tiny fragments of perfection

  • if i was all the colors, i would paint you pretty in gold in a picture. (jason mraz/zero percent interest).

  • as i took him in my arms he screamed i'm not insane i'm just looking for someone to understand my pain... (five for fighting/the devil in the wishing well)

  • i'm not the kind of man who tends to socialize/ i seem to lean on old familiar ways/ and i ain't no fool for love songs that whisper in my ears/ still crazy after all these years (paul simon / still crazy after all these years)

  • but there's something in the way you laugh that makes me feel like a child... aspects of life they confuse me, you and your thesis amuse me... after and afternoon with you... and your rich brown eyes your lips and your dark hair, elbows and exposed knees tossing toward the ceiling... after an afternoon... (jason mraz/ after an afternoon)

a long awaited end

  • face to palm... tear to tear... mouth to tongue... heart to ground... i am in love... (jason mraz/ after an afternoon)

Sarah, Have you found a church to go to since you've moved?


ugh, i've started the beating that is church shopping. i tried this morning to visit a congregation that i've never visited, looked them up on the internet, should have been warned by the fact that they haven't updated their website in 2 years.

got to the building, walked in, heard keyboard music and saw a lady in charge and promptly walked out. turned around and saw the realty sign that said "SOLD" in big letters.

so tonight i visited a congregation i've visited a few times where i have some friends, and it was fine. i'll visit there a few weeks before checking out other congregations.

what a beating church hunting is.


God has a place for you, girl! :-)

jason of avoca

Good luck in your search, sarahk. I think that finding the church is one of the most important choices a person can make.


What kind of church are you looking for? Are there any specific things? Doesn't sound like you are having very much fun. Sorry :(


Pam is right, He sure does. :) and it will be great!


Ah the verse that was the inspiration for one of my most favorite worship songs... "Whom Shall I Fear". It's always fun to play drums to it.


That's beautiful Sarah. Sometimes though it seems God is far away.


thanks for the encouraging words, y'all.

Pam and Ryan, sometimes i have a hard time figuring out where that place is, but i know if i'll just listen He'll tell me what i need to know.

i agree, jason, it's crucial to find the right place. that's why church hunting is such a drain; it tends to take everything out of me, and this is the third time in 2 years that i've had to find a new congregation.

Kara, i'm a member of the church of Christ; there are 10 or so congregations here in town, so i'm sure i'll find the right one. i don't care if there are people my age, etc., but it is hard to find people as conservative in their views as i am. but if none of these 10 fits, there are lots of small towns around here; i'm willing to drive. :) i'm conservative fiscally, religiously, and politically, i'd drive California crazy!

Joel, i'm not sure i've heard that song, but i love the title.

Donna, you're so right, sweetie. i've felt so far from God for a lot of this year, and other times i've felt closer to Him than ever. i really struggle with staying close to Him, and it really makes me mad at myself, because He's always there, i just tend to wander away, or worse, just float around ignoring Him. i feel best and most at peace when i'm reading my Bible every day and listening to what God says.


The song is by Darrell Evans and here's the lyrics, enjoy!

I will seek You, Lord,
While I am in my youth
I will serve You, Lord,
and I'll proclaim Your truth
For You searched and found me,
while I was far away
And in my troubled times, You
always keep me safe.

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

The Lord is my light, and my salvation
Whom shall I fear, Whom shall I fear
The Lord is the stronghold of my life
Whom shall I fear, Whom shall I fear


thank you, Joel, those are great lyrics.

James P

I know its easy for someone whose not their to say it, but there's no need to worry. God has good things planned for you. You'll find the church he wants you to go to.


thanks, james.


The following sites can be very helpful when coming to a decision to find a church home, and to help discern the teachings of the one you are in. These are trusted and very Biblical pastors and teachers. they can help you on your journey. I have many more that I listen to, a wide range of denominational backgrounds, which all agree on the essentials.

You will not find a perfect church, none exist. But there are conservative Bible teaching churches and there are liberal non-Bible believing churches, and there are so called Christian churches that have added their own stuff and thrown out the stuff they don't agree with in God's Word, His 66 love letters to mankind.
Anyway, when you get a chance check these out.

God bless you SarahK. :o)

  • some stuff the great Frank J said about me...

  • "Beautiful, deadly with a gun, and fellow Alias fan"

  • "There she is, the IMAO T-Shirt Babe, There she is, your ideal, The dreams of a million girls Who are more than pretty May come true if they punch a hippy, Oh she may turn out to be The queen of femininity, There she is, the IMAO T-Shirt Babe, There she is, your ideal With so much ammo She'll take the town by storm, With her all-American face and form, And there she is, Firing in the air she is, Fairest of the fair she is, The IMAO T-Shirt Babe"

  • yowza*

don't make me sissify you

  • please keep the comments "cussin'"-free, and no taking of the Lord's name in vain (including in initials form and in euphemistic form). my grama reads my blog, and i don't like those words either. if you post something i don't like, i will change your wording to make you sound like a sissy.

  • p.s. if you're a troll, i reserve the right to either wingardium leviosa your butt (which means delete and ban you), or the more fun option, to put a pretty bonnet on your head and lead you around on a lovely purple leash and make you do my bidding. yay!!
