Moving- Transitions and the ebb and flow!
OK.... well as you can see, i'm trying to pack my brain somewhere- because i keep loosing my mind in this process!!! Things are all floateeeeeee, swirling and a bit of a head mash! There are some didactic things that need to be sorted through with the move.... such as debating with the buyers - inspection issues and pending appraisal. All of which has my hypervigilant stress levels at a all time high.... never mind the thought of renting till we buy in the Austin area. I'm excited and yet frustrated- My friend Derek loves good choreography - but i guess in a birthing process of sorts, that can basically be thrown out the window (without throwing the baby out with the proverbial bath water)- Feels like a bit of a hurricane and the landscape is drastically changing. I love good storms....(if you've read my other post on the beach)- However- i really could use seeing Jesus walking on the water towards my heart boat. Wondering if Angels could actually help pack!
The exciting parts of my soul and spirit ebb and flow with thoughts of being around fellowship, music, art, new landscapes, and perhaps Derek will let me drive his HumV! Part of the vision is to create a healing space, where things can flow.... on deeper and wider levels. I know we carry parts of some amazing things here in NC- Morningstar, A Place For The Heart- Helser's space, Jonathan and Melissa's worship- deep waters. Some really cool friends- all are those that came in hard, hot and fast on the tarmac of God's runway. Some of the amazing emergent co-hort group here.... that have blessed my heart and head like crazy....
But HIS Kingdom is Higher, Wider, Longer and Deeper than we could ever hope to imagine- so i know there is more coming. Just transitions are filled with such flux and seemingly instability... I'm learning to trust Again and Again- despite my fickle and cynical heart.
Oh, i borrowed that pic Andrew.... just cuz it seems fitting.... in a cheeky sorta way.
5-7They broke into Jason's house, thinking that Paul and Silas were there. When they couldn't find them, they collared Jason and his friends instead and dragged them before the city fathers, yelling hysterically, "These people are out to destroy the world, and now they've shown up on our doorstep, attacking everything we hold dear! And Jason is hiding them, these traitors and turncoats who say Jesus is king and Caesar is nothing!"
Well i kinda hope our reputation doesn't hold such drama...LOL
but i don't mind the testimony as to His goodness and radical way HE changes hearts!!!
Please keep us in Prayer ... we need it.
xo shalom & ahava!!!!!
