Today I woke up with Vertigo. I have had problems for  a little while but not this bad. My allergies cause my sinuses not to drain causing but ears to get thrown off. You would think getting to spin around would be fun.. but it is not. Matthew went on a run so I decided one more blog entry today wouldn't hurt.
Anyways. On a different topic, over the weekend we watched two good movies. The first one we watched was Made in Dagenham'. It's about the women's rights movement in Great Britain. The second one was a documentary called 'God Grew Tired of Us' it is on Sudanese refugees who came to America. This movie made me cry. It was convicting and challenging. It was definitely a reminder that God has called us to help people.  It made me feel so small and inadequate yet called to something bigger than myself. I know married couples are not the only ones who go through this but how to you not get stuck in the mundane? How do you not get soaked into the American Dream and live selflessly serving God. Our church has so many opportunities to serve but even the options can get overwhelming. I have read the book Radical but still I'll take any advice you'll give me. I don't want to waste my life on myself. We have to DO something.
God, help us to live for your name sake alone.
'By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.'1 john 3:16-18
(& on a simple note: here are some pretty pictures just because they're pretty)

sayy! wesley and i have been thinking, talking and praying a lot about this! we're currently reading radical together so that could be why... but it's becoming more and more urgent with everyday not to live for ourselves.

it is definitely a struggle every day. i find myself dreaming about houses and things we could have in the future and then i'm like... does that have anything to do with God?
