As I said in my first post, I am, among other things, a Christian. Please don't let this turn you off. I am far from perfect, will never judge you, will always appreciate your perspective and know that we are all walking this path and taking this journey together. This is a NO JUDGEMENT zone!! That being said, I love this saying: I AM A DAUGHTER OF THE RISEN KING WHO IS NOT MOVED BY THE WORLD FOR MY GOD IS WITH ME AND GOES BEFORE ME I DO NOT FEAR BECAUSE I AM HIS. I wish I could tell you that that is the motto by which I live my entire life; the truth is, I am moved, ALL THE TIME! I am an emotional being and my emotions tend to always get the best of me no matter how hard I fight against them. They are little gremlins that seem sweet and cute and make me all lovey, helpful, cheerful, etc. until I get hit with the water of life; stress, illness, fatigue, hormones, etc. Then watch out!! I morph into this creature that even I don't want to be around!! What's more, I am sure God made me this way! I am sure that I am meant to tame these emotions and use them for something good. Therein lies the issue. How in the world do you tame emotions that seem to always have their own agenda? They are like uninvited guests that show up when you least expect, or want, them to. Well ladies, and gents - if you braved it to this point, I guess if there's anything to be learned on this journey, we will learn it together in love, hope, faith, and friendship. Thanks for keeping me company and have a blessed day!!
