Most Bizarre


I decided I want to post a poem every now and then, maybe on Wednesdays, so I’m already a day off. The following is I think the weirdest poem I have – that truly came from a dream that Mama had a few years ago. I poked at it a bit today. I’ll show this one to just get it all out there that I’m not normal. The poem is nothing like my usual stuff, but every time I read it, it interests me.

Another thing: Colin and Leslie came over last night, and we talked about death, and I’ve never been so encouraged. Imagine that. Colin said that often we talk about Christ’s death like the physical part of it was the real trauma. He talked about what must have happened in the spirit world. Think Perfection taking on humanity’s history of sin, disease, guilt, addiction, pain, anything that came from the fall. All the while, Jesus must have been separated from the Father. I was able to worship Him this morning thinking about our true freedom from what He conquered. Any comments about Christ’s being separated from the Father? It’s blowing my mind.

Do we break the NO RELIGION OR POLITICS rule here, or what? It may be in my blood.

Another thing: My favorite verses today are Psalm 126: 5-6. Israel was celebrating His goodness and said it felt like a dream. They had believed in this promise for their homecoming. “Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.”

On to mothering: Isaac used the Bramlett’s window seal to put his first true notch on the Tough Guy Belt. His notches are also my notches. I got a notch on my Don’t Freak Out Belt (not at the Bramletts, by the way, but at the blood). It will make a cool scar.

Amber you are so encouraging to me your insights on the Word and your honesty on parenting boys to become men of God has truly blessed me especially with being a new mom and struggling to keep balance in my life. I occasionally see you in passing when I'm leaving from first service and your coming in, but I wanted you to know that God has used you through your blog to bless me

Thank you. I feel like a loose canon, so that really means a lot.

Nice shiner!

Amber, I'm elated that Craig got to spend time with you and your family recently. He couldn't stop talking about Isaac. He told me a little bit about Seth's trip as well. Wish I could've have been there for the deep subjects. Hopefully, I'll get to see your 3 beautiful boys sometime soon.

(Oh and thanks for tip on Rocks in my Dryer, I'll definitely check it out...)

Miss you guys~
