Seven days of saying thank you and I find:
That I find it very difficult to hold just one thought in my head the whole day.
That I am grateful for a lot of things;
-my Mum…I love her and I think she’s beautiful
-my sisters…they love me
-my boyfriend…he makes me feel like a man
-myself…I have faith, will travel
That Life isn’t that complicated. Say sorry as you go along.
That I like being respected, that this is the path to arrogance.
That arrogance makes me ugly.
That I enjoy being with Jesus.
That I’m embarrassed about that depending on who knows.
That everybody wants to be appreciated.
That I’m ready for change.
I found today, that I really don’t understand myself. That I don’t know what make me tick, that I’ve never thought it was important.
I’d like to understand myself but I’m afraid of becoming too self-centered.
I’m a lucky human being. I have so much that I have not worked for.
I enjoy having a purpose in life, and seem to have forgotten what it is.
Around the camp fire today, Jesus talks of aliens and exotic technology. He tells me that there is much of the purpose of life that I do not understand. He speaks about the after-life and says, it is not as I think it is.
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!” (Psalm 100)
