Ever hear the Rascal Flatt's song "Too Good Is True"? I've decided it's all a feel-good ruse. :-)
So, it's been a while since I've updated this thing. Between being a college student and waiting tables, I don't have a whole lot of extra time on my hands... Even my Facebook usage has dwindled alarmingly...
Life on this side of Christmas break has slowed... I only have one more paper to write for school, and I've read all but one book that I've been assigned to read. Yay me.
Thanksgiving is fast approaching and bringing with it all the festivity of the holiday season. I saw a sign in someones yard the other day. It said, "Happy Turkey Day!" That irked me, as I'm sure it does every believer who knows that the fourth Thursday in November is about so much more than turkey, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie. As I drove past that sign in my frustrated state of mind, I realized that it had been a while since I'd slowed down to ponder everything that I have to be thankful for, and it occurred to me that I complain on a fairly regular basis. I don't want to be that person... We all know someone like her, the person who never has anything good to say because she's too busy complaining about the fact that boys are stupid or that gas prices are astronomical or that she'd really rather not go to work... I think I'm becoming that person though. And no one has proverbally slapped me for it yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it happens soon.
So, even in the midst of my almost-the-end-of-the-semester-semi-depression, I want to remember that I am blessed beyond measure. That I am bought with the blood of Christ, that my Father has, does and always will take care of me, that I have friends who love me even when I foolishly taper off my time with them to spend it with a boy, that my family loves me and wants me to be around, that my tuition is taken care of, that I have a job, that I don't go hungry, that I have the ability to sing, that the sun is shining and I'm not dead. :-)
If you actually read this, bless you. I'm sure you could find something better to do with your time though! :-) Until next time, I do pray that God will bless your life as richly as He has mine.
Soli deo gloria!
