Holy Sonnet XIV (14) by John Donne

Batter my heart, three-person'd God; for, you
As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
That I may rise, and stand, o'erthrow me, and bend
Your force, to break, blow, burn and make me new.
I, like an usurp'd town, t'another due,
Labour to admit you, but oh, to no end,
Reason your viceroy in me, me should defend,
But is captiv'd, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain,
But am betroth'd unto your enemy:
Divorce me, untie, or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I
Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.

because it's tuesday...

Today I feel productive. I had an interview this mornig with the tourism bureau. I was the first interview of four, so I have to wait a few days to find out if I get a second interview, and then if I get the job. It seems like an interesting job. I think it would suit me for the summer if I got it. A little later this morning I went by the staffing office to give them my tax information and get directions to my job for tomorrow and Thursday. It's a bit of a drive, but it's only two days, so I'm fine with that. I'll be up far earlier than I have in a while though! As for the rest of today, as I have now completed lunch, replied to emails, and written a post for your enjoyment, I believe I will go read for several hours. Then I will enjoy a wonderful dinner prepared especially for me (those are the best kind). Tomorrow is Krissy's birthday, and I have a little something planned for her, but I will not divulge what that plan entails in case she reads this today. Tomorrow night the Fusion leadership team is leading the Powerhouse service (the high school service) before doing our regular Fusion. That should be fun. I'm singing with the worship team as well as giving a testimony. I'm looking forward to it. That's all for now. Happy Tuesday to everyone!

beautiful rain...

It has been an incredibly pleasant Monday at the Oviedo house. Good news of the day: I have a temp job for Wednesday and Thursday (and possibly Friday, but probably not); I passed my FTCE exam; and I have an interview tomorrow morning. Additionally, I met with Mrs. Johnson today, the teacher I will be interning with in the fall. She is such a nice person. I am really looking forward to working with her. She gave me some books to look over for the summer. I got my forms all filled out for the New York trip, which I am also looking forward to. Oh, and when I was at Target I discovered the new Reeces Peanut Butter Cups that only have one gram of sugar! They're really good! Well, that's all my news for today. Looking forward to Bible study tonight. Ephesians is so good! Much love!
