pure joy

(via classical-kit)

These days I just can’t seem to say what I mean. I just can’t. Every time I try to say something, it misses the point. Either that or I end up saying the opposite of what I mean. The more I try to get it right the more mixed up it gets. Sometimes I can’t even remember what I was trying to say in the first place. It’s like my body’s split in two and one of me is chasing the other me around a big pillar. We’re running circles around it. The other me has the right words, but I can never catch her.
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

(via 1924us)

A good man is hard to find. His wife trusts him without reserve and never has
reason to regret it. Never spiteful, he showers blessings all of his life long.

He enjoys his work, pursuing a meaningful vocational existence, and seeks
God’s purpose.

He doesn’t waste time on temporal pleasures such as Modern Warfare or
Breaking Bad. Instead, he gets his lazy backside up and studies the Word
and prays for his family before he organizes his day.

He doesn’t squander his money on frivolous things like gambling or stupid
gadgets. Rather, he invests in things that last: his children’s education,
something beautiful for his wife, and a thoughtful retirement plan.

He senses the worth of his work but knows when it’s time to go home and
see his family.

He doesn’t slough off home repairs and at least tries to fix the garbage disposal;
he mows his own yard, modeling what it means to find the joy in agency.

He’s quick to assist anyone in need and reaches out to help the poor.

He doesn’t worry about his family when it snows. He’s prepared—he’s done
his due diligence.

He’s greatly respected when he deliberates with community leaders.

He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. He tries to change his brake pads and
enjoys whittling wood.

He looks sharp and dresses appropriately for the occasion without
relinquishing who he is at his core.

When he speaks he does so with language that uplifts. He doesn’t use coarse
talk because he thinks it’s cool. He employs discernment and always speaks
with kindness.

He’s the head of his household but rules with deft discernment—
understanding the value that Christ rules it all and the importance of what
it means for his wife to be co-equal.

His children respect and bless him; his wife joins in with words of praise:
“Many men have done wonderful things, but you’ve outclassed them all!”

He handles influence, which can mislead, and understands that power soon fades.

The man to be admired and praised is the man who lives in the fear of God.

Little world, full of little people
shouting for recognition, screaming for love,
Rolling world, teeming with millions,
carousel of the hungry,
Is there food enough? Wheat and corn will not do.
The fat are the hungriest of all, the skinny the most silent.

If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how - the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what’s said against me won’t amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.

hate blows a bubble of despair into
hugeness world system universe and bang
-fear buries a tomorrow under woe
and up comes yesterday most green and young.

When temptation has an easier way –

When you’re tired

When you’re alone

When you’re sick

When your spiritual life is dry

When peer pressure is strong

Are any of distractions causing you to fall into temptation?

Beware.

I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ Himself.

If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up — to know that there’s life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can’t find it anywhere else.
