I have a ton of things on my mind. I’ll share a few with you and I will try to make it easy to follow. There’s a reason I end all my blogs with “welcome to my brain.” My brain is an adventure, a very complicated, beautiful and crazy adventure. lol
— I’m drinking coffee today which is not the norm for me. (I know I talk about Starbucks all the time but I only go there because sweet Robert fuels my Starbucks addiction with gift cards, I’m not complaining or blaming; please keep them coming. 😉 I usually hit Starbucks on the way to work after a night of being on-call; this is my way of celebrating the end of on-call for the week.) Yesterday while we were at crappy-crappy Wal-Mart, Brandn bought Heath Bar creamer. Yes I took a swig of it when we got home and it was amazing! I’m only drinking coffee this morning so I can have the creamer.
— I hate Wal-Mart. We are in the process of buying a house in Round Rock and the ridiculously, glorious HEB Plus is down the street and this makes me way happier than it should.
— My feelings got hurt this weekend. Did my friend mean to? Nope! Should this have hurt my feelings? Nope! Do I have a problem with making things personal that are in no way personal? Yep! Am I slightly narcistic and like to turn things that aren’t about me into things that are about me? Yep! Maybe this is why I started blogging. I think I’m brilliant and this way the whole world will know I’m brilliant too. And by the whole world I mean tens of people that subscribed to my blog because they felt obligated to because we are family.
— Being totally honest: It’s been a while since I’ve read my Bible. I’ve opened it to look for a particular verse or during Sunday service but to actually read it in my free time for my own personal benefit; it’s been a while. I’m not proud of this. I know I should have quiet time and read my Bible daily. I normally do but the last few weeks I haven’t. I can blame it on whatever I want to, but it doesn’t matter. Jesus doesn’t want my excuses, He wants me.
— I see a crossroads in my near future. I have to make a decision about something I’ve been struggling with for a while now. I didn’t know what to do so I asked God to make it obvious, and He did. I wasn’t very happy about how He chose to make it obvious but that’s what I prayed for and He answered my prayer.
— I pray every morning for God to use me to show His love to others; I hope I did that today. I drove past a lady holding a sign that said “I’m sorry to ask but I lost my job and we need help with food.” Something about her was different. She didn’t make eye contact and it looked like she felt uncomfortable there. I rolled down my window and told her I didn’t have any food or money and all I had was yummy smelling Bath and Body Works lotion and she could have it. She took it and said “thanks, I’m so hot.” As I drove past her I saw an HEB. I ran in and bought her some groceries and a cold bottle of water. As I gave her the groceries for a split second I wanted to ask for my lotion back but I didn’t. That would make me a jerk.
Thanks for allowing me to share my world with you…welcome to my brain.
