the exercise i posted about a couple of days ago

i posted a couple of days ago about the exercise i read from ys marko's blog... i did it this morning. here's how it went:

1. Write down the names of 5-10 people you love.
i had nine... E, six family members, and 2 friends.

2. Write a word or phrase about each person writing what it is you love about them.
that they listen to me was a common theme, also that they are kind and good listeners. a couple of surprising things came up here, too.

3. Write down the names of 5-10 people who love you...
i had 7... 4 family members, 2 friends and E.

4. Next to each name, write what it is that this person loves about you...
this is harder than you would think, but i came up with some stuff...

5. Finally, write down a list of things that God loves about you.
this was easier than i thought it would be... came up with lots of reasons...

the final part of the exercise was to pick something that surprised you about what God loves about you... i picked "because God is delighted by me." delighted? i delight God? i was surprised that came to mind, but i believe it's true.

i encourage you to try this exercise. it's a pretty private one, which is why my answers aren't really descriptive or clear. it's a good thing to try out sometime!

These types of activities have always been really difficult for me. I guess that's why they're useful. :)
