I'm sorry...

I know I haven't posted a lot recently. I guess it's partially because I'm lazy and don't feel like typing up a post and partially because I feel like I have nothing to talk about. I've literally started making like 5 or 6 posts recently and then didn't post it for one of the reasons above.

Thanks to anyone who was praying for me and my cold, lol. I'm feeling better, though I have a little cough that's lingering.

Oh, and here's a random thing to think on: What if we were liberal in our judgment of others, but conservative in our own life choices? Just a thought I had the other day.

It's funny to me how your mind work when you're young. I've been thinking recently about things I thought on as a little girl(like 8 or 9 and down). It's funny how my view of life then was so things were so bigger than life, in a way, or at least I thought they would be when I reached a particular point. And on the contrary, how my little mind just could not comprehend other things until I was old enough to really understand them.

One of these 'things' is being a teenager. Oh my, that was so huge and almost 'unimaginable' as a child. But now it is so different from what I was expecting. I thought my world would totally change, but it didn't. Part of that is because of my faithful parents who didn't change their expectations for me. But, I think it's a funny, but good example for me today. Things are always as huge as our little minds can make them to be and on the other hand, we can never comprehend the riches God has for us until we get to particular points. I'm sure I'll look back at my life at 30, 60 and 80 years of age and I'll say things quite like I'm saying now. But then, I'll be talking about my teens and twenties and so on. :)

I certainly know what you're saying there about when you were a kid. It's really kind of weird. I think about that a lot but I still wonder why everything seemed so different through younger eyes. I think part of it may be the way we look back now, though. Like, we remember things differently than they actually were, which could definitely be a part of it.
