Think you’re having a bad day? It could be worse. Did you know that some noses know no pleasure? Cacosmia is a disorder in which a person can only detect disgusting scents. For these poor souls even our lineup smells terrible. 👃💩☠️
I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend! Had a great time this weekend freezing my toesies off camping in God’s beautiful creation down at the gorge. Sometimes I’m lucky enough to appreciate the landscape while I’m there. But this time I wasn’t as much appreciative of the natural landscape as I was of the internal landscape of brotherhood, connecting with other men in the great outdoors. Getting to share a drink around the campfire on top of a giant rock face, really breaks down barriers and helps us to be able to connect so much quicker than in our fast paced, get all you can while you can society. I only knew 1 out of the four guys I was camping with but we got to know each other better in one night than most people do in months. Praise the Lord for the landscape of nature and people.

Yesterday I sat in church at Hillsong in the city that never sleeps and the message from Pastor Josh Kimes was about finding rest in a restless place. In order to grow your spiritual relationship with God and earthly relationships with others you have to be able to refuel yourself first. Even God took a day to rest and declared that it was good, and He desires that goodness for us too. In this busy season of life with finals, holidays, travels, and new jobs, I encourage you to take a moment to slow down and truly rest. Whether that’s with a bath, a nap, a massage, breaking open a book you never finished, or simply doing nothing at all, be intentional about creating some margin in your life to refuel, breathe, and take care of yourself— it is good.
