i think there is more to life than being dramatic about our x-boyfriend on our facebook status.
i think we were made for more than tweeting our current activities and location every time we go somewhere.
i think we were created for more than hating the girls that date our old boyfriends.
i think there's more to life than getting mad at the mcdonalds cashier for forgetting we wanted "no pickles".
i think we should be able to talk about how we feel and what we're doing without being propmpted by "Maryanne Rieder is.."
i think there's more to Christmas than blowing our savings accounts on our friends and family just so they'll know we love them.
i think there is more to life than being right all the time.
i think we should be living for more than a text message every hour to reaffirm our value and worth in this world.
i think that we should have more to talk about besides how stupid, annoying, ugly, and weird the people we don't like are.
i think there is more to people than we can see, and there is more to God than we could ever imagine.
so i think that we should talk to people, with real words. not emails and text messages and wall posts.
and when people talk to us, we should look and them and listen to them and not be checking our emails and text messages and wall posts.
i think we should feel things, really feel them, and not be scared of what will happen if we experience and show emotion every once in a while.
i think we should give our time and energy instead of gap sweaters and new cell phones and gift cards.
i think we should care about other people more than ourselves and the drama we've created in our lives.
i think we should love.
i think we should love deeply and selflessly and i think this love should extend to everyone we meet, not just our friends.
i think we should feel loved, by the Creator of the universe, and that should be enough to make life worth living.
"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." -John 10:10
(ps. i bet you think that i should be telling people what God is doing in my life instead of posting it on my blog.
i am. don't worry.)
