He loves me with an everlasting love. Nothing I can do or say will ever sway the power of his love for me. He thinks of me night and day. He showers me with little gifts just because it makes his heart glad to see my smile. He is jealous of the things that take me away from him.

I have rejected him. I've run from him. I've left his body full of scars.
And still he loves me.
When I leave him, those arms that ached on the cross ache to hold me close.
His hands, the hands that I wounded, long to touch me with healing and comfort.

His love for me is so strong he would kill for me.

He did kill for me.
His own Self. His own Son. He made a sacrifice of his own flesh and blood.
So that I would know his love.

And then he conquered Death!
His love is so powerful that it shattered the reign of Death so that I could be with him!
Not only for proof of his love and power, but to give me the ability to share in it.

How can I not love Him?

This is the greatest story of love ever written. This man, my Lord, who is Love Himself, wants nothing so much as for me to be caught up with him in this beautiful extravagance of love. To share in his life. To share in his power. To know and be known.

He is beautiful. And I love him.

Four Eyes!

Hallo there!
Sorry for being such a bad blogger.
The summer has just been too fun for me to blog it all. Sad, yes, because now I don't have records of all my adventures. However, just living life has been great.

What brings me here today is my excitement.
"About what?" you say.
About my new glasses!

I've had the same glasses for at least 4 years. I only wear them when I can't wear my contacts. They've gotten all crooked, and I still feel partially blind when I wear them. Sooooo, last week I finally went and had an exam and ordered some new ones!

I had fallen in love with a pair of cheap, nerdy frames at Wal-Mart when I was killing time a week or so before. I decided I must have them.

The lady at Wal-Mart chuckled. Then she laughed at me outright. Then she tried in vain to get me to change my mind. "Kids these days," she muttered as she shook her head. She laughed again when I handed her my prescription. I stood my ground.


YAY! Cute nerd glasses! It's ok if you don't like them. You're not the only one. ;-) They're certainly not as classy and smart-looking as my old pair. But it's fun to be so in love with something that you don't even care if other people think you look like an idiot. haha!

I just picked them up this morning, and I'm wearing them right now (gotta break 'em in, you know). I think I know now why she laughed again and raised her eyebrows when she saw my prescription. You can't really tell in the picture, but I believe the technical term is "coke bottle glasses." Therefore, I have this odd sensation of everything in my peripheral vision being curved. Unless I'm looking at something head-on, it's curvy. WEIRD! Walking down the hallway, it looks like the walls are curving toward me! So yeah. I'm guessing that's why she was so amused. It's a good thing I'll still mostly be wearing my contacts. However, besides for things being curvy and skewed, I can see very clearly. With my old glasses, things beyond about 4 feet away were still blurry. I can look out the window right now and see the next house no problem. Which rocks, let me tell you.

So, really, that's all. I just wanted to share.
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend, y'all.
