fresh

because everyone deserves a new beginning.

highlights

sometimes the highlight of my day is lunch! since i have time now (and sleep >4 hours a night) i tend to make lunch instead of buying food. prominent meals have included:

– portabella mushroom risotto & slow braised chicken thigh
– garlic tilapia with steamed broccoli and homemade red potato mash
– homemade turkey sausage, zucchini and baby portabella tomato sauce baked with whole wheat penne
– chinese cabbage & chicken stir fry with rice

ahhhh. all of these with breakfast (usually oatmeal with soy milk and granola, or a toasted sourdough english muffin with peanut butter) makes for such happy moments at work :)

perspectives

Tonight was the first (techncially second since I missed the first) class of Perspectives in World Missions. It’s a class recommended to me at debrief after Thailand, and something I happened to see on a church bulletin in my hopping madness to community. I’m taking it through for credit through Trinity Evangelical in Deerfield; thus, score one for the m.theo and zero for the m.eng.

I’m reminded more humbling that everything I do, save, even experience on this side of heaven is in transit and that things are simply things. For someone who spent the majority of this past summer in airports and airplanes, as a person I’m constantly in motion, moving from one to the next. Tonight, as we spent hours pouring over scripture and stott and piper, there was stillness, volume, fruitition — this is real. and it brings joy to this sojourner through the streets of los angeles.
