wednesday_inc These words from #bluelikejazz by @donaldmiller were read at our wedding. We've experienced some beautiful highs and some testing lows in five years. Thankful for this reminder of how to love and why we love. "I will give you this, my love, and I will not bargain or barter any longer. I will love you, as sure as He has loved me. I will discover what I can discover and though you remain a mystery, save God's own knowledge, what I disclose of you I will keep in the warmest chamber of my heart, the very chamber where God has stowed Himself in me. And I will do this to my death, and to death it may bring me. I will love you like God, because of God, mighted by the power of God. I will stop expecting your love, demanding your love, trading for your love, gaming for your love. I will simply love. I am giving myself to you, and tomorrow I will do it again. I suppose the clock itself will wear thin its time before I am ended at this altar of dying and dying again. God risked Himself on me. I will risk myself on you. And together, we will learn to love, and perhaps then, and only then, understand this gravity that drew Him, unto us." 2d

ashjordanlong "We would eat chocolate and smoke cigarettes and read the Bible, which is the only way to do it, if you ask me. Don, the Bible is so good with chocolate. I always thought the Bible was more of a salad thing, you know, but it isn't. It is a chocolate thing." Donald Miller // I'm 11 years behind the times and just now reading Blue Like Jazz. I'm thankful that a random person on campus gave it to @jaredmlongoria so that years later, he could give it to me. 5d

ashleygrant11 I'm [finally] reading Blue Like Jazz and first off, I love it. Second off, this stood out to me: Miller talks about how the mating habits of penguins helped him understand why he believes in Jesus (no, I'm not kidding). He talks about having watched a documentary on how penguin moms will lay their eggs and then leave to go fish while the penguin dads stay behind and sit on the eggs. They sit for a month right up until the little penguin babies are ready to hatch. Then somehow, the penguin moms know when it's time to come back. "They have this radar inside them that told them when and where to go and none of it made any sense, but they show up on the very day their babies are being born, and the radar always turns out to be right. I have a radar inside me that says to believe in Jesus. Somehow, penguin radar leads them perfectly well. Maybe it isn't so foolish that I follow the radar inside of me." #bluelikejazz #shereadstruth 1w

diazjas795 Don Miller has been such a huge inspiration in my life lately. Between his books and his blog, he has inspired me to take the pen, write my own life story and make something remarkable out of it. I wish I could hug you Don! Thank you! #bluelikejazz 1w

benzmerman Not trying to get anyone to agree with me, I want them to meet God. #BlueLikeJazz @donmilleris I'm pretty sure you wrote this book describing my life haha 2w
  •   stayfreenchrist LOVE that book. 2w
  •   stayfreenchrist Ben I believe you'd really love Unchristian by David Kinnaman too. Really gets you outta the box without thinking you need to jump ship to be Christ to the world. isn't He awesome to keep filtering our minds to truly be more than we every thought we'd be. Then He uses little ole us out in His great big world to show off His Son. #Wildride 2w
  •   benzmerman @stayfreenchrist I will check it out! I agree He has been really filtering me lately and it's scary but I'm glad and excited to get out and do something with out having to worry if I'm doing it right by human standards, He empowers us 2w
