There's something there that wasn't there before...

I found this blog about a month ago and it was so good I read up all the old post as well as subscribed to it in my Google Reader. He's made some great points about the whole silence of the church regarding Juanita Bynum, and got my respect that way. Check it out:

...and feel the breeze and listen to a symphony/Or maybe chill and just be

Wow, I can't even believe this blog has 75 views, I haven't updated in such a long time...and it's pretty boring compared to my other blog!!

well, I'm still doing me...just living life like it's golden. I guess I'll tie in the title of this post somehow. I just am constantly amazed by life. The things you can learn, the people you meet, and the beauty that surrounds us. I mean, there was blizzard-ish weather in my neck of the woods recently is beautiful. Sometimes I find myself just marvelling and the earth around me and I just breathe deep and life seems just a little more beautiful. I go to concerts, plays, exhibits and I think "mankind is so creative, and these artists just pull the beauty out of life and make a little bit more clear". No matter what chaos and craziness I'm going through I can feel a breeze and see the swans in my lagoon and I can find that moment of peace and "all right-ness".

I know...I sound kind of hippie-ish but, whatever. we all have our moments :)

Speak words of beauty and you will be there

"...what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil"
-The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark (Act 3, Scene 1)

I've been wondering a lot about what it means to stop act towards your dreams instead.

I once told a mentor of mine some ideas and aspirations I had and she was so supportive, I said "yeah, they're Big God dreams". My desires for life require a faith in a Big God... in El Shaddai, in Almighty God, 'cause that the only way it's gonna happen.

It's daunting sometimes when I think about it. What it would mean...because before I was preparing towards working on it. And now I'm at that step where I can stop preparing towards working and I should just start working on seeing my dream come to fruition, and it's terrifying quite frankly. It's at this point that I realize how big it is. How nearly impossible it is....nearly.

That's what moving forward means. It means taking off that "mortal coil" and stepping into your supernatural destiny. It's a's like jumping off a cliff in order to find out if you can fly. For some people the dare is in dreaming at all, and I guess for me...the dare is in "what if"? What if I see this dream become reality? I don't need to dare to dream...I need to dare to live.

And it's just step one really,it's just part one of a three parter. But man, dang if it isn't the hardest part. But...what if I do it? Oh, what dreams may come when I have shuffled off this mortal coil...
