Coming Soon: Real Life

Soundtrack of the moment: 
Christina Perri - A Thousand Years
Arvo Part "Speigel Im Speigel" (recommended by Vicki)
Dave Days - Rocketeer

What can I say - I'm diversifying.

Common Eats:
baby dill pickles
broccoli with lots of black pepper (Anyone ever tried white pepper? It's supposed to be a less intense version of black pepper but it smells and tastes like barf.)

I'm nervous/relieved when I think about school ending, feeling peaceful and mellow mostly and then tiiiiired all the time.

In my class on Sundays, we've been going through the book of Proverbs. Sum of the book: fear the Lord. Learning the fear of the Lord is hard because we all think we know what's going down and how life, the universe and everything should be. We wouldn't say that probably, but we act like it. So humility is the answer to learning to fear the Lord.

In the mornings lately, I've been praying this, "God, clue me into how proud and ignorant I am. With that as a starting point, I can begin to seek your wisdom."

Prayers for humility should come with prayers for courage. Getting glimpses of your own depravity is not for the faint of heart. It's devastating if you don't have God.

Today is my Daddio's birthday! I love you, Daddio. You are such an amazing man of God. I respect your faithfulness and compassion so much. Thanks for working so hard for your family. <3

That's all, friends. I'm sorry to be so behind on reading/commenting on all your blogs! I promise I will get caught up soon!



  1. I love you so much! You can do it, finish your school girl! I'm praying for you.
