Music Break: Birdy

Well guys, it's a beans and rice life in grad school. I'll be honest with you, this has not been an easy transition for me. I have a young-adult entitlement about being out of college. My habits reflect that I think I should be able to buy fancy coffees and go out to eat and go travel to nearby places.

But some people never have that. This is my context, beans, rice, and all. This is where I need to thrive.

To be brief, I think I am learning. Slowly. There are aspects of faith that have sat dormant in the last year that I am finally picking up to reexamine. There are some areas where I've thrown the baby out with the bathwater. There are areas I desperately need to learn how to love - and to be loved. But all of that is a work in progress. I know for now that God loves me relentlessly.

I love this cover of The Naked And Famous by Birdy. This girl has great pipes, and she's only 17. She adds an emotional weight to a song that is phenomenal for an artist, especially of her age. (When she was only 14, she did an impressive cover of Bon Iver's Skinny Love. Check it out too!)

Best all, I'll write soon.
