Nobody likes a vegetarian!!!

25 10 2008

So, last weekend I accidentally didn’t eat any meat.  I didn’t even realize it unitl Saturday was pretty much over.  I thought to myself, “For breakfast I had eggs, for lunch we went to a vegetarian cafe, and for dinner I had cheese pizza.  I’m totally a vegetarian today!!”  Although it was kind of a joke, I was kind of challenged by the possibility of being a veg.  The more I thought about it, the more it excited me.

It has been a week now, and I haven’t eaten any meat.  Although I feel un-American and definitely un-Texan, I think I can totally do this!  It makes things a bit easier since Birge is already a veg and has tested  what works and what doesn’t.  She was basically my guinea pig.  I think it will actually be more healthy for me as well since I basically never ate vegetables before.



It actually makes life a bit easier too because now we can just make one meal for both of us!!

Why Blurred Gaze??

23 10 2008

First, if you know me at all, you are probably thinking this is another feeble attempt by me to start another blog.  You may be right.  I make no promises anymore.  I have learned to under-promise and over-deliver through the years and I will do that now.

Why Blurred Gaze? – I feel like God has me in a very specific situation in life right now.  Currently, God has me serving him in Long Beach, CA and that’s awesome.  I never thought my life would look like this though.  I expected to “have it all together”.

Enter God…I’m learning that my plan for my life is not necessarily God’s plan for my life…enter flexibility.  I felt like I had a vision on where I should be in life by now, but God shook that out of me.  My vision became hazy.  So hazy that I can barely see what is standing right in front of me.

Honestly, it’s kind of exciting.  I am learning to trust in God more than ever before and letting him truly lead my life.  After all, the more I try to look deep into the future the more I find that I have a Blurred Gaze.
