Myspace or Email?!?!

Aaron- "wait do you have a myspace?"

Me- "no"

Aaron- "what??? why not???"

Me- "I have a life, and myspace takes up to much time that I don't have."

Aaron- "but myspace is so much better than email."

Me- "no it's not, email is the best."

Aaron- "Myspace is like paper, email is like rock. Paper always wins!"

Me- "Rock can beat paper any day! Just think about it: try throwing a rock at paper the paper will break!!"

Aaron- "no it won't!!! ask your mom!!"

Me- "She's gone."

Aaron- "Ask your dog, then!!"

Me- "He's asleep"

Aaron- "then ask your self what would Jesus do?"

Me- "He would choose rock because it is His creation, and paper is man made and kills trees."

Aaron- "Exactly!!! no, wait...Ok...let me tell you what you are going to do: go onto Myspace and click sign up."

Me- "Aaron I have a life and don't want to lose it."

Aaron- "Have you seen the Office?"

Me- "It's like the best show ever!!!"

Aaron- "I have clips of the Office on my myspace. So, myspace is the best!!!"

Me- "No, the Office beats all, including myspace."

Aaron- "Ok, you're right, but myspace has got to be good if it has the Office."

Faith In Uncertainty

"I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: 'Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.' And he replied, 'Go out into the darkness and put your hand in the hand of God. That shall be to you better than a light and safer than a known way'." ~M. Louise Haskins

Williams does it again!!!

This quote is actually from Vanauken, but it is about Williams:

"In Charles Williams Descent into Hell he sets forth his Doctrine of Substituted Love: carrying one another's burdens is not just a figure of speech or something meaningful only in terms of physical burdens like a trunk. Davy's burden was not death but the fear of death. I asked her to give me that burden, a real handing over, like surrendering a trunk to a porter. An act of handing over. And I took it-also act. I then entered into the fear, her fear, with all my heart and mind and imagination, felt it, carried it along with my own fear, which was also real but other. And her burden grew lighter." (A Severe Mercy, 165)

Learning Contentment

These quotes have helped sustained me through my two and half years at a mundane job:

"Resignation is a bregudging existence, one based in not believing the best of God. [It] operates out of a mind-set that God has finite resources - a God of scarcity and not abundance - as though if one person gets blessed, that diminishes our chances of being similarly blessed." - Carolyn McCulley

"[Some] people, however, are always seeking God's will for their lives. They jump from one thing to another, run here and there, and consult all their friends. They have yet to realize that God's will for them is to faithfully carry out their present responsibilities, faithfully doing the job He has already given them...if He does have an alternative plan for their lives, He will show them, in a quiet, normal way, one day when they are least expecting it and when their present responsibilties are completed. God's will is often simply that we do the next thing, as it comes, as best we can and for His glory." -Gigi Tchivijan


"A great many things in God's divine providences do not look to the eye like goodness. But faith sits down before mysteries such as these, and says, The Lord is good, therefore all that He does must be good no matter how it looks. I can wait for the explanation." - Hannah Whitall Smith


"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for" -Euripides
