Too annointed to be disappointed

That's what a friend said yesterday.

"Cole, you're too annointed to be disappointed!"

Wasn't exactly applicable yesterday ("you're too blessed to be stressed!" was far more appropriate). But it's right on the money for today.

I want and I fear. My two most frustrating feelings. Trying to figure out how much of those to shut up, rationalize, and allow. Many thanks to a dear sister in Christ for helping me with that one.

Stupid feelings.

Last day of classes! Next is dead days, the most stressful weekend of the semester, and then finals week. So 2 papers and 3 exams to go. God help us all.


  1. "Anointed" is such a religious-y sounding word. We should make up our own code-language that sounds something closer to how they speak in Southern California. That way we can be edifying and relevant all at the same time. OR, instead, we can talk all Elizabethan-y, or with Puritanesque theological terminology. P.S. I'm a fan :)

  2. Yeah, you're right. "Anointed" is one of those words that almost makes your eyes glaze over. But ya can't diss the Puritanesque theological terminology. It struck fear and holiness in the lives of lots of really uptight folks once upon a time. So what's the Southern Cal term that you'd suggest?

  3. How about "righteous bro"? (what's the feminine equivalent of bro?) No, I'm kidding. I favor about a paragraph explaining something so deep, rather than a word that gets used to mean a lot of different things.
