I am on a field trip today(Thursday) and so I thought I would repost my post from a year ago to the day. Ya'll know you are just dying to get to know me betterI was thinking about Beth Moore's story in a Bible study about her dog Beanie. Every time Beanie would do something bad, she would hold up her paw (that had been hurt and had surgery), as if to say, " This is why I act the way I do." Beth's point was that often we do things (or we know people who do things) out of our hurts and pains, as if to say, "This is why I act the way I do." So we think we are JUSTIFIED in our actions.
and here is your chance.
The first paragraph is a story being retold by Holly of Crown Laid Down-then the rest is me. She gives the intro to my post.
See ya when I get back-I'll bring pictures. Yes, I know-please
try and contain your excitement.
So I thought of a fun way to play this game, TIWIATWID. I'll keep it light and fun! 'Heaven knows we can think of a host of heavy and serious ones.
1. When I was young our Dad was very much into the health scene. Well, maybe I should just say, He was big time into vitamins and minerals . For years I thought I hated orange juice. When I got a little older I found out that it was not the orange juice I hated but the liquid iron he placed in it. I am still not real fond of orange juice.
2.When I was 5 my parents started teaching at a Christian Businessmens Conference on top of Lookout Mountain in TN. Anybody know Covenant College? That's the place. Every summer I looked forward to leaving our home in New Orleans to head for the mountains. We would start up that mountain in our blue and white van with the thick cobalt blue shag carpet and I would get butterflies in my stomach from the excitement surrounding the fun I knew we would have that week. I still get butterflies to this day each time we head for the mountains.
3.As a little girl just before it was bed time Mom would get my older brother and I and have us get on either side of her as she read some of the great classics. That is why to this day I love to read.
4. A little girl of about 5 or six followed her Mom to an old house where they sat as a group of women to learn about God. She watched as her Mom spoke with outward confidence of the inner confidence she had in her God. She loved to teach. That is why that little girls now grown -gains great pleasure doing the same. That little girl is me!
5. My father had a ministry in the French Quater when I was growing up. I remember hearing valiant stories of people snatchd from the power of Satan by the power of God. Everybody deserves to serve God freely--that is why I fight as a soldier in the army of God today.
Now don't you feel like you know me so much better? :)
