Our task this week was to look back at what we have done so far -- what we have written and what we have wondered. I love rereading journals so this was fun. And if you can believe it, I have grown. Things have happened in a mere three months. Astonishing! In our looking back, we were scouting for a theme statement. For me, this is as strange as Pastor Bonnie's knitting. I'm thinking about it as a mantra -- something to remind myself in good times and not bad times. We're supposed to adorn our home and office with these words as a reminder to ourselves. So, my theme statement is:
Emerging from chaos, I will create.
I'm supposed to have Scriptural reminders too -- which is an obvious reference to Creation and Ezekiel's dry bones. I'm loving that passage right now -- even if the dude was super duper repetitive in his writing. And the Lord said. And I heard the Lord say. Yeah. Maybe we need it to be that clear. Maybe that's why I'm supposed to choose a theme song to cheer me along in this reminder. Of course, I have no idea what that might be. I'm hoping for a song that I can turn on in my car with all of the windows down singing at the top of my lungs without a care in the world. Of course, chicks with guitars are required. I would love to use one of Stacey Midge's songs. I can't figure out how to download them though. Dumb -- but true. So, I'm thinking about:
Dar Williams -- You're Aging Well
Tracy Chapman -- Change
Indigo Girls -- The Wood
Mary Chapin Carpenter -- I Take My Chances
Truth be told. I'm looking for suggestions. Any ideas?
