On Longing, Satisfaction, And Love

My soul today is thirsting for living streams divine,
To sweep from highest Heaven to this poor heart of mine;
I stand upon the promise, in Jesus’ Name I plead;
O send the gracious current to satisfy my need.

Like a mighty sea, like a mighty sea,
Comes the love of Jesus sweeping over me;
The waves of glory roll, the shouts I can’t control;
Comes the love Jesus sweeping o’er my soul.

- A.I. Zelley and Henry L. Gilmour, "Like A Mighty Sea"

On Dumb But Honest

Vaughn to Annie:

I see it when you smile and I want to sing a song

But then I sing a song and they always come out wrong

They come out wrong

I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes

But then words get frozen in my mouth like eskimos

I like your nose

On The Church And Men

"They don't look like church boys, wearing sweater vests and walking around singing love songs to Jesus. Guys like David are known for slaughtering other men."

On Brilliance, Vision And Insanity

My film is not about vietnam; it is vietnam. It's what it was really like -it was crazy. And the way we made it was very much like the Americans' were in Vietnam. We were in the jungle, there were too many of us, we had access too much money, too much equipment, and little by little... we went insane.

- Francis Coppola, Cannes Film Festival, 1979.

On Oranges, Oreos, And Love

Two important conversations with two important women in my life. Lord I am thankful for their loving heart to forgive and to renew their relationships' with me. As Christ loves us, let us love one another.

Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.

- 1Peter 4:8

On Election, Joy, Glory, Love And The Supremacy Of Christ

Jesus makes clear the connections between election, glory, love, the joy of heaven and the supremacy of Christ for us. Jesus prayed:

Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
- John 17:24

On Ancient Regimes And The Obama Administration

"It is epitomised above all by the President’s relentless drive towards big government against the will of the American people, and the dramatic increases in government spending and borrowing, which threaten to leave the US hugely in debt for generations. It is also showcased by Barack Obama’s drive towards a socialised health care system, which, as I’ve noted before, is 'a thinly disguised vanity project for a president who is committed to transforming the United States from the world’s most successful large-scale free enterprise economy, to a highly interventionist society with a massive role for centralized government.'"

On Economics, Liberals, And Thieves

"A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which he proposes to pay off with your money."

On Big Government, Slavery, And Obamacare

Interesting connections that the congressman only affirmed; if she is right, all those for social justice needs to reevaluate their stance on obamacare.
