It is an insistent grace that draws us to the edge and beckons us to surrender safe territory and enter our enormity.

I was wondering where you had gotten to!

Mr. Adorable! A little overwhelmed at the moment...
(still enjoying your blog even though I haven't commented in a while! Hugs my friend!)

Zanne, what does that quote mean to you (if you can blog it)?

Oops Sassy, guess I'm being obtuse again, huh?

I think the quote just captures how I'm feeling right now. Going off to seminary and leaving behind all my security constructs into an unknown place, leaves me feeling like I'm standing on the edge. I do feel like I'm surrendering all that makes me feel safe for something uncertain and enormous.

I don't think I'm unique in this. I think that whenever anyone is being shepherded along into the life that God has for them, things will be asked of them that are uncomfortable because they are unfamiliar and even undefined. And now that I think about it, I rather suspect that the dreams we dream for ourselves are probably pretty shabby in comparison to God's dreams for us. But God's dreams are wild and so beyond for us that given the choice, I think we are more inclined to choose our own dreams.

Don't mean to ramble, just have a lot on my mind right now. Thanks for drawing me out! Love & hugs dear friend!

I do feel like I'm surrendering all that makes me feel safe for something uncertain and enormous. Isn't this what faith is really all about?

You have an enormous inner strength to follow your dream, your calling. I not only love you as a friend, but I admire you as a person.

Ramble away anytime, sweets... preferably in a rocker on the deck w/us and a good drink. :) Love & Hugs to you, too!

Beautiful Quote.
I can not at the moment surrender safe territory for myself.
You are very brave & strong! I'm excited for your adventure.
Good luck & God bless!

I'm supposed to tell you you're tagged to do a meme by posting a comment to your blog. TAG! You're it!!

Schwartzenegger insists the victims of the 2007 Southern California firestorm residing at Jack Murphy Stadium are happy.
First he calls Tonight Show host Jay Leno an "idiot". Then he drops this bomb.
If it were Gray Davis the gods would have their media attack him mercilessly for these mistakes. Together they may be enough to cost any other politician his career. But not Arnold Schwartzenegger.
They say he says makes suspect comments all the time, and they are all buried. And it is because they have BIG plans for him::::He is a tool who will be used to accomplish historical evil for the gods.

They say there is a sense of "unease" at the State Capital, like he doesn't belong there. It is because he doesn't. He is not American. Sadly this is an issue that is too readily discounted:::
He is not from the United States. His loyalties lie with a country that was the enemy of the United States a mere 65 years ago.
Just as we witnessed with Clinton in 1992 expect blacks to register and vote en masse for Schwartzenegger as well, a clue and a red flag.

Just as we haven't seen any more of that "Everybody is happy." idiocy from the Preditor so do we no longer hear anything of the possibility a firefighter started one if not more of these SoCal fires, buried forever.
Weight training, promotion of pharmeceuticals, desensitizing "guy flicks" all prove the name "Preditor" is warranted.
