125 days to go.

Late Entry.

Listened to podcasts today among other things.

I made beautiful chocolate cupcakes with edible mini gold stars on them for a B’s birthday party. We all got dressed up and had Greek food. My cupcakes were beautiful but tasted like the one ingredient I used that was expired. Vegetable oil. Bad mistake.

Remember (from the podcast I listened to): 1 Corinthians 13:11-When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.

The interesting thing about this verse is that when you grow up, you put away childish things, NOT I put away childish things and then I grew up. If you are a grown up, put away childish things, things that benefited you as a child but don’t benefit you now. As a kid there are things you gotta do, gotta say, gotta understand in a childish way. But you aren’t a child anymore. You gotta put away that childish stuff. It’s time. You’re too old to keep acting this way. You are following people you should be leading. You are letting people pay your way when you should be paying their way. You are acting insecure when you should be handing out confidence to the little people. Stop looking at the ground and get your head up. Pull your hands out of your pockets and start directing traffic (starting with your own traffic). Sleep when you gotta sleep. Wake up when you gotta wake up. Be honest. Discipline yourself. Forgive. Take the high road. Pray for those you don’t like-ask God to bless them.
