On Hiatus, 50 Ways to Talk to God, and the Post Where I Strongly Encourage You to Buy and Repeatedly Listen to Audrey Assad’s Newest Album, Fortunate Fall

I’ve decided to take an indefinite hiatus from updating this blog… at least from now until sometime after the seasons of Advent and Christmas (and maybe longer).

In the meantime, here are some ideas for anyone who has happened to find and has routinely followed and shared this blog.

  1. Use this time to try these 50 Ways to Talk to God from Meg Hunter-Kilmer of Held by His Pierced Hands.
  2. Reread (and share!) the 128 previous posts on this blog from the past year or so.
  3. Buy and listen to Audrey Assad’s Fortunate Fall album over and over and over and just keep doing that until the inspired music and lyrics become part of the air you breathe and part of the oxygen that gives life to every cell in your body. Or something like that.
    • So yeah, I think it’s a pretty good album.
    • And in the past I’ve posted videos to 3 songs from this album along with their complete lyrics HERE, HERE, and HERE.

More Lyrics:

Your rod and Your staff are a strange mercy – – – In a world where I’m not yet home.” —from Lead Me On by Audrey Assad on Fortunate Fall

Your goodness and mercy shall follow me – – – All my life – – – I will trust in Your promise. —from Good To Me by Audrey Assad on Fortunate Fall

And I’m not even going to link to those two songs. Just get the album, and just keep listening to it from start to finish.

Wrapping this post up…

And just for the fun of it (because it’s not on her album), below is a video of Audrey Assad’s cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water. And here is her short blog post about Simon and Garfunkel and this song.

Also, since you’re reading her blog now anyway, check out Audrey Assad’s two most recent (and lengthier) posts on happiness: A Few Thoughts on True Happiness (from which I once posted a quote) and also The Greatest Happiness.
