New glasses

It’s funny.  After walking so long in the fog–metaphorically speaking–I feel like I have been given a new pair of glasses.

When I was seven years old, I was taken to the eye doctor, and I got my first pair of glasses.  I will never forget marvelling of everything that I thought I could see, that I couldn’t.  I distinctly remember seeing the leaves on trees.  To those of you with good eyes, you probably think I’m insane.  But everytime I get a new prescription, I am always thrilled to see leaves.  Maybe I’m just a simple woman.

Tonight I got a sneak peak into worship practice at Buckhead Church in Atlanta–thanks to loswhit. Back in the day, I was the overhead chick at my church. I love to worship, but I can’t carry a tune in a bucket. Nor can I play an instrument. So I considered my technical savvy my instrument. I loved worship practice…just being around talented people, watching how the service would come together. Tonight, as I got my sneak peak of worship practice, a part of me that I hadn’t seen in a while kind of perked up, if you will.

Today has been one of those days where things are starting to awaken again.  Desires that I had buried.  Dreams that I thought were just that…dreams. 

So, I guess the addage it’s darkest before the dawn is true.  The last couple of weeks have been exceptionally bleak.  But it seems that the sun is rising…and that good things, God things are coming.
