The Gospel-Centered Marriages for a Glorious Church Conference and other recent events

I figure I might as well start this post before it becomes too far in the past; I'll write more as I can.

Late last month, my family and I traveled to the Gospel-Centered Marriages for a Glorious Church Conference in Asheville, NC. It took around ten hours to get to the conference center, but we arrived without any major casualties.

[I just decided to majorly condense this since if I don't I doubt I'll ever finish it.]

There were lots of good talks at the conference, including a very powerful one given by Paul Washer, who always gives moving messages.

A Broken Heart

A Broken Heart These fragile hearts So easily broken But so hard to mend Once wounded Will carry a scar Though the pain may fade The memory remains All along You had a porcelain heart The focus could be better (I need to try with a tripod instead of handheld so I can use a smaller aperture), the composition could use improvement (too close-up), and there are doubtless other things I should fix if I try to redo this shot later. I might have used an actual porcelain heart for this had I had one, but I might have to have it broken for the theme and I would really not want to do that. An expensive camera and lenses and mad editing skills (plus knowing more about and just being good at photography in general would be nice, but I don't have those, so those things are a few reasons why my photos aren't breathtaking...I just have to work with what I have now. Bleh, the text formatting is all messed up for some reason. Click on the photo to see how what the words are supposed to look like.

Two Swords

There are two kinds of warfare: physical and spiritual.
Make sure you have weapons for both.

I Am Here, I Am There, I Am Nowhere Worth Noting

I have nothing to write, nowhere to go, nothing to do...
Actually, that's not exactly true.
Where am I going, what am I doing, who am I being?
My dad bought a 2004 VW R32, so I can now try to sell my M3...back to a slow, cheap car for me now, 
it seems.
There's not much else worth telling at the moment.

One man's trash is another man's treasure; one person's pain is another's pleasure, some are poor but have wealth beyond measure...
Random, very random. And perhaps slightly bizarre. 
I'll try to write something more coherent - and something that might actually be worth reading - soon. 

A photo I took with my iPhone and edited with the Snapseed app:

Granted, this is a love song and as such doesn't have very deep lyrics, but I find it both very haunting and beautiful:
You might want to check out the rest of Sleepthief's music...I discovered it on Pandora and now really like some of it; perhaps you will too.
