totally love these lost images… i love lost, still.  its still my happy place… and funnily the things i watch on tv now are connected to lost.  person of interest.  once upon a time.  fringe.   its all lost.  i adore the visuals too – and these pictures are just *sigh* so nice!  funny yes i know, that something that isnt real,  is so a part of my life. but it is.  part of the fabric of who i am.

 

and as always.  i love Jesus with all i am and all my heart and all my soul and all my days. For His glory and the building of His kingdom and the rescue of the lost.

"sometimes we girls think if we don’t make instant progress, then real change isn’t coming. but that’s not so. there is a beautiful reality called imperfect progress. the day i realized the glorious hope of this kind of imperfect change is the day i gave myself permission to believe i really could be different!" ~ lysa terkerust / unglued

 

 

*** i couldn’t help it… its been a LOST kind of day today… i love LOST

Lost 5

1.  i have watched every episode.  at least twice.   Lost is my happy place.  if i have some down time and am sick or been going hard out one of the things i like to do is rewatch.

2.  i brought the Lost soundtrack, Season 5 and some of Season 6.  love the music!  takes me right there!  i have a whole playlist of relaxingish Lost music on my nano for when i’m not sleeping well.

3.  a Lost song is my ringtone on my phone.  and my text tone is JACK YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING (ben).  it used to be the smoke monster.  and also i had Ben instructing the staff room on how to make coffee and change the filter.

4.  i have 2 Lost tshirts.  and i live in New Zealand so you know they’ve come a long way…

5.  my desktop picture is… yip, Lost.

6.  i have to include a Lost reference in my message when i preach.  seriously i do.  i have done this for about 2 years now.  i can usually come up with a Lost analogy at the drop of a hat…  so much so that in a comp we’re doing with our young adults they have to include a LOST reference to get more points.  yip, i infected them all.

7. Lost has changed my language.  whenever someone talks about smoke, candidates, lists, islands, constants, time, letting go, whatever happened happened, others… well… you get me.  Lost references have changed my language.

8.  i can name most of the characters and actors.  and episode names.  though i might be a bit rusty on the episode names now.

9.  my daughters name is evangeline… not totally just because of the actress, but yeah, it was an influence.

10.  Jesus is my constant.  “I have but one passion: It is He, it is He alone.” Count Nicolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf (though i am sure if Lost was on when he was around he’d say Lost was on the list…)

lost 9

but seriously… my life must express MORE obsession with Jesus and people must know i LOVE Jesus more than i love Lost.  as i’ve converted people into Lost fans… so i should be in the process of conversion with people unto salvation.   I have one passion, and it is He.  but Lost is so up there on my list.

fav characters: ben (i know!), faraday, hurley, desmond

fav episodes: the constant, the incident, man behind the curtain, flashes before your eyes, all of S6

text tone:  Jack you dont know what you’re doing!

ring tone from my husband: desmond contacting penny

general ring tone:  song from Lost

obsessed: yes i am

totally love this.  everyday is an opportunity for us to demonstrate the love and grace of God and for us to be a living testimony for Him.  we live to know Him and make Him known.

evangeline’s year group have been looking at different jobs over this past term.  they had a pilot, ice cream maker, postie, nurse, doctor and others come and visit.  and our pastor, her best friends dad, also came along and shared what he did for his job.   our pastor, peter, and his family and our family are all best friends.  caleb and their daughter are 2 weeks apart in ages and evangeline and their youngest are 6 weeks apart.  we so love their family.  and so when evangeline grows up she wants to be a pastor.  because she loves peter.  i did tell her that really one should become a pastor because they love JESUS… but its also awesome that she has such an excellent role model in what it is to love and serve God.  and i love that they are dreaming of the future…

http://mylostmoment.net/ – just discovered this today.  i could waste lots of time reading it… is peoples favourite parts of LOST… parts they connected with.  yeah i know, i am such a geek…  and my own favourite moment… well i have LOTS… but i do love the start of S3… the burnt muffins.  the new face.  the realization The Others live in houses.  Benjamin Linus.  the plane.  i loved how the directors would so change our perception of where the show was going in a instant.  there are so many other moments:  juliet dying… juliet bashing the bomb… charlie and NOT PENNYS BOAT… jack and smokeys confrontation on the hill on the way to the light… discovering locke was in a wheelchair… jacks “i’ll do it”… jacob and the MIBs convo on the beach… sawyer and the crew joining darma… illana saying to ben “i’ll have you”… ben confronting jacob… the temple people… jin and sun… jin and sun falling in love again… all the redemption moments… ahhh i loved it…  so many moments…

 

housegroup 2011 v1

seeing people step out and step up and live who they’re called to be… this is why i am a housegroup leader… this is why i love young adults… (oh and i think that is me living my who i am called to be!)

 

lost-the-final-season-lost-9141259-1280-1024

a year ago it was the finale of Lost.  i had watched the show right from the start.  major freak fan.  i even mentioned it in every preach i had done for the last 2 years – an intentional thing that began as unintentional but then became the “thing” (along with gun noises… yes, gun noises… pow pow)  the LOST final came with perfect timing by God.  strange as that may sounds.  it came at an incredibly painful time in ministry and on the night, before the show, something out of the blue and kinda yuck happened.  so i got to watch Lost and cry and release tension and emotion and enjoy my favourite programme.  perfect timing.  i say that LOST is my happy place (after Jesus of course!) and there are many times when i just need to stop and breathe and chillax.  i watch LOST in those moments.  i’m a bit of a wierdo, i often read a book or do something while watching TV.  not so with LOST.  LOST is the only programme for a long time i’ve actually focused on and got connected to.  i totally love LOST. still.  ps today i am wearing my LOST tshirt from threadless tees.  yip, i’m that much of a geek

 

 

podcast-756566

podcasts!  i love preaching.  i’ve been listening to Mark Driscoll, Steven Furtick, Perry Noble, Francis Chan and Matt Chandler this week.  good stuff.  praying it wont be just words in my ears but fire to my heart and food to my soul.

tumblr_lfof6lMkh31qc5zyno1_500

this picture.  bliss.  this is what i kinda sometimes feel like in the presence of God.  total peace.  His presence is life to my life.

 

 

and as always.  i love Jesus with all i am and all my heart and all my soul and all my days. For His glory and the building of His kingdom and the rescue of the lost.

When we’re living our lives with intentional gratitude we’re fixing our eyes upon Jesus and agreeing YES He is good and YES He is faithful and YES He is Lord and YES He is the one who loves us!  Gratitude is an expression of faith.

lost 2

Lost.  got to watch the finale of S6 (and the whole show) with my besties on New Years Eve.  in july we holidayd with them and they began watching the series.  since then they’ve powered through all seasons, all episodes, and so what a way to end the year, lost.

 

and as always.  i love Jesus with all i am and all my heart and all my soul and all my days. For His glory and the building of His kingdom and the rescue of the lost.

 

this year is ending, today.  its the last day of twenty ten. what a year.

so what progress have i made this year… and what am i adventuring into for the next?

 

twenty ten was the year:

of baking… it was an official resolution to learn how to bake this year.  my daughter has food allergies so baking is an essential way to get treats into her.  and everyone loves home baking right.  up till this year i could bake maybe 2 things.   and they worked, most times.  so i resolved to get over my baking funk and bake my heart out and learn new things.  i’m proud to say that even this week i tackled a new recipe and won.

of podcasts and preaching… i got given a mp3 last year for christmas so this was the year i filled my heart with preaching.  new discoveries were steven furtick, mark driscoll, judah smith (and his youth pastors) and bill johnson.

at least no one died this year… yes seriously that was my statement for housegroup this year.  dont get me wrong – it was an exceptional year with many highs but also a very low part that then affected much of the peeps and the year following.  but the year before one of my guys had been killed in a car accident, so i can say, at least no one died this year.  this year in housegroup we strengthened the core group and added a few newbies… we talked about consecration, honesty, confession, hearing from God and then finished the year with our eyes fixed firmly on jesus with a series called Jesus is.  we also ate copious amounts of desert, chinese, and had our first ever nacho night.  all good

the weekender and habakkuk… the weekender is our churches’ young adults retreat – and i was service leading it and God spoke to me through habakkuk – about Refocusing, Reviving and Refiring… was an amazing life defining weekend.  God so moved.  and i am so grateful!  He is awesome.  plus there was amazing lasagne.  all good.

that i mc’d a wedding for the first time… and was bridesmaid at another wedding… both super fun, though somewhat nervous occasions

that i was involved in 4 baptisms… i love baptisms!  and i love people getting baptised!

that our mums group did alpha, and one of our mainly music mums got saved.  its so glorious watching her grow!  so love her and what God is doing in her life.  and i loved alpha.  stole many of the presenters illustrations – he’s a great communicator and this is God’s gift in him to the world.  its beautiful watch someone in their calling.  even on a video.

my daughter started school… she’s five.  she’s delightful.  she loves school though still misses me and so holds my hand firmly as we walk to her class. its a whole new adventure for her.

P1220534

P1220022

my daughter started school… yes, you can read that twice… which means that from 9 till 3 i have time.  time to have a cleaner house.  sometimes.  time to write and read and pray.  time to walk and bake.  time for coffee dates with friends.

that God stirred my heart for impossibilities… when i look back at the messages i have preached the underlying current of most of them – and the in your face content for at least half of them is that nothing is impossible for God.  its a fresh new zing in my heart that i’m excited to see where it does and what God does!

i ran the light party… a halloween alternative at our church that needed someone to stand up and say, yip i’ll do it and make it happen… so when there is usually that gap tony and i usually put our hands up… and it was so much fun.  esp with the new lights at church.  and all the willing people who helped so enthusiastically.

i was intentionally grateful… at the start of the year i began my 1000 things listings, things i was grateful for.  small things, big things, spiritual things, family things, relational things, material things.  whatever and whenever.  its good to be intentionally grateful, because then you recognize how blest your life really is, and that creates a happiness that you can wear on your face and pass on to others!

that LOST finished… just had to include that… i love lost… and you’ll laugh, tonight, new years eve, we’re going round to friends to watch the final episodes.  we went on holiday with these wonderful friends in july and took along lost season 1 on dvd with the intention of converting them.  and they were.  so they’ve spent the last 5 months watching all the episodes and finish tonight.  what a glorious way to end the year!  oh and in case you didnt know. the title of this post, its a lost quote.

that my son joined the Samoan cultural group… in case you didnt know.  we’re white.  as pakeha as you get.  but he joined the Samoa cultural group at school and we thought it was most awesome.  esp as for the first 5-6 years of his life he was incredibly shy and change reluctant.  amazing how God can grow a child.  he had 2 concert performances and it was awesome.  yes i leaked.  i love my little Samoan boy.  he’s also joined the bmx club so that is an adventure in itself!

P1220561

P1220507

i’m so grateful to God for my family and my church and my pastors and His wonderful grace in my life. 

all glory to Him for His great works to me and in me and through me!

pol 1

listening to: been hooked into a new band after catching a song of theirs on LIFE FM called The Letter Black.  their song BELIEVE is my fav.  also been listening to music by Gateway worship – particularly love the song RUNNING.  always draws me nearer to God, i want to stop and worship whenever i hear the song.  also love the newish song by JESUS CULTURE called SHOW ME YOUR GLORY, so catches my heart!

 

on the box: watched Prince of persia the other day with my husband.  my description is that it is one of those movies to watch with someone you love on a saturday night over chocolate and a bag of chips.  its more about the people you’re with than the movie.  weak acting.  awesome action.

 

reading:  just finished a nora roberts book called High Noon.  hostage crisis investigator drama.  good.  i like novels, i like stories.  thats my downtime.

 

coming up: this weekend we have the Light Party, which is a halloween alternative type thing at our church.  we run it as an outreach and give flyers to the school and run it for free.  this year shes my baby and so this week will be busy with details and doing.

 

preaching:  preaching at youth on the 14thish on evangelism and the lost and also at young adults late november.

 

blest: i got a new computer.  amazing.  i dont know much technical stuff but its cool.  and it has sound.  and a flat screen.  stoked.  such a blessing!

 

in the word:  in numbers, job, psalms, corinthians, isaiah.  really enjoying the practicality of how to live a natural supernatural life in corinthians and the historical power of God in numbers…

 

i miss:  Lost

 

eaten:  i ate the yummiest butter chicken last night – but i think it gave me funny dreams.  i love naan bread!

 

been thinking:  lots about not giving into temptation (as you’ll know if you’ve read my blog lately) and more probably about a generation rising that will live to honour God in radical outstanding ways, that will know their God and be strong and do exploits.  its so in tension with the overwelming experience and knowledge of the grace of God – the two go hand in hand, grace and obedience.  love and living out.  i long to live holy because He loves me so and gave His life for me.

 

enjoying: the sunshine and the dry washing and the warmth and the way it makes people feel happier

 

challenged: to learn how to accept compliments without wanting to deflect attention away from myself…

 

joined: a bmx club.  well caleb has.  meets friday nights and is a real family focused group for kids.  love watching caleb stretch himself.  looking forward to making some friends and shinning some light.  but loving watching caleb get into it!

 

rejoicing: at the love and grace of God poured out upon us.  wow.

yeah i like that
