A Few Things For Which I’m Thankful

11282013-tumblr_mwxv33HG091qz6f9yo1_500

Modern: When we thought we could control everything. Then we thought everything we controlled was better than all that was out of our control.

After Modern: Turns out we control very little.

But God is still in control—and He tends toward giving good gifts (though my friends living in the Bible—Abraham, Job and Paul, among others—developed lots of nuanced language about what constitutes “good”).

I’m grateful today for much, like Mrs. Kirkistan and the Youth Culture making their way out of the household of Kirkistan and into/through the world. And that’s just for starters.

And I’m grateful modernity has been sent packing.

And I’m glad to get back to the certainty of uncertainty and the life-giving power of chasing tomorrow’s dinner.
