Another post concerning Easterish things.... kinda

 After Jesus had entered Jerusalem, three of the gospels record a certain event immediately following. Jesus goes to the temple.


Palm Sunday

Mon, 04/18/2011 - 09:07 — Carrie

 Easter is my favorite holiday of the whole year. I love Easter. It, and the week preceding, represent the very climax of the Christian faith. Christ's death and resurrection. 

Before we can get to Easter, however, we have Palm Sunday. Some people celebrate Palm Sunday in a huge way. Special music at church, special sermon, etc... At my church, we just pass out palm branches. 

Random Thought

It is easy to be lonely, even when one has many friends, if they hardly ever get to spend real time with those friends in person. 


Life is hard

Life is hard

I won't deny

Pain is real

It's fine to cry

joy will come

and good times, to

though you might wait

a year or two.

With Christ in us

it seems it should

be easy to 

be always good

and easy, too

to always joy

when things go wrong

or life's destroyed.

And yet we find

as time goes on

that joy's elusive,

often gone.

There's so much pain,

there's so much bad,

people die

and we get mad.

Friends are lost,

Personal Reflections

Mon, 02/07/2011 - 16:09 — Carrie

I am an optimist. I am also a procrastinator. 

These two things were recently pointed out to me as being a very bad combination. 

If one is an optimist, they believe that things will work out. If they are a procrastinator, they tend to wait until the last minute to do things. So if I'm a procrastinator optimist, I guess I believe things will happen so much, that I don't ever leave enough time to do them. Yet I believe in their success, anyway. Even when they fail. 

Or something like that.  

A trip to Wichita.... again....

Sat, 01/22/2011 - 09:46 — Carrie

       So yeah, I went to Wichita. The original plan was to go to Wichita, and immediately depart for a ski trip in Colorado. However, through a variety of circumstances, it became quite clear to those of us who were planning the trip that it simply was not the time for it. So I was left with a lovely plane ticket and no ski trip to use it for. 

Keep Your Heart.

  I've been thinking a lot lately about issues of the heart. Proverbs 4:23 says: "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life."

No, I'm not abandoning my blog. Tongue

I hate goodbyes. I hate having to say them. I hate the emotions that go with them. I hate seeing someone else say goodbye and knowing that you're the next one to have to say it. Sometimes, I even hate the hello for the menacing undertone of the impending goodbye. 

I heard a quote once: "How blessed I am to have known some who are so hard to say goodbye to." It's a decent quote, and certainly, I am very thankful for the amazing friends I have... but why must I say goodbye to them so often?
