so many ways my life could have gone
so many turns that could have been wrong
yet is this exactly where god wants my life
will it always be filled with failing and strife?
i'm not like the prophets i can't hear his voice
it's not like i'm judas - not given a choice
deep in the heart they said i'd be free
deep in the heart i've found all but me
five hundred thirty days have passed all too fast
the sunshine is fading the daylight won't last
oh where is his calling where does his path go
if i do not act - no solutions i'll know

often i think
dream if you will
and i smile
on occasion you
don't have the time
and please know i'm fine
at least i have you
over these months
don't fret if you
and don't feel
that time's on your side
oh i think of you my
dearest of friends
and i realize
all i can do is

words elude me
over and over
to look back
and wonder why
whatever the cause
it doesn't matter
time has passed
new loves found
(and for me lost again)
we walk on
of life and love
i was never
a good friend
but never forgotten
be stronger than i
ever allowed them to be
and so i say
for showing me friendship
for loving me

I promise this'll be the last time, for a very long time, that I officially switch blogs. I mean, I might write on here every now and then for the next two months, but past that I doubt at all.
So please visit http://jamesdavidpierce.blogspot.com/ and read your hearts away, comment away, and scrutinize and love.
Because I love you.

apparently you actually are interested in any sort of goings-ons in my life.
it's hard to write about it though - because when it comes to big life plans and decisions i'm more of a one-on-one type of guy. or really in terms of any conversations. but there are some of you that i won't see for a while, and so i suppose this merits the information to be shared here.
one of the whole reasons for having a blog right? makes sense, i guess.
this move's been a long time coming, and still the countdown is at 80 days today - but in 80 days i will be driving myself over to the small state of texas, in the city of san antonio. between now and then i have a lot going on, so that is why it is 80 days and not 10, but i figured i might as well let the cat out of the bag to surprise as few people as possible.
and i think the emotion of it all is slowly starting to set in. seeing my older sister cry when i told her last night wasn't helpful. the constant "why are you moving, again"s won't get old, but why do i second-guess myself whenever someone asks that question? i was reminded last week though, that if i go off of emotion and feelings then i'm going to stay - and not move in the direction i truly know i'm supposed to go in. people are going to be sad to see me go, and people are going to be happy to see me arrive - which isn't necessarily a catch 22, but the phrase sounds good enough to use.
i'm going to miss my family tons. yes.
i'm going to miss my friends lots. yes.
the beach. yes.
the weather. yes.
lots more. yes.
no, i don't know where i'm going to work yet.
i don't know who i'm going to live with.
i don't know a lot of things.
but i know i'm supposed to go. i know things will work out all in due time.
and i'm more than excited to see how everything happens and where my life is headed.
