This morning I woke up with that feeling that TODAY IS GOING TO BE A GOOD DAY.
And I'll tell you what: it has been awesome. But I'm blogging early because come 7pm, Sabbath is starting, and I have a plan. I'm kicking the night off with my good friend, Morgan, and we are going to intentionally start our Sabbath together--which means (for me): no internet, no phone (except emergency calls), and no blogging. Thus, there is some anticipation for the next 24 hours to be restful and restorative.
BUT! The awesome moments.
First, I received a text this morning from a girl who borrowed Who Is This Man?, the book by John Ortberg I was raving about. And you know what? She said in the last couple of days she's read five chapters and she loves it. She thinks everyone should read this book because people don't really understand Jesus.
THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! This book makes you fall in love with Jesus. If you're skeptical, fine. Pick it up and prove me wrong. But I think you'll be captivated.
Later, I went to Fellowship at Brown, and we discussed how immeasurable God is. There was this poem, though, and it spoke to me. It might be from a hymn. Just behold these words:
Could we with ink the ocean fill
and were the skies of parchment made,
were every stalk on earth a quill,
and every man a scribe by trade;
to write the love of God above
would drain the ocean dry;
nor could the scroll contain the whole
though stretched from sky to sky.
F. Lehman 1917
I will leave you with that thought. Have a beautiful weekend!
