Yesterday I greeted by lots of hugs. People I don't see but a couple times a year. AKT Theatre. I know those people because of who I am. Because who I am is what I do. I love. I don't know why this is always hard for me to embrace that people love me for what I do, because it's who I am. God created me to be a giver, really, I was like this from the time I was young, I can remember in Jr. High I carried a ginormous purse, if you needed something, it was probably in there, and if you asked, and it wasn't, the next day it was. Unless it was cinnamon gum, because cinnamon gum is disgusting and should be banned and outlawed.
I believe that we should live our lives as Paul says in Phil 2:3-4 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
I believe that we all should. Not just me. The world would be a better place if people stopped singing the 'meme' song. I can tell you about this one time, it is actually silly really, my friend Katie had a few people over and she made iced tea. I think everyone who was there likes 'sweet tea' (GROSS!) except for me. Usually I know that I'll just drink water because you can't take the sugar out, once it's in. But Katie made it without sugar and had everyone ELSE add sugar, and left it unsweetened for me. Now, in the grand scheme of things and like my grandma used to say 'in 25 years who will know the difference?', I know some iced tea doesn't really matter, but it meant A LOT to me, especially considering that is must have been at least 3 years ago, and I can still remember how everything looked when I realized there was no sugar in the tea. She probably doesn't even remember. But I do.
Sometimes we don't realize how the small things in our lives matter. But they do.
Go. Be. Love.
I love this song! From Edges!
