First on its "daily sample of items recommended for you" was:
We Don't Need to Whisper ~ Angels & Airwaves (Audio CD)
Recommended because you purchased Walking Off the Buzz I recognized the artist because their song "True Love" is on one of the mixes I downloaded from mjules.
It also recommended me Fumbling Towards Ecstasy ~ Sarah McLachlan (Audio CD) "because you said you owned 1200 Curfews [Indigo Girls] and more"
And even more weirdly, Fallen ~ Evanescence (Audio CD) "because you said you owned Puddle Dive [Ani DiFranco] and more"
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before our God to prepare the ways, to give knowledge of salvation to God's people by the forgiveness of sins. By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." -Luke 1:76-79
I remembered the sermon Tiffany preached on that passage, on "go before out God to prepare the ways," which of course connects with the part in Molly's sermon this past Sunday on "Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight."
Don't be tempted by the shiny apple Don't you eat of a bitter fruit Hunger only for a taste of justice Hunger only for a world of truth 'Cause all that you have is your soul
Recently I asked my mom (on behalf of a friend) for suggestions of a prayer to swap out for the Hail Mary when praying the rosary.
She suggested the Jesus Prayer ("Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner" -- or just, "Lord have mercy"). She said, "It serves the same purpose of distracting your cognitive brain so you experience the presence of God."
I'm really bad at just being in the presence (similarly: listening for God).
