Playlist II

A few days ago, I found myself making a new playlist for my ipod.  My playlists tend to be based on emotions or themes; last spring, I made one called "Ministry."  

In honor of my upcoming trip to Kenya, this one is named "home."  It has 40 songs, which seems fitting for the season.  As I was listening to it, I realized that I could have also named it "Psalms."  Like the Psalms, it covers just about every human emotion.  

I am hopeful that when I am feeling far from home, it will help remind me who I am and where I come from.
