you can't always get what you want part deux

yesterday was basically a rough one for me, and those of you who know me well know that i don't use those words lightly. i normally consider every day a *good* day. (ok....*most* days!) i really wanted to blog and rant and rave about the selfishness, pettiness, jealousy and self-serving attitude of someone. i never got around to it, tho, because, well, i was just emotionally drained last night and didn't feel like taking the time to write something that wasn't angry and venom filled!

then..this morning i wake up and get ready for church, and get a text message from a friend:

"god told me to tell you that i love you!"

wow. i needed to hear those words so badly.

and then in church i hear a beautiful solo, "his eye is on the sparrow."

I sing because I’m happy,

I sing because I’m free,

For His eye is on the sparrow,

and I know He watches me.

again. wow.

you can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.

thanks LORD! (and lisa and randy!)
