"Maybe I can silence it for a few more minutes", I think to myself. Just as I begin to fall back to sleep... BUZZZZZZ!!! "Thought I silenced that!" Rolling over to buy just another minute or two....BUZZZZZZZ!!! "OK! OK! I'm up!"
I slowly make my way to my loving, sweet, darling children who are all so silently sleeping in their beds. "Rise and Shine! Time to get up!" Turning the lights on in each room, watching them shield their eyes from the glare. "I don't wana get up!", one cries from her slumber. "AAHHHH!", is another sound heard quite frequently in the breaking of a new day. Yet, in the midst of all this grumbling and moaning; in the distance I see a smile! There is hope! One of these amazing creatures has developed a sense of happiness! It's a miracle! She rises from her sleep - turns to face my still slowly moving body - and in the blink of an eye; A SMILE APPEARS! No sound. Not a word. Just a smile. It is there without fail. Every morning. It is the water that puts out that ugly morning flame! Almost makes it worth rising so dog gone early!
It is amazing how just a smile can melt away the hottest temper; it can calm the most eager of nerves; it has a way of brightening up any dark day. A smile is so powerful and it needs to be seen! A smiel confirms that whatever you are doing at that time is working. A smile lets you know that you are appreciated. A smile can make you wonder too. A smile can make anyone feel better about themselves. It can defuse the ugliness that is anger. A smile has a way of making everything ok. It says, "I'm here for you and I care", without saying a word. A smile is VERY powerful!!
Pass it along!
It is spreads like wildfire!
Show others that what is in you is greater than what is in the world!!

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!!
