to erik

why, you ask?
because otter pops make every summer day better, sleeping under the stars helps you remember God, and service helps you forget yourself
because after running a couple of miles, you forget that your legs hurt
because fireflies in a corn field are incredible, wild sunflowers grow on the side of the freeway, and dancing in the rain is one of the best things ever
because nine year-old sisters convince you to take a crazy day-trip home, eat hard-serve ice cream, swim, and play arcade games with them
because a good meal with family and/or close friends reminds you of what really matters
because i never expected it
because i know it will all work out
because i know Jesus Christ is my Savior
because i know God is my Father
