“I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.” - 2 Corinthians 11:2-3
Sometimes, silence is all I can give.
A moment in Venice
Colors danced in Venice Like mist teasing light. Craftsmen knelt in denim fields Pressing passion, like brass rivets, to close the gaps.
Snow, like heather, falling, the earth, like feathers, fluttering. Your arms, bound around me, Your eyes, listening to the sea. My thoughts, like wind, asleep. My hopes, are wandering sheep. Mina plays upon my dreams, your vibrance opens at the seams. Images are fears and mirrors. Speak away the tears and terrors. Find the wisdom in this suff’ring, to calm the ebbs and tides I...
Nothing is easy but falling and death.
I want inspiration, transformation, liberation from frustration, devastation in perspiration from desperation. Need reparation from desecration. Need transformation.
I am a liquid, not a solid, what will my use be? Baking, evaporating in steam, burning, scalding, bathing to clean?
“A man’s heart should be so open to God that a woman would have to see Him just to find him.” - A. F. Lolowang, in reply to Max Lucado

I love this: what kind of happiness do you carry in your laughter is it full of that uncanny ability to capture? do you think love could ever be could it ever be again some kind of answer From Dylan Jones
Woolf heard me, singing her song. She wiped my eyes, Held up her wrist, And broke the jar with ice.
Lasting Love, part 1
“Love is doing what is best for someone. But making self the object of our highest affections is not best for us. It is, in fact, a lethal distraction. We were made to see and savor God — and savoring him, to be supremely satisfied, and thus spread in all the world the worth of his presence. Not to show people the all-satisfying God is not to love them. To make them feel good about...

“No one ever said that they learned their deepest lessons of life, or had their sweetest encounters with God, on the sunny days. People go deep with God when the drought comes. That is the way God designed it….The design of [the Apostle] Paul’s suffering was to make radically clear for his own soul, and for ours, that God and God alone is the only treasure who lasts. When...
Lasting Love, Part 2
This is one of the best expressions of what it means to truly love that I have ever read. It is the beat and goal of my heart, I am so glad I read someone actually put this in words: “What is the nature and aim of glad-hearted, Christian giving? It is the effort — with as much creativity and sacrifice as necessary — to give others everlasting and ever-increasing joy — joy...
If we do not embrace the path of joy-laden, painful love, we will waste our...– John Piper
I’m listening to dance music, which is probably how this came out of my head. Sort of a song to a very electronic dance rhythm: Hold it, Button up, Don’t go outside. Life is fine, dreary sky, Don’t have to fly, Just stay inside. Sheets and sweats, Don’t make a fuss, Life is easy Just slide with us. Why insist on working hard? You know you get So worn, so tired. Why dont...
