sidewalk restaurant sign


(photo: sidewalk cafe sign on the way to lunch yesterday)

In between sessions at the Moda Center, we had lunch on Portland’s only floating restaurant.

In the midst of simply trying to find sustenance and some downtime (similar to halftime or intermission) we walked looking for a place to do both.

This sign would have been easy to overlook.

Like literally everything else in life.

O Holy Night

Take your pick. David Archuleta or Carrie Underwood. Yes, we are busy, and that’s the mountain I’m trying to overcome.

David and Carrie, without American Idol, would be singing these songs in their Church and we’d probably never had heard their incredible voices.

Advent is a time for me to be joyful for the coming of our Lord and Savior. I usually “wake up” from my busy schedule and it’s January. I sadly think to myself, “How’d that happen?”

Too much desire to be Joyful this year. Desire is the secret ingredient in many recipes. And Joy.
