the sun has come back!
after the thunderstorms of the early part of the week, the glorious sunshine has returned. yay! I love sun.
Now, don't get me wrong. I don't mean that it's necessarily warm outside. I only mean that it is sunny. At least that gives the illusion of warm! I would rather it be cool and sunny than warm and cloudy, frankly. After all, part of the reason I moved down here, to the South (said with a slightly haughty southern drawl...) is the weather, which HAS, by default, to be better than Chicago. Not that I don't love it "up north", but really--the weather was a little ridiculous.
anyway, I'm still working on being open minded about "praise" music and whatnot. So far I think I'm doing well. I'm sort of easing into it with some music about God, much of which reminds me of pop music but some of which i can see in a worship/prayer context. We'll see how long this whole open-minded thing lasts. I hope a while; after all you do deal with all kinds of people and the different ways people worship and pray in the church at large! I find myself actually liking some of this. Having said that, I still love contemporary hymnody from the world church, and sometimes i even love the traditional hymns.
anyway, i'm supposed to be working on a paper here--and i have hebrew in 20 minutes, probably with a quiz. Maybe I'll abandon the paper temporarily and memorize some vocab. yes....
