I like Albert Einstein. He said things like "Never underestimate your own ignorance" and "When all think alike, no one thinks very much."

I like G.K. Chesterton. He said things like "If there were no God, there would be no Atheists" and "Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese."

I like Shakespeare. He said things like "The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose" and "I am not bound to please thee with my answers."

I like C. S. Lewis. He said things like "I have found a desire within myself that no experience in this world can satisfy; the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world" and "God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing."

Why exactly am I saying all this? I'm not sure. I was just up and thought I'd say something. And use my nifty Snoopy icon.

But seriously, I can finally say I am at peace about things. Not that everything is "all good", because there is a lot of bad. I am at peace, though, because God is going to take care of it and I'm not going to worry about it. Not saying I'm not going to pray about it; I already have been. God spoke through one of John Piper's messages, and He says I can pester Him about stuff ^_^ For some odd reason, that makes me smile. Maybe I'll post more about that later, but now I need sleep.

I have been very emo over the past month, give or take, and for that, I apologize. If I have offended anyone, I apologize. There's even a part of me that would apologize for being me, or at least the natural me. I want to be the spiritual me always, but that will not happen in this life. I press forward toward that, to get as close to it as I can, but it won't happen. One day, the natural and the spiritual won't be so separate, and to that I say "come quickly, Lord."

And now, some Psalms. Tootles.

Psalm 103 )

Pslam 104 )

Psalm 105 )
