study sunday

I finally have a little bit of time to do some study.... But somehow I ended up here! The book I need to read is sitting right in front of me. All I have to do is pick it up and start reading it.

Ok.. Here's the deal.. I'll stuff about till 11:00 am (in 15 mins time) then I will get cracking. Sound good?


Not many very exciting things have happened lately. A few weeks ago we all went up to the observatory here and checked out the massive telescope.. It was soooooo cool. When it was time to go Casey and I headed down a narrow flight of stairs. Actually it was quite a few flights of stairs. The acoustics in there were really nice so I started to sing 'Come Thou Fount' as we went and Casey joined in in harmony. It sounded very cool. I want to go back there with a bunch of people and sing something else.

Wow.. 5 minutes left. 10 minutes = not that much.

I miss traveling. There was always something really interesting to see.. It was always unpredictable and exciting. Being here IS interesting, but it also feels like a hard slog, there is all this stuff thats got to be done - ALL the time. Then again -- It is good to see how other people benefit from the work getting done. Like when you've worked together to collect and organise unrelated things and turned it into something, when that work is done and it actually happens and people come and they enjoy it and get something out of it. That feels good.

It's like cooking something! Bit of this, bit of that, put it together and BAM! Melting Moments.. Mmmm.

Just another nice reminder that the world doesn't revolve around me.

Oops it's 11:04!

When tongues fall out of skulls
When flesh drops off like old clothes, threadbare and old – warn too long.
When watches stop ticking
Even before then – when time marches on unnoticed because life is all sleeping, sedation and numbness.
When the need to have our own 'knowing' is swallowed by being known.
When childish speech and feeling and thought have no further significance.
Then there is only those outlasting qualities
Faith, Hope and Love
And the greatest is Love.

I don't know if it's the caffeine in my blood, that I filled out the St Albans Folk festival volunteer form and got pepped up or whether I got to drink Chai Tea this morning for the first time in ages.. But I feel excited about life today! I'm not usually un-excited.. But today I just feel zippy!

Actually I think it is MOSTLY due to spending some good time with Jesus this morning! Sitting out on the front verandah, drinking Coffee and eating Vegemite toast, reading Mathew. It seemed to me like the air was different, somehow grass was interesting.. The weariness and heavyness i'd been experiencing in the last few days wasn't bothering me so much. I just came away thinking about how amazing Jesus is.. Like something in my head was going 'Isn't he amazing??? I mean.. Really! Come on! He's incredible!' over and over and around and under and through my brain. It was really cool :)

I practically skipped down the street!

Anyway have to go
