A Glorious Mess


  I eat too many cookies.

 I'm scared of the telephone.

 I torture my cat.

 I'll think I want something, then change my mind.

 I don't like to brush my hair.

 I cry sometimes just because it feels right.

 I love it when plans get cancelled.

 Sometimes I stare at myself in the mirror and imagine how other people must see me.

 I love to be left alone with my books.

 I ramble on and on about things no one else really cares about.

 I change my Blogger picture way too often

 I kind of require a lot.

 I like eavesdropping on other people's conversations.

 I go back and forth from crazy-romantic-swooning-fangirl to morose-hermit-writer in a matter of minutes.

 I'm scared of what I don't know.

 I lose hope sometimes.

 In short, I'm a mess. But thanks to my Lord and Savior, I can be a glorious one. I'm going somewhere, and I'm not there yet. But I'm on my way, and even though it's a mess, I will embrace it.


  And so I'll be the best gloriously beautiful mess I can be. :-)

  1. Oh Emma, Emma, Emma - you aren't a mess. :-) And you aren't plain either... but still, I think your new blogger name is very cute (but I'll miss the 'Jane'. A lot.)

    Oh. mah. gosh. This is super relatable. I guess that means we're both awesome, beautiful messes. :-P

    I eat too many cookies too. Well, not TOO many, thanks to my good mum and Daniel. :-)
    I'm not scared of the telephone, as you know, and I don't mind brushing my hair (but I only do it like, twice a week... is that shocking?)
    Hahaha. I love it too, when plans get cancelled. Of course, it depends greatly on the plan. I HAVE been disappointed many times when really cool plans got cancelled.
    Oh yeeees! I stare in the mirror too and guess what people must think of me. And it's not beauty I'm thinking of (well maybe just a teensy bit) - it's more like, 'Would people think I was fun to hang out with' or 'do I look interesting.' I like to think people think I'm very pretty, for a not-make-up person. :-)
    *I* CARE about what you ramble about.
    OH YOU LIKE EAVESDROPPING TOO LETS EAVESDROP TOGETHER. :-P
    I always try to eavesdrop 'by accident.' Us children call it accidents-on-purpose. :-D

    Sweet Emma, don't loose hope! Spring is on the horizon now. I feel it in mah toes. :-)
    Keep calm and carry on, m'dear! Write happy scenes. :-) Those help.

    PS My comments nowadays get so heart-felt I think I should send them in emails instead. HAHA. :-)

  2. BEAUTIFUL post, Emma!!! Entirely lovely. :)

    (And I hope you don't mind my mentioning it -- but I was laughing about "I change my blogger picture way too often." I'd noticed that! ;D But don't worry. It's not too often....just fun! ;))

  3. Why, Emma, it sounds as if you're... human! :-) Good for you for embracing your identity while allowing yourself room to mature and improve.

  4. Naomi,

    Heehee. I love ya, girl. :-) I'm actually feeling a lot brighter now. And yes, spring has sprung! Or, it WILL soon. I feel it in mah bones. ;-P

    You only brush your hair twice a week. You're kidding, right? I don't really mind brushing my hair, but it was on the list of things I wrote down the other day because I didn't feel like doing it then.

    I had an awkward telephone experience yesterday. ;-P Maybe I'll mention it in an 'Awkward and Awesome' post soon.

    You care! Thank you for caring, my dear! :-) Heehee.

    I felt like I needed a new, more clever pen name. Have you ever read the Sarah, Plain and Tall books? (They're absolutely adorable.) Yes, I kind of miss the Jane too, but I like this new name a lot. :-)

    Heidi,
    Oh, why thank you! :-)

    Haha. It seems like my mood is always changing, and I keep finding new pictures to use. I try to leave them the same for a month, at least....;-P I'm glad you don't find it annoying!

    Hamlette,
    What do you know? ;-P Thanks. Well, I'm trying. :-)

  5. YES! Beautifully written!

    I do the mirror thing, too:-/ Whatever will we do with our silly little selves?

I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
