{I ask. He always answers.}


I have been in the tub reflecting. . .


I have been talking to God about this and that. . .
Got out and slathered on some of Lily's Justice Cotton Candy Lip Gloss. . .still thinking. . .started pecking into the oblivion. . .with a constant "news feed" of things on my mind. . .
and in my heart. . .
Being Salt & Light. . .

Memorizing Jeremiah 29:13
"When you come look for me, you will find me.". . .
My sister teaching a little girl to tie her shoes at school. . .a very poor girl. . . with very dirty clothes. . .
The girl I know that is watching me. . .
The lady I write letters to . . . while she is in prison. . . whom just lost her dad. . . and couldn't go to his funeral. . .
Things I do right. . .
Things I do wrong. . .
Things I do way wrong. . .
The Mary & Martha Story. . .Mary's less became more. . . Martha's more became less. . .
The dear friend of mine. . . whom chose to remain silent. . . walk into Lane Bryant. . . and buy me a gift. . . no hidden agenda. . . .just love. . . for me. A once in a lifetime friend. . . .
Jesus passing through Jericho. . . leaving the crowds. . . spending time with 1 (Zacchaeus), and changing his life. . . forever. . .
Me. . . losing a friend. . .for making some bold statements concerning my thoughts, faith, and convictions. . .
Me. . . making mends with a friend. . . using Jesus' eyes and skin . . .
Today.Lord.You.Reminded.Me.
Gently.
Gently.Whispered.In.My.Ear.
That.
I.
Am.
Okay.
And.
That.If.I.Love.As.You.Command.
I.Have.Done.
The.
Right.
Thing.
Love.
John 15:12 & 13
This is my command: Love one another the way I have loved you.
You promised. And you have kept it. I am not equipped, but you have given me all I need. . .
Every.
Step.
of.
the.
Way.
I am seeking. . . . I have found.
I love this man. . . his name is Jesus.

I think you do a a lot right. You are a deep thinker aren't you? Just wanted to encourage you!! You are making a difference in this world so keep going. Don't think about it to much just let God lead you. He is proud (:

Yeah. . . I pretty much think about everything I do. . . and at the end of the day I retrace my steps. I am sure you do too. Thanks for the encouragement!

I love that post. How you think out loud - applying the Lord's message of love in real life... in yourself. Tell me more some time about your thoughts on Mary/Martha - more becoming less, less becoming more. Interesting.
