So things have been insane lately! I haven’t even had time to post much, which is a shocker. I could spend this whole post blabbing on about doing this and that and the other, but I don’t think I will. There’s so much I could say and so much I should say, but then again so much I won’t. I’m not making any sense…..basically the moral of the story is that life happens. Life is all about learning to take the good with the bad, to figure out why things are happening the way they are and to learn from them. It’s all about finding the people who will be by your side through everything, even the stupid drama fights nobody likes. It’s about knowing why you’re here and knowing that there is a plan and a purpose. It’s knowing that somebody else knows exactly how horrible it feels. And that because you are lucky enough to know that, you have to tell others that don’t know. It’s knowing you aren’t handed things you can’t overcome and that you can do anything. It’s knowing you stand tallest when you’re on your knees and that there is a lesson in every lecture. Life is about knowing that ice cream always makes you feel better and there’s nothing like a good old fashioned chick flick. It’s knowing long drives in the summer are a gift and rolling up the window isn’t an option. It’s knowing you better kiss while you can and sometimes your ink will run out of pen just when you need it most. This is a lot of rambling…but there’s a lot of jumbled thoughts in my head tonight. Basically what I’m trying to say is that it all got put into perspective today, while I was playing for those darling primary kids. They sang this.
It shouldn’t be hard to sit very still, and think about Jesus his cross on the hill, and all that he suffered and did for me, it shouldn’t be hard to sit quietly, it shouldn’t be hard even though I am small, to think about Jesus, not hard at all.
Basically this song is about being reverent. But I also saw it as this slap in the face that the worldly drama stuff I’m so consumed with doesn’t matter. At all. So this week I am going to try and spend more time thinking about Christ. It shouldn’t be hard. Not hard at all.
