Facebook doesn't allow much forgetting these days. Recently, facebook opened up the door to my past by way of a childhood friend. Her memories of us hanging out together reminded me of the unapologetic person that existed before I knew what was good for me. I miss that person. And to realize that God loved me then as He loves me now...incredible. I miss that girl who wasn't afraid to prank call the United Kingdom and ask for the queen. I miss that girl who didn't care much about what other people thought. We grow up and we make some necessary personal modifications but I miss being able to live each day to it's fullest. Jesus even said that worrying about tomorrow is pretty useless (it has enough worries of it's own!)and that we should trust in God. So maybe I should giving up worrying for lent. Is that possible? To trade in the worries for the confidence found in Christ...to trade in my own understanding for trust...to trade in my fears for faith in the Lord of all...perhaps this would revive that girl with tight rolled jeans and side bangs. Maybe that wouldn't be such a bad thing.
