Written in July

Months ago I was visiting my sister in another state. I met some really cool people while I was there, and most likely I won't see any of them again. I wrote this after a really cool experience, but never posted it. So here it is now.

One Sunday while I was visiting, we were at church, my sister goes to a pretty big church, you know one with a main floor and a big balcony type second story to fit more people. And this awesome worship song was on, I had never heard it before. Although now I've heard it and sung it many times:

"Our God is greater
 Our God is stronger
 God you are Higher than any other
 Our God is Healer
 Awesome in Power
 Our God
 Our God"
- Chris Tomlin, Our God

For the first time I got a glimpse of Heaven. Every christian I have ever met will be there, even the ones I only knew for a few minutes or days. And we will be really worshiping. Truly truly. Full of God's love for him and for each other.

I know there are negative thoughts that can branch off of that. And questions and details. And perhaps it is a little disconnected for your topic. But it is the story that came to mind with this post. There is so much soft, powerful, joy in this memory for me. I hope it comes across at least a little.

Think about it in terms of you, all the people you love terribly, and your best worship memory. Blend it together with whatever strongest sense of God's presence you can think of. That was my taste of heaven.

Which maybe makes it a little more okay to say goodbye sometimes.

I mean Really Truly.

And observe the world around you?

Recent Musing #4

My walls are covered with the past, because I haven't figured out how to hang the future.

He guilted you. Told you off mildly, but in this public way. And you just sat and held your face. No reaction until you formulated how to show regret.
Almost like you didn't know what he was talking about.
But really, you just didn't know what to say.

Formerly Recent Musings #3

We were just two souls in the dark
Your voice and mine
Only lips and ears.
I'm glad it was us
There together,
Hearing and speaking
The truest of true


If you knew me you would see. The way my face is overcompensating for interest in your words. The way I keep scrunching my eyes and blinking smiles. Nodding too much. I am being polite, I wish I did care, so I keep up the act. But behind it all I wish you would leave. Just say you have things to do, and walk away.
