The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8 I fall short. All the time. I am the furthest thing from perfect, and He’s the only one that loves me for EXACTLY who I am right now. How cool is that. This Earth may crumble, but I will shed my fear knowing that I’m His :))
Laying in bed, thinking: “yes. I made it out alive.” Let’s just say today was not my cup of tea. Saw a man have a seizure at our church BBQ. This was the first seizure I’ve ever witnessed, besides my own. To see the terror and worry in everyone’s faces, and to see the demon in the man’s eyes, killed me. That has been me. I have had that possessed feeling. And...
That's just life. No worries.
I’ve recently learned that some things don’t last forever. There are friendships that will dwindle and there are opportunities that will fade. But the thing I figured out that surprised me a bit: It’s all good. People come and go, but it’s the impression you made in their life that truly matters. Time doesn’t matter; it’s love that’ll last.

This afternoon I found myself thinking, “I can’t wait for today to be over.” Weird. Today hasn’t even been that terrible of a day. Maybe it’s time for an attitude adjustment? Moral of the story: appreciate yo’ life. It could always be worse.
It’s hard not to say “what if,” but it is what it is. I’m just doing the best I can and hopefully that’ll work.
I have a dream to one day open a development center for mentally disabled people. This is my first vivid image of a goal that I honestly believe was God given. My mission field. This is what I see: Day classes for all ages. From nursery to elderly. These classes would teach the patients to socialize and help to gain skills that are necessary in life.
