Knit, Pray, Love

No, I didn't create that catchy title...I was listening to K-Love and they had just played this song by Matthew West called "My Own Little World":

I was convicted. I may not come off as selfish, but I am. And I am not a generous giver, so that is my main thing to work on right now. They followed the song with a pitch for "Knit, Pray, Love", where you can knit hats and blankets for babies and moms in Afghanistan. For once, it stuck with me...I can knit, and why not knit for a good cause? It's all about taking time to knit and pray for these women and their babies. I'm excited for it.

Last night was one of those nights where I remembered every single one of my dreams. I had a dream that I got 9 tickets, a smashed back windshield and a hate note on our van for leaving it for 30 seconds in the middle of a parking lot. I literally thought that I was going to have to spend a ton of money and I had resigned myself to it in the dream. Then I woke up and was hugely relieved. That's only one of the dreams...the rest were pretty crappy as well.

Needless to say, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. But today is a new day and I'm determined to make the most of it. It's just a mixed up morning...that's all.

Last night I went to my old college church, The Annex, and it was strange. Good, but strange. Luckily I knew a handful of people. But during the meet and greet I probably would've been better off shaking hands with myself, honestly. I figured that would happen...and it also made me realize that I made the right decision in moving on. And yet, I can't bring myself to go back to theMILL. Neither place feels like home right now. I guess we'll see how that progresses as the week moves on.

"I don't love her because she's beautiful, she's beautiful because I love her." 

- Practicing the Presence of People by Mike Mason

Now when you take this quote for it's whole meaning, and not just focus on "oh my gosh he's saying she's not beautiful!"...I like it a lot. Because it is so true that a woman blossoms when loved by a man. As I'm sure is the other way around. Did I mention this couple is in their 80's? I want this to be in my marriage.

I love Chick-Fil-A. Most of you who are close to me know my borderline obsession, so it's not really anything new. I love this video and thought you guys might enjoy it :)

"are you gonna lift this madness or are you going to bury me?"

So I was driving down York when I looked over and saw this bull chillin' in the field of a nearby house. I initially drove past, but for some reason it struck me enough to reverse, stop, and take a picture of it. Luckily no cars were coming either way :) That's right, I'm one of those people now. I wish he would've been looking at me for the picture, but I couldn't stop any longer.

Anyways, today was ok. Went down to the Cherry Creek Mall by myself today, and I was actually fine. I don't think it's weird to go to a mall by yourself...people don't even give you a second glance. Plus I didn't have much of a choice since everyone else was busy! And honestly, I hate when that keeps me from doing things. When it comes down to it, who really cares if I'm alone? My day got a whole lot better starting with the winning touchdown of the Broncos in overtime! I'm not a huge football fanatic but even I can agree that it was SWEET! After I went to theMILL and saw a bunch of lovely friends. Then Buffalo Wild Wings to top the night off.

There are things I could write about, but I don't think I have the words. So for now, I'm signing off. Goodnight :)

For the new year, I didn't really make a resolution out loud. But I think my big one is to let go of what I want. Not necessarily let go of my dreams and passions, but let go of how I think my life should be. I want to be completely open. The thing I am most excited for this year is CHANGE! Hopefully a new job, new place to live, and a new relationship. Who knows when and how, but I know those things will eventually come. For now, I will just keep reminding myself that everything works out in the end.
