I visited one of my favorite places this weekend, a camp up north here in michigan.
Being there literally put a smile on my face.
The person I was there with and the people I saw while I was there made my smile even bigger :)
It was so nice to just be in nature, where it was quiet. Completely quiet.
It was peaceful.
I love Camp Au Sable.
The highlight of the weekend, of course, was being with a special someone.
Today has already been wonderful.
Tomorrow will be even better!
Grand Rapids, my new favorite little city :)
lets aim for better.
But when it comes time again,
I don’t care what they look like.
How tall they are (well… lol).
What race they are.
black, white, asian, indian, native american.
I just want them to love Jesus and genuinely strive/follow Him daily.
Who loves me, only 2nd to God and his family (but eventually will love me on the same level as family).
Who will uplift me.
Who will treat me the way I deserve.
Someone I can laugh with, sing with, be silly with, read the bible with.
I suppose to some extent we all judge people by their first impressions or what they look like. Even when we are trying not to.
I didn’t blatantly in my own head judge this person, but in one of my classes at the community college I’m attending (where everyone is stupid, and does stupid things) there is this boy who sits behind me. He seemed normal, cute, fun to talk to. I sort of assumed he did dumb things like party or smoke/drink. But I didn’t think too deeply into it. He was just a person.
He surprised me (in a good way) because of how polite he is. He has manners, he is sweet, he rarely uses swear words (if at all). He hates that his friends are involved with drinking/partying/smoking and he stays as far away from all of that as possible. He has a good head on his shoulders.
He is a very sweet kid and I wish I could know him better.
I like happy surprises like this, because usually when I assume things about people I’m right.
Unless I assume the best of them, then I’m wrong - ha.
