Brought glory to worship this morning on the bass, hopefully. Then had a whole afternoon to spend in the sun, my eternal dream. Started off by reading The Picture of Dorian Gray in Weston Park. There is an interesting part where one of the characters, Lord Henry, talks about how, through art and literature, it’s possible to learn things that others need experience to discover. I spend loads of time listening to music and reading, so maybe this explains why I’m often frustrated when people’s thoughts and thought processes seem underdeveloped to me. Please be humble, I have to keep praying this.
I went to TK Maxx to buy some smart clothes. As I’ll be attending a few weddings over the summer, and hopefully job interviews as well, I need to at least pretend to be respectable. Appearance is everything, apart from if you’re King David. Also picked up two Fairy Tail box sets for only £14 altogether in HMV; yes please. Then Holyspirit wanted me to buy cookies. Why do all my spiritual encounters seem to be connected with Sainsbury’s? I asked why, and he said, “Lift your eyes.” This is what he says to people he knows in the bible when he wants them to trust. He wanted me to enjoy them with him, and put my spiritual strength before my physical. Sounds great in principal, but not looking forward to obesity if this continues.
Watched Pocahontas for the first time tonight; some of the animation was incredible. That first scene with her where she’s standing on the cliff over water, with the wind in her hair, sums up my ideal target for any glory moment.
