Good Times Are Intentional

It’s been a long time since I’ve have good hangs with a brother outside and in nature. Sunday afternoon, I got to hang out with my dear brother and friend, Tanner. He showed me some woods that ran by a set off railroad tracks and a small creek. It was very beautiful and refreshing. Earlier we bought a Kombucha for him, a cold brew for me and we made the trek.

We walked in the woods, leaving the sounds of passing traffic quickly behind us and checked out different deer trails, alongside the creek. After about thirty minutes, we turned around and walked on the train tracks back to the car. We talked about many things, past relationships, the curse of being nostalgic, our Red Wings and how the church is supposed to look regarding relationships.

After this adventure, we ended up at our pastors house for some Dominos, and church talks.

As we get older, the more difficult it is to spend quality time with one another but, if you’re intentional about it, it’s still very possible.

Good times are intentional and God is good.

Strength Through Discomfort

I recently got a pair of Red Wing boots for the first time in a very long time. I had a pair several years ago but lost them after playing a show. (Long story short, don’t let a merch guy pack your personal items, especially when you’re in a rush.)

Day one was of the most uncomfortable days my feet had experienced in a very long time. I’d forgotten how much fresh leather hurts. The instant gratification of comfort is not an option when it comes to breaking in real leather boots. Everything about my feet hurt, the arches, the soles even, my toes.

It’s currently day seven of wearing them constantly (possibly falling asleep in them a couple of times. I’m pretty sure I burned a hundred calories). The leather has softened and there are creases from using them like they should be.

The good things in life will take cultivation and time. At some point, durable things will involve pain but if you can last through it, it makes it all worth it.
