Xander's been officially declared autistic. It's a blow, but seeing as we've been suspecting as much, it's not as  impacting as it could be. And ultimately, it may make it easier to have patience with him when he's proving a bit unmanageable. That is my prayer, at least. I love the little guy, but its so hard to reach into his world. Here's hoping God brings about some breakthroughs. He is the Almighty, after all :)

‎"Speak unto Him for He hears you,
And Spirit with spirit will meet!
Nearer is He than breathing,
Nearer than hands and feet."

I love this visual. I smile every time I read this.

If we're supposed to be "tolerant" and "coexist" and all that jazz, why cant you be tolerant of me if I choose to believe something different than you? Are you only willing to tolerate and coexist with people who share your exact view point? Christ calls us to love, and that's what I strive to do, but loving doesnt mean I agree with how you live your life. I can love without necessarily approving of your lifestyle. I can love without hating you. That's what God does. He loves us, calls us, as we are, in all of our ickiness, to be HIS--but not to STAY THE SAME OR STAY IN OUR SIN. He says "come and be changed", "come and sin no more". I am not perfect. Neither are you. But I love you, in spite of my opinions on how you live your life, because Christ loves me. Because He loves me, I am able to love you. Why cant you return the gesture? Where's the love?

"We cannot fight for love, as men may do.
 We should be wooed, and were not made to woo."

Sometimes I find myself sitting in my car, listening to slow songs by Death Cab and trying desperately to feel something.

a funny conversation between two friends of mine:

Kevin: I somehow shaved 3:30 off of my mile and a half time. I've run once since the last time I had to do it. Hipster miracle...?
Kyle: Hipsters don't run...unless they are trying to get to a free Arcade Fire show.
Kevin: Bon Iver. Free PBR. Free flannel. 50% off sale at Urban. Buy one get one vinyl. Free Polaroid cameras. New organic fruit market. Free fixed gear bicycles. Some pointless cause that requires them talking about but not actually doing anything. IPhone 5.
A random list of other things hipsters would run to/for.
