For whenever I speak, I cry out,
I shout, “Violence and destruction!”
For the word of the LORD has become for me
a reproach and derision all day long.
If I say, “I will not mention him,
or speak any more in his name,”
there is in my heart as it were a burning fire
shut up in my bones,
and I am weary with holding it in,
and I cannot.

(Jeremiah 20:8-9)

Then the snow started falling
We were stuck out in your car
You were rubbing both of my hands
Chewing on a candy bar

You said, ain’t this just like the present
To be showing up like this”
As a moon waned to crescent
We started to kiss

And I said I know it well

That secret that we know
That we don’t know how to tell
I’m in love with your honor
I’m in love with your cheeks
What’s that noise up the stairs babe?
Is that Christmas morning creaks?

I’ll miss you Derek Jeter.
What a captain.

I’ll miss you Derek Jeter.

What a captain.

"Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you. I have many in this city who are my people."

— God to Paul (Acts 18)

How shall the young direct their way?
What light shall be their perfect guide?
Your Word O Lord, will safely lead,
If in its wisdom they confide.
Sincerely I have sought you Lord,
O let me not from you depart;
To know your will and keep from sin
Your Word I cherish in my heart

He stayed


"Well, when Jesus looked down from the cross, he didn’t think, ‘I am giving myself to you because you are attractive to me.’ No, he was in agony, and he looked down at us - denying him, abandoning him, and betraying him - and in the greatest act of love in history, he stayed.

He said, ‘Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.’ He loved us, not because we were lovely to him, but to make us lovely.”

-Tim Keller, Meaning of Marriage
