Favorite songs (hymns edition):

--Be Still My Soul
--Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
--Be Thou My Vision
Go read all the lyrics, I dare you.

Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

I tell stories not because I want to find God, but because He's already found me.
I don't think I'll ever really understand.

let your healing hands sweep over me
like the sun’s gentle rays piercing the night
pastel pink and yellow lumbering lazily
through the new morning sky
restore vision to these blind eyes
let me see again
instead of being relegated to the darkness
raise up these dry bones that rattle when i walk
dispel the stench of death that
lingers so heavy on my slumbering soul
revive my broken heart so it beats anew
and teach me to live again
let us wind up the mountain trails and
rest atop the summit
me and you
me a little bruised
and you mending all the scars
watching the sunrise crest the horizon
a purging fire chasing the night into oblivion
