Sunny with a chance of rain.

"To live amid lax words and dim thoughts more or less translatable into concreteness depletes energy and deadens the joy of life."

practical application: A man who says "precipitation probability is twenty percent" is less alive than if he had said and felt "a small chance of rain."

we are suffocated by analytic abstractions of innumerable activities.
statistics. indexes. ratings.
the figures are definite. their worth often indefinite.
correlation does not imply causal relation.
especially of the human heart.
we are conditional.

i am a conditional lover. i have encountered an Unconditional Lover who is the Christ.
He is showing me how to NOT put conditions on my love.

  1. Trav! This is good! The Lord is walking me through this "unconditional love" thing too...Praise God for his example to us of what that looks like and praise him for his daily patience with us as we frequently mess up in this! One day, with His CONSTANT help, we'll get it. :) Love and miss you friend!
