I can honestly say that no one has ever called me "normal"! That is just fine with me! God created me to stand out, be different, be weird, and not blend in with the world.

There are definately many personalities floating around in my mind. This makes for quite an interesting day with me! It is "Grand Central Station" up there! I have even 'named them'! (Don't send in the troops just yet)

The great thing about having such diversity is that there is never a dull moment with me! I always make sure that heading up this little party in my mind is the Lord God Himself!

God has shown me how to embrace the 'fun' inside me and use it to better His Kingdom! I have found that I don't have to be a 'stick in the mud' to be a Christian. I am a child of God! I am a Chrsitian! I am a follower of Christ! I AM HIS! Every day I am working toward becoming a better Disciple! I will NEVER be perfect - but I am SAVED; so that is all that matters!!

Capturing the Moment

We all like to take pictures with our cameras. We take them to almost every special event and we "click away".  Then we bring those pictures home to be developed, or downloaded, so that we may share them with others. We post pictures to our webistes, Facebook, or we email them to friends and family. Some of us still do it "the old-fashioned way" and actually place them into an albumn. Then we may set that albumn out for all those who stop by to view. The point is, we all like to keep those memories for years to come and we want to share them with others. These may be pictures of special events, family gatherings, fun times with friends, or simply a special moment. We want to treasure those moments and keep them forever.
I want to share with you pictures that I keep in my mind daily. They may not be downloaded on my website, placed in an albumn on my coffee table, or placed in my purse. They are, however, implanted in my heart and there they will stay forever.
Psalm 23:4-5 - My Father holding my hand
Revelations 7:15-17 - My eternal resting place
Matthew 27: 27-31 - My Savior being beaten
Matthew 27: 45, 46 - My Savior's loneliness
Luke 24: 1-8 - The Resurrection
These are images that I see as I awake. I remind myself daily that The King of Kings is always with me to help defend me from my enemies. I will never forget the trials and pain that my Savior went through by being beaten, mocked, and crucified by those He came to save. And, when all seems lost, I remember the victory Christ had over death and I know that no matter what - He has already WON!
