Random, Stimulating Thoughts

"There comes a time in your life where you grow, you change, you find yourself somewhere deep inside, sometimes this phase of life is wonderful, as it should be. The discovery of new things, the excitement of life and the love and warmth it brings. But sometimes its not beautiful. Sometimes the changes are unwelcome because they bring anger, bitterness and resentment from loved ones. Sometimes these changes are so strong and so different from before that saying goodbye is the only way to move forward. But through this part of life whether beautiful or gray, there will be a blossoming flower, even if it is a time of hurt, of tears and of loneliness, the result will be a smile, a memory of the good times and a looking forward to the future."

^I found that. I think it says a lot of what I feel.

Today I was listening to a CD and in between the songs, there was this challenge from the artist that I had never heard and that you wouldn't hear unless you listen through the CD without skipping tracks, anyway, I think this is a good thing to remember. "Kings don't wear crowns in crowds for what? They're more smart than that." :)

Also, I need to pick a song to play with my slide show for graduation at church. I'm having some trouble, because I love so many songs and so many different kinds of music. If anyone has any suggestions, I would definitely entertain them.

Wow. That is challenging. That is also just what I needed to hear today. I am struggling with some recent changes God has allowed to happen in my life and it is hard not to be upset or bitter. I want you to know you are in my prayers. Please pray for me also if you ever think about it...

I think I know how you're feeling (but I'm not entirely sure about that...). Sometimes life is so hard and difficult to get a long with. Seriously.
But anyway, my pastor said this in one of his sermons recently: "We must desire to be holy more than we desire to be happy."
Maybe there's a reason life's not always wonderful...

I really like that quote!

oh, and I can't help you with the song. Eric and I are doing one video between us for graduation, so we have to agree on a song. We haven't come to any conclusion, but it might be something by Rascal Flatts.
