Real joy

Some thoughts

Yesterday was the first time I smiled a real smile in a long time, and it felt good to feel joy. I will have thoughts on the year in another post, but I am going to focus on Christ. I won't focus on others thoughts of me. I will be me.
Merry Christmas.

My wish

Every time I'm sour or wanting to be mean, God does something to remind me of His Goodness. That is a gift whose meaning never ceases to amaze me. We live in a world needing Him, and the only way some may see Him is through me. Faith teaches me not to seek perfection in myself or the world, the babe in swaddling cloths is Perfection.
God, the Righteous Judge.
Take my sin, wash me clean.
Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays
You came for the sinner and the saint.
If no one has told you, God loves you and so do I.
My Christmas wish is to 'not be conformed to the world'.

Do good

Thinking on this:  Never tire of doing good. Do good because you can.

An Airstream in the woods


Thankfulness is looking into the eyes of a child.
Thankfulness is understanding how blessed you are.
Thankfulness is understanding to say thank you and be grateful.
Thankfulness is looking up.

Thank you.

After yesterday's post, I have some thoughts. Thank you for loving me as I am, not how you'd like me to be. For those who wish to protect me from the vile in the world, I appreciate it. Sometimes, we must face our detractors. It teaches me and them as well. Thank you again.

Being real

I've been thinking. When did I care more about what others say and think of me than Jesus. When did I become what I detest. Jesus has me, and I see it daily. "I'm fearfully and wonderfully made". He knew I would have Cerebral Palsy. He knew all that I would need, and He provides it daily even when I doubt. I have other thoughts, but those I won't share because they're not kind. I'm having to forgive a lot these days, and selfishly I'm having to do it for me. I can't change what one thinks of me.

Would you rather

Eat oysters or clams
Drink Kombucha or orange juice
Scale Kiliminjaro or shop in Paris
Write or call
Visit Wales or live in Tahiti
