Music: Bach cello suites <3

What do you write in a blog?
i cant say anything terribly interesting has happened that requires your attention to this ill just talk about nothing.

how pretentious of me!

[the word of the day is pretentious...
1. Claiming or demanding a position of distinction or merit, especially when unjustified.
2. Making or marked by an extravagant outward show; ostentatious.

All too often i act pretentious; it spills from my lips, wafts from my air, shoots from my eyes in fiery darts of condescension for the meek.....i wish i were meek. and not pretentious, i hate it. ok, enough]

on a brighter note:
"Was ever rebellious sinner so courted, in sighs, in groans, in blood, of an expiring God? Did ever pity this stoop, to gain the heart of such a devil? How my soul is melted! How it yields to thine almighty love! how much sweeter thy promises, than honey to my taste! oh! how they sink to the very centre of my heart! CONTENT, a thousand times content, to be an everlasting miracle of thy redeeming grace; content, that God, in saving me, "shew forth, to the ages to come, what is the exceeding riches of his grace," and virtue of his righteousness. Blessed, O Jesus, be thy name, that thou never saidst, Give me a sincere, a pure, a holy, humble heart; but requirest me to give it as it is! But will God indeed dwell in it, and make it a fit habitation for himself through the Spirit? Astonishing condescension! Stupendous love!"
~John Brown of Haddington
