'Significant' number of deaths in New Orleans
Katrina kills at least 55 in Mississippi
Gunman kills 4 near church, then self

That's just 3 of the headlines from this morning....there is tragedy in this world, there is chaos and just lostness.....and those of us NOT LOST are called to live in the being found.....live in the LOVE of God....

Wow, does that sound ?? And yet maybe that's why I can't make a point I make it too much about and worry too much about what it sounds like??

Just in a conversation with a gal, we spoke about God about Jesus being enough and YES I believe that and that is a comfort to me but IF I live contemplatively without interacting with people I'm not sure I will grow and that is pure CRAP Father.....because interacting with people is wayyyy too painful and risky and then I hear RISK EVERYTHING and I'm not sure I can....
So what if I don't GROW...well without growth something is stagnant and dead isn't it???....and I don't want to be stagnant....

So what's all this rambling about???
RISK EVERYTHING......

Maybe there's somekind of a connection I am supposed to see if I wasn't so stubborn......

Risk Everything!...That is something I'm going to chew on!

It isn't ours anyway. There is only one thing that we own, and it was given to us to do with as we please:

"Don't be tempted by the shiny apple
Don't you eat of a bitter fruit
Hunger only for a taste of justice
Hunger only for a world of truth
'Cause all that you have is your soul"
-- Tracy Chapman

All that we have is our soul.

Everything else is just a loan.
