Is it already late August?

This month has gone by extremely fast for me. If I wasn't in MI at family reunions or in KY "retreating" with 64 of my fellow friends, I was working or taking pictures or hanging out with out of town guests and trying to find down time. You can tell its "fall" again. Usually its temperature that reminds of us of the changing seasons, this year its how busy I become.
Everything that had stopped for the summer has started again. I feel more efficient with my time when things are busy. Everything has to be a little more intentional.
Fall tends to find me more reflective. I'm hoping to get away from Nashvegas and spend time w/ Jesus somewhere. Where is the question yet to be answered.
Today I just wanted to shut my brain off. (btw, this can be easily done when sitting on hold for an ungodly amount of time while playing spider solitare on your computer) I want to read a fun book, or find a tv show that will help me escape the concerns on my heart. But, as you can see, I find myself here...writing in complete random circles, babbling on about nothing and everything.
"This is the message of the cross, that we can be free...to lay all our burdens down at the foot of the tree....the cross was the shame of the world but the glory of God. For Jesus, you conquered sin...and you gave us new life...You set me free when I come to the cross. Poured out your blood for I was broken and lost. There I was healed and you covered my sin....its there you saved me. This is the message of the cross..."
