you know more than you think you know, just as you know less than you want to know
time is jealous of you, and wars against your lilies and your roses
stirred by some new emotion for which we cannot find expression
i adore simple pleasures, they are the last refuge of the complex
fallen, however, into bad habits of silence
paradoxes are very well in their way. the way of paradoxes is the way of truth
reality entered the room in the shape of a servant to tell the Dutchess that her carriage was waiting
made it iridescent with fancy, and winged it with paradox.

i do not know which to prefer,
the beauty of inflections
or the beauty of innuendoes,
the blackbird whistling
or just after.

mostly it seems like we cant pray for patience when we have our act together, because we cant do it when we are acting.

i also remembered that sometimes when you need to feel the all embracing nature of God, paradoxically you need to hang out in ordinariness, in daily ritual and comfort.

patience is when God makes the now room a little more roomier.

in the meantime i have learned that most of the time, all you have is the moment, and the imperfect love of people.

"life does not seem to present itself to me for my convenience, to box itself up nicely so i can write about it with wisdom and a point to make before putting it on a shelf somewhere. now i understand just enough about life to understand that i do not understand much of anything." -traveling mercies

he'd start to type one thought down, and something altogether different would come out. it was like the computer inside his head was not communicating with the printer

can you patch my jeans Peggy Ann -
Just a little stitch to mend the hole
He has torn
If you can

Maybe I got too set in my ways
He says she reminds him of me
When we first met
In those early days...

The sexiest thing is trust
I wake up to find
The pirates have come
Typing up along your coast
How was I to know
The pirates have come
Between Rebecca's
Beneath your firmaments
I have worshipped
In the Jamaica Inn
In the Jamaica Inn

With the gales
My little boat was tossed
How was I to know
That you'd sent her
With a lantern
To bring me in

"Are you positive this is a friend?"
The captain grimaced,
"Those are cliffs of rock ahead
If I'm not mistaken."

whoa i miss her

'Look at us we're beautiful,
All the people push and pull but,
Let's just go out and ride,
Talk about the things we've tried
Look at us we're beautiful
All the people push and pull but,
They'll never get inside,
We got too much to hide'

"God wants to be wanted" -tozer

God wants to be loved. He wants to be a priority to someone. from cover to cover, from beginning to end, the cry of God's heart is, "why won't you choose me?"

God longs to be desired. just as women long to be desired. this is not some weakness or insecurity on the part of women. "take me for longing, or leave me behind" - allison krauss. God feels the same way

one of the deepest ways a woman bears the image of God is in her mystery, 'something to be explored.' 'it is the glory of God to conceal a matter. to search out a matter is the glory of kings' (prov 25:2)

God yearns to be known. but he wants to be sought after by those who would know him. God does not throw himself at any passerby. if you would know him -you must love him; you must seek him with your whole heart. 'you cannot simply have me. you must seek my, pursue me. i wont let you in unless i know you love me.'
