"Graceland" is the name of my favorite song and album. It's by Paul Simon, but more importantly, it's what "home" sounds and feels like to me. We always listened to this album as we traveled from my home in Tennessee to my parents' childhood homes in Florida. But today, it's also a pretty good snapshot of my theology. Somewhere I really believe that the Christian journey is all about a wild trip to Grace-land. As I see it, Grace-land is the place where God is waiting to meet even us–with all the baggage and brokeness that we tote with us. Grace-land is the place where we will be received with open arms, even though our attempts at “getting it right” have been miserable failures at best. But, I think, every step we take is a step on the journey to Graceland.

Best Ev-ar: Workout Equipment
I love this! (I have it for the wii) but i'd imagine that whatever the platform that it's great. The exercises are well thought out and the workouts are hard core--using lots of different muscle groups. They even encourage you to have a healthy competitive streak, which is great for people like me...(who probably don't need any encouragement.) Besides, being sort of a nerd-- I like all the stats. I can see exactly how many calories I've burned and how long my heart was in the target heart rate. There are three levels, and several programs to choose from, so it is appropriate for lots of people. On the days when I'm not able to run or walk or something like that, this is a great substitute (or addition!)
Great, great, great product...
