Waiting, waiting, always waiting...

True worth is in being, not seeming,— 
In doing, each day that goes by, 
Some little good—not in dreaming
Of great things to do by and by. 

Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;
I rave no more 'gainst time or fate,
For lo! my own shall come to me.

We cannot make bargains for blisses,
Nor catch them like fishes in nets; 
And sometimes the thing our life misses
Helps more than the thing which it gets.

I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace?
I stand amid the eternal ways,
And what is mine shall know my face.

For good lieth not in pursuing,
Nor gaining of great nor of small, 
But just in the doing, and doing
As we would be done by, is all.

What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming years;
My heart shall reap where it hath sown,
And garner up its fruit of tears.

Through envy, through malice, through hating,
Against the world, ,early and late.
No jot of our courage abating
Our part is to work and to wait.

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
...Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son!

La di dah...

Hey there.

Sorry about not blogging for a while.  There hasn't really been much to talk about (that's a blatant lie, there's a million things to talk about but I've been preoccupied).

Well, I guess I start off by saying that I went to Summit again.

Absolutely incredible.  I met a million new people and all of them were precious and I learned so much more than last year (which is saying something because I learned SO MUCH last year).  I got to meet my lovely internet friend Eri whom I love more than life itself and I can say that she's the cutest person IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE oh my goodness.  Seriously.

Struggling right now with how to turn my convictions into action because I'm the laziest most unproductive person in the whole world and I'm the queen of wasted time.

I'm going to college, though.  A Bible college, for a degree in biblical counselling. Orientation is the 23rd.

Look at me, all grown up.

I go from excited to apprehensive, from terrified to apathetic.

I am truly a beast of many emotions.

Speaking of emotions, I saw The Amazing Spiderman.

I cried more than 6 times.




Haven't seen Batman yet.  I was going to threaten you if you spoil it before I see it but there should be no jokes about violence and that film ever again.

Oh, the depths of human depravity.

There were babies in that theatre.  Little babies, little kids, precious impressionable human being, being subjected to watch a fellow human being reduce their friends, their families, the man in front of them into nothing but bleeding bodies, completely empty of all the glorious life we have within us.  Little babies, watching this violence.  Little babies, being shot.


My heart is heavy right now.

And I can listen to Cher Lloyd and pretend like everything is okay and laugh and poke fun at all my friends but the fact is, people died, and people die every day, and it's not okay.

It's just not okay with me.

Apologies.  Like I said, my heart is just heavy right now.

How far heaven is from this poor, decrepit world!
