Life is Amazing
Just a quick little post to say that I am undeniably happy. I must be like...I don't know, what do they call it when you can spiral down into a pit really quickly, but can also get high and happy really easily? Whatever it is, I'm that. I've been up and down quite a number of times already today, but I can definitely say this is as high as I've been all day, and it makes me very happy. I just feel joyful.
We just had a Bible study, and you know what? God is pretty amazing. His bigness and amazing-ness, and the fact that we are all His Creations, and that He loves every one of us and wants every one of us to love Him always astounds me. God is good.
Life is big. I've just had a bizarre and totally cool, yet sort of expected event happen, and I'm kind of thrilled. It's scary but exciting. It seems every day my little dreams just get a bit bigger. I think I'm the kind of person where I have these huge dreams that don't seem very important to many people, but will end up being radically life-changing for a whole ton of people. Plus, tiny houses in the woods are stupendously cool, and that is truly my dream.
Picture this: A tiny little house in the woods, mostly solar-powered, one bedroom, a lovely little kitchen, a wood stove and a big, big piano in the corner. Passive-solar heated, so big windows to the south, maybe a cob floor, and outside those windows, deciduous trees and the biggest vegetable garden you've ever lain eyes on. Space for people to visit me and camp out. Space for additions. Space for little children that will eventually pop up to run around and be free and learn and experience life. People of all walks of life being inspired to sing and make music, and to share humanity together. People being encouraged in their faith in God, their walk, and their life. Through sunshine and rain, hard work, laughter, tears, frustration, and teamwork, building a life that is worthwhile. I'll do that any day.
And if my tiny-come-big dreams don't turn out, I can sit down at the piano and play them, and in that way, I can share every word with the whole word, and they will all be able to understand!!! I can sing them with all of my soul, and pour every emotion out in the vibrations of the sound, floating across the breeze.
Somehow. Someday. Somewhere. There is a time and place for whatever life may bring.
