If you're just stumbling upon the blog, or have been pointed here by a friend, I hope that you take the time to read a few of my posts.  I try to post with some regularity, just thoughts and ideas about things going on in my mind.  The title refers to the story of when Jacob tricks his older brother Esau into selling his birthright for a simple pot of stew.

Famished and fatigued, Esau was so stuck on his immediate circumstance that he failed to appreciate the significance of the price he paid for gratification.  I try to avoid this in my life- not always successfully- and I believe that we all could learn from this mistake.  After all, that's what life is.  A brief moment of time that we've been given to make something of.  We all have to live IN the moment, but we don't have to live FOR the moment-- I want my life to be bigger than this moment. 

That's my journey, trying to stay focused on the big picture while living in the small one.  No matter how you've found this, I invite you to join me.   If you'd like updates on new posts, subscribe or like the page on Facebook (box to the right).  Feel free to comment on any posts, I would love to hear your feedback.

May you find Grace and Peace in your life.
