Well, this blog is just going to be a collage of all things that inspire me and capture my attention as I walk through my everyday life: pictures, music, quotes, art, song lyrics, videos, bible verses, parody of songs, etc.

Reblogging this because I need this. 

I really needed to hear this

Once upon a time, I decided that it was my solemn obligation to prank my friends before we graduated.


So…I made Hogwarts Acceptance letters. A lot of them. Because who isn’t still waiting for their freaking letter to arrive?





My hand hated me so much. Also, cursive G is the worst.


Letters were posted. All was well.

Until this happened…


What the-?





This is literally the best thing I have ever seen in my entire life.

“[Shostakovich] gave me the score of his first Cello Concerto, and in four days I memorized it and played it for him while he accompanied me on piano. We were so happy, we drank a little vodka together. We then played it again, not so perfectly, and drank more vodka. The third time I think I played the Saint-Saens Concerto while he accompanied his own concerto. We were very happy.”

Krista and Tatiana Hogan are craniopagus twins, meaning they’re connected at the head.

They share a structure that connects Krista’s thalamus to Tatiana’s. The thalamus is a double-lobed organ that plays important roles in processing sensory input and creating consciousness.

Since Krista’s and Tatiana’s thalami are connected, scientists and members of the Hogan family think the girls might view the world differently than the rest of us do.

For example, Dr. Cochrane believes the girls can see through each other’s eyes. He came to this conclusion after covering Krista’s eyes, placing electrodes on her head, and watched Krista’s brain respond after shining a light in Tatiana’s pupils.

Other times, one girl will be watching TV while the other is looking somewhere else. Suddenly, the twin not watching TV will start laughing at what’s happening onscreen.

Their “thalamic bridge” also affects their sense of taste. Krista is a ketchup fiend, but Tatiana hates the stuff. Once, Krista was eating ketchup, and Tatiana furiously tried to wipe it off her own tongue even though she wasn’t eating any ketchup herself.

Perhaps the strangest phenomenon of all is that the twins sometimes use the word “I” to describe both of themselves at once.

As of 2011, no one had run any conclusive tests on the girls and their odd condition. However, scientists who have observed their behavior and brain scans are flabbergasted and excited. While no one can say for sure at the moment, it really does seem Krista and Tatiana can share private thoughts and perceive what the other is sensing.

As someone who wants to study consciousness in the future, I can say this is one of the most extraordinary cases I have ever heard of.

Our severest trials are God’s most powerful answers to our petition that He conform us to Christ’s image. They are His chisel on our hearts.


I’ve been a Christian for more than a quarter of a century. And with all those years as a follower of Christ, you might think I was nearing faultlessness. I know better.

Not that I haven’t tried. I remember as a teen getting so frustrated over the same old sin struggles that I finally resolved never to sin again. That vow didn’t last even through the day.

One particular area I’ve struggled with is blowing my top. Over the years, I’ve memorized Scripture, prayed to become a man of peace, and worked at curbing my anger, and I’ve seen real progress (you can ask my wife). But as I entered new circumstances — college, marriage, a new city, a new job, children — my temper would flare up in unexpected ways.


Dorset Wildlife Trust discovered a species of starfish Kimmeridge that has never been recorded there before. The small cushion starfish (Asterina phylactica) was found by a group of volunteers in rockpools during one of the lowest tides of the year.

Your emptiness is but the preparation for your being filled, and your casting down is but the making ready for your lifting up.
