"I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden..."

So what happens when you are being an upgrateful jerk and you just didn't get A) what you wanted and B) what someone promised?

Sometimes maybe we just don't deserve it. I, for one, am glad I don't always get what I deserve because eternity in hell is where I would be. But sometimes, I think I should get a little more.

Sometimes people just can't do what they promised. They try and it's not their fault, it just doesn't work out.

So this ungrateful little B word wanted something, and I didn't get it all. I got a good amount, but not what I wanted. And I cried, almost the whole way home, but my good friend, Tonya, kicked me in the b-hind and put it into reality (because afterall when we are being idiots, that's what our friends do, kick us in the b-hind). Sometimes I just don't want to live in reality. Sometimes the reality I live is too Jerry Springer-esk.

And because I acted like an idiot, I decided to do something that needed to be done, that I hated (yes, I gave me my own punishment). Trash at Metro. Most of you know how much I hate garbage, and you know what? Somehow it made me feel better. I am so wierd.

Somehow being in God's house, doing work that needed to be done, made me feel better. I love serving. I am so wierd.

Matthew 13:47 "Or, God's kingdom is like a fishnet cast into the sea, catching all kinds of fish. When it is full, it is hauled onto the beach. The good fish are picked out and put in a tub; those unfit to eat are thrown away. That's how it will be when the curtain comes down on history. The angels will come and cull the bad fish and throw them in the garbage. There will be a lot of desperate complaining, but it won't do any good." (msg)
