Thoughts and conversations that I've had this week...
~Supposedly my ears and my nose will continue to grow until I die. Not that happy about the thought.
~When the woman who colors my hair warns me that the color will be 'richer' this time, it means that it's going to be darker enough that people will comment on my new hair color.
~When did the holes in my earlobes stretch????? Looks like I've been prepping for a plug look. Really? My earlobes are stretching out and going south? Really?
~I tried to medically advocate for my elderly mom this week in a very challenging environment - to the point that I started crying. I dislike my gift of tears. The whole experience made me sad. It's hard to see your parents decline and not be able to fix things for them.
~I missed our grandson's 3rd birthday party today because of our schedule - couldn't fit in 6 hours of driving today. He'll have a blast. I am sad at missing his moment.
One thing I love about serving Jesus is that He never changes. My body and my world is changing. But the Word says, - "Jesus Christ the same - yesterday, today and forever." He doesn't get weary. He doesn't get disappointed. He doesn't have less than mature moments or emotions effected by hormones. He is Faithful. He has a new portion of mercy for us every single day.
This blog is a personal response to what I think is a challenge from the enemy to not be transparent. I want to be real in my walk with Jesus and my walk with those who are with me on the journey. But being 'real' has brought with it some pain. My choice is to shut down and cover up so people won't shoot bullets of opinion my way, or...be real and hand Him - and you - who I really am. This blog entry is an act of obedience to do just that.
God bless your day as you delight in who you really are - and know that God made you that way you are because we need you!
