i want adventure in the great wide somewhere.

i realize that this is true of me. part of me wants to be proud of these facts. but honestly, these are sad things to recognize in oneself.
galatians 5:1 says "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." by being burdened by past losses, i am not allowing myself to be free.
and freedom is what we all long for, isn't it?

i know i'm lame, but i love disney princesses. i just do. i especially and typically like belle. my cries for freedom often remind me of one of her most famous lyrics:
i want adventure in the great wide somewhere.
i want it more than i can tell.
and for once, it might be grand to have someone understand
i want so much more than they've got planned.

i suppose the grand thing for me is that Someone does understand my desire for more than "they" have planned. i want more than the typical, more than the expected, more than the ordinary. i want adventure.
but as cs lewis once said, that is to be expected, for "if i find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy, i can only conclude that i was not made for here."
my desire for freedom, for more, for adventure, it's only satisfied in the One who placed it in my heart, who planned my adventure, who pieced my life together.


  1. love, love, love...keep claiming the freedom that is yours!

  2. I GET TO BE BELLE TOMORROW!!!! for the 3 year-old that I nanny's birthday party. (did that make sense?)
