Suffrage

I live in America
In strange ideas
In stranger times
I've no idea
What's right sometimes


-Sufjan Stevens, The Upper Peninsula [mp3]



I've come to believe in my short 33 years on this earth that the fate of our world lies less in the decision we make on a day such as this, and more in the decisions we make on a daily basis about how we choose to live our lives. And I'm not a model of a person making these daily decisions, but at least my eyes have been opened and I'm striving to make some necessary changes. So, "choose today whom you will serve...but as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord."

thanks for the (not-so-gentle) reminder.

what truly matters?

follow christ. that is the only thing.

right now my sandals aren't dirty enough.

but regardless - whatever dust that covers me should be that of my savior, not of my political party of choice.
