Just came back from a run. And I must say it surprisingly felt good after not running in over a week. Now I sit in my sports bra and shorts without any plans on showering soon.
Gross. I know.
Did this hoop up just to work on something a little different - think I might do more of these though!
I’ve heard of someone feeling God in the wind, but I have never really thought about what it meant and how it would feel until today. To someone who is distant from God, the phrase seems empty and very cliche. And so it came as a surprise when I felt instantly at peace for a small moment. There was wind. It gave me the biggest bear hug imaginable. And sun. But aside from that, It felt like I was given a new set of lungs, eyes, ears. God has the perfect timing. How many times do I hear people say that? And how many times do I only partially believe it? But it is completely true. I fail and refuse to believe this so many times because I doubt how loving this God is. But He is. And I am grateful.
Kodaline - “All I Want” | A Take Away Show (by LaBlogotheque)
Saw/heard this for the first time today, and I’d have to say Kodaline is pretty wonderful!
It’s not even midnight.
Everyone in this house is asleep. Everyone went to bed two hours ago.
Can I skip sleep and just start tomorrow? I love sleep. I love love love sleep. But, just tonight, it seems like a hassle. It’s weird to look forward to tomorrow after wanting to end the day and sleep forever so badly most of the days. Is this a good feeling? It does feel good. But will it be gone by tomorrow? Who knows.
There are little things that I am looking forward to tomorrow—drinking black coffee, eating cereal, drawing, walking my dog, riding my bike. And these are things that I do almost every. single. freaking. day. But it’s like I’m looking forward to these things for the first time in my life. So I hope this feeling doesn’t go away.
Things are good but so strange. I don’t know up from down, but I think it’s fine as of now.
It’s not the right time. For all I know, he’s probably not even part of the plan. Yet this kid has been swimming in my thoughts for a while, but I truly truly truly just care to be his dear friend. And I am glad of this. It’s difficult. But it’s gotten easier. I care for him so much more as a brother and Godly man than anything else at this moment.
