The result of doing things that are not the best idea…

So here’s the thing:

I got a couple new CDs yesterday and decided to listen to them on my drive this morning. As it happened, I wasn’t going to the office but to the main location–a 40± mile drive. And these were worship CDs, right, so it was definitely good stuff.

Let me pause to say that I am one of those people who cry when moved by the spirit.

Okay, so I was nearing my destination when the atmosphere changed outside. It was beautiful at home but the closer I got to campus the more overcast it became, so much so that I asked myself out loud if there was a fire burning that I had missed hearing about.

At the same time, the atmosphere in my car changed. The song “Praise to the Lord”, a personal fave, came on. The presentation was fantastic and, you guessed it, I started crying. At 70 in the slow lane. The Spirit was there and it was awe-inspiring.

So the result of doing something that was not the best idea–in this case, driving while crying–did not result in some catastrophe but rather I was energized for my day and took time to admire the beauty that is SoCal on my drive times.

To quote our university president, Dr. Wallace: Yay, God.

    like it…
    okay now how did you change the font color and size.

    • I didn’t change the font and size–the font you see is what came with the theme I chose. That’s why I said you may need to play around until you find something you like. What you’ve already typed in won’t disappear, it will just be updated to match the theme you select. It will continue to change as you play around.
