Sunday Silliness and Mental Health Break- “Breathe”

It’s a beautiful spring day in Atlanta, Georgia and this song (see below Youtube clip) by Telepopmusik kept me moving on today’s morning jog.

Other things that happened this week:

– Fellow saint and sinner Paul (a.k.a. known as “hubby” to this saint and sinner) queried, in response to the post, The Dating Game Jesus, whether I’m doing the very thing I critique in proponents of the Gnostic Gospels’ presentation of Jesus- namely, exercising too much imaginative liberty with the historical Jesus. I would retort that the difference here is that I’m very aware that a Jesus who plays the dating game is very much the product of my own tongue-and-cheek humor and nothing more. I’m not sure the same could be said of those on a mission to reconstruct Jesus based on the Gnostic Gospels’ presentation of Him.


– Then on Friday I got a voice-mail message from the director of the Atlanta Speech School, the premiere school in our town for children with learning disabilities; with a highly trained teaching staff, state-of-the-art curriculum and low teacher-to-student ratio for individually tailored learning plans, the school can offer only a few available slots each year for prospective new students.  “Our committee was in unanimous agreement that Samantha would be well served here and we would like to offer her a position in the four-year-old class,” went the message. When I heard that, I cried. Tears of joy.

Here’s the official video for “Breathe” with the hope that you, too, will “breathe” and “just believe.” And may the breath of God fill you up, so that your minds and hearts might be renewed in all manner of good thing.


By the way, what’s with the green powder in the video? See below. Sci-fi, Euro surrealism aside, I’m enjoying the beat and the lyrics:
