Sorting Out

My room has been messy for a long time. I've made several efforts to clean it but have yet to actually get to a state of cleanliness. Partly because it's freezing in there and I don't really want to be in there, but I think the main reason, which I realized today, is that a lot of stuff in there doesn't really have a place to go.

Kind of like the condition of my life right now.

Nevertheless, when you have friends like Anna, Austin, and Stephen, who talk with you for hours, hold you when you cry, and buy you a bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day, you know everything is going to turn out okay. Not that the rest of my friends aren't amazing as well-I'm just particularly appreciative of those three at the moment. At a time in my life where I felt like there wasn't as much love in my world anymore, they have poured a ton right back in.

For the 21st time in my life, I will be single on Valentine's Day. And I'm okay with that. I have a feeling this one will be pretty special. Not because I expect any sort of romance to appear in my life-in fact, I'd rather it not at this point. I don't know, I just think God has something special for this day up His sleeve. Maybe it'll be a sunny day, maybe it'll be a really good time at church tomorrow, maybe it'll be a hug from the right person at just the right time. *Shrug* I don't know.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. And may you remember that God defines love, for He is love, He has given us the ultimate example of love through Christ, and it is He who gives us the capability to love.
