Libraries and Disco Worship

     Can I just say how wonderful it was to wake up at 9am to the sound of rain and birds chirping?  I wish I could wake up to those sounds every day.  I am filled with a bunch of random thoughts this morning (oh wait, it's actually the afternoon now...time flies!), and where better to put them down in words than on my wonderful blog.  So, to my favorite 25 followers, enjoy my random Saturday thoughts!

Thought #1:
     I haven't been to the library in forever.  I was just reading a post on The Pioneer Woman about all the books a family got on their bi-monthly trip and I was filled with a teeny, tiny bit of jealousy about how cool the books were.  Did you know that there are whole books on style?  I didn't.  But now I'm tempted to go check one out from my local library...I should probably finish some of the 5+ books I'm reading first.  Oh, and my heart melted when I saw the books their son checked out.  All of David Macaulay's books are amazing.  I have one (Castle, I think).

Thought #2:
     Phil Wickham led worship at my church on Tuesday night.  I won't lie to you and say that I like contemporary Christian music...I wasn't super excited to go see him play. 
I was blown away.
First of all, he is an amazing artist.  One of the best guitarists I've ever heard live.  Secondly, God's presence was so obvious in the room that night.  If you've never had the chance to worship with ~1,000 other like-minded people, you're really missing out. 
     But on to what I wanted to mention.  I bought his CD, Heaven and Earth, and although it's a good album, I was definitely disappointed.  I should have known that there was no way it would live up to his live performance.  Anyways, there is one song that I didn't like at all, but now I love it for all of it's 70's vibe and kitchy feel.  Listen through till about the middle, and you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Thought #3:
     Ok, last random thought, that's really more of a question.  I've heard of some great photo apps for the iPhone, but none for the Android market.  Anyone know of a great photo app for Android?  If you help me find one you'll forever be known as "the person who lifted Abby's photo's out of boring obscurity."  Maybe.  ;]

Happy Saturday, everyone!

No Shame: Saturday morning (oops, afternoon) pre-shower drinking coffee from a Star Trek: TNG mug.

  1. I love the library!

    I didn't like the Elements at first either, but obviously they grew on me. They are so functional! But mine is an automatic.
