Sunday, May 8


Its been a rough day, it started with me bruising my back. That bruise caused nausea and has thrown my whole day. The usuall lack of tact from my friends, who usually don't need it, was hard, and really hurt. What is it about a consistent minor pain that ruins our defenses.

There's no easy place to start, some things just aren't safe. When we were young, we were bruised, not necessarily in a huge way or intentionally, but we were bruised in a very real emotion, spiritual, and most likely a physical way. Because our parents aren't able to be 100% attentive and nurturing, we were from time to time let down. In some cases, more so than in others. But those bruises never fully healed, and when something so much as lightly grazes it, it hurts like it's new. It has the potential to destroy our day.

That's why it's important that we grow in character. Character is how we deal when things are hard. The boy scout motto comes to mind, we ough to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, curtious, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. Those traits are a sign of character. And if we can display those things genuinely on a bad day, then we will be able to call ourselves people of God.

god bless you, and keep you rockin' (like you do)
