On Desire

"Desire is not simply negative; our desires are what get us out of bed in the morning. We desire because we live. The problem is that our desires continue to light on objects that fail to satisfy, objects on the lower end of the scale of being that, if cut off from the Source of their being, quickly dissolve into nothing. The solution to the restlessness of desire is to cultivate a desire for God, the Eternal, in whom our hearts will find rest"

William T. Cavanaugh, "Being Consumed: Economics and Christian Desire"

Hello kikikins!
How are you? I have been busy since arriving in Lebanon with work and such. It is actually really fun being back in the valley. I keep seeing people associated with Western Baptist so it is nice. I love being back in Oregon. Not a huge fan of Idaho:) Never been to Moscow though so it might change my mind. Are you going to the Alumni game? Talk to you soon. Have I told you lately that your boys are adorable. They look like a fun little pair.
