I must say, today was rather a success… I woke up early (7:30=waaay early for me) and had breakfast in bed! This is nothing out of the ordinary for a person with no dining furniture, the kicker is I have to get out of bed, prepare breakfast, which today only involved cutting a grapefruit in half, and brewing some coffee (komodo dragon blend, of course!) then crawl back in. Maybe, hopefully, one day somebody special will serve me breakfast in bed. Fingers crossed! Pictures, yes?
Anywho, after my yummy yummy ruby red grapefruit, I had a little one-on-one time with my main man, my Lord and Savior. Why don’t I do this more often? How can I truly enjoy a relationship with Him without spending time with Him? Simple answer, I can’t. I feel, in the past 6 months or so I’ve lost focus and some of my lines have been blurred. It happens too easily. I am blessed, though, with a loving God, a forgiving God, a God who wants nothing more than for me (and you) to come back home! Part of my quiet time involved reading day 26 of my daddy’s book, The Jesus Test. This day is called, “Try Going Home.” It was about the story of the prodigal son, pretty famous little story there found in Luke 15:11-32. Basically, a father has 2 sons. The younger son decides to go out on his own, so he asks his father for his share of the estate. He goes off, turns his back on his dad, and finds himself at rock bottom. Thinking to himself that his father’s servants are better off than he, he makes the journey back home. The father sees the son from a distance and runs to meet him. He embraces him and is overcome with joy. In response, the son says in Luke 15:21, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.” (I could say the same to my Father in Heaven). His dad doesn’t care. He is only happy to have his son back. In verse 24 he says, “For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.” Such a powerful tale, and it hit me in the heart. That whole saying, “home is where the heart is,” is only true if you have C-H-R-I-S-T in your H-E-A-R-T, because really, home is where He is. I feel so at home.
Next stop, dentist office. Don’t go there. ever. They are bad news! It’s all worst case scenario with them, sooooo they tell me I MIGHT need a root canal. A $2100 root canal! Ridiculousness…. orrrrr maybe I just need a filling. I’m praying for that option. A-work, a-work, a-work, first day of Audio Engineering 2 (yayayayayayay so stoked for this semester), hit the gym, then went to Target. p.s. super successful shopping trip! New boots, a yoga mat, beef jerkey, organic chocolate milk (because it is the BEST thing to drink after a workout. No, really. Google it!), a cloth for my new car and new love, Coal (mainly to dry him off after a trip through the carwash), and the most darling head wrap… all for under $35! look look!
And nowwww, it is midnight and I’m going back to the gym to pump some iron… sheesh-kabobs! (don’t think that I am ANY sort of fitness fanatic… I’ve been slacking for months and months and months. just now starting the process alll.over.again. and I happened to make weight-lifting plans with someone who is just getting off work)
