Getting to know you, getting to know EVERYTHING about you...
Well folks this has been an interesting week, my eyes have been opened to see who some people really are and that my view of them needs to change drastically. I'm starting to understand their little quirks and mannerisms and it's made life that much easier. YEY FOR THAT!
Also on a This is good note, I was shopping yesterday at my place of work, nonchalantly walking down the aisles when I saw a superbly amazing acquaintance of mine, she ran over saying how she was praying that she would see me here so she could give me my birthday present.
Now I have hung out with this girl maybe three or four times, always in a group, and I barely even know her, I can't even pronounce her last name, and she went out of her way to make me not one, but two, homemade gifts. I was astonished, she made me a super choice notebook out of an old Air Supply album cover (GOLDEN!) and also some home made lip gloss, so rad.
The best part was the little note inside that she wrote me, saying how nice and hospitable she thought I was and that she also believed that we had this strong connection even though we know so few things about one another, needless to say my little Grinch heart grew three sizes in that moment.
She also noted this bible verse: " and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the holy spirit that was given to us." Romans 5:5 NASB
What are you so afraid of? Could it be, three simple words, or the fear of being overheard? What's wrong? Let her in on your secret heart.
This very secret you're trying to conceal, is the very same one you're dying to reveal...
Dang nabbit I did it again, I got my heart thump-thumpin thinking maybe, just maybe, we could work this out, that you and I would end up together, but, alas, I think I'm just blowing this out of proportion YET AGAIN!
My mother always told me that having such an avid imagination was a good thing, but it's not, I live in a fantasy world filled with stories I've created and when reality sets in it's nothing like I imagined. Not to say that it isn't equally swell sometimes, but, I do have great expectations.
And just when I think I'm all alone in this dry and weary land you appear, bringing with you all the answers and all the perfect words to sort me out, and that my friends is good.
Isn't it funny how when you are walking down the street you will so easily stray off course to reach that crunchy leaf, to kick that rock further on down the road, or you'll even take those extra few steps just to go jump in a certain puddle, isn't that funny?
Don't you find it funny that something so minuscule and unnecessary can make you change your entire path, the way that you intended to go is no longer a focus but all of your attention is put forth toward this one insignificant thing. Funny right?
I find it kind of funny that things you once held so dear, that were the forefront in your mind, that had complete control over all of your decisions can be thrown to the wayside so quickly by one little thing, it's so stinking funny.
Are you laughing yet? Cause I think I missed the punchline.
