Fireflies and Songs

I have written about Sara Groves in this space before. She is easily in my top five favorite musicians, if not the top three. Her music never fails to elicit some deep-seated emotion in me.

The two big ones so far are Fireflies and Songs and It's Me.

Her brand new album, Fireflies and Songs, is set to be released on November 17, 2009. For 10 bucks you can have instant gratification and download them now. Please note this link will probably break after November 17.

The Maker of Noses

The title of this post is a direct rip-off of Rich Mullins' song, "The Maker of Noses." You can google it to see the fantastic words.

I have been in a meeting all morning and my mind has drifted from the tasks at hand to looking at the noses of people sitting around me.

When you start looking at a person's nose by itself, as an appendage to a face, there seems to be only one conclusion.

Noses are weird.

What does this tell us about the Maker of noses? He has a sense of humor, he is pleased with his creation, we should be thankful for the ability to smell bread. What else?
