Orange & Pink Footprints
I don't know if it was the evening breeze or the fact that I could feel His presence around me, but I shivered involuntarily on top of that hill.
I watched in awe as the sun slipped away, leaving traces of orange and pink footprints in the sky. I heard the soft rustling of leaves and noticed how each one moved to their own beat. I felt the warm tears roll down my cheeks a minisecond after I realised my emotions pounding on the door wanting to be released.
I thank Him for all the blessings He has given me. The many people He has lead me to. The places He's let me visit and stayed. The food I consume. The air I breathe. The love I give and receive. The many opportunities and challenges He has peppered along my path.
I ask Him to let me keep all of them, I ask Him to bestow blessings to all my loved ones. I beg of Him to never let my faith in Him waver. I will always want to thank Him and recieve His gifts.
I do feel guilty though, asking for more. I also feel guilty for giving up on my thesis. It seems like a betrayal to all those nights I prayed so hard to get into Honours. But I will turn this around. I will try my very best to put in as much as effort as I KNOW I can give. After all, I shouldn't shortchange myself. I know I can be more than mediocre if I wanted to. :)
