Burlap is back! Some may remember the band from the late nineties. Burlap to Cashmere has a special place in our hearts because it was one of our first “dates”. We weren’t officially dating but I invited Emily to a Burlap to Cashmere concert with some of my high school friends (Scott Lenger & John Foote). I knew she liked the band and I hoped the experience would give her an experience to “like” me as well!
Anyway, this past week they released a new CD. Here is one of their new songs, “Closer to the Edge.” This song, both music and lyrics, captures current feelings and thoughts that are swirling around in our heads. The journey we are on right now is by far one of the most challenging and stretching ventures we have been on. We are a mix of emotions and thoughts and almost constantly feel on edge. However, at the same time we have never felt the peace and presence of God more in our lives. We wouldn’t have it any other way. God is good and his provision will prevail.
