Dear Lord ... i really want to be married

"It is Love which causes Earth to yearn for rain, when the parched ground, barren with drought, has need of moisture. It is Love which makes the Sacred Heaven, swollen with rain, sink into the lap of Earth. And when these twain are mingled, they beget and nourish all things."

-Euripides, comparing men and women to heaven and earth

Elisabeth Elliot put this in her book "Passion and Purity." I'm not sure if I'm glad she put it in there. Beautiful words, i know.... but very visual.

i had a conversation with God in the cooler at work the other day.
God, i'm tired of working here!
tired of rich, stupid people!
tired of not having sex!

i felt better after i was done.

I considered skipping over this one, but in the interest of thoroughness, decided not to.
