If you find a woman
with a wild heart
do not try to tame her.
You must adore her
recklessly, the way
she is meant to be loved.
Do not try to quiet her,
for her roars will reach
far and wide.
She has something
important to say.
Help her say it.
Do not get in her way.
She stops for no one.
Do not try to change
the path she has chosen.
Learn also to love the wind
and let it change you.
because it’s not every day you can say you accomplished a feat like this:
not too long ago, or specifically two years ago in august of 2012, I embarked on a special journey with even more special person, not knowing how long it would take or even whether it would really pan out but at the time, it was crystal clear that:
(1) it was going to take a while
(2) it was necessary, like one of those bucket list items but not just for the sake of doing it or for the experience of it, but because there was a guarantee of growth that would come out of it
(3) I had no idea what I was getting myself into
tonight, Amanda & I read the last four chapters of Malachi, MEANING that tonight, Amanda & I have officially finished reading the entire Bible (OT & NT) together. here’s to reading together every night (almost every night, breaks and occasional toomuchschoolwork! situations were always permitted) for the last two years.
so, i can now say that it IS possible and that i can now read Amanda’s face expressions 80-90% of the time. props to God & Amanda for sticking it through the whole time. LULT
one of my goals in life is to learn how to rap.
this is what listening to top R&N tracks on spotify does to me.
This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
None of my words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled,
declares the Sovereign Lord.
reminded tonight of God, this ridiculous, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, God loving us from ages ago and making a covenant so that there could be unconditional love, unworthy forgiveness and belonging, everlasting belonging.
This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord:
I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God, and they will be my people.
No longer will a man teach his neighbour, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.
This is what the Lord says,
HE who appoints the sun to shin by day
who decrees the moon and stars to shin by night
who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar -
the Lord Almighty is his name.
