i went to the library today in hopes of finding four specific books.
i didn't find any of them.
i did, however, find discarded poetry on the backs of notecards by the computers.
i took my favorites home.
one of them said:

why do wild geese fly south in the autumn

walking won't take too long.

awesome :)

virginia is for lovers, but...

maybe i took the virginia is for lovers idea a little too far. maybe if we would have stayed there a little bit longer, it could have been something more. because maybe virginia is for lovers, but alabama isn't good for anything besides droughts and muggy july afternoons. and i once heard someone say that there can be no love where there is no water.


i think i may laugh more than i breathe.
life is good.

the summers gone, the years have passed,
my friends have changed, a few did last,
the smallest dreams got pushed aside,
the largest ones that changed my life,
and all i wish for was come to pass
from rock and roll, to love and cash
it’s all success if it’s what you need
do what you like and do it honestly

if i had a chance for another try,
i wouldn’t change a thing
it's made me all of who i am inside
and if i could thank God
that i am here, and that i am alive
and everyday i wake
i tell myself a little harmless lie
the whole wide world is mine

the picture and the lyrics have nothing to do with each other. but the picture makes me laugh and this part of the song stuck out to me earlier, so there you go.

if i have not love.

"before you can be a spiritual leader, you must be spiritually led."

for, "whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech. he must turn from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it."
1 peter 3:10-11

and now i will show you the most excellent way. if i speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, i am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. if i have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if i have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, i am nothing. if i give all i possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, i gain nothing.
1 corinthians 12:31b-13:3

so maybe we should rethink the motives behind our actions. if we have not love, we have nothing at all.

we need each other.

1 kings 19:1-18

there are 7000 soldiers in isreal that belong to God.

elijah thinks he is alone, he needs encouragement. we ALL need encouragement. we all want to know that we are not alone.

the soldiers in isreal are silent soldiers. they are not bold, loud soldiers of God. in the passage, the Lord describes them as what they DON'T do, not what they often are we also like this? we are not called to be silent christians, because in our silence we have become irrelevent.

in our silence, we practice cubicle christianity. we are working for the same company, under the same roof, for the same boss, yet we are working completely independently. we bring this principle to the church. do we spend any time with each other outside of worship services? do we try to have relationships with each other?

life is a series of relationships. we define our lives by these relationships.

so what are we doing?

other people could be relying on me for encouragement. we go to church to worship God, yes, but we also go to gather together and encourage each other. otherwise we get discouraged. we fail.

this is life. we need each other. tell people how you feel.

so who is it that i need to encourage?

* * *
expect random encouragement :)
and you can ask me how i feel. i will tell yo
