things have been wild. I keep meaning to blog about the many, many adventures I’ve been having but as soon as I sit in front of my laptop, my mind goes blank. I can remember a time when there was nothing I wanted to do more than blog about my thoughts, write about my day, and read what others were saying and doing… but the times, they are a-changin’.
I think the reason for my writer’s block is this: When you’re sad, you want the whole world to share in your sorrow, your tears, your self-loathing and your self-pity. It almost feels as if sharing your heavy thoughts will somehow lighten your load. However, when life is sunny and bright with possibilities and when you’ve found something that brings you a seemingly endless amount of joy, you want to hold that joy as close to your chest as possible, tightly gripping it, basking in its warmth and hoping that it never goes away. You don’t want to talk about it, you just want to enjoy it.
I’m in the latter part of that statement. So, Tumblr, forgive me while I hold this joy close to my heart. I’ll be back one of these days, but not just yet.
Saw this on my dash, and I’m sorry, but I really hate these comics.
Jesus is not a sad white man pleading with you to love him so he doesn’t cry. He is the king and author of life, and has given you the opportunity to love Him. He by no means needs us, but in His goodness allows us to join with the universe in singing His glory.
Jesus doesn’t need our guilt. He demands our devotion.
