a beautiful world

we live in a beautiful world...yeah we do, yeah we do.

as i listen to coldplay, i am reminded of this simple truth. i do live in a beautiful world. one that God created perfectly. it is filled with beautiful people that i can learn and grow from. i sit here trying to understand the process of photosynthesis so that i can adequately teach 5th graders the mystery of plant life. and once again, i'm reminded of how beautiful and complex our world is. we are woven together in an intricate pattern, designed to be a reflector of God's glory.

so, thank you to coldplay for this beautiful reminder.

i have watched more movies in the past five days, than i have all summer. it's been wonderful. i have a new-found appreciation for the "chick-flick" and cried along with tom hanks in cast away. this week off has been restful and productive. i have had ample time to think about the summer, as well the next months ahead of me.

i began my blogging career talking about my life that was in transition. although i do believe i will always be in some form of transition, it's a great feeling to know i can settle in to life here at redcloud for the time being. and...God is good, all the time. this i will always know.
