Ted: I am not your future. Barney is.
Robin: Shouldn’t I be with a guy who finds me my locket? The guy who steals me the blue French horn? Look me in the eye and tell me why shouldn’t I be with that guy?
Ted: Because I’m not that guy anymore..
13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
- John, Ch. 4
This past week I’ve been reflecting on this encounter Jesus has with a Samaritan woman. The conversation centers around a well and water. Further into the chapter we learn that the woman has a history of unsuccessful marriages. Five to be exact. It’s clear that she has been thirsting for love and attempted to quench it through relationships with men. In the end, however, she ends back at square one—thirsty.
I’ve been trying to quench my thirst for some time now. I’ve attempted to do so through friends, materials things, girls, and giving in to sin. Time after time this happens and like the Samaritan woman, I feel discouraged. But in the midst of my dissatisfaction Jesus extends his grace and offers me a drink. The desires and wants I have, although still present, in comparison, grows dim to the peace Jesus offers me.
Today’s the first official day of Spring and you know what that means? Summer is just right around the corner! #DoinWork
Spent this past weekend in Portland celebrating a friend’s birthday. We went shopping (tax-free!), ate at food carts and popular local restaurants, went out in the city, and just enjoyed each other’s company.

The Mother: You’re the love of my life, Pooh-Bear. I just worry about you.. I don’t want you to be the guy who lives in his stories.
The Mother: Life only moves forward.
