An excerpt from Casting Crown’s “Voice of Truth” Oh, what I would do to have the kind of strength it takes To stand before a giant with just a sling and a stone Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors shaking in their armor Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand But the giant’s calling out my name and he laughs at me Reminding me of all the...
I couldn’t help but reblog this. rumbleintake: kaplowboom: idontknowwhoyouare: yerawizardharry:whysosirius:(via disfordarren) Best. Video. Ever.
August 28th may be my birthday, but it’s also a far more important anniversary of a far greater event. (At least to most people. I think my birthday is pretty boss). MLK Jr’s I have a dream speech. I discovered this fact a few years ago and it made me look at the date a little differently. This year, Glenn Beck is holding some sort of rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and is...
I was burning a candle and when the candle finished burning down, the fire DIDN’T STOP. So weird. I finally had to snuff it with a jar lid because it wouldn’t blow out. How it looked after: And I found this hot glue under it after…Maybe that’s what was causing it…..

Ramblings on Relationships
I was selling tickets at the movie theatre on Sunday when a couple came up. The man bought two tickets, one for him, one for his wife/partner, each for a different movie. What does it really say about a relationship in which this is happening? They can’t agree on something as simple as a movie? Both would rather meet their own needs and desires than sacrifice for the other. Then again,...
Dear no boy in particular/every boy I've ever...
Dear Boy, Are you aware of how much energy I’ve spent on you? How much time? The jury is still out on whether it’s been worth it. If I took all that time and energy back I could probably learn to play a new instrument or write a novel or something equally worthwhile. If I took back all the money I’ve spent on you and for you I’d breathe a little easier when paying the...
Reading Mein Kampf
I thought I was going to wait until I was done reading Mein Kampf to blog about it, but I thought maybe it would be just as well to blog as I’m reading it. Is it sad that I can’t read Hitler’s autobiography without highlighting or underlining something in it? I’m not going to lie, the man makes a lot of smart points and has some really good insights into the nature of...

tumblrbot asked: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INANIMATE OBJECT?
I read a lot. Some of it’s high minded, some of it’s….well….Let’s just say I put my copy of Twilight next to the complete works of Jane Austen while I was rearranging my bookshelf recently and felt pretty guilty about it. Heaven forbid I offend Ms. Austen, after all. Yet when it comes to making a list of books that everyone must read….Men, women, whoever, the...
