"Who did you love before me...No-one!...and after...No-one!"

Sorry people, I had to put a quote from the most recent movie I've seen in theaters...Tristan & Isolde. Which I would have to say, was awesome. I loved was super great, super romantic, super battle-like. It just had so much to satisfy so many moviegoers. But I only ramble.

So I hope everyone is doing well. I'm doing alright. I've had a lot on my mind lately. Let me just tell ya some about it!

Right now, I'm currently enjoying the listening pleasures (and somewhat viewing pleasures) of Comedy Central's Stand-Up Comedy Showdown...simply entertaining. I just wish I wouldn't have missed Dane Cook, he is my favorite. I'm also thinking and conjuring up thoughts on various other subjects. Lately the subject of solitude and loneliness has been on my mind. With the concluding idea that I am lonely, and I know it. But...I am able to overcome and deal with it. I know that things will change inevitably, but while they are the same as now...I will live.

Another thought lingering through my infinite brainwaves is one recently put in by my roomie. Camping!! I want to go camping, I want to hang out with my closest friends and just have some quality bonding time and create amazing memories and just absolutely bask in the glory of friendship. I love it! Plus with the whole ideas of graduation and "life" peering it's head around the corner, I'm compelled to do memorable things in life. I want to do something spontaneously planned?!

CRU last week discussed the idea of solitude and silence. This concept is just incredible. The idea of growing closer to God through solitude and silence, the idea of pouring ourselves before the Father in Heaven, the idea of turning off our computers, our cell phones, our ipods, the idea that should be a reality. The idea of...focus, the idea of...complete reverence, the idea of...pure community, where everything fades away except for the communion with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. How can I fear silence? I feel that if I fear silence and solitude, I Father, my Savior, my Guiding Light.

"Nothing is so insufferable to man as to be completely at rest, without
passions, without business, without diversion, without study. He then feels his nothingness, his forlornness, his insufficiency, his dependence, his weakness, his emptiness. There will immediately arise from the depth of his heart weariness, gloom, sadness, fretfulness, vexation, despair."--Blaise Pascal

destiny, now i'm worried about you.

not that having alone time is bad for you, of course. i encourage it. but for someone to say that they're lonely, now i feel sad.

now, tell me, are you involved in fellowship? what, specifically, are you doing in a regular basis with other christians? i know i'm getting intrusive here, and sorry, but i feel we need to be involved in the local church and the local church needs to be involved in us, y'know?
