:: wrapping paper ::

Trying…

…to…

…wrap…

…my…

…head…

…around…

…a LOT…

…of things.

Am certainly wondering why the struggle so. And why now. It’s supposed to be ‘break time’.

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. – 1 John 2:15-17

So there are some things that i’m asking for. And i feel almost guilty for even asking. I never did do everything just to earn brownie points. The ultimate goal is still to please You. It’ll help though, to not worry about little things. And have different things blow up in your face.

Just needing some encouragement. I know in my heart of hearts, You are still faithful.

The thing about wrapping papers. They’re beautiful. Pretty prints in all kinds of texture. Wrapping pretty things. Different people use different wrapping paper. Different people have different styles of WRAPPING paper. Some fold, some use cellophane tape, some use double-sided tape. Some add ribbons. All to make that one thing being wrapped, a surprise. And most definitely, pretty.

But the thing about wrapping papers is…

…they still tear when you attempt to get to whats inside.

No matter how neatly you folded. How carefully you’ve taped it up.

You tear it anyway.

Cause the pretty thing inside the wrapping is supposed to be worth it.
