Blogging is really hard, but if you have a fancy phone that takes pictures, then you can upload said pictures and not write anything...and more people will follow you because your new blog no longer requires mental taxation.

Approach My Soul The Mercy Seat

Approach my soul the Mercy Seat
Where Elohim and the illicit meet
There fall before my Judge's feet
Thy promises my only plea,
Oh God.

Send wings to lift the clutch of sin
You who dwell between the cherubim
From war without, and fear within,
relieve the grief from the shoulders of crumbling men

Oh God, pour out your clemency to me
My God oh what striking love to bleed

Fashion this heart in Your alchemy
with the brass to front the devil's perjury
and sure fire grace my Jesus speaks
I must I will I do believe,
Oh God.

Oh God, pour out your clemency to me
My God oh what striking love to bleed.

Based on the Hymn by John Newton, adapted by Jamie Barnes. Listen with a humble heart.

Engagement Photos

I recently got a girl to agree to marry me(man her hair looks good in that pic...! especially juxtaposed with my nasty self). We didn't think we'd get engagement pictures because of money issues, but one of our friends, Joanna Miller volunteered to snap pictures on her fancy camera for free. She did a good job. I'm thankful for her taking the time to capture some photons.some of my fav's:

Oh! And Kenny and Kristin (Smith) had the opportunity to get a wicked awesome photographer, Juan Maclean, who is also my favorite person to drink Elector with. Check out their teaser photos here!

It's proven itself worthy to stay on my google tiled top sites homepage even. You can find most answers you're looking for about the artist at http://xkcd.com/about/ such as what his favorite astronomical entity is. He also hosts a picture gallery of people on roller coasters playing chess inspired by this comic. A recent comic win:

"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. (Proverbs 31:30)"
I picked this verse because I don't use cliche verses often, so when I do, I mean it.
I adore this girl. She's more beautiful with each day.
