are freaking scary, especially if they seem so real to you, and especially if they seem like they can happen for real… :(
i just need
a lazy saturday. Sleep in till 12, wake up and eat a slow brunch, take a light walk outside, read a good book, stay in bed and listen to some Beethoven and Mozart, cook some delicious biscuits, spend some time reflecting on what God has done, and vision what He will do, paint an abstract painting, drink some nice hot green tea,… BAH I COULD GO ON AND ON.
Lord, be my E V E R Y T H I N G.

…looked expectantly at the bare branches, hoping for one last gust of wind to carry the aroma of orange blossom to his nose. but alas… orange blossom. you could just smell it without even seeing it. :)

Confidence.Courage.Boldness. Only if I had more of this. I sometimes feel like the lion from the Wizard of Oz.. Cowardly Lion: All right, I’ll go in there for Dorothy. Wicked Witch or no Wicked Witch, guards or no guards, I’ll tear them apart. I may not come out alive, but I’m going in there. There’s only one thing I want you fellows to do.

Jesus, You make all things well. Just watching you set up and put all the broken, confusing pieces back together makes me wonder.. what MORE can You do Lord? It’s funny how God can move, how sometimes You find yourself going in one direction, and then He just suddenly turns you around and leads you down a different path that is.. challenging. I like challenges. :) Even with persistence...
Love is not love until love’s vulnerable.– Theodore Roethke (via kari-shma)
Fixed at a crossroad on three paths, I look at each, contemplating which to take. Three paths leading to their own tunnels. How can I take any of these paths? How can I even trust to take one path and be content with not knowing how it would be like to take the other ones? Taking one path involves risk and sacrifice. I despise crossroads very much, but sometimes God can be quite intentional, if...

http://bang.calit2.net/2010/04/ucsd-faculty-coalition-letter-to-svc-drake/ Walked out and participated in a silent sit-in at the Visual Arts facility today. It was very interesting to listen to petitions and reasons about what was going on. I had NO idea that these things were apparent.. Professor Ricardo Dominguez was charged by the UCSD Administration for criminal charges and revocation of...
If we are truly surrendered to Christ, we will never be aware of our own efforts to remain surrendered, because us being consumed with Him would mean that no consequence or circumstance could ever enter our minds. Total, unconditional surrender. Surrender means so much more than “giving up”. God, in turn, gives us salvation when we surrender, and this salvation is what allows us to...
Rachel: Tangly butts Carol: What does that mean? Rachel: It’s not mushy, but not firm either, but it’s like … tangly. Very circular like little kids. Will: PEDO! You’re a pedo. Carol: HAHAHAHAH. So do you have a tangly butt Rachel? Rachel: No, I don’t like the shape of it. I have to go on a butt workout. Rachel likes bubble butts. Conversations we have after...
congratulations to mr. steven on being baptized today. :) it was quite a proud, touching and memorable moment. hope it was for you too. God is good. :)
But these things take time love. These things take backbone. And they’ll tell you what you want to hear ’cause they think it’s better. Better. But you better know how to point out the liars. You’ve got to weigh your wars make sure you’re not fighting for nothing. Nothing. Are you fighting for nothing, nothing? It feels like this world has been growing slowly upside down. Maybe I should move to...
A friday of mourning, and sorrow, and devastation. and yet the day is called “good”. How can the death of someone, of a miracle-worker and life-giver be good? When I start to think about Jesus and how much pain He had gone through, I realize that this act of love is just too good. A love that is so strong that a death of someone can be called good. Jesus carried the cross for my...
