I'm just chatty

What? Three blogs in three days? "That's crazy!" you say. Well it's true! :-)

I suppose the reason I've blogged so much this week is simply because it helps me get all my ducks in a row (even the ducks I don't write about!) when I'm so busy that my head seems to be spinning. I'm the type of person who needs to write things out or say them aloud to keep things organized and logical. I think God made us that way on purpose. Conversation is the bread that keeps our minds alive and well, if you think about it, and the conversation that will feed us eternally is the one we have with God.

My constant need to communicate, my need to "get things out of my system" comes from my need for God. I can't remember the exact verse, but in the Old Testament it says that God puts eternity in every man's heart. In the same way, He puts urges in our hearts that He can use to draw us closer to Him. I need to talk about the good things and the bad to be able to work through them and understand their purposes, and God made me that way so I could learn to lean on Him through prayer. It's amazing how He works. :-)

We went to see The Karate Kid this evening, and I loved it! Jaden Smith is such a little picture of his father. He has a lot of the same little mannerisms that make Will Smith who he is. Those similarities are no accident. He got that way because he's around his dad all the time. In the same way, the more time one spends with God, the more one starts to act like Him and see the world through His eyes. Without constant prayer and study, that's impossible. I think that's why God made me so that I have to talk about everything. As a flawed human, I stink at praying sometimes, just like everyone else, but when I'm not busy being stubborn, God can use my habits for His glory. I'm in awe.

It's been quite a while...

I hadn't realized how long it's been since I last blogged! In the past month I've been working and keeping busy with a lot of extra projects. I am officially exhausted, but most of it has been worth it!

Shaun and I got to go see Blessthefall, Demon Hunter, and As I Lay Dying last month! BTF and DH are two of my all-time fave bands, and they definitely didn't disappoint! I wish I could see them again. I also got to meet Beau Bokan, the lead singer of Blessthefall :)

We finally got to see our friend Jose's band, Boy Wonder! They were really good! I miss Jose. A lot.

This week we got to see A Skylit Drive, which is another one of our fave bands! Normally when I go to a concert I get shoved around half the time and I rarely have a clear view of the stage, but for the last half of the ASD set I got to stand really close to the stage AND I had an uninterrupted view. It was exciting! Really, this month might have been entirely too exciting. :)

In other news, I'm working on a new magazine! It's good to be writing again. It's been kind of hard to get back in the groove though. I suppose it may take a while! It's a blessing to get to use my talents again.

Aaaaaand...I can't even remember what else I've done this month. So that's all for now!
