CPR for the Soul

So I had a whole blog post written. But I couldn't get it quite right. Frustration.
So I just did away with the whole thing in one cruel blow. Ahhh the backspace key. You can wreak so much destruction with just one stroke.

So what was this post (now lost forevermore in the black hole of cyberspace) about exactly?

*Points to title*. CPR for the soul, my friends. Get some.
This whole weekend most definitely refreshed and renewed me in ways I didn't even know I needed.

Lemme break it down now for y'all:
  • I get coffee with a dear friend of the heart on a beautiful Saturday morning.
  • Venting ensues. (Nothing like a good venting sesh.)
  • But better yet, we had beautiful conversations about love, holiness, wholeness, brokenness, trust, vulnerability, love, and leaning solely on God. An unlooked for, much-needed, and much enjoyed gift of a conversation.
  • God is beyond awesome. He's awesometastically fantastic. Or something like that.
  • Squidward makes me happy. In general, I find grumpy people so utterly endearing. Don't know why, but I've never encountered a grumpy person who hasn't melted my heart into a pile of butter. From Oscar the Grouch to Mr. Darcy, those dour dears have all won me over with their adorably cranky charm.
  • I dropped a cup of water. It was the most epic fall of a cup of water to probably ever happen. And it happened in my very own kitchen, peeps. Just saying.
  • Peanut-butter-cookies-with-milk picnic=Happiness.
  • Had a beautiful discussion with soulmate-friend about finding beauty in all things, and searching for the good. Finding out what the good is, and then discovering how all the beautiful things in this world reflect the good in their own unique way.
  • Imagined what Mother Teresa would say regarding church architecture and baptismal fonts.
  • God is beyond awesometastically fantastic. He's superbly incredibly amazingly finna astounding. Something along those lines.
  • Coined several new words with the Noxious Marmoset. Two of the bestests being: pernicocity and dramaticality.
  • Beautiful Sunday Mass. The Gospel was one of my all-time favorite passages. "Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Mt. 28:20) Dear God: Thank you. Love, Renée
  • Pretty skies. Pretty sun. Pretty fountains. Pretty green grass. Pretty day.
  • Dissolved into laughter at the dinner table with the fam. Successful family dinner? I think YES.
  • All this to say: God is so good. He just keeps sending us blessings without number and mercies without end, don't cha know? We simply have to lift our hearts before Him and wait upon His word, and then we'll uncover all the untold beauties He's carved into each day for us.
  • God's beyond superbly incredibly amazingly finna astounding. God is Love.
