be ME

This has absolutely nothing to do with the post, I just really like
the hat and the kid's expression ;)

{no, not ME.....just read on and you'll know what the title's about}
Hello, girls! I hope y'all a good Christmas {and for those of you who didn't celebrate Christmas, I hope y'all had a lovely time enjoying your Lord. :)}

I took a bit of a break from blogger along with my Christmas break, and well, I missed y'all! You guys {or girls as I should say} never fail to encourage me or post something on your blogs about just the thing I needed reminded of. :) {just sayin'} :)

Sooo, I had a pretty cool experience the other week.

At the Christmas Service {on Christmas Morning}, near the end, Pastor asked us all to silently pray and ask the Lord what he wanted to do with our lives in the New Year.
   
                                             So I did.

The answer was pretty quick, and not all that quiet. I heard it very cleary. :) His reply was: {guess!}
                                                                          "Be ME." 
Be ME. That's all he said. Be ME.
 But that was enough. I understood. Be as Jesus is. Be as Jesus was, as he lived when he came down to this wretched place. Love people. Love God. Respect. Obey.

So, I've taken it upon me to be Jesus. Would you like to to join me?
I'll leave y'all with this verse:
                      If we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.  Galatians 5:25 

Thanks so much to my newest follower, Crista Moriah! :)

  4. Glad you are back, girl! I missed you. =)

    I do understand the need for a break from all things computer-related - I just scheduled most of my posts over the Christmas holidays, and that worked really well.

    Happy 2012 - I hope you find yourself enjoying a wonderful new year. =)

    Sierra- I know, right? And I always love it when I see in "Amish" books the word boppli...sometimes I kinda squeal... :) And, yeah, it'll be hard, but I know with God I know I can at least be a FAINT bit like Him, thanks for doing it with me!
