It's weird.. somewhat scary.. to look back and see where you've come from. I'm speaking primarily of spiritual journeys, here. I pretty much grew up in the church... I can remember a time when it was just the thing to do... I can also remember when it became real to me for the first time at an ATF way back when... I can remember when I was pretty adamant about issues like music and dating ("no secular!" and "courtship only!" respectively)... Heh, I don't really know where I'm going with this, just kind of typing as I think.
Nowadays, I guess some might say I'm more "desensitized" and maybe they're right, I don't know. For example, those last two things... I no longer have a problem with "secular" music and in fact am usually annoyed by the dichotomy we Christians make in the arts. I still have high standards (typically called "courtship" but call it what you may) as for relationships, but I don't have the overzealous attitude I had about it before. Both of those are good things, IMO.
I don't know... at least looking back I don't have many regrets about things. I feel like I started out "going somewhere" with this, but my thoughts are all diverging and this post could go any which way, or no way at all. I think I'll leave it as is, going with the latter option. Blah, blah, blah.
"Life and love and why
Child, adult, then die..."
"Could it be true
Can life be new
Could it be all that I am is in You
Could it be this
Could it be bliss
Can it be You
Can it be You..."
