i guess that’s because it always makes me think of the psalm that reads ‘the king is enthralled with your beauty.’ to me, the sense of the word enthralled is something so majestic it can’t be described or defined by human words. it paints something so glorious i can only try to picture what this means.
en·thrall : to spellboud, to captivate
i suppose this also applies to words like ‘awesome’ and even ‘love’ (why, yes. i sure do love tacos!), which yes, i do find myself using these words at random.
“hey buddy. you’re so awesome for taking the garbage out.”
i guess i’ve never really been a big ‘i love you’ saying person to those i care about. yes i do use these words but not at the end of every conversation. i feel like that phrase gets thrown around and polluted by the farcest (is that even a correct usage?) of relationships. i feel like i’d rather show them love and give other words of encouragement.
(completely random sidenote: i just thought the person in the office next to me just answered the phone, “thank you for calling meatballs.” what? lies. she did not actually say that. my hearing is ridiculous!)
words are fun. i hope you were enthralled by my awesome post and i love you.
but really, think about that. God is spellbound by our beauty?? woah.
