or… I’ll give as much as you can take.
Peter Mayer has a wonderful song called Holy Now with this marvelous lyric,
“The challenge is not to find a miracle, but to find where there isn’t one.”
I have some big changes afoot. while it’s not spot-on for my situation (which is quite exciting), I want to share this quote with you:
“Beginning empty handed and alone frightens the best of men. It also speaks volumes of just how sure they are that God is with them.”
many people that have known me, walk with me today, and will see me later in life might find this surprising, but I am an introvert. I can be socially awkward. I don’t often relate directly with people. while I love them; all of them, I find myself often standing outside looking in at their lives. I do feel this enables me to help them, and this is something I am called to do with my life’s current vocation. call me a Larry, if you must. is that a Servants heart?
however, much of that is because I can stand in awe of the magic in life, the laughter of friends, the amazing intimacy of feelings that are stirred by my daughters, the inseparability and oneness I share with my wife.
I am thankful, so thankful for all of it. if there have been challenges and disappointments along the way (this will include the events in Colorado, always), I cherish them for guiding me to this place and time.
for all of you who have touched my life, I thank you, and if in some way I have served you, for that too I am thankful.
I hope to see you soon. I sure hope you see me. I want to recognize the face of my Fathers, both earthly and heavenly. inspiration should have no bounds.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
