Day 65 – Friday Night Whites
I was alone at the corporate housing pool this morning imagining what a 3D animation version of myself would look like – sometimes I get a little caught up in my clients’ work and sometimes I am a bit (a lot) weird. I know that God built me and I wondered if He still had the architectural renderings He used to grow me into the being I am today. He probably didn’t need any of that stuff – I believe He gathered up some common dust and spoke to it. I love thinking about how God made everything so intricately and made everything so easily. This was my meditation for the day: How God knit me together – How He still knows everything about me – The part of Psalm 139 that stuck out to me was, “You know me completely.” I don’t think I even know me completely. I discover new good and bad things about myself every day. It’s nice to know that my Maker knows me totally but still loves me. There are days when I cannot stand myself but God doesn’t go there – He does all He can to care about me despite my madness – It is a comforting blessing that swamped my thoughts at the beginning of the day. He never gives up on me.
I worked on the commercial real estate group’s site some today – it is so different from working with the residential piece. From Lubbock homes for sale to commercial properties – I’m going to have to get up to speed on the wants and needs of this company over time, but I start with the basics and get some good results on this first day working for them. Their campaign is set up and in a week I’ll be able to see if they are popping like I want them to. I also checked in with my Lubbock landscaping site and found a few mistakes that needed to be corrected – they were minor problems but I tend to be a perfectionist when working with SEO.
Melissa took a personal day off of work where she still got paid but didn’t have to go in. She had earned that time and we made the best of it. We got back into our relationship questions and talked about this: How much will we share about our relationship with others? Will we tell our friends about the depths? Will we include our parents when we get into fights? And speaking of that, how will we handle fighting over different things? Will we yell and scream? Will we quickly forgive one another? Will we be aggressive and wage personal attacks or go passive aggressive? Melissa and I agreed that we would keep most things between us – We wouldn’t bring our families and friends into our intimacy and we certainly wouldn’t talk about our fights unless it was with a counselor. We also agreed that when we fought we wouldn’t get loud and we wouldn’t sulk. Quick forgiveness would be our M.O.
So that was Thursday – mostly. I bought some new underwear, but I didn’t think that was relevant. Still, you know now – fresh tighty-whities. With that I’ll leave you to your own lives. Always feel free to speak your mind in the comment section – especially if your life is more interesting than mine.
