The Good Stuff

After weeks and weeks of nasty inversion, the sun finally came out in grand fashion yesterday. 

Panda Express should pay me for this.
It was a much needed change of scenery. I've thought a lot about the why lately. Why do we do this? Why am I putting myself through all of this to get an education? Why are we here? Why is any of this necessary? This quickly elevated to some very theological questions that I can logically answer, yet still have doubts and ponder about frequently like any other human being.

Take THAT, icicles.
I listened to this song walking home yesterday:

The lyrics struck me for the first time (I do admit that I probably would've been moved by Row Your Boat in  this weather) as I walked home, breathed the clean air, and couldn't keep my eyes away from the sky. 

I was raised up believing I was somehow unique
Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, unique in each way you can see
And now after some thinking, I'd say I'd rather be
A functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me
God is real. And all it takes to remember that sometimes is a blue sky. There doesn't need to be any further analysis or questioning. You just know.

And this is what  I woke up to this morning. Two days in a row. I can work with this.

As far as those "answers" the church has released a new series of videos. I loved this one:


  1. I love yours! And you, mostly.

    That was probably the most predictable response ever, but I couldn't come up with anything better. I meant it though.
