So you say there is no hope. Maybe God is dead and gone.
So you think that he can't break a heart that's harder than a stone?
So you feel so wrecked and dirty, he could never make you new?
Man, have I got news for you.
I'm so compelled to tell you that it's true, so true: listen, I've got news for you.

-I've Got News Andrew Peterson

I love Andrew Peterson.
You should get his new CD.

There's been alot in my head as of late but I just can't seem to find the words to go along with the stuff that is stuck in my head. It is a very obnoxious thing.

At this moment in time though my head is clear and I am just relaxing in the wonderful green place that is my room. Listening to my parents watching Gladiator--which btw is an excellent movie, just for the record.

Wait...never mind my head is not a clear place. =P

"The joy doesn't come from the suffering the joy comes from knowing what's on the other side."

"See I think at the bottom end of all of this--the reason we don't want to suffer, the reason all of us struggle through sacrifice; is I don't think we honestly believe that on the otherside of death there is something better than what this world has to offer."
Todd Nighswonger

Do I really believe that there is something better than this life?

Ok grant it we can all gripe and moan about how awful life is at times but honestly, walk outside on a beautiful day when everything is going the way you would like it to. Walk outside take a big deep breath and then tell me if there is really something better out there for you.

Seriously tell me that. Don't just spout it off because you've been taught it your entire life. Don't tell me that with a voice that lacks a real passion, or even a voice that tries to conger up passion where there is none.

Deep, deep, deep down do you really think that on the otherside of death there is something far better than what this world has to offer?

Do you really?

Do I really?

Then why don't we live like it alot of times?

Why do we pour so much of yourselves and our resources

I want that passion that is contagious.



What to do with life kids what to do with life....

Home Again!

Rejoice oh little children, Ming is finally home.

Ok ok, so I was gone for just over a day--but I agree with Stephen, it feels longer when you're out of town.

This is going to be a....I'm not even sure what to call it but it'll be an update.

Car ride up--pretty mundane. I listened to a lot of music though. Andrew Peterson and Downhere are my friends. But that's another conversation for another time.

Jun-Fung and Alex played...who knows what and Ying and Emily played Sims on Emily's laptop.

Anyways....hmmm yes.

People can be interesting.

Take that as you would like to take it.

It honestly is refering to many things going on in my head right now, so it's not one specific thing.

So yeah.

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me your heart for the once forgotten

I like this song.

Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don't turn away
And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you
-Tenth Avenue North
Ok people I really truly honestly mean this.
No matter what happens in my life--no matter what circumstance I find myself in--no matter who may fail me--no matter how many times I fail myself: No matter what I know, I know that I know that I know that my God is bigger than it all.
And that He loves me like crazy much.
Even me with all my screw ups and mess ups.
Depravity, sin, and all.
Just so everyone is clear--my name was taken from;

This book--


Thank you.

Just so we're clear guys, just so we're clear. =P

Is going good.

But forgive me as I go on an introspective stint for the next little while.

I wish I had this thing all figured out.

I wish that I knew exactly what not to do and what to do.

I wish I knew when to keep my mouth shut and when to open it.

I wish I didn't screw up and I wish that I was at least more perfect than I am.

Mostly though I just wish I could forgive, love, and see people the way Jesus saw them.

I wish I cared more.

And then part of me wishes I didn't care as much.

Because when you care--it hurts.

Anywaysssss enough with the deep stuff--

I'm almost done with my CNA class, yes, it is cause for great celebration and rejoicing.


I'm tired.

Goodnight world.

I have one last statement.

This year has been crazy.

And that's almost an understatement.

We (Camden, Stephen, and I) went to Hobby Town because Stephen has gotten Camden and Drew in to That's all I have I have to say about that place--I was the only girl in the entire store for most of the

The sky was amazinggg.

Then after that...while my boyfriend painted...

I took pictures

And more pictures


Then we made dinner and I am now home.

Salads are good.

Ohhh I dislike Micro-- alot alot.

But that's ok.

The sun has finally come out.

Random thoughts--

The by quality precious blood of Christ.

God invested that blood that is by quality precious into me--into you, into us as Christians. He poured it out so he could redeem us from our slavery to sin.

That's a pretty big investment--and if you think about it, if God invested something that valuable into your life--do you really think He doesn't care about your life? Do you really think He isn't going to take care of you? After He paid that much for you. Whatever it is we're going through He knows, not only does He know but He cares. me you aren't going to slip through the cracks.

I promise.

I like mornings...sort of. =P

[justin I was being sarcastic.]

Friday, October 3, 2008

I'm getting back in the swing of things...I think.

Life changes, life goes on, the world keeps spinning, and God really is good.

Even in the midst of drama.


Life indeed.

Honestly people who read this [if there are any =P]

Why are you reading this?

Anyways so yes...........hmmmmm....

Food is good.

Ok, whatever I'm just going to write now.

There's so much I can say...but yet I can say so little. It's kind of obnoxious...I can go off on tangents and rants quite easily though and it's something that I'm working on...slowly, but I am working on it. =)

This quote made me smile--

"Pride is one of those sins that sneaks around, trying to keep you unaware that it exists in the first place. One of its most subtle moves is to make you feel like life is serious - that you are serious - and that the things we do and think about are important business. That’s the trick: pride makes you think that you are very important, and should be taken seriously, when in reality you are a very tiny sinner redeemed by grace. Lighten up. The people who know God the best vigorously pursue Him, but can laugh as they run. And when people who know you and love you point out ways that you are silly, odd, and laughable, they are doing you a favor. They’re reminding you of how big the universe is, how small you are, and how good it is to have an oddball like you be saved by grace alone."

I'm an odd, very tiny sinner redeemed by grace. =)

Frisbee was fun tonight--even if we got there incredibly really really late. It was still fun. A little...different at times? Anyways, I'm tired and I have clinicals in the morning....-_- Bleh.

Goodnight all.

Oh yes--Shoreline's new sermon--amazingness.

Alright now really goodnight.

Yes, God is good.

And Justin Glacken--I...well you know what. =P

Isn't that prettiness. =)

I love God.
I love sunrises.
Even if mornings and I don't get along the greatest. =P
