As I Cope, As I Hope...

I'm sleepy... soooooooo sleepy... I don't feel like writing about anything but Sleeping...

Well, I suppose I should write about something so that you nice folks continue to stop by... First, I want to say thank you to all the nice folks that have responded to me in some form or another about last night's post. I really felt good and your kindness towards a strange goof like me was very heartwarming and renewed my faith in mankind... okay, I'm not ready to hit the dating scene anytime soon (my personal target date to go back on the dating circuit: July, 2035... ha!) but I feel like I'm moving on in my life and look forward to spending time with friends and some family and just being a dork... that's what I look forward to getting back to being the most!
That doesn't mean I don't miss my past... but it was for a season and it appears that season is over. So now I have to look forward to the future. I have opined to a number of you about the value of hope... well, it's about time to continue that theme and take some of my own advice... Hope... it's what sustains...

Okay, 5 things I hope for:

1- Spend more time in the Word. I've been doing more of that online and it's helped me considerably... And making friends that believe has also given me strength in my faith.

2- I'd like to see my hockey team make it to the national championship in Philadelphia...

3- I hope the women's football team I work for will actually win a game this year...

4- I wish my ex girlfriend happiness and success wherever she goes or whoever she's with...

5- To continue to grow as a person and hope to be a better friend to those I care about...

Mik, I want to see a picture of you.

and i admire your spirituality. your words truly encourage me, though I am confused with who I am.

Just so you know Maggs, my faith is a great source of strength but it does not prevent or stop life from happening. My faith gives me peace in difficulties. Not peace from difficulties. The biggest thing I have to learn to accept about faith is that I still struggle to accept that there are going to be things that happen that defy explanation. I don't have all the answers and I have to be okay with that.It's frustrating when something terrible happens and you don't have an answer as to why... But you know there's a reason for everything...

:) Exactly mik. It's so hard sometimes to explain faith to people because there is so much horrible things in the world. But then beliving in spite of everything is the essence of faith I guess :)

btw, you've been tagged :)
