Why I wrote this: Among my favorite song is Brooke Fraser‘s Arithmetic, and it will forever speak of a love meant for eternity. In the song, she tells about how we humans love keeping score, summing up and deducing things. But nothing in this life matters, really, as compared to being with Jesus in His arms, in His kingdom. So here I am, trying to stop myself from scaling what life gives to me, or what I give to life, but to realize that arithmetic doesn’t co-exist with infinities, which is up there, in the life of salvation.

30 Things Before 30 is a collection of texts and stories to remind me of a beautiful 3-decade existence, and to propel me to pursue much more beautiful, future years.
