I’m so thankful I can incorporate my one word, thankful, into my favorite Friday activity – Five Minute Friday, which I confess takes longer than five minutes for me to compose because I’m a
deep slow thinker, but only takes five minutes to read. That counts, right? This week, the word is world.
I think I have a hard time living in this world because I am a realist. As hard as I try to see the world through rose colored glasses, I fail. Oh, most days I start out with good intentions, but then something happens that brings me crashing back into reality.
The world doesn’t like me. On the days I’m in a really happy mood (maybe 1 or 2 out of every 10), the world shoots me down for being too much. On the days I’m not happy (8 or 9 out of 10 days), the world doesn’t like that either, questioning what’s wrong with me. How can I win?
I am a misfit in a world that is like a game with too many rules I cannot figure out. I wish I didn’t care. If I didn’t care, I could wear the rose colored glasses and pretend the world is just fine.
So the million dollar question I ask God, how am I supposed to be a light in a world I don’t understand? I’m still waiting for his answer.
