I seem to spend all of my time searching for beauty. Beauty in God, words, stories, music, sunsets, etc. I'm always looking for new books that will touch my heart. I'm always looking for new songs that will make me laugh or cry or just give me that happy, peaceful feeling. I'm always wanting to visit new places that will take my breath away. And sometimes, when I find beauty, it's one of those perfect little moments, you know? But the point is that I'm always searching. C.S. Lewis said:

"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

Makes perfect sense to me. On the days when I can't find any beauty at all, I know that there has to be more than this life.

I found two videos last night that I thought were really beautiful. They are of Jon Foreman playing a sort of "aftershow" after a Switchfoot concert. Just Jon, his guitar, and some people who love his music. Can I just say that these videos almost make Jon Foreman my hero? Every time I see him like this or hear his lyrics, he just seems so genuine and honest. And it seems that, like me, he's searching for beauty. Not to mention, his voice sounds just as lovely alone with his guitar as it does on a record. Here is Southbound Train/Only Hope and here is 24. Enjoy!

Until next time,
