Last night, Ricky & I were watching the Bachelor.
Stop... yes, I said that right.
& No, it wasn't by choice for Ricky. I usually go in the other room & watch it because I know he wants nothing to do with this. But I've started a new 'cleaning schedule' of one room a night & Monday is the bedroom.
So I had the TV on, had the room clean & the Bachelor came on so I just decided to stay in there.
I mean, who wants to leave a clean room when the others are dirty? Come on... only makes sense...
The Hubs is such a good sport. He just gave me a look & said, "WHHHHHYYYYYY do you watch this stuff?" ... to which my response was, "I love crazy"
I will say, Ricky made me laugh throughout the night watching it with him. His comments were great. I need to force him to watch it every week & just do a recap post of nothing but his comments...
they'd go something like this:
"Does this guy like all of them? Because he says the same thing after every girl"
"Is that the girl that was just at the house? Is that the same girl he just took out? Is that the girl that was crazy? - if a girl has dark hair, he thinks its all the same girl
(When Ashlee said she loved Sean) "WHAT? Don't EVER say you love someone that soon!!!' - Dr. Phil would be so proud of my husband.
"That's just stupid"
"He's just stupid"
"She's just stupid"
... you get the picture....
But I was talking about how I just love Ashlee
There's something about her that I just think is beautiful - inside & out
(If she doesn't win, I'm going to hate Sean)
I told Ricky, I think I look at people like that & am in awe of them. Ricky was like "people like what?"
People that are so soft spoken & seem to just stay calm in all situations.
Me? I don't know the meaning of 'soft spoken' or 'calm'
I don't even know if I COULD be soft spoken
& I don't think I could react any differently then overly-dramatic ... (I'm flailing my arms at even typing that... & flailing my arms WHILE typing is an art people... a straight up art)
Ricky was so sweet & said, "its who you are"... & I guess he fell in love with that person
(which is so funny because 'soft spoken' is too loud for who Ricky is... opposites attract - right?)
But I have to remember that God uses people for who they are
God created us all to be different
God needs all sorts of people
Loud & soft spoken
Each for a different reason & cause
After all, I'm the one who can scream at the Jr. High kids when they're getting too rowdy - ministry in action! BAM! :)
Its a good reminder to see in the Bible all the 'loud' people who had no problem speaking out & being the ones who drew attention.
& its also nice to see the ones who delivered powerful messages with subtle tones & actions....
So whoever you are ... wherever you are... know you are specially created in your own unique way & God is going to use exactly like for a reason.
It was a good reminder for me last night to know this....
& to be thankful that I've never had to be on the Bachelor
After all, its usually the LOUD ones that are kicked off first ;)
