It’s been weird around here without Adam. It’s always weird when one of the birds is away from the nest. There have been outings, movies, and maybe a small tornado. Funny days.
I am reading a book. It’s called Beautiful Outlaw. Look it up, you will not be sorry. First of all…the title. It speaks volumes. And then, there are the guts of the book. The words that I have been reading caused me to search deeper, to take a closer look, at the Jesus that I have been loving, to question how I (who think I am so funny ) could have missed his sense of humor. What ? In fact, he was playful. How did I miss it in the scriptures ? I know how, I was hell bent on GETTING it, and of course, passing it on to my kids, my little disciples. Wrong. Again. I missed the fact that the most important thing for me to pass on is HIS HUMANITY.
How did I miss HIS lonliness ? Me ? I suffer from it often, and I didn’t recognize it in the words of my Jesus. His humanity people. See it. My lonliness is okay, I am not defined by it, and I am learning from it. And I know that Jesus UNDERSTANDS it. He knows how I feel.
Okay, that is all. A quick little update on life.
