Wow!  I was reading some of my recent posts and dang, I'm depressing!  I don't write much but I guess I feel most moved to write when I am sad or feeling reflective.  When I go back and read on my blog, I'm going to have to remind myself that those spaces?  Those long gaps between one post and another?  Those were good times.  Life was good enough that I didn't feel the need to emotionally vomit on the internet.  

Moving on before this becomes the most narcissistic post of all time...

I've decided I must re-watch this movie as soon as possible. 


One carpet bag and an umbrella to whoever knows what movie this refers to!

Next post will be a positive one, mkay?

Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.  Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked.

For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.  Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

Therefore, we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.  We live by faith, not by sight.  We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.  So we make it our goal to please Him...
II Corinthians 5:1-9

I read this at 7:15 this morning.  At 7:55, I learned that my grandfather had passed away in the darkness before dawn.  That is, he passed from darkness into dawn.
