Blogging is a Moving Meditation.

BLOGGING as a MOVING MEDITATION: Liminality's thin passage untangles as it weaves, fits in the ineffable nooks and crannies of my heart's prayer wall, like the cracks in pavement, mile markers on the road, windblown whimsical napkin poems written in eyeliner.

Austin City Limit's and a few tid bits.......







Things are shifting with cooler weather (at least in early mornings and evenings)- still getting up there during the day....
Got to go to Austin City Limits Festival on Sunday with Derek and Amy. (which was such a blessing) Felt like after 4.5 months being here, we were coming out of the big transition... and now, instead of getting our "feet wet"- we were standing on some seriously dusty field. NO JOKE, i think i inhaled at least a few miles of top soil in the form of dust. People were looking like masked bandits with the bandanna's around their mouths. LOL i never really did understand why they did that in Westerns... so "clocked that"- for future endeavours -
I really enjoyed myself, despite the "dust bowl" in the hot end of summer haze. We got to hear some pretty cool music... One of the best was MIKE FERRIS........ who has a set of PIPES that will basically knock you out of your seat. Blues/Rock/Soul hardly describes the intensity and passion that he caries. Derek and i got to speak with him briefly, - and he has such a tender and humble heart, yet when he's performing, it's got Power and Authority on it! Really rare combo.... It felt like a revival with out the usual religious cheesy on it. Very refreshing blast of water- to the point of in the Spirit it felt like a fire hose (that usually take a few to even wield) came on full blast and hosed us all down in HIM! YA GOTTA CHECK OUT THE TUNES FOLKS- seriously!

On other fronts, John and Caroline came in yesterday, and we will be hosting for about a month as they get planted here. They are really precious with sights set on Kingdom stuff. We had a thick time of sharing - complete with cheese, vino, chocolate cake.... fruits and veggies and some good pasta last night. It was rich and full.......

Graham Cooke will be here next weekend -- I LOVE his stuff....... He's doing a mini conference at Church of the Hills, which is only a stones throw away from our door. So Brian and Whitney are coming in...... and looks like we'll have a small group going to hear him Friday, Sat and Sunday. Graham came in a few years ago, in NC, when Jonathan Helser's 1st CD "the Awakenings" was birthed. Graham has one of those Daddy heart Prophetic Anointing - that to me ... has such a rich teaching gift, with prophetic insight and wisdom. I've always walked away from his teaching and ministering with new levels of freedom and permission to walk further.... ( i'm really stoked about it) Looking forward to blogging on it later.
