Revelations, contemplations, gratefulness and waiting in patience.
Yesterday was my Grandpa's 80th birthday. That is a big number.
It made me think of the two ends of the spectrum, plus some bits in the middle. It made me think of family love and togetherness; of those related by blood or marriage come together and have fun. I enjoyed the beauty of just being a family and the privilege of having each other, even if bonds are not the tightest in the world - At least we are still bonded.
It made me think of openness and instances of getting to know each other (again). I just met second cousins of mine that I have never met before and to be able to talk with them and get to know a bit more about them felt like a real honour. Many people aren't even close to their immediate family; I get the honour of knowing my second cousins.
It also made me think of cracks and possibly fragmented emotions. Of things that cannot be repaired not without the mercy and grace of God. But God works when we accept Him; He's not going to force anything or do anything if we are not ready to receive - defeats the purpose in the first place.
Outside of this spectrum that I was thinking, I realize that whatever I go through in life, someone else has gone through it before. And someone else will go through it eventually. That's the terrible thing about human nature - that we're selfish.
And I realize that waiting in patience and in the peace of God may really be the key to things.
So thank You Daddy God for showing me things and talking to me whenever I pour out to you <3
p.s. Liam Neeson portraying Hannibal Smith on a HDTV screen is AWESOME.
