We’re picking up cues from our culture about the way we live our lives and the pace at which we live our lives. Rest isn’t a priority, because so often rest is confused with laziness.
Rest, instead of being something passive, is actually an act of resistance. We live in The City That Never Sleeps — so resting may be the most countercultural and spiritual thing we do with our lives.The Theology of Rest (via explore-blog)

(mine’s national chocolate cupcake day!!)
IM RICE PUDDONG EWWWWWWWWEEEEWWWEEEEWW
I’m guacamole I’m so disgusted right now what the heck
Um. National TV Dinner Day? Does that even really qualify as food, though?
Day 12: Favorite Season 1 Male Solo: Rose’s Turn—Kurt Hummel
So powerful! From the angry beginning in the hallway to the larger-than-life staged performance, with KURT lights in the background, to the lyric-changes to reflect Kurt’s own struggle to gain recognition, to the Burt-Kurt heart-to-heart in the wake of the performance. I love love love it.
Day 13: Favorite Season 1 Duet: 4 Minutes—Kurt and Mercedes
Brass band, cheerleading uniforms, sexy choreography and Kurtcedes bonding! Woohoo!
Day 14: Favorite Season 1 Group Number: Keep Holding On
This felt like the first time that the larger Glee Club was a cohesive unit. The solidarity with Quinn (the teary-eyed smiles Kurt gives her!), the choreography, the raw emotion on peoples’ faces (Finn, Quinn, Kurt and Mike, in particular). This was the moment when the club was codified as the safe haven for social misfits. I get weepy.
Cast member I would most like to meet:
Darren. 1) He seems to really enjoy fan interactions and I would much rather make someone’s day than risk irritating them. 2) He seems easy to talk to. I think I’d genuinely enjoy hanging out with him. 3) Fine. He’s my biggest celebrity crush since Michael J. Fox in Family Ties when I was seven.
The Sex Talk. It is so good! So uncomfortable, and Kurt’s emotions are so high and so vivid on his face, and Burt is so intent on just plowing through and making sure the important stuff gets said, and it is so true, and so beautiful. I basically took notes in preparation for when my kids hit puberty. And I want to show it to every group of teenagers I know.
Kurt Hummel. Sue hooked me, Kurt kept me watching. I love him in all his friendships and relationships (canon and non-canon—I am a Kurt multi-shipper, for sure). I love hims with his dad, with Sue, with Finn, with Rachel, with Mercedes, with Blaine, with Emma, with Schue (putting up with no nonsense), with Elliot, with Karofsky, with Sebastian, with Santana, with Brittany, with Puck, with Unique, with Sam, with Quinn… Kurt is such a human character, I just love him to pieces.
I’m probably biased, since religion is my profession, but Grilled Cheesus is my favorite. The balance between absurd Glee humor (Finn’s “coming out” scene just gets funnier and funnier the more you watch it) and heartbreaking drama is well-played. This episode changed the way I watch Glee and it changed the way I am a pastor. Kurt’s dismissal of organized religion on the basis of it’s hostility toward him opened my eyes to why I couldn’t be silent about same-sex inclusion any more. Silence communicates complicity with those voices of hate. Kurt broke my heart, and I’m still learning from those little moments in that episode.
Making a “holy shit we get married in less than 3 months” checklist.
do you mean less that 3 weeks? Because 20 days is waaaay less than 3 months…
Oops yup. Less than 3 weeks
Congratulations! The details will come together, the day will be awesome, and best of all, you’ll be married!!
What character did you first fall in love with?
Honestly, the character that sucked me in at first was Sue. She was so outrageous. But I wouldn’t say I fell in love with her. I think that honor has to go to Kurt. I very quickly developed squishy maternal feelings for Kurt, and I just want so much for him, now and always.
What was the first episode you watched?
Pilot. I remember the energy of the opening cheer sequence and Sue’s first line. The dragging muffler. I remember being really uncomfortable with how strongly the script was pushing Wemma even though Will was married. I loved Emma, but didn’t hate Terri (yet). I adored Sue’s character and was already a Jane Lynch fan—in fact, Jane and Jayma were the only cast members I knew from other stuff.
