Micah, my fiance, will be the first to tell you I can be a little too sensitive. I can also be a little too analytical, emotional and finicky. BUT, I can say (when I remember) I'm overwhelmed with joy by little things as well.
Is it just me, or does a fresh set of warm socks feel good on your feet when you wake up in the morning? Does your cereal taste better when you add just a little bit of sugar/splenda/stevia to your milk? Does a quick compliment from your boss make your day? How about a smile and wave from a passing car?
These little things simply tickle my heart. I guess that's the good part about being a little too sensitive. I can let the GOOD little things affect me more too. I think that's what God intended when he created this beautiful world full of little things.
One of my favorite little things is my pomeranian, Bambi. She is such a delight. Although, she tends to bark at the slightest spur in the wind, she brings so much joy to my life in the littlest of ways. :)
So... Take a moment. Take a breath. Enjoy your little things.
Sick of watching others scarf down donuts and not even think twice about it?
I know I sure am. And that's why I order from HoleyDonuts.net. It's basically the coolest thing ever. :)
On average, each low-fat donut has about 3 grams of fat and 160 calories - which is nearly a quarter of a regular donut! Get in on the action by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, mention my blog and your donuts will come fresh to your door. You can finally have your cake(donut) and eat it too!
Today, my mind's been going a million miles per hour. Not that that's unusual for me! However, I've also had a few small moments where I've reflected on how God's moving in my life. And man, is he moving fast!
One of the greatest truths I've learned in my journey from "student-hood" to the real, adult-world, is the fact that no matter how much my mind gets out of whack, I can tell all my secrets to God. And He's the only one who can unlock my heart and unburden me from all my stress, fears and anxious thoughts.
I tend to over-analyze the crap out of everything. Although I can usually recognize when I'm doing it, I still do it. The apostle Paul said, "The things I do, I wish I wouldn't do, and the things I wish I would do, I do." We all can relate to that statement. The hardest part for me is letting go, and knowing God is the ONLY one who has control. If I trust Him and take a deep breath, I'll be fine.
So I'm going to continue to give God the key to my heart, and tell Him all my secrets. It's refreshing. You should try it.
