I think maybe this is getting out of fashion, but once again, I apologize for not posting in what seems like forever. Maybe someday you'll understand. :) First off, I never realized how much time a full-time job required. :) I'm busy, and when I get home from work nights, I don't feel like sitting down and writing a blog post, even when it's to my beloved readers. The weekends haven't yet been normal, as I've been her for only two so far, the first weekend my first here, and the second weekend kept me busy doing homework and hanging out with friends. So. I'm here, on a Friday night, taking some time to tell you that I'm not going to post the continuation of the series I started 3-4 weeks ago. No, I don't have the inspiration for that...instead, I'm posting something I wrote recently that I hope you will enjoy. Soon I hope to post more about my summer, my current life, and trademark PMRL posts, such as poetry and music posts. :) Until then, let me know what you think about this. I call it the Propper-upper:

Lying here on the bed, propping up more than just my frame on the frame, I think about how things were just 5 days ago, days that seem forever ago. Why do things that are good for us always seem to be so hard? The fan whirls in unending circles, forcing the pages of the calendar to move away from the wall, and back towards it again, over and over. Is that what will happen to us? Will we get close, and be pushed away? Will we always “beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past?” No, we won’t, but right now it’s easy to listen to the lies of discontentment in my head, to think about how much better it could be right now. I know what I need to do, to remember Who it is who “keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love Him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.” Too many times I’m absorbed in the “I,” and forget the “You.” You are the One who loves perfectly, forgives completely, and will never, ever, change. My life will change, my situations will change, but if I find my meaning in You, I can be content in that, knowing that where I am is where You have me.

  2. So good, Mr. Peter. So glad to see you propped up in faith. We're fighting alongside of you, from a couple hundred miles away. Keep doing the good, hard thing you know to do! And I'll do the same as I meet with struggles up here. Love you, brother.
