To quote Switchfoot, "I'm an already-but-not-yet, resurrected, fallen man."

Life tends to be messy, and doesn't always go the way you like. But, to quote G.K. Chesterton, "An adventure is only an inconvenience, rightly considered; an inconvenience is only an adventure, wrongly considered."

Finally, to quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, "I hate quotations. Tell me what you think."

I'm a Christian. This means I'm the scum of the earth which is somehow being miraculously transformed into the glory of the universe. Don't ask me to explain it. I don't know how it works either.

My life by analogy: I feel as if I'm trying to make a trip the whole way across America. But all the signs have been changed into a foreign language and the only map I have is of Lichtenstein. The other drivers all look like they know where they're going, but occasionally I suspect it's just a front. (And who sold me this map of Lichtenstein?!?!?)

This isn't finished yet, but I've got to think for a while more before I add anything else.

Earlier titles for my Journal include:

Life in the Last Fane: This train's about to leave.  Get on board quick.
Contemplating the Taste of My Own Foot: Hmmm, I think it needs a grain of salt.
