Five Favorite Switchfoot Lines

After confusing the crap outa my cranium (by looking at open houses for three hours this afternoon), three of us headed downtown to attend the Switchfoot concert at the Commodore.

We quite possibly were the oldest women in attendance.
It didn't matter.
No one cared, especially us.

My five favorite lines from their songs?

  1. You're breathing the highs and lows. We call it living, in this needle and haystack life.
  2. This is your life. Are you who you want to be?
  3. The tension is here, between who you are and who you could be. The tension is here, between how it is and how it should be.
  4. Your love is a symphony all around me.
  5. On the final day I die, I want to hold my head up high, I want to tell You that I tried, to live it like a song. And when I reach the other side, I want to look You in the eye, and know that I've arrived in a world where I belong.
It was interesting to watch a Christian band (who play at Creationfest, with an audience of 15,000 enthusiastic, screaming Christians) perform in a nightclub on Granville to a much smaller (but no less enthusiastic) crowd. (Maybe 500 in attendance.) There was no 'God talk' inbetween songs, but sometimes the songs speak for themselves, no?

Now, more than ever, I have a hankering to attend another Creationfest.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. I live in a time and place where a person can have too many housing options. Seriously. I totally know this is a first world problem

2. That last night's adventure (Richmond Night Market) (Did EVERYONE decide at 9 pm "Hey! Let's go to Richmond" because that? WAS NUTS) was fun because everyone was in a good mood.

3. My birthday wish is that my friends will help me fill up a couple jugs/jars of pennies:

Pennies are for The Last Door's family program.

(If you have pennies to drop off, the jug/jar is on the right side of my house, as pictured below. Feel free to pop by anytime and leave them there. )

(If you live in Surrey, I'll get my mom to put a jar out on the right side of her house too.)

and peace be with you.
