funny days. beautiful words.

It’s been weird around here without Adam.  It’s always weird when one of the birds is away from the nest.  There have been outings, movies, and maybe a small tornado. Funny days.

I am reading a book.  It’s called Beautiful Outlaw.  Look it up, you will not be sorry. First of all…the title. It speaks volumes. And then, there are the guts of the book. The words that I have been reading caused me to search deeper, to take a closer look,  at the Jesus that I have been loving, to question how I  (who think I am so funny ) could have missed his sense of humor. What ? In fact, he was playful. How did I miss it in the scriptures ? I know how, I was hell bent on GETTING it, and of course, passing it on to my kids, my little disciples.  Wrong. Again. I missed the fact that the most important thing for me to pass on is HIS HUMANITY.

How did I miss HIS lonliness ? Me ? I suffer from it often, and I didn’t recognize it in the words of my Jesus. His humanity people. See it. My lonliness is okay, I am not defined by it, and I am learning from it. And I know that Jesus UNDERSTANDS it. He knows how I feel.

Okay, that is all. A quick little update on life.
