it’s funny (not ha ha funny but ironic, comforting funny) cuz it’s too late (or rather, early) to actually sleep now… i would never wake up in time to leave for my dentist appointment today if i go to sleep now, so instead i decided to be somewhat productive (in my terms) and sort out the notes/letters/ encourageograms from camp and all the related things and put them together in one pile instead of separating them into various piles all over the place. more precisely, i decided to organize instead of sleep. so i was reading a few of the older (as in, two years ago..summer before college) ones and i doubt people will remember what they wrote, but they were just really uplifting and, to repeat myself, comforting. two years is a long time, and many things and changes have taken place since then, but those things are still nice to look back upon from time to time.
anyways, i finally decided to return to http://www.crosswalk.com/devotionals/encouragement/ after a long hiatus (the last time i looked at the site was the friday before recweek…) because someone reminded me to “keep doing your devos”, which then made me feel bad since i haven’t… which then made me feel bad about being lazy and all after such a great “high” although i’ve been repeating that i don’t want it to just be a “high” and now it’s almost time to leave and whatnot, but i digress (majorly)…
today’s encouragement devotional was about how God loves us soooo much, through everything, unconditionally. and how we are called “beloved” be Him. i guess it’s a simple idea, one that everyone should know…. and it’s something i do know quite well… how God loves us in spite of our stupid and inane mess-ups.
and there’s no eloquent way for me to tie in the two situations, it’s just really.. nice to read about how much God loves us right after reading the notes from people sent from God, emphasizing just that =)

on a tangent… i feel like i have self-induced jetlag for no reason… or perhaps self-induced insomnia now? if it holds out until asia, perhaps it will be worth it… but if i revert back to “normal” sleeping times, then this will be utterly useless…and kinda unhealthy…

ok back to organizing…
