So, here are some random thoughts that are not related to one another:
I like the unexpected. Friday night, sixteen of us freshmen went to see Narnia together in Eden Prairie and discovered that five of our pre-purchased tickets were for AMC Mall of America. Fortunately, we were early enough that we still had time to get there (even though we had to run a bit). So, Tia, Jo, Michelle, Som and I made the dash to get there on time. It was sad that we couldn’t be with everyone else, but we had a good time anyway. The movie is incredible (if I start talking about my favorite parts I’ll go on and on) and the four girls in our group cried through several scenes, much to Som’s amusement. When we brought up how our tears were evidences of tender hearts, and that our softness is part of our being feminine, and that our tears make us soft, his remark was something like, “yeah, it makes you wetter too.” And then he insisted that we take the escalator- saying that we were too spent for the stairs after crying so much! Anyway, the night wasn’t what I planned but maybe that was part of the fun.
I don’t like grumbling… especially when it is coming from me. “Do all things without grumbling or disputing; that you may prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life…” ~Phil.2:14-16a I want to be above reproach, radiating life through my words.
I can’t believe that there is only one week left in this semester. It has really flown by. Yeah, it’s hard to believe that I’ve been here that long.
I feel very detached from everything about our internship. It’s strange. I really don’t really feel an inclination towards either place. At this point, I’m really praying about whether or not I am supposed to go. In coming to Bethany, it was my intention, but now I’m not sure about it. It’s not that I have any other plans or options in mind and I’m not saying that I want to leave. I’m just staying open to whatever, wherever. He will make it clear in due time. For now, I haven’t the foggiest idea about what the future holds.
I like taking walks. There is something about being outdoors that just soothes me and I’m able to think more clearly. Such were my thoughts as I took a walk this afternoon. And I am always blown away by the beauty reflected in creation.
He just seems to make everything beautiful.
