Lent 9: thanking thoughts

Share on FacebookEmail this to someoneTweet about this on TwitterPin on Pinterest

Day 9!  I’m honestly surprised I’ve made it this far.  (I mean, in Lent writing, not in life – although, that too).

I’m exhausted tonight. Much to do and no time to write, but discipline is only discipline if you do it when you don’t have time or inclination.

Here’s a feeling I have today: gratitude.  I’m thankful.  Filled with thanks. Much of it.

Cause I’m here in this moment in my life and I love the Gospel, and, because of the story I’ve been given, I don’t love it in the way most people talk about loving it, but I love it in a way that changes me deeply and irrevocably and makes me actually different.  And it makes me actually free to love people differently than I ever thought I would and I am free to be in reckless and ridiculous relationships with others because of the story I’ve been given, and I see that playing out in my life.

And I get to work with amazingly creative people and I get to go to school.  And I have like three of my dream jobs all at the same time.

And it just feels like – if all of the pain and all the chaos lead me here: to a place where I love better and fuller and I believe more deeply and freely and I care less about stupid things and more about people – then, thank you.

Those are all my thoughts today. <3
