1) On Saturday I was listening to Jewel while writing and drinking chai tea in the quiet of the afternoon and I heard this:
/we gotta start feeding our souls/ have been lost to the millions with lots/ who feed on addiction selling pills and what’s hot/ i wish i could save her from all their delusions/ all the confusion/ of a nation that starves for salvation/ but clothing is the closest approximation/ to God and He only knows that drugs/ are all we know of love/ every day we starve while we eat white bread/ and beer instead of a handshake or a hug/ we spill pills and sweep them/ under the rug/ my little sister is a zombie in a body/ with no soul a role she has learned to play/ in a world today where nothing else matters/ but it matters, we gotta start feeding our souls/
2) I finished reading “Through Painted Deserts” by Donald Miller. Here are some quotes that I thoroughly enjoyed:
“Ironing out faithless creases is toilsome labor.”
“It’s funny how you think you need something but you really don’t.”
“Just be good, it seems like, is the point of life; be kind to people; don’t hate anybody; forgive people because we all make mistakes. I know that there are always going to be exceptions to this kind of thinking, but it seems like life would be better if we could just let go of the thought we need more and more stuff to be happy, more and more approval of others.”
3) I was reading my bible and here are some nuggets:
“Prove by the way that you live that you have repents of your sins and have turned to God.” – Matthew 2:8 (NLT, italics mine)
“Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.” – Matthew 7:20 (NLT)
“For I have not come to call those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.” – Matthew 10:13b (NLT, bold and underline mine)
So maybe I have quoted you to death on this one, but these are just a portion of what I wish to share. If you liked reading all of that, then you can look forward to more in the future. If you didn’t… oh well.
I woke up to this today.
