Giving up a false self

No real reason for this picture, expect it made me think about relationships and how many of my relationship in the past weren't built on trust, they were built on lies. They were lies coming from me, things I thought I wanted people to believe in, yet could hold no's amazing how the false self can fool everyone, including me... Posted by Hello

Grieving...It never stops

So, over the past two years, I have learned more about how to grieve and how our society doesn't know how to do it. Trust me, I'm still learning how to do it properly. But I'm sitting here in class (that's right I'm at Bethel) and I'm running through a list of things that I am grieving through. It's so hard and yes, some of them are superficial, but I'm grieving through:
1. LeRon Shults, an old theology professor I had...He's fantastic
2. That part of my inner circle isn't's so tough without them
3. That Boulevard Beer isn't sold in Chicago, but is in St. Paul
4. That "I love the 90's" is starting on VH1 and I'm in class

Don't laugh, but they are true...learning how to give up lesser dreams in order to receive better, more fulfilling dreams is never easy but it's worth it...I'll let you know how things are going soon.

A first timer...

So, in order to keep people updated in my life, I knew that I could use this as opposed to regular email. Let me tell you what I hope this site will accomplish:
1. I want to be able to show people what I am learning, not only at my seminary, but through the beautiful people I interact with on a daily basis.

2. I want to share with people great books, quotes, music, etc here. Things that matter to me I hope to share with you.

3. I just want to give you some of my thoughts and my journey. It's only so I can process more clearly on this crazy journey I have been on recently.

Otherwise, this is for you. For you to see a piece into my life and the things that are going on here. I hope you enjoy this page as much as I enjoy writing it.
