Introspective, Glorious Monday

Today was my day off, and I'd say it went pretty well.

I'm having one of those days, one of those moments in life right now, where I keep going back and forth between cutting my hair {short! no, long! no, short!}; where homework seems irrelevant; where naps and long, frequent stretches of reading are becoming the norm; where I'm struggling to open up my Bible, and yet getting such glorious insight when I do. Today was a phone conversation with my best friend, and yummy pasta leftovers for dinner, and penning strings of sentences for my novel. It's been a very off-center, odd and gloriously off-beat day.

And maybe I'm feeling nostalgic for a time that I wasn't born in. I look back through old photographs and see my family and the way they smiled back then, and wish I had been a part of it. And time makes things different; all of our bodies change, and our clothes grow old and faded, but inside, we are still the same soul. I don't know what any of this means, but this is what I think, what I feel.

I guess what I'm discovering is that each moment is a gift, filled with people and places and things I don't deserve. I'm so grateful for every tiny detail the story of my life has consisted of thus far, and I'm excited to see where God takes me next.

Yeah. It was a good day off.
