Happy birthday to this best friend of a brother! I miss this smile and your laugh and the way you are always down for an adventure (especially if that adventure includes coffee or tacos.) I just wish I could be there to celebrate your big 21st on the 21st with you. See you soon, Connor. Love you. (Also. When did you get so crazy smart and handsome? Dude.)
Eclipse starts in 10 minutes! We're in the path of totality in Georgetown, South Carolina. Where are you watching from?
Newsies at the Muny. I've seen this show on Broadway in New York and on tour in Hollywood. I loved this St Louis production in this venue. The entire cast was brilliant and it was fascinating seeing this set design and how the turntable was integrated into the choreography. (Also, I saw @tessgrady as Natalie in Next to Normal at the La Mirada Performing Arts Theatre back in 2013 and was blown away by her then. I loved getting to see her in this very different role and kill it. Well done! 😊)
But he said to me “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. - 2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV) // Been meditating on this verse lately as I face some sin issues I've ignored for too long. I feel broken. Weak. This weekend I'm so thankful for a God who finds glory through my weakness and uses my shortcomings to reveal his glorious power and grace.
Gone fishing 🎣
These hot, humid days aren't my favorite, but if I have a choice, I'll always choose to spend them enjoying the sunshine and ocean breeze. Thankfully, Charleston has both. 😊
