Simple Communication Will Suffice

This is a post dedicated to all of the folks out there that like to define words to emphasize their meaning. to all of the people who like to give alternate translations of a word to better convey what they mean. to those that have mastered the art of balancing their study bible, notebook, greek bible, hebrew bible, their esl bibles and someohow - just somehow - their train of thought all in one lap. to all of folks that repeat a word and use a different pitch each time. to those that repeat a word emphasizing a different syllable each time. for those that have to use an amazing personal experience or some incredible once in a lifetime story to make their profound thought simple to the simple listener/reader.

Just speak people. Jesus used parables to weed out the scholars and law abiders from the true followers. We use clear and thought provoking words that stand on their own. They make sense and they prove a point.

promise - shromise

i resent the fact that i haven't even logged on to my blog in over 2 months. i feel like all of the out of control-ness has come from me bottling up emotions and thoughts and forgoing the method that really makes me happy. i love to write. it is definitely a passion. some people use it to spread information about themselves to others. i use it to teach myself a litte bit about who i am.

i vehemently promise to not allow myself to forget that no matter what has occupied my time, i will not give up on writing. i further promise that i will allow this blog to take on the form that it wills to. the realization i have come to know is that i need to step out of the way and let my thoughts flow freely. i think this is why i stopped blogging/journalin/writing as of late....i am too critical on myself. i get to re-reading and that just leads to re-editing. i want to look back on what my original thoughts were...not my corrected overbearing thoughts were. being overly critical on one self only leads to failure anyway. not sure if that quote is penned. it should be!

i promise to write the first thought that comes to mind. and to recognize it as me. flawed and all.

so much for promises.
