reflection

False Reflections

False reflection, that I see;

Showing nothing wrong with me;

Showing ideal and perfection;

Truly this is false reflection.

I am broken. I will fall.

By no means am I smartest of all.

False reflection, that I see;

Saying more, I must be.

Pride will fall. Beauty is vain.

All things fail without His reign

With my Savior, I confess,

Only can I be at rest.

True reflection, now I see

I am broken, but He is key.

A Rainy Friday. A Full Friday.

Five Minute Friday

Stretch:

A new school year begins.

New books.

New classes

New teachers.

New fears.

I wish I could do everything easily, but the truth is it’s a challenge. I try to think hard enough., I try to be fast enough, but someone always seems faster and smarter. I get frustrated, angry and want to go back to bed. Why bother to stretch? I want to do so many other things. (more…)

A blog post I read that cuts straight to the point of the Chick-Fil-A current event. As for my view? www.ISupportChickFilA.com

It’s a risk to do a lot of things.

I don’t like taking risks.

I like knowing all my options and if I have to do something about it, I’ll pick the path of least risk. Better safe than sorry and all that.

Problem: The path of least risk is not always where God wants you. (more…)

Here it is,

Father’s Day.

I woke up this morning to my Dad bringing in a ladder. He was vacuuming the high ledges and the high walls. The vacuum hangs by a plant hanger.

I smiled.

This Is My Dad. (more…)

Today’s word: Real

Ever since I could remember, I loved to make up stories. It started with my imaginary friend, Ally, and then it moved on to playing spies around our house and neighborhood with my little brother. (more…)

Frustration. Stress. Discouragement.

I sometimes wonder if just thinking about those words brings on their effects.

I start focus on one school subject first (philosophy paper. love/hate relationship). Our internet never seems to work. With two research papers due tomorrow, who can blame me when I tighten my jaw and groan.

It works for 15 minutes…

then stops.

It takes another 30 minutes to make it work again.

I groan and switch pages. Why won’t God help me when I’m trying to focus? (I usually am in and out all day, making up stories in my head) Can’t he make the internet work?

Then the thought hit me. You impatient little girl. How could I not see? I’m lucky to even have internet. What does it matter that it lasts in random moments. Are we not more thankful for something that we must wait for, watch for? Is it not more precious when it is unexpected?

I see I’ve grown a habit of looking at it the wrong way. To think people used to have Ice cream more rarely, to own our own carriage was special and seeing a moving picture…not that was special.

Can we not look at what we have today with the same child-like awe? or must we look at everything as ordinary, slow, babyish, and something that ‘just happens.” Lord let me change my words to special, Your timing, and an idea, no matter how small.

I soon give up and look at the material that I already have. I take it, organize it and realize that if I have gotten more material I would have had too much to sift through.

His timing.

His intelligence…greater than my own.

I may not have gotten all the things I had on my list today, but that’s okay. (Maybe I’ll use some of the reading homework to wind me down tonight.)

Another sunset.
