I Was About to Punch Jason Mraz In the Face

February 9, 2012

It’s like I’m living in Minnesota over here, you guys. It’s been so cold this week! We have nine billion feet of snow and it never melts, it just freezes into deadly ice paths of painful death for your Fuggs (fake Uggs) to traverse. Just as an example. (Also, I don’t think Uggs (fake or genuine) are actually in style anymore, but guess whose feet were cuddly warm yesterday? Exactly.) Look at my poor, snow-laden car the other day.

Any.Hoos. Aren’t blogs that talk about the weather the very best and most entertaining and worth your time?!

I feel very disappointed in myself as a human awesome person because apparently on Parenthood the other night, Crosby was wearing a Dillon Panthers shirt. Like the Dillon Panthers of Friday Night Lights. As the show’s biggest fan, I should not miss things like this!

This week has been so busy, and I’ve had super long days. I’m worn out. For example, yesterday morning I was having the most annoying dream in which an alarm clock was going off by playing Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours over and over again. In my dream, my friend and I tried to turn it off and we threw it on the ground and we unplugged it, but it would not stop playing that song. Finally I rolled over and woke up and realized it was the alarm on my phone. It was 7:08. I had been having that dream for eight whole annoying minutes and never woken up. (And yes, I’m Yours is my alarm ring for some odd reason. I’ve apparently decided to make that song something that makes me very angry and sad and cranky all at once. Which it was kind of already doing before I made it my alarm.)

I just started a new class at my church. It’s basically related to commissioning believers into ministry. Our pastor reminded us of Luke 10 when Jesus sent out 72 people to preach the gospel. Their mission was to preach the kingdom — they did amazing things like cast out demons and heal the sick. The 72 returned to Jesus joyful because even demons submitted to them in the name of Jesus. But Jesus reminded them that our joy is not what we do — it’s not in our works – but in God’s grace. They were to rejoice because their names were written in heaven. I love it. Jesus sends us out — we are to act, and share the gospel, and serve because we have a mission. But the joy doesn’t come in our accomplishments, but in the recognition that God has shown us such grace — he’s invited us into his kingdom and eternity with him. Sweet goodness.

You guys, only two days left to enter the giveaway! Get on it right now.

OK, bye.

    Ah, except here in MN it’s a balmy 40 degrees and I can’t even remember the last time it snowed 🙂 Maybe CO is becoming the new MN?? 🙂
