Some of my favorite things:
-Jesus Christ (glimpses of the depth of His love and mercy, plus whispers from the Holy Spirit)
-Exercise (soccer, weights, read-walks, running, hiking)
-Sunshine (the warmer, the better)
-Food (esp. Mexican, Japanese, and phở, plus In-n-Out)
-People (all walks of life, whoever wants to have a good conversation)
-Music (esp. 70’s folk, Hillsong, show tunes, and the Wheeland Brothers)
-Nature (esp. mountain forests and ocean adventures)
What are some of yours?
There are the things we talk about.
Then, there are the things we wish we could talk about.
It’s in the moments when we safely experience the latter
that we truly feel free.
Driving home late at night,
I think the conversation we had
I really could have talked for hours
thank you for your open heart
There is a time for much company,
for cross-table chats and boisterous behavior;
then there is time for small rooms, intimate ventures,
quiet, soulful conversations
Now, I think, is the time for the latter
conversation is a dying art.
Let’s breathe new life upon it,
Two of my favorite things in life
are a great conversation
matched with a wonderful hug.
Both of these are a gift
and require mutual adoration
in a world of grease and metal
is a saving grace,
a flower sprouting
from the asphalt.
