my car's for sale

wanna buy it?

1996 VW Passat GLX VR6 Wolfsburg Edition.
192,000 miles
brand new brakes
brand new door handles
new clutch, starter, tires, tie rods, bearings, plugs, wires.. all within the last year. It also get's close to 30 miles to the gallon, which is awesome.
It's a great car, I'm just upgrading. The engine is in great shape and should last for a very long time.
I'm asking $3500... In Fair condition it's worth $3800, but with all the money I've put into it over the last year, I would rate it in good condition. The only thing that would not make it in great condition is the body. It has a little rust and some minor paint chipping. let me know if you know of someone who's interested!

Okay.... The first thing that comes to your head: someone you know and care about tells you they want to kill themself... go.


I have heard a lot in my day (at the ripe age of 27, I know), but this one takes the cake. How in the world do you begin to process something like this? The first and obvious is to immediately find them some help. Got it. Then what's my role? what do I say? There have been many moments of silence in conversations with this soul, too young to die, much to young to ponder death. I guess my only reasonable answer is Love.

thought process #1

I'm a person who wears my emotions on my sleeve. I feel tough today though. I feel almost caloused from the emotional wear i have been going through. Just when I think I'm in one place with my emotions, they are forced completely to the other end of the spectrum... like a fish getting hooked and jerked backwards... I wish the hook would have just ripped out from the force, but it didn't.
So now I've gone through the ringer... I feel like I'm prepared to handle just about anything... is this an extension of God's grace? Somehow my emotional exhaustion has left me with the feeling of empowerment. Maybe I'm being too modest.
Maybe I have more to offer now... to who or what remains to be seen.
