Another work week in the books. Another fine Friday afternoon sipping coffee at Starbucks at 7th and P’Tree. (and boy do I love coffee and a book, even if it is for school). Right in front of he window looking out, no less. Perfect people watchin’ spot. It’s raining; weather is kind of miserable, but, that’s ok. And while I love the winter because of the potential of snow (yes, I love snow, even if many in the country no longer do), I do love to be out in the spring sun. So I am looking forward to the warm up. I could stand another good snow here, maybe without all the freezing rain next time.
Life is a sacrifice. You can never have everything you want. You ways have to give up one thing to get another. I guess the only way around that is to convince yourself that the thing you are giving up is something you didn’t really want or need. We give up sleep for school. Money for things. One person for another. Abs for donuts. Always a trade off. Old man for new man. Sin for grace. Short term for long term. Long term for short term.
I make no value judgment over whatever you decide or decide not to sacrifice for. Just an observation. It’s just that I used to say that in life we sacrifice one thing to get another. But I am changing my mind. It’s not something we do in life, but it IS life. Our life is a sacrifice.
