maybe i should check my junk e-mail more often

about 4 years ago i stopped using hotmail as my primary e-mail account (yes i jumped on the gmail bandwagen and i have been happily riding it ever since!). anyway, i randomly check my hotmail inbox to see if i have any fun e-mails from people still using my hotmail address... today i decided to check my junk-mail...

to my suprise, i am still the recipient of holland christian high school's weekly announcements... something i signed up to get as a freshman... and have been getting every monday-friday for the past 9 years. oh my goodness... its been 9 years since i was a freshman in high school. AAHHH... anyway, i finally unsubscribed to announcement... i have lost the ability (not that i ever knew i had it) to find out what the cafeteria will be serving at good old hc.

a prayer of kierkegaard for the day

Father in Heaven! You have loved us first, help us never to forget that You are love so that this sure conviction might triumph in our hearts over the seduction of the world, over the inquietude of the soul, over the anxiety for the future, over the fright of the past, over the distress of the moment. But grant also that this conviction might discipline our soul so that our heart might remain faithful and sincere in the love which we bear to all those whom You have commanded us to love as we love ourselves.

You have loved us first, O God, alas! We speak of it in terms of history as if You have only loved us first but a single time, rather than that without ceasing You have loved us first many things and every day and our whole life through. When we wake up in the morning and turn our soul toward You - You are the first - You have loved us first; if I rise at dawn and at the same second turn my soul toward You in prayer, You are there ahead of me, You have loved me first. When I withdraw from the distractions of the day and turn my soul toward You, You are the first and thus forever. And yet we always speak ungratefully as if You have loved us first only once.
