    the quest.

    "There’s a difference between an adventure and a quest. An adventure is a "there and back again," an exciting, enriching experience that you choose. It’s a thrill, after which you return home, resume your normal life, and pick up where you left off. This is an adventure. But a quest is not something you choose; rather, it comes to you. You sense a requirement, and you’re called to it because of what’s involved. You never really come back from a quest. Either you die for the quest, or change so radically that you never quite return to life as it once was."

    (my paraphrase of Tim Keller, on the difference between the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings)

    Your face, O Lord, will I seek.

    What does it mean to seek the face of God? To actively, earnestly, continually search for him. To see him reflected in snippets of life, in friends, in conversations, in choices, in joy, in pain. To choose not to settle for things that don’t reflect his warmth or his beauty, to refuse to give up the search. To grow to recognize him, even when he’s hidden in the most unexpected of places. Seek, and you’ll find. He gives me this promise, and I intend to take him up on it.

    I took this picture in Colorado, and somehow it reminds me of the Holy Spirit. I must be in love because everything reminds me of Him: pictures of grass, sunlight and shadows, crickets, snippets of conversation, a nectarine, a simple breakfast in a quiet house. I really love him and I realized today I don’t know how to describe why. It’s simply that He is the best. Holy Spirit is the best friend, the best listener, the best innovator, the best artist. He is brilliant at everything. I keep catching myself walking around, staring off into the distance with a huge idiotic grin on my face. I feel like that emoji with a big smile and hearts for eyes. Something has definitely come over me, and I’m not sure what it is, but I like it.

    sometimes.

    sometimes while praying

    i like to speak in haiku

    cuz God likes poems

    and sometimes while driving I like to sing prayers to the tune of bobby darin songs if I can’t think of a tune myself. my favorite song to sing to God is “Beyond the Sea.” Jesus and me, that’s our jam.

    sometimes it’s nice to just turn two chairs towards each other and make a french press and have a coffee with the holy spirit. sometimes I wonder if Jesus drank coffee while he was on the earth. sometimes I wonder if the angels disguise themselves as people to try coffee or ice cream or pickles. 

    one time someone told me I have an insanely fun relationship with God. I get that. Pretty sure it’s because he’s insanely fun. and you tend to look like and dress like and sound like the people you hang out with. that’s why everyone thinks couples tend to look like siblings… they grow alike. I hope that every day I walk with God I look and dress and sound more like him.

    “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” -Terry Pratchet
