Afterthoughts

Some writing, some music, some funnies. Enjoy.

"i delight greatly in the Lord, my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness..."
Isaiah 61:10

Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough.

Hard to get this sunrise out of my head… 

For only a couple weeks out of the year the sun rises behind Half Dome, illuminating it’s epic profile like nothing else

It’s quite an undertaking to start loving somebody. You have to have energy, generosity, blindness. There is even a moment right at the start where you have to jump across an abyss: if you think about it you don’t do it.

A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul.

Me and the Mountain by Rodney Allen
“Mount Taranaki/Egmont (2518m) and tarn on the Pouakai Rangers, New Zealand. I spent a cold night beside the tarn waiting for completely still water. This happened just before sunrise, with the full moon about to set.”

“Happiness is not a goal…it’s a by-product of a life well lived.”

“Many people lose the small joys in the hope for the big happiness.”

- Pearl S. Buck

The Christian faith has a hope that overwhelms grief. This hope doesn’t get rid of the grief or pain but sweetens and shifts it.
