Week 8: "I Confess"
I'm so vain, I probably think this blog is about me.
I'm also vain when it comes to my home surroundings. I haven't had company over for months, because my apartment never looks good enough for people to see it. Now, I could play this off as wanting to be a good hostess and have a nice environment for people to come into (and that does come into play), but let's face it--I mostly can't stand for anyone to think that this is how I really live. God forbid that anyone should think that my place isn't ready for a Martha Stewart Living photo shoot.
Anyway, I could go on and on (see? vain, I tell you!), but you get the picture. MY appearance, MY apartment, MY job, MY finances, MY WAY! One of my teachers in a Bible school that I attended defined "sin" as: my insistence upon my right to my own way. I see that. I'm working on it, little by little, sometimes by lowering my standards and expectations of myself, but mostly by trying to become more other-focussed, more aware of other people's issues that maybe I can minister to. I think that, as I do that, MY issues will loom less in the foreground and become less important. Let's hope so.
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
