Wedding Dress

Wedding Dress

Wedding Dress

if you could love me as a wife
and for my wedding gift, your life
should that be all i’ll ever need
or is there more i’m looking for

and should i read between the lines
and look for blessings in disguise
to make me handsome, rich, and wise
is that really what you want

i am a whore i do confess
but i put you on just like a wedding dress
and i run down the aisle
i’m a prodigal with no way home
but i put you on just like a ring of gold
and i run down the aisle to you

so could you love this bastard child
though i don’t trust you to provide
with one hand in a pot of gold
and with the other in your side
i am so easily satisfied
by the call of lovers less wild
that i would take a little cash
over your very flesh and blood

i am a whore i do confess
but i put you on just like a wedding dress
and i run down the aisle
i’m a prodigal with no way home
but i put you on just like a ring of gold
and i run down the aisle to you

because money cannot buy
a husband’s jealous eye
when you have knowingly deceived his wife

What Matters More

What Matters More

You say you always treat people like you like to be
I guess you love being hated for your sexuality
And love when people put words in your mouth
bout what you believe, make you sound like a freak

Cause if you really believed what you say you believe
you wouldn’t be so damn reckless with the words you speak
wouldn’t silently consent when the liars speak
denying all the dying of a remedy

Tell me, brother, what matters more to you?
Tell me, sister, what matters more to you?

If I can tell what’s in your heart by what comes out of your mouth
then it sure looks to me like being straight is all it’s about
yah, it looks like being hated for all the wrong things
and chasing the wind while the pendulum swings

Cause we can talk and debate till we’re blue in the face
about the language and tradition that He’s coming to save
Meanwhile we sit just like we don’t give a shit
about 50,000 people who are dying today

Tell me, brother, what matters more to you?
Tell me, sister, what matters more to you?

Tell me, brother, what matters more to you?
Tell me, sister, what matters more to you?
Tell me, what matters more to you?
Tell me, brother, what matters more to you?

Blue Like Jazz pt 1 March 21, 2009

bluelikejazz_500x200500wtnHey guys, I’m reading a cool book called Blue Like Jazz – Nonreligious Thoughts On Christian Spirituality by Donald Miller. He really is able to put into words things I’ve thought or experienced as well as things I’ve never even though of in that way. I thought I would add some excerpts and talk a bit about them. Donald’s stuff is in blue (aren’t I clever). Here are 3 PDF files: Chapter 1 of Blue Like Jazz, a press kit and a study guide. COOL! Click them to open the file.


Blue Like Jazz Chapter 1

Blue Like Jazz Presskit

Blue Like Jazz – Study Guide


I didn’t feel like I knew God, and yet He was making me experience this conviction (guilt over wrong done etc.) I felt that the least He could have done was to come down and introduce Himself and explain these feelings of conviction in person. If you don’t love somebody, it gets annoying when they tell you what to do or what to feel. When you love them you get pleasure form their pleasure, and it makes it easy to serve. I didn’t love God because I didn’t know Him. Still, I knew, because of my own feelings, there was something wrong with me, and I knew it wasn’t only me. I knew it was everybody. It was like a bacteria or a cancer or a trance. It wasn’t on the skin; it was in the soul. It showed up in loneliness, lust, anger, jealousy, and depression. It had people screwed up bad everywhere you went—at the store, at home, at church; it was ugly and deep. Lots of singers on the radio were singing about it, and cops had jobs because of it. It was as if we were broken, I thought, as if we were never supposed to feel these sticky emotions. It was as if we were cracked, couldn’t love right, couldn’t feel good things for very long without screwing it all up. We were like gasoline engines running on diesel. It is hard for us to admit we have a sin nature because we live in this system of checks and balances. If we get caught, we will be punished. But that doesn’t make us good people; it only makes us subdued. Just think about the Congress and Senate and even the President. The genius of the American system is not freedom; the genius of the American system is checks and balances. Nobody gets all the power. Everybody is watching everybody else. It is as if the founding fathers knew, intrinsically, that the soul of man, unwatched, is perverse. The goofy thing about Christian faith…is that you believe it and don’t believe at the same time. It isn’t unlike having an imaginary friend. I believe in Jesus; I believe he is the Son of God, but every time I sit down to explain this to somebody I feel like a palm reader, like somebody who works at a circus or a kid who is always making things up or somebody at a Star Trek convention who hasn’t figured out the show isn’t real.


Yep, It’s hard not to feel like a cult member when we talk about God and faith in general. Even though it is hard or uncomfortable, I believe it and care enough for you that I will look like a dork or a fanatic to share it with you. It’s almost like having the cure for cancer or something. I would be evil and wrong if you had cancer to not try and share it with you. I believe Jesus to be the cure for life’s problems.


The greatest trick of the devil…is not to get us into some sort of evil but rather have us wasting time. This is why the devil tries so hard to get Christians to be religious. If he can sink a man’s mind into habit, he will prevent his heart from engaging God.”


I recently heard a Pastor say that the devil doesn’t want a Christian to be rebellious but wants us to be religious. The people Jesus had a problem with weren’t the thief or the prostitute. It was with the religious people. and a warm fuzzy poem by C.S. Lewis All this is flashy rhetoric about loving you I never had a selfless thought since I was born I am mercenary and self-seeking through and through I want GOD, you, all friends to merely serve my turn Peace, reassurance, pleasure are the good I seek I cannot crawl one inch outside my proper skin I talk of love, a scholar’s parrot may talk Greek But self-imprisoned, always end where I begin.

Please take a second to do this survey. It helps me know you were here 🙂

Lifehouse – Everything lyrics

Find Me Here
Speak To Me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light
That’s leading me
To the place where I find peace again.

You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose…you’re everything.

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won’t let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Cause you’re all I want, You’re all I need
You’re everything,everything
You’re all I want your all I need
You’re everything, everything.
You’re all I want you’re all I need.
You’re everything, everything
You’re all I want you’re all I need, you’re everything, everything.

And How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

<background>How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

 

Center of the Universe March 9, 2009

Mike Wants To Be Authentic *CLICK IMAGE* to visit site

I’ve always wondered if there was a god. And now I know there is – and it’s me. –Homer Simpson

So it turns out, I’m not the center of the universe.

Turns out you aren’t the center either, but we think we are. If you don’t believe me, read on … Imagine you are late, it is really important, you need to be somewhere. You are going to be late. Arrgh, you have to turn right but you are in the left lane. You put on your signal for a couple of blinks but “Mister I’m the King of the Road” won’t let you over. Can’t he see your blinker? He is obviously oblivious to your plight. You are going to be late! You speed up and cut off the road king and make your quick right. He gestures and you gesture back and continue on to your

Right.

appointment. Now imagine you are just coming home after the appointment, your in no real hurry just heading home when someone changes lanes in front of you. It’s not really all that close but, hey, you are driving there. You give them a little blast of the horn so they realize their mistake.

So the deal is we don’t really think of other people. It really doesn’t matter why someone inconveniences us. If the driver cuts us off, the store clerk is rude, the waitress doesn’t give us the service we deserve. We have no idea what each person is going through. I can tell you something absolutely, they are going through something. We are all struggling through life.

Now don’t think I’m here just smacking you around, I act the same way. It’s so easy for me to recognize it in you because I’m the same. I just wonder how better the world would be if we tried to think of others as even remotely as important as ourselves. Let me know what you think. -m

You are really, really, really small.

You are really, really, really small.
