Random Jibberish and other Great Things
What a boring day! This is terrible! Yesterday was so great! Then, today came! What happened?!
This is seriously ridiculous. I am sitting here at my desk, resting my chin upon a bottle of Diet Coke, trying to think of ANYTHING that I can do…
My brother spent the night at a birthday party last night, and I really wish he would come home so that we can go ride our bikes or go to see a movie or just irritate each other without limits. Can you tell I miss that kid? Well, you’re right, because I totally do.
My parents have gone to teach their dog obedience class. My family own their own business, and a lot of the time, I am called upon to be “employee,” even when I never offered to get hired. I think it’s that way for a lot of kids my age with parents who own a business. And sometimes, we don’t get paid because we’re their children–they pay for everything else in our lives, why should they have to pay us for working for them, right? I dunno whether that’s right or not, but most of the time, I wish I got paid! I’m not resentful to my parents, though, not in the least measurement. I love my parents because they trust me and they let me stay out really late and they DO pay for a lot of the things I do.
Speaking of things I’ve done! I need to mention that, finally, after years of battling it out with God, I’ve committed to sponsoring a child from Compassion International! His name is Karanganwa and he is 11 years old. He lives in Africa in the country Rwanda. When I went to the website to seek out a kid, I didn’t know exactly how I was going to choose. I didn’t really know if I wanted a boy or a girl, how old I wanted them to be, or where they should be from. So, as I saw all the pictures, I just thought to myself, Adopt them all! They’re all so beautiful! But of course, I knew I couldn’t, so I finally asked for God’s divine intervention on my choice! And He did it! He found him! I saw his picture, and I saw his smile, and then, when I saw where he was from, I knew! Last quarter, in my Political Science 101 class, we did this mass research on Rwanda and all the sufferings that occurred there throughout the 1990s! It was devestating! So, when I saw that he was from Rwanda and that he doesn’t have a father anymore, (likely one of the many, many, many men slaughtered during their civil war), I signed up to sponsor him! I am so excited to receive my Compassion packet! I want to write him letters and send him pictures and ask him questions and tell him how beautiful he is! I am so excited about him, I’ve been telling everyone about him!
So, yeah, I am still really bored, but for a moment there, I was really entertained! Whenever I think of Karanganwa, my heart kinda jumps because I’m already beginning to love him so much. I think that’s a Jesus thing because I know that I can do NOTHING without Christ and that includes the ability to love somebody else. I’m really happy that I’m going to be a part of his life.
“Hello, everybody! This is your Captain speaking. We’ve just welcomed another passenger on the plane. Please accept him with open hearts. His name is Karanganwa and he desperately seeks love and support from all of you. Please pray for him. Thank you, and thanks for flying with jeffersonair.”
