Love and Marriage

If marriage could be expressed in a picture, I think this is the honest to goodness way most of us would like to see it. A beautiful, young, perfectly dressed couple, in the prime of life, running from a rose filled church to a get away car that will drive away to the land of happily ever after.

However, if I am correct, I think it more accurately would look like a picture of the same young couple, each in his and her own small boat, traveling down a river held together only by the grasp of their hands. 

No control of the outside world, no control of the current.

Just held together by the strength of their commitment to 
never let go.

Where are you?

I heard Barak Obama say if he met God/Jesus face to face he'd ask Him if he was going "up or down".

But I wouldn't. 

I ask, "Where are You in this world and how can I get there?"

"Oh, and thank You for grace because I feel so undeserving sometimes."

I love Nashville and the people God has surrounded me with. I love my job and the things I do. I love my major and hopefully will do something awesome with it. I love the days and the nights, the sights, sounds, and smells. It's wonderful. This is what it must be to be free. 

I really hate "in between times" in life--where you know where you are, but not always where you're going... but today I just know that I love where I am and that there is a plan for me... I just don't know it yet...

Courageous

I've decided what I want to be. Not for a career. Not yet anyway... but I've decided what I would like people to describe me as. 

Of course I would like someone to describe me as beautiful, fun, caring, happy, or something along those lines. Hopefully loving would come up in there. However, I really think in order to have those adjectives you need one thing first: 

Courage.

I want to be courageous. I want to be bold and be courageous enough to love when it is hard. I want to have the courage to hold my head up in a room full of models. I want to have the courage to smile in the face of adversity. I want to have the courage so stand up and do something that could change not just my life, but the lives of others. I want to have the courage to really be a Christian. 

So now for the hard part... I need to stop wanting and start doing.

Good Love Is On The Way

Oh sweet glory.
I finally got the John Mayer DVD in the mail... 
That's it. Nothing profound to say. Not even going to try. 
I think I might be dying... and it is good. 
Just keep me where the light is.
