meaning behind the name.

Well,

I debated on what topic I should start with because there are just so many things.  But, I decided, I better walk into this thing slowly.  So, I suppose I’ll tell you why I chose the domain gonnabeworthit.

It comes from the Rita Springer song, Worth it all. (It’s quite wonderful).  The first few times I heard the song, I really didn’t care for it. But, with new seasons, the song has taken on a new meaning for me.  I’m one of those people who has a song for every season. It’s strange..I know.  Anyway, this song has been a pick me-up for the last few weeks.  I went through a few weeks of beatings not literally of course, but I’m happy to say, that for now, I’m unharmed and feeling wonderful!

Lately, the story of my life has been “waiting.”  For everything, it seems.

I changed majors, and I’m stuck in four classes that I don’t need. I’m having to wait to get to the meat of what I need.

*Side note: I’m actually ready to be done with school. (And yes, I know I’m going to miss it. But right now, it’s just a pain in my side, so I’m over that whole spiel.)

I’m ready to see the world. But, I’m living on a college student budget that permits zero traveling. So, I’m waiting.

I want a dog. For real. I mean, it’s not like I already have his it’s name picked out..But again, college student budget. So, I’m waiting.

I want to move to the next step with CMB, but we haven’t gotten a thumbs up from the Big Guy yet. Again, waiting.

I’m ready to have my chance to make a difference. This is where I get pushy..I’m a pretty big fan of social justice.

BUT,

I have realized that although it seems hard at times to be in the still seasons, ten times out of ten, there’s a good reason for them.

Rita Springer put it beautifully:

I don’t understand Your ways
Oh but I will give You my song
Give You all of my praise
You hold on to all my pain
With it You are pulling me closer
And pulling me into Your ways

So, enough with my pity party.

Truthfully, I’m happy even in the stillness.  I have been blessed with an incredible life.  I’m content with where I’m at and where I’m going because I know who my trust is in.

And, I’m positive that wherever I end up, all of this is training and preparation for something that’s gonna be worth it.

*Sorry for the extremely cheesy video.

It’s a new-ew day!

For most of you, reading this title, you’re thinking, “new-ew day? She’s a debbie downer..” BUT, cheer up, for that phrase simply comes from one of my favorite songs, Sunshine, which is written by the most fabulously hot man in the world, written by this guy myspace.com/jonmorrismusic.  He is simply delightful, and his music is just a taste of his awesome heart for God.  You’re now thinking, “stalkkkkker.”  No need to worry.  I can rant on about this guy because he’s the love of my life!  [ We’re also dating 😉 ].  Moving on. After all, this is not a blog about Jon Morris, whom we’ll nick name, CMB (short for Charlie Muffin Bear…his beloved nickname given to him by yours truly). This is a blog, full of commas and run-on sentences, about little old me!

I suppose an introduction is due…

Well, to start, I am a Jesus lover, and a person who 100% believes that showing God’s love is the way to go.  I guess this is the foundation for who I am because, as I’m sure you know, loving Jesus totally re-shapes who you are.  I am a typical college student, who skips goes to class as often as possible. I for real love kids, and I like to think they love me too.  I’m a daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and all that jazz.  And, if I’m being honest, my family friggin’ rocks.  I’m a big fan of music..all kinds, but mostly folkish stuff.  I’m always on the hunt for life changing bands/artists, and so far, no one compares to this guy www.myspace.com/AaronEspe. His music is seriously amazing, and I’m almost positive that I’m his number one fan..in a non-creepy, non-stalkerish way of course. I love movies, although CMB will totally accuse me of lying about it. (He’s one of those watch a movie anywhere anytime guys). I wish I read more books, and I seem to be somewhat of a book-abandoner.  I have huge love for Uganda and the Acholi people. (Not familiar? Don’t worry, you’re going to hear plenty about them). I have no real discovered talents, other than an ear for hearing music in loud restaurants and then demanding that CMB name that tune, and telling people which animal or celebrity they look like, but I’m pretty sure those are useless. I’m a pretty average person I suppose.  I’m not even sure why I have such a fascination with blogging because I actually consider myself to be a below mediocre writer.  I guess it’s a good thing that no one is forced to read this, eh?

In sum, I’m pretty sure that this blog is going to filled with my dumb and random rants about the world and all of the things that I love/dislike, and I’m excited see where this journey leads.

So, if you can put up with my bad grammar, and scattered thoughts, welcome! (And if not, well, I didn’t want you to read anyway!)

Madlove.
