yesterday i was at a store and saw something that took me back to my childhood - those candies shaped like orange slices that are like gumdrop jelly covered with sugar. on an impulse i bought a package. i rarely do anything like that - just see something i want and buy it. i'm more likely to tell myself that i don't need it or not to waste the money or it is silly - or somehow talk myself out of it. this time i just did it. and as i was enjoying them i realized i was doing it for my inner child - and he was smiling. it didn't cost much and - darn it - i'm worth it!
so - let me encourage you - what could you do for your inner child today? try to make him happy for a change.
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
