Ragamuffin: A ragged often disreputable person; especially: a poorly clothed often dirty child
I recently watched the move Ragamuffin, about the life of Rich Mullins. I grew up listening to his music when I was younger. I remember the day I heard he lost his life in an accident, it was a sad day. But not sad in a sense that you knew where he was, dancing and singing with his Maker.
I think he was and still is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. His music is so inspiring, encouraging, uplifting, and helps me grow closer to God. His songs have so much life in them.
There was a time when I didn't listen to his music that much. No particular reason, but recently, the past months, I have been listening to it more and more. My all time favorite album of his would be 'A Liturgy, A Legacy and A Ragamuffin Band'.
The other day I was in my jeans, shirt and flip flops. As I looked down at my feet, I couldn't help but think of Rich...always seemed to wear jeans full of holes, a white t-shirt and flip flops or barefoot all the time.
It sounds like I knew Rich personally, I never met him, though I wish I had the chance to have met him. Just through things I have heard him speak on videos, through things I have learned about him in his movie, and listening to his amazing music.
If you have never listened to his music before, I encourage you to look it up and give it a listen, you won't regret it!
'A faith that moves mountains is a faith that expands horizons, it does not bring us into a smaller world full of easy answers, but into a larger one where there is room for wonder' -Rich Mullins
