What I’m Loving Wednesday

Today, amidst a frantically busy schedule, I pause to consider the things I am thankful for right at this very moment.

I am loving The Genesis Record by Henry Morris. I recently mentioned that I am moving deeper and deeper into a study of the first book of the Bible, and this is one of the tremendous resources helping me do so. One of my dear friends let me borrow this massive commentary about Genesis, and it is just incredible. It is written with a highly scientific and theological emphasis and gives so much detail, explanation, and background to some of the Bible’s hardest questions, all the while showing Genesis to be literally and historically accurate throughout. I’m only in Chapter 2, and I am already enthralled.


I am loving that I currently hold the first place title in my NFL Pick Em Pool league. We’re 7 weeks in, and I’m going strong. Now I’ve just got to maintain for the duration of the season, and that’s certainly easier said than done. Just in case I fall from the top, though, I wanted to make sure to document this amazing feat.


I am loving the Avett Brothers, though this sentiment isn’t regulated strictly to this week; I continually feel this way. They are on my mind today in particular because I get to see them this weekend in Nashville, and I am SO excited! From the moment I first heard their music, Avett instantly became one of my favorite bands, and the more of their discography I discover, the more I like them. Exceptionally talented fellows, they are.


And lastly, I am loving that tonight is another baseball night. Game 6 of the World Series, and the Cardinals better be in it to win it. Everything is riding on tonight’s performance, so fingers crossed that they bring their best to the field. Game starts at 7:05pm.

What about you, what are you loving this week?

What I’m Loving Wednesday

This morning, I am loving Brett Dennen, likely because I saw him play at Minglewood last night, and it reminded me of how much I enjoy his folky, playful vibe. I’m unfamiliar with his newest album, but he played some songs off Hope for the Hopeless that I really like, so I was pleased. He didn’t play my favorite, nor did he sing the one I’m posting below, but the show was still great fun.



Speaking of Minglewood, I am loving Lucero’s recent announcement that they are playing a show there on December 22. Despite my lack of enthusiasm for and inability to fully embrace their new addition of brass instruments, I couldn’t possibly miss a show right here in my own stomping grounds. I’m still a Lucero fan through and through, and so I’ll be there, being particularly thankful when they bust out songs from their older albums. Added bonus – Amy LaVere is opening for them. Merry Christmas to me!

I am loving that the St. Louis Cardinals are playing in Game 1 of the World Series tonight. So much so, that I’m willing to skip my kickball game to watch. A few weeks ago, we weren’t even sure if they’d get the wild card spot, and now they are battling it out for the national title. What fun! The boyfriend is a huge fan, and I’m a supportive girlfriend, so GO CARDS GO!

And finally, I’m loving the space heater that is tucked under my desk and blowing hot air on my feet this very minute. I seriously use this thing year round, and my work happiness pretty much depends on it. In the past, I worked for a company that didn’t allow space heaters, and looking back, I think that was one of the deciding factors in my leaving for bigger and better things. Now, I’m settled in a lovely office that allows personal comforts such as warming devices, and I am grateful for it. With the cold weather that is currently blanketing the city, I’d be a downright mess without a constant source of direct heat. It’s the little things. Here I am at work, space heater on full blast:
