whoops

go listen to the Next messages. NOOOOOOW.
During DA Carson's message he read this poem that he wrote... i loved it so much that i wanted you all to see it as well. It is on the next blog. as well as justin taylors

Before there was a universe,

  Before a star or planet,
  When time had still not yet begun—

  I scarcely understand it—
  Th’ eternal Word was with his God,

  God’s very Self-Expression;
  Th’ eternal Word was God himself—

  And God had planned redemption.


  The Word became our flesh and blood—

  The stuff of his creation—
  The Word was God, the Word was flesh,

  Astounding incarnation!
  But when he came to visit us,

  We did not recognize him.
  Although we owed him everything

  We haughtily despised him.


  In days gone by God showed himself

  In grace and truth to Moses;
  But in the Word of God made flesh

  Their climax he discloses.
  For grace and truth in fullness came

  And showed the Father’s glory
  When Jesus donned our flesh and died:

  This is the gospel story.


  All who delighted in his name,

  All those who did receive him,
  All who by grace were born of God,

  All who in truth believed him—
  To them he gave a stunning right:

  Becoming God’s dear children!
  Here will I stay in grateful trust;

  Here will I fix my vision.


  Before there was a universe,

  Before a star or planet,
  When time had still not yet begun—

  I scarcely understand it—
  Th’ eternal Word was with his God,

  God’s very Self-Expression;
  Th’ eternal Word was God himself—

  And God had planned redemption.

today i went to the pool for the first time this summer. YAAAYYY! I introduced new-roomie Renae to the tradition of hitting up Sonic post-pool. 
So, i used one of those spray sunscreens today. i am normally pretty good at those. and i got ALMOST everywhere. I got a little trigger happy on my shoulder, and kinda negelcted the rest of it. So now i have a super pale spot surrounded by pink. It looks pretty awesome. I keep laughing when i see it.

new favorite thing to do: listen to 80s-90s power ballads. I had some Bad English, Journey, Peter Cetera and REO Speedwagon going earlier. It makes me want to be in a music video. with hair constantly blowing in a breeze. Even when indoors. And the streets will always be wet, as if it just rained. Even when the sun is out. And neon lights reflecting everywhere. And a key-tar. *AHEMJORDANKAUFLIN*
