First true thing: I have a bruise on my face from where I punched myself yesterday.
Yes. That’s right. I punched myself.
And my sister asked me through her laughter – ‘why don’t you ever post stuff like that on your blog?’ so I have. So there.
Second thing that’s true: life is swallowing me a little today with its ambiguity. It’s distracting me with whispers of potential treasures or torments lurking around the corner. And I’m scrambling madly to prepare for things that are not promised.
And I’m desperate today to remember this:
“God is the highest good of the reasonable creature. The enjoyment of him is our proper; and is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Better than fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of any, or all earthly friends. These are but shadows; but the enjoyment of God is the substance. These are but scattered beams; but God is the sun. These are but streams; but God is the fountain. These are but drops, but God is the ocean.” – Jonathan Edwards
May God grant me the faith to see Him as He is; that the treasures of this world may go strangely dim in light of Him.
