Maturity and Complicated

Why is it I want to title every single new post Random? 🙂


I still go out with Dietch and have huge complicated imaginary battles/adventures/rescues/sabotages/everything in between. Is this a sign of immaturity?  Should I be moving on to something more “grown up” for my outdoor recreation? Should I let Dietch have adventures by himself while I go on a walk? Or is it good for me to playact?

There was a point when I didn’t do go play with Dietch for a while and I found that it was hard to go back and come up with something to do. I was afraid I had lost some of my imagination and grown up a little too much. So after that I played with Dietch often.

However, also during that time I was drawing a lot and perhaps my imagination was being expressed more “maturely.” But now I am doing both a lot of drawing and playing with Dietch. I don’t know what that means, but yennyway.


Recently I have been thinking about what I am really doing with my life right now when I am 14 and 11 months old. I know I’m preparing myself for the life ahead and all that rot, but does that mean that I can or should just sit and eat, sleep, and go to school? I want to do something here in Reno County (or anywhere) to help someone or I don’t know just do something. I really don’t care much what it is, just something that will do a little bit to help someone and show them God’s love.

The big question is what? I can’t drive myself to town to help at the soup kitchen (or anywhere else for that matter). I’m not exactly a talented seamstress or anything like that. I can’t really even make money to give away.

But then I think, well, maybe I am just being discontent and I should just focus on getting better scores, becoming an accomplished pianist, and reading books to help me in the future. But then, just tonight I was reading a book about God’s will for us and it said to just do something. Stop waiting around and putting it off. The book was probably aimed at an older person, but why shouldn’t it apply to me too?

Anyway, I guess for now I’m just gonna have to do whatever I can to help me in the future.

  1. I like the thoughts! Freely, randomly, expressively.

    The future is now – the people around you are people who need to experience God’s love. (My own free thoughts there) Best wishes!

  2. Kris, now is the time to be putting down roots! Hangin’ with Dietch is an awesome way to do that… as well as loving the rest of your dear family.
    I wish sometimes I wouldn’t be leaving in just a few months… I keep savoring every minute that I get to be mentored by my mom… pray with my prayer group… enjoy the wonderful people in church (esp. S. S.). 🙂
    If you don’t have strong roots, your wings are going to be pretty weak. Put ’em down before you fly away!
    I used to think that all the hurting people were “out there” far away, and then I discovered that there’s needy people right next to me. Living as a follower of Jesus isn’t so much about going where the needs are as it is asking Jesus to open your eyes to what he wants you to do!
    Bless you!
