love in a song

I'm completely in love with this song and it's application.

There's a man in the corner and his clothes are worn
And he's holding out his hand
You could see in his eyes as the people walk by
He knows they don't understand

Ya see they just think he's gonna take their money
And go and spend it all on dope
Then a man stopped by and I saw a smile inside him
As he gently whispered hope

Well the tramp started to cry, just kept saying,
"Why? why? why?
Could you see I'm a dying tonight
Well I'm 32 and I've got this one pair of shoes
And a bad taste in my mouth
I think it's clear to see that even God don't love me
Or else why would He leave me this way."

Then Gabriel just smiled and said be peaced my child
Salvation is here today

He got up to his feet and he sang Hallelujah
People were turning around in the street
He looked them in the eyes and he sang,
There's someone here that you gotta meet
Someone you just gotta meet."

When the vagabond turned around well without a sign
Gabriel just smiled and disappeared
Then he looked to the crowd and they were laughing out loud
But he could not see them fore tears
When his vision came round
There was a young girl on the ground
I knew she was fine and hard to cope
She never was a fighter until he laid beside her
And gently whispered hope

They got up to their feet and they sang Hallelujah
People in the street were turning around
They looked them in the eyes and they sang,
There's someone here we have found"
They sang,
"Hallelujah, Hallelujah
We are the voices crying in the wilderness
Hallelujah, Hallelujah."
The people in the street started their sins to confess
And a chorus of,
"Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Every knee will bow and every tongue confess
and the voice of one crying in the wilderness
Hallelujah, Hallelujah"

love in a cup

i gave them my actual name when i ordered my coffee, but this was the name on the drink i was given. god is comedic i think.

i'm taking it as a cue to share that a surge of love is something we could all "drink" of, if you will.

Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and border and salute each other.
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet, May 14, 1904, (translated from German by M.D.H. Norton)

How far would WE go?

In 2007, Invisible Children posed a challenge to students around the world: raise one million dollars in 100 days to rebuild schools in war-torn northern Uganda.

Thousands of students rallied, and 20 were rewarded with the adventure of a lifetime: a journey to Gulu, Uganda, into the heart of Africa's longest-running war.
How far would you GO?

Let's start HERE:
