A Coffee and a Thought (or Two) Friday
Jeff and I watched the movie Whiplash last night with some friends and, oh boy, it was intense. I was feeling a bit drained when it was all said and done, and I was not even the student being ground through the gears by a (pardon my French) hellacious teacher.
Wow … Just wow.
In more of a wow/whee combination, one of my favourite bands – Mumford & Sons – has a new album slated for a May release. This is a bit of a big deal as the group announced in 2013 they were taking a long hiatus after two studio albums and incredibly long tour stints. The new album is titled Wilder Mind and if this video clip is any indication, it will have a more electric sound in comparison to Sigh No More and Babel.
Speaking of new tunes, Matt Maher has a new album – Saints and Sinners – coming out on March 17th. You can give the track Because He Lives (Amen) a listen here if you’d like. (I’d suggest cranking with a good set of speakers or headphones.)
I find myself wanting God to write me a detailed To Do list for my life. That’s not asking too much, right? Well, it is when it stalls you into inaction as it has for me. My mom (a wise woman, y’all, and I’m not just saying that because she has been known to read this blog (Hi, Mom!)) said sometimes God probably just wants us to get out there and do stuff. It’s not a verbatim quote, but it’s the strong gist of it. And it’s a good thing to remember, because it’s not like I’m without any indication whatsoever as to what I can be doing. (Micah 6:8 so, so often comes to mind.)
Have a happy Friday, everyone.
