ODB: WHEN BEAUTY NEVER ENDS

October 20, 2017


We were created to enjoy God forever.

 

READ: Psalm 27:1–4 

 

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. Psalm 63:3

 

I love looking at the Grand Canyon. Whenever I stand at the canyon rim I see new brushstrokes of God’s handiwork that take my breath away.

Even though it’s just a (very large) “hole” in the ground, the Grand Canyon causes me to reflect on heaven. A very honest twelve-year-old asked me once, “Won’t heaven be boring? Don’t you think we’ll get tired of praising God all the time?” But if a “hole in the ground” can be so overwhelmingly beautiful we can’t stop looking at it, we can only imagine the joy of one day seeing the very Source of beauty—our loving Creator—in all of the pristine wonder of the new creation.

David expressed this longing when he wrote, “One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord” (Ps. 27:4). There’s nothing more beautiful than the presence of God, which draws near to us on this earth as we seek Him by faith, looking forward to seeing Him face to face.

On that day we’ll never tire of praising our amazing Lord, because we will never come to an end of fresh, new discoveries of His exquisite goodness and the wonders of the works of His hands. Every moment in His presence will bring a breathtaking revelation of His beauty and His love.

— James Banks

Beautiful Savior, please help me to seek You every day and to live even now in Your presence and Your love.

There. I said it.

 Microwave mac and cheese is a trap. Delicious trap, though.
The Friday post of glee is where you get to tell us about your climbing-related happiness this week.

It can be a new achievement or adventure, or just that you climbed and had fun; it can be that your favourite climbing wall is expanding or that you bought new rock shoes or that you found a cool ice-climbing vid on YouTube. No glee is too small -- or too big. Members are encouraged to cheer each other on and share the squee.

N.B. Please feel free to post your glee on any day of the week; the Friday glee is just to get the ball rolling.

To enhance this week's glee: Matty Hong in Spain.

But the Headless Horseman? Oh, yes, I will take those instantly-popping queues tanks get, thank you VERY much.

20 minutes for Team Hunter (aka DPSx2) to get in to kill the Horseman. Instant for Team Monk (aka tank+healer) and Team Baby Monk (aka level 107 tank and 105 healer).

And then I keybound my insta-cast flying mount and took my max level tank out to Undercity, prepared to die for the honor of the Alliance as I doused the Horde wickerman while PVP flagged...and there was no one there. I can't remember another Hallow's End where the Horde weren't lying in wait for people who came to douse the wickerman. Most years, it's been a matter of creeping around as a ghost trying to find a spot where I wouldn't be noticed until dousing fluid was thrown and then corpse running my way out, but this year...nothing.

Guess everyone is on Argus.
Hi guys! Just finished watching this week's episode. Once again, I really enjoyed it. I like Jack, I think Jensen and Jared are both acting their hearts out, as always. I like the story that they're telling so far. Tell me what you think, the good and the bad. I can't wait to see what everyone has to say. :)

The files are almost finished uploading. Once they're done, just follow the links below and then click to download whichever format you'd like best.

The Stranger Things phone game is too addictive for my own good. Send help.

... Well, it's semi-addictive. I tend to play in burst of 30 minutes or so because the gameplay is slightly repetitive and I get tired of it quickly, but no more so that, say, the Lego games - I just get bored with punching things to collect stuff. I played for a couple hours today because after a day or two of beating my head against one of the puzzles, I managed to figure out the solution without having to look up any cheats, and this got me into a whole new dungeon and I didn't want to stop.

It's an adorable game, though. It's got retro 80s-style graphics and puzzles that are just hard enough to be challenging without being flat-out impossible. I've had to look up a cheat to get through one level so far, and I also wish I'd figured out in the beginning that it's very useful to do a bunch of the side quests before you try to fight through too many of the dungeons because you level up on health and carry slots, so it makes the dungeons slightly easier and less frustrating when you aren't dying all the time.

I don't play very many games and I'm having a blast with this one, so take that for whatever it's worth.

Because today has been a Day for uninteresting reasons, I present to you a song that makes me happy: Anne Murray's "I Just Fall in Love Again" [Youtube].

(I'm Texan. I grew up on country, okay? ^_^)

Feel free to link to Youtube versions of songs that make you happy! I expect yours are less mushy than mine. ^_^

I wish someone had sorted this out about 40+ years ago... but at least it's out there now.

"Resent" is both how one might feel about being told an email never arrived and also what one might do in response.

The month was only half over last weekend. How can it be almost three quarters over only a week later?

I have had the kind of day where you stagger home, you lie on the couch for a while, think about ordering take-out for dinner, and then decide, "Fuck it, I already took my bra off. I'm not so desperately hungry that I have the energy to put it back on."

Only one more sleep until the weekend, thank heavens!
