3 Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— 4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.
1 Peter 3:3-4
Today was my last day of school. I think it had finally hit me what this might mean. I’ve always been a tad slow when it comes to everything. I’m sad :((
Despite not learning anything today, I learnt how blessed I’ve been to have been surrounded by all these people! I shall miss their laughs, oddities, tea-making times, biscuit crumbling munching, pen paper scavengers, milk thieves, revision buddies, baking for lessons… Too much to list! I’ve just realised how the majority that came to my head are to do with food… We were a Year who took pride in our food.
I just wish everyone a good luck in pursuing their dreams :) I just know there’s so much OUMPH in us.
After all this exam stress, I see that God has in fact been using this as a route to where He really wants me to be. It’s not the whole big picture, just a brushstroke. Maybe a big fat one though with lots of paint though.
But my, it’s gonna be glorious. :)
Really can relate this to today’s events.
I was in the library today when an old man came and sat opposite me. He really did smell very bad and strongly too. A mix of stagnant water and BO. I resulted in breathing with my mouth and in the end, I moved places.
The thing is, I made a bigger deal out of the situation than I should have. I didn’t have to tell anyone or laugh about it. Difficult as it is to respect someone like that, it wasn’t very nice.
The spiciness builds up in my throat! Quite experimental!!:)
