just when you thought....

do you ever feel like there are times where you learn something by having it hit you in the head? well here is what I am learning....
** people who are depressed are selfish...... (It is the act of placing one's own needs or desires above the needs or desires of others.) how come I was taught that being selfish was not an option and for others it is.... i wonder if when they are not depressed anymore will they still be selfish?
** no matter the intentions or effort you just can't please everyone, friend, family or foe
** just when you think you've figured out what God is doing.... you are wrong
** people's priorities are remarkably different, it doesn't make any of the people right or wrong, they are just different, for instance, one might worry endlessly about cleaning a tub or toilet while someone else might put most of their efforts on education or relationship. Its all perspective.
**i love back to school. I love new pencils, paper and notebooks, I just don't like that they cost so much
**when you think you have your job figured out and you are in a groove and getting good at it, they change it or someone makes a power play.

With all this in mind, what would I do without
GRACE : Grace can be defined as God's empowering presence in ones life enableing them to do and be what they were created to do and be.
HOPE : to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence.
and a truckload of friends to hang with, laugh with, and pray with...
and a store full of pretty papers, and projects just waiting to be created.
that makes me view look a little better even if I am feeling a bit beat up and weary.
