This post doesn't really have a lot to it, except that I wanted to make note that I feel like things are about to start shifting with my family, friends, church, work, everything. Shifting in a good way. I can't describe why I feel this way or what exactly the shift will entail, but I feel like the ground beneath me is gently sliding in a new direction.

I am excited. What's next?

On another random side note, I am so excited that it is the Holiday season. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love the music, movies, gift giving, decorations, snow, even the chaos at the stores (I know, it's a little weird, but don't judge!) This year in particular I am in awe of incarnation of Jesus. The fact that the savior of ALL mankind wrapped himself in our human flesh and form as a little bundle just like everyone else is astounding. I want this awe to continue all the time.

The other day I was singing carols in the car and I got to What Child is This and almost started crying. Thinking about Jesus Christ who came to this earth FULLY man and experienced all the same things that I have experienced (if not to a higher degree). Yet, he was FULLY God, never sinned and stood in my place to receive my judgment on the cross. It blows my mind to say the least. This again is one of those things I don't think I will ever understand on this earth. And if that is what helps me keep the awe I am okay with that.


  1. shifting - like my bookshelves, according to God's word for me from Josh...

    I was eating my lunch today and flipped on the TV to the Christian station and they were doing a dramatic presentation of John 17. It was so moving. Of course I've read it many times over, but somehow it "hit" and I was brought to tears that Jesus would pray for me....

  2. This shifting will be fun. Kinda like surfing. I am excited too. And Patty, that is great that you thought of the shifting.

    I am excited about and ready to ride some waves of the Spirit.
