This and That and Chit Chat

Holaaa.  It's September.  Mmm I'm so ready for fall.  And not just because I'm getting kind of tired of sweating bullets outside at work.  But because I love the cool, crisp weather, drinking tea outside in the breeze, pumpkin bread, sweatshirts and leggings, Thanksgiving, and boots.
                Lately, I've really been basking in the beauty of Creation.  Like it's so amazing and detailed.  I really enjoy it.  I spend a lot of time outdoors now.  I like reading in my backyard.  Although, I find it harder to focus because I tend to look around a lot.  And then I get all tense when I see a wasp (Gotta be ready to make a mad dash for the sliding glass door if necessary). 
                I like jammin outside too.  I just bought a ukulele.  It's pretty awesome.  The new Avett Brother's album is pretty awesome too.  Really awesome actually.  You know when you here a song that you love and you're like "OHHHH YEAHHHH." Yeah, that's what it's like.  I'm so excited about it because they've been one of my favorites for years now.  They're music has been a great inspiration to my own. 
                So, on a deeper note,  chew on this.  Has there ever been something in your life that has held you down?  That has enslaved you, even when you were free to run at any given time?  Surrender.  Surrender your heart to God.  Give it Him.  He will set you free.  He will give you peace.  Jump up from the clasp of your oppressors and thrive where God wants you.  Run free.  Dance. Sing. Shout.  You're free.  Life can be hard.  But when you are following God, life CAN NOT defeat you.  So let go and enjoy freedom. :)
