Yes you read the title right, I have been so bored lately I have taken to babysitting a balloon. This was my own idea. I found a green balloon sitting on the TV stand the other day, while trying to fix the cable box. I have played with this balloon for 3 days now and enjoyed the balloon immensely. I named the balloon Rufus. Rufus is a very bland sort of person he doesn't do much, and stays very cold. Even when you hold him for long periods of time!!! Rufus is shaped like a yam, which I think is quite hilarious, a green yam!!! Anyway, Rufus makes a great companion when reading a book or watching TV. Becuase by holding Rufus, I can keep myself from chewing my nails. When your watching or reading something suspenseful, that is very diffucult. Rufus helps a ton, I love my little Rufus. I feel very strange being 12 years old and writing about how I adopted a water balloon and named him. Rufus sleeps in the bathroom on a washcloth, because if he is on the counter he won't roll off, and if he sadly breaks then he won't make a mess! So Rufus is my new best bud, and I enjoy this silly little thing in my life.
Rufus though reminds me of how God takes care of us. Just like I take care of Rufus, God takes care of me. Although I am a person with feelings, thoughts, and needs. Rufus is a water balloon, he cannot think, talk, or even move. So though a poor analogy I think that it is important to see God in all things. I realize that Rufus is a balloon, I am a person, and God is God, we all have different was that we work and make things better. Rufus gives me enjoyment, I can share that enjoyment with others by filling other balloons and handing them out, and God can show me that this enjoyment came from Him, that He is the one who created balloons and water!
So there you go, a nice little post that is about Rufus my new friend. I throughly enjoy Rufus, because when I ask him questions he never gives me stupid advice!!! Oh and he is pretty low mataince! I hope you too can find some little thing in life to adopt and let bring you happiness!
