Today on January 1st, 2018, we were blessed with one of the most beautiful full moons I’ve ever seen. I ran out onto the dock of Log Boom Park in Kenmore, Washington to try and capture the glory of the moonrise and light.

Looking down the dock to the south. This is at the northern end of Lake Washington, which divides Seattle and the Eastside.

Phalacrocoracidae, commonly known as cormorants. There were also many ducks.

The color seemed unusual for this time of year, such a rich and buttery yellow-orange.

And once again, the roosting birds, who seemed completely unfazed by the frigid temperature.

Tonight while driving home I heard this song and was struck by its message. Let the past go… you don’t live there anymore. Walk into the new life being given to you.

I suspect that I’m not the only person who’ll be encouraged by this tonight. In Christ you are a new creation, a child of the Most High, and He wants His best for you.

You are good enough because of His grace. What happened before doesn’t matter. What you’ve done is forgiven. What matters now is that you trust Him enough to start to live again… and step into the amazing future He’s been planning for you since before you were born.

Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. –C.S. Lewis

New video from the Aaron English Band. Good stuff. Great imagery/symbolism/’80s references. I want it to last about three times as long though, and/or develop into a mashup with some Falco Star Wars reference… love it.

There needs to be a 17 minute long version to do true justice to the creativity here. There’s so much good stuff going on behind the guitars and drums… some of it so deliciously retro. (Also, Alan Rickman’s doppelganger is back.)

From the official Aaron English email blast: x-wing drummer is an ode to the utopian future we were promised back in the 20th century. we’re still waiting for it to arrive. dude, where’s my flying car?

Jetsons' Flying Car

Go, Aaron, go…

Do you ever feel like a lost cause?

When we consider the totality of our selfishness, our patterns of wrong choices, our use of our gifts and talents for the wrong reasons, it’s easy to feel like God could never use us or forgive us.

Perhaps you have conflict hidden deep inside, or you find yourself so mired in deception that you don’t know how you’ll ever find a way out. You feel… damned. Like it’s too late, and you’ve had your chance. (more…)
