Sweet Spirit, Strong Soul
Well, Monday...we meet again. And with that, hey everyone. I've been excited to begin this new series "Carry On Wayward Son" with all of you this week. I hope you don't miss a day. Being a baseball fan, I'm not the biggest football fan among us, but I keep up with my Baylor Bears and Dallas Cowboys. (Hopefully I didn't just lose too many of you with that truth.) But during Saturday's Baylor/TCU game, I heard the announcer say about a Baylor player, "He's got a sweet spirit but a strong soul." Wow. Guys, had he been sitting here with me as I type this sentence he could not have summarized our upcoming week any better. Sweet spirit, strong soul.
And our theme for the week comes from an unlikely song; Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas. Do you know it? Look up 'wayward' in the dictionary and synonyms like willful, stubborn, headstrong, disobedient, undisciplined, unruly, wild, unmanageable, difficult, rebellious, defiant and impossible make the list. Any wayward sons and daughters reading this today? Well, a wayward son is writing it.
I tell you, few lyrics of any song carry as good of a picture of grace - even as it relates to our temporary health. And over the next few days I'm going to try to navigate us through them. Hopefully, whatever you're facing, something you read this week will help your sweet spirit and strong soul carry on.
"Carry on my wayward son There'll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don't you cry no more."
