"The persons within God [the trinity] exalt each other, commune with each other, and defer to one another…. Each divine person harbors the other at the center of his being. In constant movement of overture and acceptance, each person envelops and encircles the other…. God’s interior life [therefore] overflows with regard for others."

-Cornelius Plantinga

The more you get to know God the more beautiful He appears. Such selfless sacrifice, such love. What an amazing example, what a standard to reach for! This is the kind of love I pray for. The kind of love I want to demonstrate in our relationship. The kind of love I want to experience for her.

Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment that makes you think, “I just really love you”

Since I’m not having any OLY meets anytime soon and since I’m taking rehab on my back slowly I’ve figured fun goals to work on for my workouts.

1. Finally dedicate some training to my upper boy and develop a larger chest than a prepubescent girl aka finally start bench pressing.

2. Deal with my atrocious hamstring flexibility and work towards being able to touch my toes without all kinds of discomfort and perhaps even work towards doing the splits.

Injuries aren’t setbacks. They’re opportunities to shore up weaknesses

Bittersweet moment. I’m officially withdrawing from Univ. Nationals which I had been training for all year. I pulled a muscle in my lower back last friday doing a snatch pull and have been wrestling with rushing rehab protocols for this next weekend or dropping out. Just spoke to my Coach and sponsor and he was totally understanding, even encouraging me to drop out of the comp and do all that I can for longterm health and performance. Sad to have to drop out, but glad that I can now have mental peace and really allow my body the time it needs to recover properly
