Balance is an impossible task for me to perform. It seeks to undermine all I do, by slipping away as a will o' the wisp. My mind is filled by all but what's necessary. Duties slip past, my memory fails, yet I'm too stubborn to use any material help. Get with the program buddy.

Conflicting viewpoints can be the most rupturing parts of life. You're taught to perceive life one way, but you learn about the "right" way through the lens of a different world view. I was taught about Jesus all my life, but the way I understood Him was through a modernist view. I didn't take Him for what He was and concentrated on the divinity of His being without understanding His humanity. Not only that, but I've sifted what I believe about Him based on a scientific, Newtonian ideal, which completely skews what He was and now is about. His message was LOVE, the miracles and signs were great, but He came among us, died for us, in order to LOVE on us. This is the Jesus I wish that I'd met from day one.

Should I go for it? Should I jump into the cold small lake in the dead of night, naked as the day of my birth? Yes...yes, I jump and am swallowed. The lake--chill and crisp--welcomes my frame and refreshes me surprises me, delights while nearly killing me. If I knew why my silly delusional mind deemed it wise to embrace the smooth almost icy surface, what use would I have for life? The experiences and failures that pave the road of life define us and guide us. Why deprive my/yourself of these possibilities. Maybe skinny-dipping in the pond of life is what keeps us alive. Will you swim with me?

There's no denying is complicated. You're busy, you have things to do, places to be, people to see. Everything can't be fit into one hour, day, week, but we try and try and try again. What if we just did; what if we didn't worry about how things happened, but that they did? Would we make up time or would we just delude ourselves? Live for others, don't worry about tomorrow...I think some smart guy who loved on mankind first said that. The lives we live are our own and the lives we plan on living never occur. Live for people and everyone will walk all over you, live for your maker and the world will take notice.
