Day NINE: Details

The details really are pretty important. I mean that is if you care at all about what you are describing.

"How was the soccer game?" might get you two very different responses depending on who you ask...

"The team in the yellow jerseys won but I don't know by how much and there was something about a red card but I don't know what that was all about"...

Moving on to find someone who actually cares about soccer...

"It was incredible...the midfielder got taken OUT from the ball...and then he got hauled off the field in a stretcher...the sub came in and scored his first goal of the season in less than 30 seconds and the crowd went w-i-l-d. That tied up the game...they went into PK's and they won by 2 points." Now that's better...


"How was your first kiss?"

Girl..."The sun was setting and it was splashing the most amazing color of orange where the ocean meets the skyline. We were walking and then he turned to look into my eyes and kissed me. His hand was on the back of my head and I almost died it was so amazing. We held hands on the walk back."

Boy..." She made me go on a walk. We kissed. "


It’s all about the passion behind the words. You put more into what makes your heart pound. You want the person to feel your attention to you...remember what you said long after you are gone.

Once my neighbor asked me to keep her dog for a weekend while she was out of town...good grief the time I finished reading the instructions I was half asleep and brain dead.

All The Details...

When you love something or's a process you must stomach through. The more the better.

That's why I am captivated by this prayer from Jesus to His Father...God. If you ever questioned the importance or value Jesus put on your precious head, read the words He spoke about you to God as He was preparing to leave earth...sister you won’t find a sweeter love letter...a plea care for you. 

John Chapter 17...(emphasis mine)

“Now I am coming to you. I will not stay in the world, but these followers of mine are still in the world. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name—the name you gave me. Then they will be one, just as you and I are one.12 While I was with them, I kept them safe by the power of your name—the name you gave me. I protected them. And only one of them was lost—the one who was sure to be lost. This was to show the truth of what the Scriptures said would happen.13 “I am coming to you now. But I pray these things while I am still in the world. I say all this so that these followers can have the true happiness that I have. I want them to be completely happy.14 I have given them your teaching. And the world has hated them, because they don’t belong to the world, just as I don’t belong to the world.15 “I am not asking you to take them out of the world. But I am asking that you keep them safe from the Evil One.16 They don’t belong to the world, just as I don’t belong to the world.17 Make them ready for your service through your truth. Your teaching is truth.1I have sent them into the world, just as you sent me into the world.19 I am making myself completely ready to serve you. I do this for them, so that they also might be fully qualified for your service.20 I pray not only for these followers but also for those who will believe in me because of their teaching.21 Father, I pray that all who believe in me can be one. You are in me and I am in you. I pray that they can also be one in us. Then the world will believe that you sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me. I gave them this glory so that they can be one, just as you and I are one.23 I will be in them, and you will be in me. So they will be completely one. Then the world will know that you sent me and that you loved them just as you loved me.24 “Father, I want these people you have given me to be with me in every place I am. I want them to see my glory—the glory you gave me because you loved me before the world was made.25 Father, you are the one who always does what is right. The world does not know you, but I know you, and these followers of mine know that you sent me. 26 I showed them what you are like, and I will show them again. Then they will have the same love that you have for me, and I will live in them.”

I'm not going to get over that. Nope. I will never forget the way Jesus spoke to God on our behalf...He loves us. 

He didn't leave out any details.
