I haven’t been here in almost a month. My, how time flies. I’ve been going through a bit of a ‘slump’, personally, and just mostly trying to get through that. Thanks to those of you who have stuck with me.
School’s going pretty well…my grades have slacked off just a bit lately. Nothing serious, but I’m sure it has to do with that slump because I have been having a lot of difficulty concentrating, and have been fighting off discouragement. Again, nothing serious. I have hope still…always. One has to have hope or there is nothing. My hope is in my faith. It’s not in other people, for certain, nor is it in myself, nor is it in my circumstances. I fail others and myself.
But that brings me to these thoughts today, about how I’m just not good. There are those who would be ready to come along and say, “I know THAT’s right!” There would be others who would quickly chastise me and try to point out all the good that is in me. But I know who and what I am. I can say honestly that I have a kind heart…I always have. I care about people. But I also have a quick temper…quicker with the age I’ve accrued, for certain. I’ve always been stubborn…very stubborn. But I haven’t always been as opinionated as I am. When I was young, I questioned things deeply, and through that, I developed my opinions and ideas…and the things that I found to be true through it all. Really, the only thing true through it all is the goodness of my Father God and his love and mercy…and the truth of my Christian faith.
