Loving Christ First

My girlfriend, Dana, was over with her daughter this weekend. It was the first time I saw Dana since we started dating, and the second time I saw her in person since knowing her for the past three or four years. She stayed with…

Retreat, Then Advance

Was at a retreat all weekend. My NaNo has suffered. As of today I need to write 1800 words a day. That will go up more tomorrow. I can deal with it. My bitterness has been boiling over into rage towards others. The fury…

Guatemala: Train Musem

This happened Sunday, but I want more pictures before moving forward. We went to a train museum. Our idea of a museum and theirs is a little different. I’m pretty sure their train museum would be our train graveyard. I’m not sure if this…

Guatemala: Church and School

We went to church in Zacapa. It’s a beautiful structure. It has a courtyard. And barbed wire. If that isn’t safety, what is. Last year we didn’t get to church because of a flight delay. Today I sat there, admiring the relaxed nature of…

Guatemala: Returning

I forgot a lot about Guatemala. It’s easy to recall the men armed with shotguns guarding gas stations and other high income buildings. It’s easy to remember the beauty of a city built around mountains and in tiers, with the horror of seeing entire…

Guatemala Sept 21st, 2013

Finally, right? It won’t be entirely verbatim, but mostly I’m taking straight from my journal with some pictures inserted. September 21st, 2013 We are in Guatemala. The women are beautiful. The country is beautiful. the city is beautiful. The morning started at 4:15am. After…

Guatemala Part II

I still need to write about my first trip! But today I finished up my vaccination for one of the hepatitis strains I started long ago for this trip to Guatemala. I was also asked by Pastor if I wanted to go. I’ve been…

I Love You

With it being the holiday season, I feel love should be in the air. Not romantic love, but real love. I was informed the other day that I too easily state I’m in love. I love pretty openly, freely, and quickly, and while the…

Use Your Gifts

You have to watch this video. Made me tear up a little. I wish I could embed it, but it’s saying the site doesn’t exist. In general I adore Lindsey Stirling. I’m not a huge fan of her music videos, but she’s immensely talented…

Thankful

It’s been a long year. There have been incredibly painful and joyful moments. These are a few of the major things I’m thankful for in the past year. God, Christ, and a loneliness and hurt that allowed me a closer relationship and stronger faith….

A Great Guide

“Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” -Psalm 119:105 NLT Today’s daily devotion was about memorizing the word of God and using it as guidance in your life. I’ve been doing that more and more moving…

Guatemala: Aftermath

I’ll be going through the day to day, but I want to get the picture first. The trip was pretty life altering, as has been the past few weeks, which is good. I think I’m getting back on track to where I was. During…
