Mulan did it, Shakespeare is famous for it, and Eve totally started it.
It’s that little game history likes to call deception.
Recently while I was getting dressed, painting my face, and showering in Guerlain’s signature scent, it dawned on me —- I’m kind of a master at this universal trickery.
I’m always so concerned with what is seen, rather than being seen. I’ve never really dared to be truly bare all the accessories.
Maybe it’s an age thing, and I’m just getting ahead of myself. My self in the sense that it hasn’t reached itself yet.
Though somehow, I don’t think there’s a wall I have to hit or a milestone I have to make. What is a good day to legitimately be naked; bask in the bareness that is in fact, me?!
Not today, but surely soon! It’s already happening. I just wanted to put it in writing for the months leading up to my big reveal.
I’m growing up. Wow.
Apples or Oranges?
Paris or Rome?
Death or Eternity?
Life is full of options.
You can laugh, cry, step on cracks, try this, quit that, and eat saturated fats; nonetheless it’s a choice.
My walk with God has certainly not been in a park. I found that I have (and still do) struggle with God more than welcome Him.
I believe it can all be pegged down to social exchange theory: weighing the benefits and the costs in terms of social behavior in relationships.
In a few words or less, I think the most plausible human response is…..
“So what’s in it for me?”
Oh great, another wall. A question I can’t thoroughly answer, or define with whole understanding. In fact, I’m still seeking the answer myself!
WHAT: Would you rather?
Choosing otherwise seems easier. Living and doing without this thing called God. How much greener is the grass on the other side, I would like to see!
I’ve made a choice. A choice to value something purer than the world, a choice to cherish and believe in what I cannot see, and a choice to center my life around the unknown.
But, I choose Him.
I have no idea how to explain God.
I’ll use the sky as my descriptive analogy, and concure that it is:
God and the sky are immeasurable.
Best friends of the infinite; neighbour’s of the cosmic. The ‘go big or go home’ types if you want to be human about it.
God shouldn’t be fathomable, should he? Isn’t there something holistic about the inconceivable? Everything viably human, can be measured within reason or limits, and cracked down to a nutshell.
According to Wikipedia, the light that streams through the clouds giving off that ethereal godly effect is scientifically referred to as, Crepuscular Rays. A cloud formation that happens at the peak of dusk. This scene is known as twilight.
So for those who seared your pupils gazing upon the eternal, you now know the truth!
Now. You’re not on your own; I’m going to participate too. How are you going to understand God. Even if it’s only for a moment, I dare you to be comfortable with the uncomfortable, and fathome the infinite.
Are you ready?
This is the end but, I swear the most epic of my ideas peak at the dawn of 2:26 am! But anyway, Let’s get on to the middle,
That’s What Eve Said is my punny way of documenting what I think, how I feel, and what I’m doing. You could call it a ‘lifestyle’ blog but, lifestyles are limiting and Jesus Christ isn’t!
I’ll acknowledge this as a portrait of my faith, my femininity, and whatever jubilant direction my logic may take me!
It’ll be personal, it’ll be raw, it’ll be thought provoking, and lucky for you, way punnier than my first joke!
