I've finally gotten my brother back! Beth's monkey's (whom I watched as she was gone) have been given back to her. . Right now we're all jamming out in the living room, and Alex and dad just got back from getting coffee at starbucks and a video camera for Jess.
This was something I wrote yesterday outside when the sun was just setting, I was by myself sitting on the ground next to our gazebo... alone thinking about Heaven... as I started writing excitment filled me... these are the words that came from my heart.
This Adventure Awaits
A rippling breeze
A sunset of ease
Warmth that does not cease
What is this place?
Joy radiates off of my face
It fills my soul with excitement
This is the place where I’ve been sent
Never ending days of adventure
Filled with nights so pure
I could always be sure
That I would never have to leave
And this comfort I receive
The joy of being where I belong
My heart breaks into beautiful song
I am in the place where I always wanted to be
I am in the place I longed to see
I am finally here… I am finally free
From all the misery of my mistakes
Thinking of it all my heart wakes
I sit here completely in love
To the Home I have finally come
Words cannot describe my delight
But I will try and explain the sight
This marvelous place where all is right
The joy that fills your soul overflows
It never stops it only grows
Those perfect places you always dreamed of…
This is it… it is perfect… full of love
You breath in and you couldn’t have drawn in a fuller breath
But the next is even more in-depth
In this place where there is no death
Your comfort never leaves
There is always something new to perceive
You never grow weak, only stronger
You days are never shortened, they only become longer
The sky above never ends
No matter how far you should ascend
There is always another bend
It goes on forever
There’s always something new to discover
Come through and enter the gate
This adventure awaits
I can't wait!
Have a great day at church tomorrow!
-----10-15 minutes later-----
okay, so i have to wait another 20 minutes before I can go to bed so that I can switch out the laundry so that I have the shirt i want to wear for church clean. I know, I should have done this during the day, but I'm a horrible procastinator and now i have to pay for the consequences. I can't really think of anything to write... but I'm afraid if I try to do somethign else (like read or write or something more productive) I'll fall asleep (which would be bad). So this is more for my own sake then for your entertainment. . Well, Beth came over and hung out for a while after they got back from the Worship Conference... that was mad fun! Beth is probably one of the coolest people in the world and i'm not gonna lie! high five girl!
So, earlier today and yesterday evening when I was writing 'This Adventure Awaits' I had a sudden sense of this isn't the place (earth) where all my dreams are necassarily gonna come true. there are the deeper dreams of what I specifically want to do with my life... I've always wanted to be a writer, but I want to be a mom more, and I was thinking about how that might clash... but then I was thinking... 'hey, you can write all you want here... but think of all the greater things you're gonna be able to write about in Heaven and how much more TIME you're gonna have!' I got pretty excited! Also I'm pretty much looking forward to getting rid of all these scars I've got... I was telling somebody the other day that I couldn't wait for Heaven so that all my scars would dissapear, and since the scar on my leg has been acting up a lot lately (as in causing some intense pain) I'm pretty much lookign forward to the day when it's gone! And I've always wanted to be able to sing... well... anybody that knows me knows I can't sing... so now that you know me... i can't sing... (rephrase that, 'I can't sing well.). I'm hoping that in Heaven that I'll be able to sing beautifully, not only with my voice, but with my heart. And I can't wait to see the stars! I love the stars... and i want to go to Neverland someday... hehehe. sorry, inside joke between me and somebody else.
I think that my laundry is pretty much done. Don't feel bad if you have only skimmed through this, or even just saw it and went somewhere else cause you didn't feel like reading all of it! I understand completely (probaby cause I've done it to you one time or another) . Have a great day!
