Happy Mothers Day to this beautiful lady that I am so incredibly blessed to be able to call my Mama :) :) :) Thank you for the twenty years you've spent patiently and continually explaining to me that sometimes there aren't detailed directions and extreme planning will not solve all of life's problems :P Thank you for all the times you've listened on the other end of the line when I've called from Erie (with the wind howling in the background) freaking out about something. And, thank you for always directing my heart back to Christ and his unfailing love :) 

"Impatience is a form of unbelief. It's what begin to feel when we start to doubt the wisdom of God's timing or the goodness of God's guidance. It springs up in our hearts when our plan is interrupted or shattered. . . . The opposite of impatience is not a glib denial of loss. It's a deepening, ripening, peaceful willingness to wait for God in the unplanned place of obedience, and to walk with God at the unplanned pace of obedience - to wait in His place and go at His pace." ~John Piper

"Storytelling is imaginative and creative in nature. It is an act by which man strives to realize his capacity for wonder, meaning and delight. It is also a process in which man invests and preserves himself in the context of ideas. Man tells stories in order to understand his experience, whatever it may be. The possibilities of storytelling are precisely those of understanding the human experience." ~N. Scott Momaday, "The Man Made of Words"

thank you Lord for sunshine

thank you Lord for the songs of the birds

thank you Lord ballet flats and twirl-y skirts
thank you Lord for little girls with curly hair and bright smiles
thank you Lord for patience
thank you Lord for simple reasons to make quick phone calls to my sister and hear her voice again
thank you Lord for worship
thank you Lord for long conversations with my boyfriend about who are You and glorifying You
"Now [Jesus] was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, there was a woman who had had a disabling spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not fully straighten herself. When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her, 'Woman, you are freed from your disability.' And he laid his hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and she glorified God." ~Luke 13:10-13 

Oh, that I may be like the woman in Luke 13

the Lord healed me and I glorified Him.

I think as a dancer I was probably searching for my own medium, and in this search an enormous interest in all kinds of dance was awakened in me.' She regrets that dance is inclined 'to be bracketed.' One of her ambitions, she says, is to instill a very full appreciation of all kinds of dance in her students.

"Morrie . . . had developed his own culture--long before he got sick. Discussion groups, walks with friends, dancing to his music in the Harvard Square church. He started a project called Greenhouse, where poor people could receive mental health services. He read books to find new ideas for his classes, visited with colleagues, kept up with old students, wrote letters to distant friends. He took more time eating and looking at nature and wasted no time in front of TV sitcoms or 'Movies of the Week'." ~Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

They were of all kinds, --poetry, and wild weird tales prevailing. He evidently chose books in accordance with his own tastes, not because such and such were classical or established favorites.

Then Moses said to God, 
“If I come to the people of Israel and say to them,
 ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ 
and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’
 what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, 

I am who I am.” 

And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, 
I Am has sent me to you.’” God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel,
 ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, 
and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ 
This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered

The staged "reading" people are really awkward.
Whoever put together the section that started around 1:52 was probably OCD or at least really likes sorting things by color and shade. Maybe each section is sorted by some category (e.g. author's name, genre, etc.) and it's just that only the color section is distinguishable on the film . . . or maybe not. Okay, I'll stop now.

The opening statements of this video certainly have a bit of an evolutionary worldview with which I would disagree, but the message is powerful.

The end is rather abrupt. And, doesn't reach a conclusion.

So, I'll just supply my own brief (and therefore far from comprehensive) conclusion.

There is beauty in community, but that beauty is much more true when the community is founded in a perfect standard and a perfect love and the desire to know that Love more deeply. It's not about personal promotion. It's about pursing Perfection in all of His glory. Conformity is not community.

"Resolved, That I will do whatsoever I think to be most to the glory of God, and my own good, profit, and pleasure, in the whole of my duration; without any consideration of the time, whether now, or never so many myriads of ages hence. Resolved, to do whatever I think to be my duty, and most for the good and advantage of mankind in general. Resolved, so to do, whatever difficulties I meet with, how many soever, and how great soever." ~Jonathan Edwards

"That the great are not as happy as they seem, that the external circumstances of fortune and rank do not constitute felicity, is asserted by every moralist; the historian can seldom, consistently with his dignity, pause to illustrate this truth, it is therefore to the biographer we must have recourse. After we have beheld splendid characters playing their parts on the great theater of the world, with all the advantages of stage effect and decoration, we anxiously beg to be admitted behind the scenes, that we may take a nearer view of the actors and actresses."

"Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! 
O what a foretaste of glory divine! 
Heir of salvation, purchase of God, 
born of his Spirit, washed in his blood. 

This is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior all the day long; 
this is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior all the day long. 

Perfect submission, perfect delight, 
visions of rapture now burst on my sight; 
angels descending bring from above 
echoes of mercy, whispers of love. 

Perfect submission, all is at rest; 
I in my Savior am happy and blest, 
watching and waiting, looking above, 
filled with his goodness, lost in his love."

~Fanny Crosby, "Blessed Assurance" 

blessed assurance -- I don't need to live in worry or fear, I can live in full assurance of the beauty and eternal stability of the gospel

this is my story -- people love stories - they love to hear/read/see them and they love to tell them, it is so beautiful that my story is in fact the story of my Savior and I can share joy and friendship with others who have the same story :)

lost in His love -- I don't need to have any reservations about the way in which I interact with my Savior, I am free to be fully lost in His love

Those moments when being in three literature classes really means reading from different authors, in different cultures, at different time periods, in different genres with different stylistic elements, but about the same thing . . .

" . . . Once again/Do I behold these steep and lofty cliffs,/That on a wild secluded scene impress/Thoughts of more deep seclusion; and connect/The landscape with the quiet of the sky./The day is come when I again repose/Here, under this dark sycamore, and view/These plots of cottage-ground, these orchard-tufts,/Which at this season, with their unripe fruits,/Are clad in one green hue, and lose themselves/'Mid groves and copses . . . These beauteous forms,Through a long absence, have not been to me/As is a landscape to a blind man's eye:/But oft, in lonely rooms, and 'mid the din/Of towns and cities, I have owed to them/In hours of weariness, sensations sweet,/Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart;/And passing even into my purer mind,/With tranquil restoration:--feelings too/Of unremembered pleasure: such, perhaps,/As have no slight or trivial influence/On that best portion of a good man's life,/His little, nameless, unremembered, acts/Of kindness and of love . . .."
~William Wordsworth, "Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey" lines 4-14, 22-35

"Once in his life a man ought to concentrate his mind upon the remembered earth, I believe. He ought to give himself up to a particular landscape in his experience, to look at it from as many angles as he can, to wonder about it, to dwell upon it. He ought to imagine that he touches it with his hands at every season and listens to the sounds that are made upon it. He ought to imagine the creatures that are there and all the faintest motions in the wind. He ought to recollect the glare of noon and all of the colors of dawn and dusk."

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with thing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort." ~The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

" 'Bother burgling and everything to do with it! I wish I was at home in my nice hole by the fire, with the kettle just beginning to sing!" It was not the last time that he wished that!" ~The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

"So ended the adventures of the Misty Mountains. Soon Bilbo's stomach was feeling full and comfortable again, and he felt he could sleep contentedly, though really he would have liked a loaf and butter better than bits of meat toasted on sticks. He slept curled up on the hard rock more soundly than ever he had done on his feather-bed in his own little hole at home. But all night he dreamed of his own house and wandered in his sleep into all his different rooms looking for something that he could not find nor remember what it looked like." ~The Hobbit by J.R.R.

a letter without postmark

Dear producers of The Hobbit and other concerned parties, 

There are innumerable reasons why I have a strong disliking for your artistic representation of the beloved story originally compiled by Mr. Tolkien. However, there is really no need to list all of them as it will not change anything for you (plural) or me. 

I really just have one simple request. 

Would you please record the rest of the Misty Mountains song?

I really loved your composition and arrangement (and lots of other musical terms I don't quite understand), but when I make some tea and find a warm blanket and play the version from the soundtrack, it is over before my tea is even cool enough to start drinking which is hardly helpful when trying to set a mood for an evening (or afternoon or morning for that matter).

I would be willing to reconcile a few of my differences (I can't promise all of them) if you would just record the rest of song (i.e. all of the verses written by Mr. Tolkien in the actual story with the title "The Hobbit").

that's all,

"Generations are amazing measures of time -- overlapping, merging, each new one dependent on the past ones for very existence; affecting each other, passing genes to the next ones, influencing coming one both during a lifetime and after a lifetime is over. There is a terrific responsibility we have during our lifetime: 'The living, the living -- they praise you as I am doing today; fathers tell their children about your faithfulness' (Isaiah 38: 19, NIV). How many generations are being talked about? Children become fathers for century following century: 'He is the Lord our God . . . He remembers his covenant forever, the world he commanded, for a thousand generations . . .' (Psalm 105:7-8, NIV). With which generation will the responsibility stop? Certainly not the one we are in today . . . unless 'today' is the day Jesus will return. Until that moment, until that 'twinkling of an eye,' we are to 'walk around the reality of God's Word and His Works' in a way which seems to me to described in Psalm:12-14 (NIV): 'Walk around Zion, go around her, count her towers, consider well her ramparts, view her citadels, that you may tell of them to the next generation. For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.' "
~Edith Schaeffer, The Tapestry (pg. 101) 

College students have a great tendency towards getting caught up in their own lives (which is only further fueled by the culture). 
What will happen to me in the few years? What will my career be? Will my life be "successful"?
In this though, we start to become oblivious to the beauty of generations.
Our lives are most beautiful as we interact with and enrich other lives. Our lives are most beautiful as we learn from those who have gone before us and pass along to those who follow after us. Our lives were never meant to be independent.

on your toes

Did you know that walking on your toes requires 83% more energy than walking "normally"? 

The study that determined this was actually comparing toe-to-heel walking to heel-to-toe walking to "prancing on ones' toes", but it still totally relates to ballet because, even in flat shoes, 
dancers have to walk toe-to-heel and prance.

Today in 21st Century Literature we discussed Graphic Novels. We were then given a short amount of time to create our own panel in the style of a graphic novel that portrayed our personal ethnic heritage. For the most part I am a product of the Great American Melting Pot. However, some small aspects of my parents' heritage still color their behaviors and preferences. So . . . this is what I drew :)

I chose to make the setting the kitchen because this where such encounters occurred, but also because much of family life and many of my childhood memories took place in the kitchen. My mom has quite a bit of Italian in her and she is always telling my siblings and me that you can put garlic in almost any dish :P My dad has quite a bit of Scottish in him and he doesn't talk nearly as much as my mom, but he often plays music that includes bagpipes. In past couple of years, he has played it on his smart phone, but, in our old house, we used to have a boom box in the kitchen for playing music :)
