Not Me; Monday, or any other day. November 10, 2008
**Today’s blog will be totally opposite of all the other not mes I’ve posted. Today, when I say not me, I really mean it’s not me, and when I say it is me, it is.
I realized that in all my sharing of me “Just Speaz” I’ve failed to share with you the very core of who I am. Who I aspire to be, and who I hope you’ll want to be as well. It’s important for me to share this with you, because it’s the most important part of who I am. I guess my blog title is a little misleading, because it’s not just Speaz. If it were indeed Speaz, that’s all, I would have nothing to offer. So… If anything ever comes of this blog, or of my life at all, it’s not me.
You see, I’m human, my heart is desperately wicked. I would love to think that there is something about me all on my own that is of worth, but there is not. The truth is that what makes me of any worth of all is that I bear the image of the Everlasting God Almighty. He is what makes me worth something. He counts me worthy, He counts me as his daughter. And, my ultimate purpose in life is to bring glory to Him.
I want to make this very clear. I am worthy, and all people are worthy because we were all created in the image of a loving God. He desires to be with us. Even after humans separated themselves from Him, He still desired us, and sacrificed Himself to be with us. He loves us so much.
The following is copied directly from Dare2Share because I don’t know any way to share with you more clearly my relationship with God.
God created us to be with Him. (Genesis 1-2)
Our sin separated us from God (Genesis 3)
Sins cannot be removed by good deeds (Genesis 4)
Paying the price for our sin, Jesus died and rose again. (Matthew-Luke)
Everyone who trusts in Him alone has eternal life. (John-Jude)
Life that’s eternal means that we will be with Jesus forever. (Revelation 22:5)
Without Jesus we are all destined to spend eternity separated from God. But, with Jesus, we have the option of being with Him forever. The way we were created. But, it is totally a choice. No one is going to force people to have a relationship with God or to choose to believe that Jesus (who lived a perfect life with no sin) died to take away the sins of all other humans.
So, here’s what I really want to tell you: Who does my life belong to? Not Me
I’d love to hear what you think. If you’d like to dialogue in private please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org. I won’t pretend to have all the answers, but I’ll try hard to find them, or someone who does have them for you.
30 Day Eviction Notice November 6, 2008
I am issuing 30 day notice for EVICTION. Wee Bear will have 30 days in which baby can either gather its belongings and promptly vacate the premises, or wait until the final day. After which, baby will be physically removed from the property.
Wee Bear’s being evicted due to breech of contract and destruction of property. Expansions only to the FRONT of the house, within reasonable limits, were discussed. Not only have these limits been exceeded, but additions to the back of the house were also made!
Remodeling and gutting of the home was never approved, nor was changing the initial layout and base structure. And due to property damage, there are now leaks in both the upper AND lower levels of the home. On top of which, the landlord has received numerous complaints about nightly disturbances.
After 30 days from this day that Wee Bear doesn’t comply with the notice will result in immediate and forceful removal at my discretion.
Wherever You Go, There You Are… November 2, 2008
The kids took a nap and Granny and Hosteen’s this afternoon. Rob had to go in and wake Kaylynn up.
Kaylynn: “Good morning!” (Looking around as if she doesn’t know where she is)
Rob: “Where are you?”
Kaylynn: “I’m right here.”
Even The Wee Bear Had A Costume Last Night November 1, 2008
I’ll let Rob tell you about the actual night, I’m just going to post some pictures….
Wee Bear’s first costume a Jack O’ Lantern
Sharpay from High School Musical (she’s never seen the movie, but she loved the dress!)
Princess Aurora, or Rora, if you’re Kaylynn. It almost killed her to wait ALL WEEK to wear her costume!
Even Hosteen got in one of the pictures!
The finger! Rob will have to tell you all about it. I’m sure he will since Halloween is his favorite holiday.
Not the best night for pictures to be sure, but it was a long night.
