It’s crazy how fast time is going, I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year. I haven’t been up to much, just the usual. Really can’t say my life is super busy, that would be a lie, I just have my plate full- and you know what? It feels good. I enjoy being occupied; in a positive way of course… Lately I have been drawing a bit, something I wasn’t doing for a while. Mostly women with natural hair; what can I say, it’s appealing to my eyes and it actually relaxes me a great deal. I’m also working on my willpower, the things is, I’m on a diet. I’m trying to lose all the weight I gained during the summer as a result of eating out so much. I am excited about many things in the future but I am trying my best to stay in the moment.
I want to share something that has been happening to me a lot for the past few months. It’s strange but at the same time very interesting. Almost everyday I have conversations with strangers, no it’s not work related. I mean, people I meet in public. They would sometimes be the one to start up the conversation or I would. Yes, I’m quite the social butterfly. :-) Well, what makes the encounters different, is the fact that they would tell me a lot, sometimes too much about their personal life. Sometimes I listen without saying anything, other times I try to find the right words. I met this one guy that was so angry at the world he scared me, yet we sat and we engaged in a really interesting conversation. Then there was guy that told me he doesn’t believe when people say they love each other they really mean it. The kind face older lady that told me about Jesus, said I should not pay attention to the news and that I should pray a lot daily. The homeless man that offered me some of his coffee; I said no. When I offered him some of my food he said he was full. The drunken man in the park that I told to try Jesus… I saw him later with a guy, he told him I’m his friend. That made me smile. :-)
Somehow I always found the right words, or just know when to be silent. It’s quite refreshing, I enjoy each moment. I am learning and growing. I see everyone, I am everyone and everyone is me. I’m no lower or higher. Jesus is love and I’m trying my best to be.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
