Simple Pleasures | eyesofatragedy's Blog
I am always blessed. It depends not on my mood, other people's choices, nor mine. I simply am unconditionally blessed -- a state of being. Whether I'm aware of it or not depends on my state of mind.
But there are certainly times when I not only know that I am blessed, but I feel and experience it. And of course, more-so as I grow in my faith.
Tonight was one of those times.
After my community group's weekly bible study and application time, we brainstormed on what we wanted to do for the rest of the night. We finally decided to get some ice cream and play a game that's similar to telephone and pictionary intermixed. Essentially, each person thinks of a random phrase or thought, writes it down on a paper, then the next person has to draw it out on a different paper, then the next person has to write out what the picture is about, and so on. We began to play; at one point, my friend, T, recognized a friend of hers and invited him over, so he got to partake in our silliness. Seeing the process is so hilarious that no words could describe it!
And honestly, I haven't genuinely laughed for far too long, let alone laughed to such an extent. We were all having hysterics to the points our throats/stomachs started to seriously ache! I had tears in my eyes in certain moments, haha.
And to think, all we had was paper, markers, our imaginations, and most importantly, Christ.
Additionally, I came to learn more about my fellow friends. Any way to learn more about ways to help them is such a gift in my eyes. And to be open to being helped. One of the girls expressed to me that it was easiest talking to me about some of her struggles. She felt I was compassionate and non-judgmental. That did my heart good.
God is so good, all the time. :)
