merry christmas everyone!
(or whatever winter holiday you're celebrating)
I'm not perfect, nor will I ever be. I struggle with stuff everyone else in the world struggles with. I'm human, and I'll never be able to change that. But, as a Christian who truly has a relationship with Christ I try my best to emulate Him, and He never discriminated, and never treated people differently because of who their families were, or where they were from. Christ didn't discriminate against other beliefs, plain as that. He loved the people, not what they did. That's how I want to be.And that's how *I* want to be too, even if I'll never be convinced that the world was created for humans alone, or that Jesus Christ was the son of God. It doesn't mean I don't have respect for who he was. In fact, sometimes the fact that I believe he was just a man makes me all the more in awe of what he did and what he believed. I don't need God to pray. Or to believe in miracles.
"...she that from whomWhat's past is prologue. Story of my life, and of a lot of people's lives, I expect. This idea is probably most poignantly related to one person's life. The idea that what's passed is merely the prelude of what is to come. How often do I wish to structure my life in such a manner, for everything I've experienced to simply be the exposition of my own adventure tale? Most days.
We all were sea-swallow'd, though some cast again
(And by that destiny) to perform an act
Whereof what's past is prologue; what to come,
In yours and my discharge."
"There's just nowhere else I'd rather be than Traverse City. Waking up at 6:45 a.m. and getting the crap beat out of you on the ice by opposing players just trying to make a living. That's how I know that I'm back for good." -- Stefan LegeinThat's how I know he's back on the right path, kind of the same way I've finally found my own path (however much I have to hack through the creative thicket with my own, personal machete). And I couldn't be happier for him.
