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I followed through with it regardless. I drove by Winn Dixie today, and the check mark really bothers me. Bothers me so much I wrote a blog about it. I need either: the short part of the check mark to not be 10 times as fat as the long part, or to be longer. One of the two. Please Mr. Dixie.

"Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can. No need for greed or hunger, A brotherhood of man...
Imagine all the people, sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one"

David Archuleta is my favorite American Idol contestant this season... partly because of the songs he chooses.

We're in this together.

I have found that some of Satan's biggest tools in our lives are shame and feeling alone. Some of our deepest struggles, we feel alone in. It's easy to look at others and decide they seemingly have it together. But if we rid ourselves of pride, of insecurities, so that we are real, so that we could start something different in our community, so that darkness would no longer exist, so that deep struggles would be brought to the light, in order for freedom to be had, in order for authentic community to exist, in order for us to grasp the truthfulness of this statement:
"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man." 1 Corinthians 10:13
There is freedom in knowing that we are not alone in our battles. If there had been no Rehab in the story of Joshua, how different would the story be? Those individuals we are surrounded by are present for a reason. We are all in this together.


"For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:8

Am I the only one that has a difficult time completely trusting these words? Doesn't this call me to have full confidence that if I ask, I will receive? If these people that I care about so much are seeking answers and seeking to discover who the Lord is, they WILL find. I often times find myself doubting this. But today, I find myself trusting.

My heart.

I cannot look at this picture without smiling. I can't look at any pictures of my students without smiling. I hope there is something that does the same thing to you. Before this summer, yes, I loved people... but never like this. If you haven't found that place makes your heart beat a little faster when you remember it, find it. My heart aches for these kids. Yes, it hurts at times, but I wouldn't trade the feeling for anything.

"and nations that do not know you will hasten you..." Isaiah 55:5
