By Josh Garrels

Had a dream I was alone
A vast expanse of complete unknown
Sea of glass so clear it shown,
Like gold
Then a voice like thunder clapped,
As a dead man I collapsed
I am the first, I am the last,
Now rise my son

Then behold ten thousand kings,
and every creature worshipping
Every eye was on one thing,
One man
He's like a lion like a lamb,
As though slain he holds the plan
To make war and peace with man,
And reign on earth

Holy, Holy, is the One,
Who was and is, and is to come
In a robe as red as blood,
He comes forth
Ride like lightening in the sky,
Upon the war horse he draws nigh,
The same one we crucified,
Will come again

Boxes aren't for me.

I wasn’t made to fit in any man’s box. I think that’s why I feel like my heart is suffocated when I try to. The pain of watering down my dreams is more painful than being judged for dreaming them and the pain of not dreaming them at all is greater than the pain of dreaming dreams and not having them come to pass. Although both pains are great.  My body aches from trying to fit into man’s mold…I think that’s because I was never fashioned to fit it. The more I grow the more I hate the status quo. I woke up this morning- my head full of possibilities. I just have to run deeper, I can’t camp out and stay where I’ve been… I don’t want to and even if no one runs with me I’ll go anyways because even if no one else comes that is no excuse not to go at all.  

I listened to Brooke Fraser this moring, ate some blueberries, watered my flowers, and was thankful for the future. I am realizing there are deeper levels of freedom than I origanlly thought...and it tates so sweet.

I made this last night and it was so good! So I thought I would share. It's SO easy and it's a great side dish for the summer time!

  • 8  oz. Strawberries
  • 8  oz. shell pasta, cooked, rinsed and cooled
  • 8  oz. fresh mozzarella balls, drained
  • 1/4 cup slivered fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup slivered red onion
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette 
  1. Rinse, hull and quarter strawberries.  
  2. Combine strawberries, pasta, mozzarella, basil and onion in a large bowl. (Can be prepared to this point and refrigerated until ready to serve.)  
  3. Drizzle with vinaigrette and mix gently until ingredients are well coated.
    I LOVE summer! :)
