i apologize for my brief hiatus, but here is a teriffic little quote found in a fantastic book i like to call the Bible-

“I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, REJOICING IN HIS WHOLE WORLD AND DELIGHTING IN MANKIND.”
-proverbs 8:30-31

i just really enjoy this scripture. just take a moment.

read it.

let it marinate.

hmm, what do you think?

yeah. . . i know. its good, right? rejoicing in his WHOLE WORLD and DELIGHTING IN MANKIND. ohhhh i want to delight in mankind and in all that he created within this world.

this leads me to a leah-thought.
if God created us in His image. . . then different cultures and peoples are different facets of who God is, different aspects of his heart. They illustrate his deeply rooted creativity. ahhh. i love people.
i want to just learn to experience life with all kinds of people, rejoicing with them in this whole world God created for us and experiencing and living this life in love.

thats all.

don’t trust burt bacharach

im just sitting here jamming out to some good ole’ burt bacharach and i had an epiphany. . .

my compadre, that talented old crooner is a hypocrite! yes.
In one song, “What the World Needs Now” he says, “What the world needs now,
Is love, sweet love,
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.”

okay. and so then, in “I’ll Never Fall in Love” he ventures to say,
“Don’t tell me what is all about,
‘Cause I’ve been there and I’m glad I’m out,
Out of those chains, those chains that bind you
That is why I’m here to remind you
What do you get when you fall in love?
You get enough tears to fill an ocean
That’s what you get for your devotion.
I’ll never fall in love again.”

ouch, burt. ouch.
thats quite distant from what the whole world needs, i’d say.
basically, don’t take what my pal burt says seriously.
he is a little wishy-washy
