Change?

It's a good thing. Sometimes a necessary thing! I'm going to be travelling for a bit. Atlanta for the US Social Forum, among other places.

The past little while I have been really, really super annoyed that when I was home before my father stole my multitool and knives, because I have a two and a half mile walk to work every day, and on my way there I walk it in the dark, and it feels odd having no protection on me. And the multitool was just a SUPER DELICIOUS YUMMY Leatherman (this one to be exact) and they make awesome multitools and there have been so many countless times when doing something or other I have need for one of the tools on it and then am like OH YEAH I don't HAVE it anymore and really it is too expensive (and so were the knives) to be replaced -- seriously, well over $300 worth of equipment all told.

I was just thinking about it because I really want pliers right now. Argh.

I agree that that is one sexy piece of equipment. The Leatherman, I mean.

There are a few things i would love to pick your brain about... none of which have nothing to do with your father... I just want your view on a lot of things... you seem like a intelligent young woman and i would love to hear from you..

The Way to Victory Over Weakness
READ | Judges 16:1-22

Good parents attempt to provide their children every advantage to become successful adults. As Christians, we especially want to help our kids mature in their knowledge of God and the Bible, their love for Jesus, their appreciation of the church family, and the desire to serve the Lord. Children frequently have great enthusiasm for the things of God. But as they grow older, they may fall away.

Samson is an example of unfortunate drifting. He had a godly upbringing. But at some point, the world’s sexual temptations became very attractive to him.

Scripture reveals several occasions where Samson gave in to his lust. For instance, he desired a pagan woman from Timnah, despite his parents’ warning. In Judges 14:1-3, he broke God’s command by marrying her. A second incident nearly led to his murder. But he survived only because of his supernatural strength. Perhaps the most tragic and notorious example was Delilah’s betrayal of Samson. Lust prevented him from seeing her true nature. As a result, the Philistines captured and blinded Samson.

Left unchecked, sin penetrates and dominates our lives. It will affect others with its consequences. The first step toward success is awareness of our weaknesses. Then, we must admit we are helpless to overcome them alone. Finally, it’s important to acknowledge that God is able to rescue us. With this perspective, we’ll be able to obey His commands and gain victory.

Hello, Maya. I just thought I'd drop a line to tell you that I think you're awesome and wish you the best. I kind of came across this blog haphazardly, but I think you're quite an inspiration. We seem to agree on a number of things, although politically I'm somewhere between conservative and libertarian (but my bassist identifies as anarchist). But I also noticed you liked MSI and Stabbing Westward, so you obviously have great taste. Said bassist and I got to meet them shortly before the breakup (Chris is kinda short, but really nice). Incidentally, I've also met your father on two occasions (CPAC and randomly at the Nashville airport). But yeah, I hope you're doing well these days. Best wishes, feel free to drop me a line if you'd like...
