Dangerous Things Are Splendid Things

It's a completely random title to go with a completely random post.
Can I just say that I am so excited for so many things? Life is always full of new surprises around each bend and corner, but in especially the last several weeks I've had so many things to anticipate.
God is exceedingly good to me, and more and more I'm realizing how truly undeserving I am of that Devine goodness.

I'm seeing how easily my heart puffs itself up and thinks so highly of its petty accomplishments and successes.

You know, I could take today's knife throwing photos and relay it to some sort of allegorical or parable for this post. If I wanted to, that is.
 I could try to make them relate somehow to some life familiar lesson - like, how easy it is for me to miss the mark and fall short of God's will and how difficult it can be to get a bulls-eye on fulfilling what He wants me to do, obeying His Word.

Yeah, I could write something up on that, couldn't I? Why not?
Eh. I don't feel like it today.

Sorry. I lost my train of thought. Where was I again?

Oh yes.
Knife-throwing. It's a reeeeeaaaaally fun sport, and I applaud anybody else who's taken it up and diligently practices. Not saying I'm doing that, but I try to get in some time on it each day if I'm not too lazy not to.

There's nothing quite like the sound of the blade sinking into the wood.
It's music to my ears, the boost to my morale, the peanut to my butter - oh phooey, never mind; I'm sure you got the idea long before my ridiculous analogies began.

Wielding my throwers, I feel a sense of...epicness, if you will. Okay, okay, I know that sounds as cheesy as they come. But still. If I actually hit the darn target I feel like a boss.

I'm not sure what spurred the urge to take these photos, honestly. People ask me about how my photography is going and I'm just like...My photography?
It's been so sporadic, that I hardly dare to call it much of a hobby. It's just something I do, when I get the sensation that I need to capture something in photographic form.
Most of my life has been sporadic lately, come to think of it.

Gil Hibbens!

No seriously, it has. I practice piano sporadically, write sporadically, work out sporadically, do blog posts sporadically. 
 Everything has been done...sporadically.
It's not ideal, but in some ways...well, I'm not complaining. It's a season of life which I am thankful for. It's a constant struggle to use my time wisely, try and point others to the Creator and give Him the glory in all that I do. It's a constant struggle.

 And now I'll leave you marvelous peoples with a scene from today which I found quite amusing.
"Fish on!"
Okay, that's it.
I'm gone.
Time to make myself scares on the internet, read my Bible and hopefully get some more writing done on the good ol' screenplay! When I can muster enough diligence and self-control to stay off of social media, (*coughfacebookcough*) I can actually get a lot done...surprising, isn't it?
 But don't mind my random ramblings, do tell me about how y'alls summers have been going so far! What's been new with you guys?
Soli Deo Gloria,


  1. Awesome hit! I would love to try it! Although I'm not sure my Mom would like it if I took all the kitchen knives outside and threw them around, since they’re the only knives I have at the moment :P
