The Piano Guys


So we got to see The Piano Guys in concert tonight. They were awesome. Some thoughts...

Expression through music. 
These guys are 100% expressive when they play. They are as genuinely expressive as any performer of music can be. Through happy/major passages there is a look of pure joy and pleasure on Steve's face. During descending minor passages a furrowed brow crosses his face. They are so connected to the music that their very performance of the music is lyrical. 
I so often disconnect myself from the music in my analytical way. I try to understand it, I try to calculate how and why it is making me feel a certain way. It has been years since I just put on an album and listened to it from front to back just for the sake of enjoying music. 
I wonder if I do the same thing with Christianity. Do I spend so much time trying to figure out God that I forget to just enjoy Him? 
I find myself challenged to soak in music for art's sake and to soak in God just for relationship's sake. 

"Every good idea is mine. Every bad one is yours."
Steve said he heard God say this to him when he was worried that he would eventually run out of creative ideas for making videos and songs. What a humbling reminder that every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights. My ideas pale in comparison to His. He authors everything good.

Threatened By a Baby

My sister always dreamed of having a pet tiger. She is a cat person and so the thought of having a tiger as a pet was always intriguing for her. I figured that was a pretty cool idea but didn't think it was very feasible. Come to find out, there are a bunch of stories out there of people who adopted a tiger as a baby, nursed it, trained it, and now have a house pet that is capable of ripping their head off without much effort.

If you came across a full grown tiger on the Savana you would likely find that to be worrisome. After all, the Savana is the Tiger's natural habitat; you are on his turf and you look a lot like lunch. You know it, and he knows it. And your chances of survival are somewhere between slim and none.

But if you came across a tiger cub you would likely not feel threatened at all. At worst this little tiger cub is going to gnaw on your leg or claw your shin but it would just be irritating and wouldn't even draw blood.

This leads me to conclude that the reaso…

Xmas parties

When you throw two Christmas parties over the course of 2 days to two different music groups at church, and you only get a .231 appearance rate....is it really worth it?

Rent to Own Garages of Greatness

I've recently come into a great partnership. I have often wanted a place to store my tools and keep my car dry on rainy days. But I haven't figured out a good way to pay for such an expensive proposition. Of course I could build one, but I recently found that there is a company here in Ohio who builds these garages for a small mark-up and will deliver it ready to use.

Cincy Sheds offers these garages for sale or in a rent-to-own option. You pay 36 payments on a monthly basis of somewhere around $500 and you own the garage at the end of everything.

Why pay to have storage space at some location at a big storage facility when you can have a storage unit brought to your house? And these look classy too!
