…Try, Try Again!

If at first you don’t succeed… try, try again!

It’s the same for things you don’t like! I sometime get way to set in my ways, but I’ve been helped to realize many times recently that I shouldn’t be so hung up!

Three examples.
  1. Vinegar. Once I realized that the taste made me feel sick, I just avoided all dressings, sauces and anything that might possibly have vinegar. Recently I had a great salad with Thai dressing, it had a lot of vinegar in it but after trying it, I loved it. I decided to try things with vinegar in from then on.
  2. Coffee. This week I tried coffee twice.  The first time was very strong black Italian coffee, I didn’t hate it as I usually do, but it was way too strong and bitter for me. And tonight I tried vanilla caffè latte (I think). And I loved it! Even my mum and sister were surprised after I posted on Facebook and Twitter about it.

  3. Church. My whole life I was prejudiced against it.
    Thinking it was boring and quiet and only strange people who shout at you in the street go there. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I found Jesus Lifehouse so surprisingly active, loud and full of bright people who actually listened to what I had to say. I was so overwhelmed that I’d decided never to go back. Eventually I did, my prejudice was overcome, and now I love going!

So what are you being too stubborn to try again?
Relationships?
Church?
Coffee?

I Love my Friends

I have a lot of friends. Yay!

I’ve got friends at work, at church, in England and also just from randomly meeting people in Japan.  I had no idea that I could meet and keep in contact with so many people.

I think I used to have a problem with trust. Because I found it hard to truly trust people it was hard to let them close.

When I started at Jesus Lifehouse everything changed. My world exploded. I suddenly knew more people than I knew how to keep track of (thank God for Facebook).

It took me a while to figure out what to do with them. The answer; Love them. And with love comes trust.

lf there’s anything that l know, it’s that love is infinite.

You can always make more when you need it.

 And just because you wanna give some to somebody else, doesn’t mean that you’ll take any away from me.

Twitches movie

It’s so simple. I’ll keep in contact with as many as I can and as often as I can, but the main thing is to think of them, to love them, and to hope for good things for them. (In my case I pray for them)

If I hadn’t opened up my heart and started trusting people again, I might still be able to count my friends only with my fingers (possibly my toes too)

Now I need a computer because I think the number of friends I have is possibly only calculable via algebra.

Are you making new friends? What’s stopping you?
