Attempting to commemorate what goes on inside my head

To the one who walked away

Music Playing: I Have A Song by Awaken Generation¬†and Lost Stars by Adam Levine Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got. – Robert Brault   It has been over a year since I wrote anything. I would think that I would write about the most recent milestone in my life: getting married. But here we are. In the year I make one of the biggest commitments I will ever make to the best person I know, I am writing about saying goodbye. So, goodbye, dear friend. I am letting you go. I have hundreds […]

Three years and forever

Music Playing: Everything by Michael Bubl√© There is this video going around of Nicole Kidman on The Tonight Show. It is a hilarious and heartwarming video of how Nicole basically admitted that she liked Jimmy but on their first and only “date,” it was awkward and there were so many mismatched signals, etc. Obviously, it didn’t work out (watch how Jimmy just allows the fact to sink in that Nicole Kidman liked him) and Nicole says, “It wasn’t meant to be.” Annie Downs writes a blog entry with a beautiful perspective on it (You can read the blog entry plus […]

We cannot have His righteousness without denying our own;we cannot have His holiness without confessing our sin;and we cannot receive His redemption without owning up to our bondage. We are bankrupt before Him and fools if we don’t know it. The beauty of the cross is its UGLINESS. God left us no aesthetic religion to idolize,no self effort to perfect,no Law to fulfill. He completely undid us by doing it all Himself. The […]
