What. A. Mess.
This site has gone through countless iterations, version after version which at the time I considered as my ‘ultimate’, only to be completely overhauled when I see one problem, which leads to two, which leads to the strong temptation to start all over.
It’s been known as ‘Growing Up For Idiots’ (Obviously should’ve been ‘Dummies’ but for some reason, I stood by my mistake), and ‘jb.redeemed’ at some point. When I was (effectively) fooling myself by putting too much thought and effort into photography, it became known as a photo-portfolio con evangelism site (because apparently, I’ve been putting too much thought into my beliefs as well), ‘Hope In Sight’… resulting in landscape shots with Bible verses which… well, aren’t half-hearted, but definitely not whole-hearted either.
But here’s the thing. When I stopped caring about what people thought, and when I stopped pressuring myself to share like a ‘good Christian’ should… That’s when I started gathering my thoughts, and inadvertently sharing – no, shining Christ, because He is good.
With that said, I’m really not comfortable sharing anything here… actually, it’s pretty ironic that I’m here typing all this… Because right now I’m all for advocating that we can talk without speaking, and we can write without words. In Tagalog, ‘anlabo.
But that, I gather, is part of how I was made: I complicate simple things and I simplify complicated things.
And though I must admit that most of the writing here is actually for me more than anyone else, I do pray that whoever does stumble upon here gets what he or she is looking for – God forbid that I confuse, but to clarify and encourage everyone else to clarify themselves, and constantly.
But for now, and unto forever… Christus est, ergo sum. Oh, that you would know, so I would know, that you would know, ad so ad infinitum.
Thanks for visiting my site.
