Last week was really trying... And if I could just choose to be alone from everyone except for my blogger peeps for a while, I would. And Simon and Garfunkel's "I Am A Rock" really comes to mind:
"I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty
That none may penetrate
I have no need for friendship
Friendship causes pain
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain
I am a rock
I am an island."
As cheesy as this song may sound (which I so like, by the way), the man has a point. If you read the lyrics further, a lonely life starts to become a little tempting. But it all comes down to only that: a lonely, cowardice life...
What has dampened my young spirit so?
Sometimes, some people just make me tick... No specifics. :)
So, I have laid out my heart to you all, as vulnerable as it makes me. I need a forgiving heart... I thank Jesus for continually redeeming the fallenness of my heart.
