Morning Reflections 7/16/14
- After years of seeing myself as “outgoing” and “extroverted,” I just came to the realization that I’m really an introvert. I tend to need a break from people quickly, and I prefer my alone time. My alone time tends to be even more quiet than before, when I needed music or noise to accompany me. Many times this week, I have caught my self being occupied by complete silence.
- My verse of the day: “And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”” —Luke 12:15. I’ve been doing a lot of worrying lately about getting a new job and paying my bills and trying to get out of debt, and having money to buy/do nice things. But this verse reminds me that I can not get caught up in the things I want. In fact, I need to protect myself from the thoughts of wanting, as they will take my eyes off the true abundance of life.
- I didn’t think I had a problem with money. I didn’t want lots of money. But I have always wanted stuff, and that the trick: “stuff”— clothes, books, electronics, toys, etc— are all adaptations of money itself. So to want them is the same as wanting money. Which puts you in the same trap of “the love of money is the root of all evil” category.
Uplift all up in my life today!!! The attacks have been heavy lately,
Pizza anybody? Tried another dough recipe… This one is better. Has crunch and chew, and rises well without dough having to proof. Used some sauce from a jar, topped with cherry tomatoes and from the farmers market, potatoes, and cheese. Delish!
