Go, go, go see this movie! It's a great story. The soundtrack is quite wonderful as well. I am looking forward to exploring music from some new sounds on there...including this band:
the moldy peaches

We sent Jess off to Nepal, which was very happysad. He seems to be settling in and doing pretty well so far.

I've been enjoying reading The Chronicles of Narnia, and am currently smitten with the noble unicorn Jewel, from The Last Battle, who says to the King: "If Aslan gave me my choice I would choose no other life than the life I have had and no other death than the one we go to."

Talking with a friend last night, she pointed out this great passage when we were talking about trust: "1 Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land that the LORD promised on oath to your forefathers. 2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. 3 He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. 4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. 5 Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you." Deut. 8:1-5

This first month of the year I have been reflecting on manna, and the means by which God provides in ways we could never expect. If you need a good kick in the pants, read through Exodus and Deuteronomy.

It's amazing what we learn about ourselves in the desert...especially about where we find our contentment.
