the afterglow v.2.0


((this will most likely bore ya'll. but beks is a good friend. also she's gotten this idea about becoming as stubborn as i am & i'm not up to outlasting her. *grins*))





Day 02. in which jess, pam& dami discover the 25th floor &get lost.
Not sure how I'll remember this... 2nd day starts with worship & message by Mark Dever: "The Story: understanding the story line of the bible". Very good, very fast. You should download it right now. He spoke some about how the OT customs foreshadow the NT gospel. (not a whole lot but something i love studying)
Pam, Britt Hall & I stood in line for 1 hr & ate a quick lunch with random folks. I left early for the hotel to get Pam's jacket. Somehow I took a wrong tunnel & ended up at another hotel. Thanks to the sczebels I had a close seat anyway. Mike Bullmore spoke on applying the gospel to all of life. Excellent. Are we making gospel connections? "A man is not so inclined to give up when he sees in panorama".

After the message, we prayed for Beks who wasn't feeling so hot. Pam, Jess and I went back to our room. She wasn't there. We figured she couldn't sleep, but we couldn't find her anywhere. We ambled 'round the hotel taking random pictures. Of chandeliers, mirrors, each other, people we didn't know, staircases, elevators... (thankfulness for the delete button.)
Pami remembered a set of elevators she'd discovered by the causeway. We decided to go see if we could find a shortcut. Stepping in, we became girlish excitement because they had more floors on this side than the normal elevators. All the way up to 25. A sense of the unknown waiting to explored. We decided to hit the top first. Up we jolted...

((to be continued. singles are going to a movie tonight &my fam is celebrating my birthday first so i'm off))

found another review on cold play this one is more positive.


"Politik" argues that everyone on earth has intrinsic value, and appeals for personal space, peace of mind, trust, confidence and strength. After making unspecified mistakes, a man reaches out for help ("In My Place"). Similarly, lead vocalist Chris Martin?s emotional load is lightened by a lady?s tender conversation on "Green Eyes" ("Honey, you are a rock upon which I stand"). He lets love dispel dark clouds ("Daylight"), looks for ways to improve strained relationships ("Clocks," "The Scientist," "A Whisper," "Warning Sign") and asks the Lord for style and grace ("God Put a Smile Upon Your Face"). On the title track, the singer shows empathy when he takes his girl back to the place where she experienced abuse or rejection and pledges to destroy it along with whatever unhappy memories it contains ("I?m gonna buy this place and see it burn/And do back the things it did to you in return").


None


From compassionate lyrics to liner notes that stick up for developing countries, Coldplay is a caring band with a degree of conscience. Well worth a listen.
