blessings in disguise

when i'm all snuggled in bed ready to go to sleep and i realize i forgot to brush my teeth
blessing: squeezing in an extra workout into my day before i call it a night

wanting new work pants and finding that petite sizes are only available online and rarely on sale
blessing: budget management  
[addendum - small size also means money saved on food and being able to fit in a CT scanner]

not having a kitchen
blessing: unlike college where i could only afford costco mega packs of maruchan instant noodle, i now have the ability to explore all types of ramen

parents who bug me about the details of my life
blessing: parents who care about the details of my life

instead of dust bunnies, i have bunny furballs constantly floating around my home
blessing: a reminder that i'm never alone.  even if it's just my bunny keeping me company

got my nails done and then ruined them going to the bathroom before the polish dried completely
blessing: a lesson on vanity

see, life is full of small joys!

alive and well

today i was happy to come home to a living bunny.  halfway through my drive back from the bay, i got this deep dreaded feeling that leaving my bunny alone for 4 days in the middle of summer with no water/food refill was not the best way to take care of my best friend.

thank the lord for his resiliency and inability to talk.  cuz if he could, i'd probably get a real bad lecture on reckless parenting.  eek!

Sleep escapes me

We learned a new song in acacia tonight. Gold star for rob who led it and made it sound really cool. When I looked it up on YouTube I was a little taken aback by its early 90s vibe but it's cool.. Groovy electric guitar solo, hippie male harmony, dream master synthesizer and all.

The Lord's my Shepherd I'll not want
He makes me lie in pastures green
He leads me by the still still waters
His goodness restores my soul

And I will trust in you alone
And I will trust in you alone
For your endless mercy follows me
Your goodness will lead me home

He guides my ways in righteousness
and he anionts my head with oil
and my cup it overflows with joy
I feast on his pure delight

And though I walk the darkest path,
I will not fear the evil one
For you are with me and your rod and staff
Are the comfort I need to know

Those team building trust-fall exercises we did in 6th grade camp out in the supervised wilderness made the concept seem so tangible and easy. Falling backwards into the spindly arms of fellow pre-teens was entertaining and fun and provided ante for much late night cabin chatter with my lady friends about which cutie dude got to catch us.

Real life trust is no party in the forest. Sure, there's a peace that comes when you can mentally put aside certain worries into the God compartment of your mind.. eventually. But until then there's no tangible evidence to give you the consolation that hope exists. And that sucks, lemme tell ya!

But as Luke puts it, when you pull the God-card, trusting has to happen. I'm thankful that his mercy is endless and purpose is perfect. And even though I anticipate rainbows and butterflies and magical appearances of unicorns and bubbles and everything that is perfect, I'm trying my best to let his words and promises be true in my heart.
