About Me

My Photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

be our guest

My high school was considered the "rich" school.  The "snob" school.  I had no idea.


You see, my parents weren't rich and I was not a snob.  


On several occasions I met kids from other schools and they told me that my school had quite a reputation.  The students they had met were unfriendly, to say the least.


I went out of my way to remedy this situation.  I was going to change the school's reputation- single-handedly!


Of course this was impossible, but I still wanted people to see that one bad (or several) apple didn't mean that the whole barrel was rotten.


Consider this, as you start your week.  *If you are a Christian- what if you are the only Christian that the people at work, in your neighborhood, at school, etc. come in contact with?*


Are you representing God in the best way? 


I know that I fail sometimes.


Being a citizen of heaven is a privilege.  Be aware that people are always watching.


I have some dear friends that have been deeply hurt by Christians.  The damage is difficult to undo.


It's not our job to candy coat the truth and the truth can be extremely hard to hear sometimes.  Of course, "playing Christian" on Sundays is not cool, either.  Being a hypocrite is a huge turn-off and I believe that's why a lot of people sign off from church.


These are words to guide us...  Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.  Phillippians 1:27 


None of us are perfect and Christians will be judged by others.  


Represent the Lord to the best of your ability.  Don't let God get a "bad reputation".  Let His light shine!
