This week has been crazy, and I feel terrible about not blogging in forever. I have fifty million posts trapped in my brain, but unfortunately a New Deal essay, Crime and Punishment analysis, and scholarship applications have jumped to the front of the line. In addition to my normal crazy life, I got a sinus infection and played in an indoor soccer tournament. Oh, and my sister comes home from college tonight, and our room is a mess.
Through this craziness, I have been reminded that no one can handle life on their own. Life is crazy. Life was not meant to be easy. Life certainly doesn't understand when "I'm done."
Life takes mommy's hugs. Don't tell me you're too old for mommy hugs, you know when you need them.
Life takes cups and cups (I'm talking giant cups) of coffee.
Life takes friends who bring you coffee when you run out.
Life takes naps.
Life takes upbeat, praise music.
Life takes cupcakes.
Life takes M&M's
Life takes chocolate ice cream--it's just been one of those weeks, okay.
Life takes stupid laughter.
Life takes faith that God's going to give you the sanity to actually socialize with people.
Life takes trust that God hasn't let your life spiral out of control.
Life needs you to remember you're not the boss.
Life needs you to look to Him for the solutions, not just an ear for complaining.
Life needs you to surrender more than your future to God's will. Each day needs to be sacrificed to His perfect plan.
Look at life as a way to grow closer to God, not to get more from God.
Has you life been running in circles? What have you seen God do in that craziness?
