Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

On one hand I want to live in a little cabin on a quiet lake with a dozens of acres of woods behind me where I can hunt and have a big garden and just be in the trees with nature.

On the other hand I want to live smack dab in the middle of a huge metropolis in a decent apartment and at any moment I have access to theaters and shops and libraries and fancy grocery stores and even as someone who is very easily stressed out by large crowds I long to people-watch rush hour traffic.

I don’t know what to do with my life. These are such opposites and I can’t see myself ever being successful enough to have both. A flat in the city and a cabin to escape to.

Psalm 16: Thankful.

1 Keep me safe, my God,

    for in you I take refuge.

2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;

    apart from you I have no good thing.”

3 I say of the holy people who are in the land,

    “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”

4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.

    I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods

    or take up their names on my lips.

5 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;

    you make my lot secure.

6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;

    surely I have a delightful inheritance.

7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;

    even at night my heart instructs me.

8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.

    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;

    my body also will rest secure,

10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,

    nor will you let your faithful one see decay.

11 You make known to me the path of life;

    you will fill me with joy in your presence,

    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

You are holy
You are worthy
Lord of all

Never ending
You will reign forevermore

You shine like a million suns ablaze
Wrapped in eternal life and grace
Jesus, the first and last
The bright and morning star

Humility is perfect quietness of heart. … It is to be at rest when nobody praises me and when I am blamed or despised.

Would we with ink the ocean fill
And the expanse of the sky be stretched in parchment?
Would we line with canvasses
The walls of our hearts apartments?
Any attempts to capture His image would fall short.

I really really want an all-night library


Like a regular library, but open 24 hours and there are bunk beds and things to sleep on, and all the books you can read, and a little booth that sells tea.

Just somewhere you could go if you have insomnia or are lonely in the middle of the night, or need somewhere to hang with friends after hours, or just want to be in a public space at night that’s not a bar or club.

I have, for far too long, spent a large amount of time each day on a computer.

The activities, the reasons, and the websites, they have all varied. 

What has not is how little value much of it has added to my life.

Yes, I have some excellent friends and experiences from these times, but I feel at this point in time, I need to change it a bit. 

From now on, I’m going to be attempting to cut down on how much time I spend online everyday.

My challenge to myself is to spend more time in the Word than on Facebook. That won’t be easy.

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, put first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

Oh, God, be my everything, be my delight
Be, Jesus, my glory My soul’s satisfied
Oh, God, be my everything, be my delight
Be, Jesus, my glory My soul’s satisfied

My Jesus, you satisfy
My Jesus, you satisfy

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Oh, God, be my everything, be my delight
Be, Jesus, my glory My soul’s satisfied

9 How can a young man keep his way pure?
    By guarding it according to your word.
10 With my whole heart I seek you;
    let me not wander from your commandments!
11 I have stored up your word in my heart,
    that I might not sin against you.
12 Blessed are you, O Lord;
    teach me your statutes!
13 With my lips I declare
    all the rules[c] of your mouth.
14 In the way of your testimonies I delight
    as much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate on your precepts
    and fix my eyes on your ways.
16 I will delight in your statutes;
    I will not forget your word.
