the vine

So, today was my first Sunday off in many moons. Leslie has been asking me to go to her church, The Vine, with her for a long while and I decided to seize the day and go. My amazing friend Ryan is the youth pastor there and I have several friends that attend. So I mean what the heck right?

I have never been to a service like that. Ever. It was the coolest thing in the world. I met a ton of people right off the bat and they are all awesome! The pastor, Owen, was so personable... most pastors are, but not all of them are genuine (I hate to say) and he was just so happy to be there and it was like the Holy Spirit was pulsing all around him. It was so cool you guys.

You can read more about them on their website, the link is above. There was so much singing! There was a full band, comprised of members, there were roosters that were sling shots with scripture zipped in. There was dancing... literally, dancing. I got to dance for God this morning. There was an actor that portrayed Christ, and talked to us like we were his best friend. He told us stories, made us laugh, made us cry, and inspired us.

I like to be inspired. I love to be inspired because of God.
I was created to create. I'm embracing that as much as possible.

If you are every in Waynesville and feel the need for a great church full of life, love, and community I will recommend this one to you.

One down side to this is of course, that it was not my church. I'm thinking about making it my church. I'm just at Long's every Sunday basically. In the nursery with the little ones playing, making music, and just loving through Christ. That is one of the most beautiful things in my life. I got a little homesick for that this morning.


Now, if you have heard of William Fitzsimmons then you have earned 5 points from me. If you have not then go to and type his name into the music page. Listen to "Passion Play", close your eyes and let the song take you where it will.

Also, Andy McKee. him and his song "Drifting". Again close your eyes and enjoy.

That is all I have for now. Other than the time change stinks. I like sleep, it keeps me pretty and taking an hour away from me is not okay. Blah Blah.
