simplicity

6.18.2012

There are some things extremely sweet and savory about simplicity.  Like a light colored room with a random splash of color.  Like a stroll on a bike across an old country road.  Like a smile from a child. Or a happy family gathering around a large country table.  Laughter.  Nails without nail polish.  A dumbphone opposed to an iphone.  Tears.  Running barefoot through tall (probably tick-infested) grass.  Long country drives.  Mennonite people.  Smiles from strangers (southern people are really nice).  The sound of a rippling creek.  Daydreaming.  Random walmart excursions.  Washing cups and plates by hand opposed to using a dishwasher.  Bonanza reruns.  Letters in the mail.  Brown paper packages tied with string. 


"There is a certain majesty in simplicity which is far above all the quaintness of wit." -Alexander Pope

365 Days: Week 24

Hello.  This set of pictures may be a tad monotonous as I got randomly obsessed with the sun and sun rays and the like. So, enjoy!

questions.

6.10.2012
Sometimes I wonder.

My mind wanders and wanders into strange places. Places where questions have no answers. Why do good men fall while the monster still stands? Why do horrendous things happen to people who are innocent while the wicked stand in triumph?

Brooke Fraser, a singer and songwriter, wrote a song once called Albertine. About the genocide that took place in Rwanda. The song is about a girl named Albertine, who lost her entire family during this tragedy.

This story and so many more like it fill me with so much passion and sadness. Especially when I squirm and complain about the smallest things in life. Turning my shoulder to stories like these. Peeling my eyes away from such atrociousness. And when I do finally look back and see and watch, my entire being cringes and knots. And I feel like nothing but a speck of dust; Because I've turned a deaf ear and a blind eye.





I don't have the answers to my above questions. I don't have any knots to disentangle. But I do know that one day the last shall be first and that justice will be done. Thank you Jesus!
