Yesterday was such a glorious day. Perfect weather. It was even more glorious because I was finished at work in time to have an hour of daylight at Radnor Lake. Despite bringing my ipod with me, I never put the ear buds in, and I almost strolled. I spent ten minutes or more sitting on a bench, watching the sunset. I thought and prayed and breathed. And oddly I left the lake feeling restless. That restlessness makes me both want more still quiet time and not want it.
And "Restless" is the name of my current favorite Needtobreathe song, and one that they did not sing last night at their concert. If you don't know the band, check them out at this link. You might know them from their song "More Time" that was on the P.S. I Love You soundtrack. I like their lyrics, sound, and energy. I like that the ticket to the concert only cost $12 and that we could have stood next to the stage if we'd really wanted to. We even chatted with the lead singer afterwards. For those of you in Georgia--they're playing in Atlanta Friday night at Smith's Olde Bar.
p.s. I'm grateful for wisdom. Although I'm by no means wise, I've learned a lot in the past few years and am constantly appreciating how much more joy-filled and relatively drama-free my life is. So perhaps there is an upside to aging:) and definitely an upside to seeking God's will instead of my own.
