He needed to be number ONE in my life.
not two three four or anywhere that i was putting Him.
but first place.
a series of bad events happened.
i got in trouble for cheating on my practical that i stayed up all night for, even though i didnt cheat at all. i was threatened to be expelled from the university and the least they could do was give me a zero. they were doing me a favor.
so i cried.
and then i went home to see that jake's sister died.
that made me cry a lot more.
i only met her barely sort of the week before.
she smiled at me. that was it.
but she was a pretty girl.
and he loved her so much.
and the way they acted with one another embodies what love should be like.
that is how every family should act like.
but she is with Jesus, and He will take care of their family.
i just know it.
i tried to contact him and be a good friend, even though we havent been friends for long.
i went to the viewing, it was sad.
the next morning, today, this morning..
i went to her mass at St.John Vianney,
it was a really beautiful mass.
i just really hope they actually understood the momentum of God's presence there.
i hope that all those atheists and unbelievers were touched by God.
and touched by God through lauren.
thats what the priest was talking about.
God is present everywhere.
He finds a way flourish Graces and Blessings even out of tragedy.
especially out of tragedy.
it reminds us that we are small.
Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
His yoke is easy, His burden is light.
nothing phases me when I am in Christ, and Christ is in me.
this was a really religious post.
