We awake, we go about our day; whatever that may be. For some of us it's grabbing a bagle and a cup of coffee and out the door to work. For some it may be sitting down with our spouse and enjoying a full breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, and OJ. Yet, for others it's sending our children off to school and beginning our day of cleaning, laundry, and grocery shopping. Each of us begin our days differently, and we can all agree we go through those days differently as well. The world seems to keep spinning no matter how any of us spend our time. At the end of the day, some go home to a home-cooked meal, family, and discussions of our day; others it's entering an empty home, quiet, and relaxing in that favorite chair for the evening.
My point is that no matter how we all spend our time, we all have the exact amount of time to spend. Everyone has 24 hours in a day-no more and no less. I, myself, try to cram more into a day to accomplish as much as I can. (Hence the fact that I have been up all evening and it is now 3:00 am) Have you ever really stopped to think of how you actually "spent" those 24 hours? I'm sure, once in a while, you probably had regrets of wasted time; or on the other end, memories of amazing moments.But I'm asking you if you have actually put thought into what consumes your moments?
Family is definitely very important, no doubt. We want to spend as much time as we can with them. There are so many special people in all our lives that we cherish, I pray you are able to have those moments.
But I ask you to think of this one thing..."Consumption takes a whole of something and fills it". So, may you be able to enjoy, cherish, love, laugh, and create memories in this life you live-BUT-Please BE CONSUMED WITH YOUR CREATOR! The One who allows you to have those moments in the first place!!

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!!
