What's Going On Here?

There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.

Fears and Loves

I just finished Heartbeat and in it, Annie, as part of a school assignment, makes a list of things that she fears and things she loves.  She includes some very scary things:  war, people shooting people, and dying, among other things.  She loves things like running and laughing.
I was trying to think about the things that I fear.  It being Halloween and all....this picture over there is titled "Fear of a Blank Planet" by the way.
Things I fear would be:

  • Someone I love dying before I do (I don't worry about dying myself, I know where I'm going, and I know where the people I love are going as well, I just don't want to be without them!
  • Becoming insensitive to people's feelings.  I really don't want to be a jerk to people.  I worry that I put my needs before the needs of others.  I fear that.
  • Not being able to pay my bills.
  • This one probably is the cause for having any fears at all and it is my worst one:  Putting other things before God.  I really fear that I do that, I know I do.  And it scares me, but I am trying.
