I’ve been thinking a looot.
And talking to God a loooot.
And realizing just how true it is that we put the good parts of us, the best parts of us, on social media, and try to hide the ugly parts of us. When I blog about my day, I don’t blog my own mistakes or awkward moments, my tiredness or sometimes moodiness, my moments of procrastination. I blog the interesting parts that I hope will be helpful, but I want to disclaim that I guess.
This morning my beautiful older sister graduated university, so I attended her grad with my fam. I am so wordlessly proud of this lady and all her hard work, kindness, and genuinity. I cannot wait to see where she goes next!
Krystal is such an others-focused lady in so many ways and has been such an incredible support to me my whole life.
After the grad, Johnny and I were fortunate today that we were both working from home today! So after a quick work meeting, I got to work alongside Johnny which was so special, if that makes sense. Because I’m so proud of him. And his work ethic, professionalism, intelligence, and empathy absolutely blows me away. We worked well together but also took breaks to check in with each other, listen to music, and just chill.
My kind, thoughtful man took me grocery shopping then before Youth group, where I was again reminded of something huge Jesus is softly convicting me of late– putting others first.
- My own instant gratification or pleasure
- My agenda or routine
- My preconceived notions
Listening to others. Ready heart to serve. Open to the fact that every person is coming with a different set of experiences and perspectives.
Johnny and Krystal reminded me of that today in the way they love, smog other people. More importantly, Jesus Himself did and will forever continue to.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
Also I saw these balloons at youth tonight and thought life is too short not to carry around balloons as if you’re a little child🎈
