Moon River.

This beautiful duet is worthy of resurrecting the blog...
Goodness, my eyes fill with tears whenever I hear any version of this song. In fact, it used to be my phone ringtone, but I got teary anytime my phone rang, so I had to change it.  Anyway, there is just something about the words and the melody that are so tender. And, the term "huckleberry friend" draws such a cute picture of two friends or a married couple sharing a simple life together on the banks of a river.  
This is the "Moon River" I picture in my head. By, Russell Hogger.
I want this painting hanging in my home to remind me of the consistent pace of life I want to live with Jesus, even in the midst of fast paced Los Angeles. 



So, my life here in L.A. is about to take a minor change in the way of school (transferring to a program at UCLA!) and I have really let it take my heart to a very restless place. I like to know what the next month, 6 months, and year are going to look like for the most part. {Isn't it interesting that God has given me a desire to work in an industry that does not work that way?} And, right now I feel like I don't even really know life will in a sense look like after the next two weeks. But, I read a quote this morning that really brought peace to my soul...

"The future is in God's hands, not yours. God will rule it accordingly to your need. But if you seek to forecast it in your own wisdom, you will gain nothing but anxiety and anticipation of inevitable trouble. Try only to make use of each day; each day brings its own good and evil, and sometimes what seems evil becomes good if we leave it to God, and do not forestall (God) with our impatience."
