I have the wonderful honor of getting to be around fabulous people, like Pam who did my makeup & Christie who did my hair today. Both of these wonderful ladies & a boatload of other fantastic peeps (like Demetria, Garrett, Molly, Ivorie & more) are folk behind the scenes in tv / webland for CBN with the 700 Club. These people are magnificent in glorious ways: kind, patient, FUN & super smart!

Everyone has unique strengths & we are at our best when we are ourselves & do what we are good at. Here are some ideas that might help us as we endeavor to be our best:

  • Be sincere – fake & pretentious can be repulsive
  • Be kind – there’s more than enough cranky to go around
  • Be forgiving – taking offense is the low road
  • Be YOU! You are fearfully & wonderfully made!

hot topic: crazy love

When I read the news, seeing all kinds of awful things going on, sometimes I want to curl up in a corner with a blanket, headphones & a good book.

And then I saw this today, which is a nice wake up call:

While I fully understand that police are flawed humans, I also appreciate that they routinely put their lives at risk to protect and serve.  I like that this lady expresses her love with such sincerity & I hope I can be as authentic and sincere 🙂

who does that?!?!!!

The world in which we live has some people who do some really crazy things – holding their breath for multiple minutes for deep water diving, wrestling with aligators, playing polo with a sheep head & lots of even crazier things!  Who does that kind of stuff???

Here’s a quiz.  Who does this kind of stuff?

  • disagrees with the religious & cultural norms
  • touches disease infested people, endeavoring to make them better
  • welcomes everyone who is ostracized, outcast and isolated
  • seemingly abandons his friends at the very worst possible time
  • does everything within his power to help people, even when they’re ungrateful

Guess who???
