Burnt Island

I am an unworthy partaker in the glory of God. Enjoy with me.

  • Tuna sandwich (with crushed red pepper) plus Seagram’s ginger ale and some essential little (in stature) books, with some amazing music in the background.

  • The simple things carry such beauty.

    (More about that ring in a later post.)

  • I have decided that the only way I will have a dog of my own in the soon-to-come, or very distant future, is if I remain a single guy for a very long time (by choice), and want a dog around for a companion. Like Momo!

  • Love isn’t about what you’re feeling, or what you’re thinking in this moment. Love isn’t just another emotion clamoring for attention in your cluttered mind. Thoughts and emotions are unsteady, crumbling. But love is concrete. Love is a decision. Choosing to be there, sacrifice yourself, no matter what — because no matter what, Jesus is there, and He sacrificed Himself. Love is the closest we come to being like Christ. Love is unchanging, for ever, beyond time and into eternity. It isn’t earned or deserved, but a product of grace. Love is of God; flawless, perfect.

    Mimic Him, beloved, and you will know love.

  • Played some pool with Pops this lovely Sunday afternoon — we have a table in our basement. I beat him five games to one — though admittedly two of those wins were from his scratching. Still, I honestly don’t think I’ve ever played so well against my old man; he’s slow and steady!
