Say it

I feel special today...

The title is slightly sarcastic but only slightly. Two monumentous (monumental + momentous = monumentous, remember, Kiana?!) things happened today. You know that song "Everything Glorious" by David Crowder Band? Well, today, for the very first time I "got it".

You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
Yeah, You make everything glorious
And I am Yours
What does that make me?

I never understood that part. I was listening to random music on my computer while doing some chores and all the sudden I heard those words and I understood. That's where the sarcastic part of the title comes in. I am sure everybody but me already "got" that song a long time ago. But even though you probably know this already, here's what it means.
If God makes everything glorious, and I belong to Him, that means He is making me glorious! Yayness!

Thing 2 today was actually the very first thing that happened today. I had been out of bed for just moments and I was brushing my teeth, hoping that I would be able to go back to my room and chill for a few more minutes before facing the day. Then I heard knocking. Oh great, I thought. Now I have to hurry and get out and I don't want to hurry. "Hurry, K, hurry!" It was my mom. Usually she doesn't sound quite that excited about getting in the bathroom. So I hurried. When I opened the door, no one rushed in, pushed me out and slammed the door. Nope, a letter was shoved into my hands. You have to remember that I had only been up for a little while. People were telling me to open it, open it! Ok, ok. I did, and a check fell into my lap. Huh? "Pay One Hundred Dollars and 00 cents to the Order of K Grace". Then it occurred to me in the form of my mother's voice that I should read the letter. Right, the letter. Which told me that I had won third place in a national essay contest! I wrote the essay what seems like forever ago and I thought the contest was over and I had lost. NOPE! Yayness as Kiana would say, lol.  Now I just want to tell everybody! Not to brag but....I guess it's just the thought that I can write well enough to win 3rd place in a NATIONAL writing contest. And it's not sponsored by a little known corporation or something like that. This is a huge thing! Writing is my passion, and to know that I have the ability to succeed at what I love makes me believe I can reach for the stars and not come up empty. Thank you Jesus!
