Life is a great big canvas. Ahhhh......

Don't you like my profound title? I guess there is always so much going on that who knows what to start off with.

After I posted that last blog I saw more of Arrested Development. Um....then I tried to get back on and delete the last blog, but the page wouldn't open. I know it is hilarious in a crazy way, but when they started showing a christian family I got really nervous. I hate to see how the world sees Christians. The family was of course really judgemental, but then very neurotic at the same time. I am just about done with that show. Sorry if any of you took my blog to heart and checked the show out. Don't get me wrong...there were some very funny moments. I just got a bitter taste from the total cluelessness of the writers/producers. What makes me even sadder is that I guess that is the church that the world really does see.

I guess it just made me want to be more real. To live out my faith in a way that brings glory to my Father in heaven. I want to show others grace the way I need God's grace myself and I want to live in His spirit so much that I show others that with God all things are possible.

I have been listening to Focus on the Family a lot lately. This is my morning drive listening. There is a big meeting for prayer and fasting this Sat. in California. I almost can't believe where this country is going. I so many times feel helpless, but these people are crying out to God to do something. So much to pray about and so much to be thankful for.

Matthew's birthday is next Wed. He will be 17! Unbelievable. He wants a really nice guitar and I am excited to get it for him. He has really gotten into playing the guitar and has gotten really good. He plays for worship with his youth group. I just have to order it tomorrow.

Last weekend we sang in Neil and Elizabeth's wedding. Mom kept the kids and Matt and I drove to Atlanta. It was great. We got to see my two brothers, my sister-in-law and my niece that I haven't seen since her high school graduation almost 4 years ago.

Anyway....I am going to have to post more often so I won't write a book each time. Hope you have a happy Friday. Friday, glorious Friday.

Discovered your blog this evening and very much enjoyed your post. Yes, the world does not have a very good opinion of what we as Christians are suppose to be. Unfortunately, we have only ourselves to blame for that. Too often we are just complacent and hide in our own little world, avoiding the world. While we are not to partake in the sins of the world, we are living here. We have to be willing to take a stand. Blessings from Costa Rica
