Simul Iustus et Peccator // Domine, Evellis Tu


My birthday is in 10 days. What should I do?


"I have now seen the ‘giveth’ and the ‘taketh.’ That perhaps, sometimes, ‘taking’ really means ‘giving,’ if you tilt your head in just the right way, how you might when the sun pecks strongly through the window and you avoid its speckling glare. But sometimes ‘giving’ really does mean ‘taking,’ to receive is sometimes conditional, covenantal, and some desired things must fall away. I am often Lazarus, entombing myself into inner parts of me in death, but forces stronger than my own force life inside of my brittle bones. ‘Walk,’ it tells me, ‘Walk.’"
