{the box will never be full}

"Dear Pat,
You came upon me carving some kind of little figure out of wood and you said, "Why don't you make something for me?"
I asked you what you wanted and you said, "A box."
"What for?"
"To put things in."
"What things?"
"Whatever you have," you said.
Well, here's your box. Nearly everything i have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts- the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation.
And on top of these are all the gratitude and love i have for you.
And still the box is not full.

I am on a journey of loving God and loving people and I will live my life being apart of something bigger than myself. I don't care to change the world, rather to show the people of the world the God that can. This is my box, I will fill it with my adventures, photographs, laughs, and cries. I hope that you enjoy it.
