I am who I am

I know what I want to be. I wish I was who I want to be. But, I am not. I am me. This is me. Imperfect, sinful, crazy, me. Thank you Lord for your forgiveness and your love.

Just visited with an old friend of my fathers. It was an amazing visit. They brought gifts of old memories and strong faith. We talked about God and his unknown plan for all of us. Thank you Lord for friends old and new.

LOVE this song by Superchick...

Some people bring you gifts
Some bring you bricks to weigh you down
So they can swim a little higher while you drown
Some people mean so well
Their way was the best way that they found
But any other way you choose is a brick that weighs you down

So tell me what do I do with this backpack full of bricks
Of sticks and stones and words that stuck to me like ticks

Let it go, let it be, brick by brick we can be free
Of all the words we saved till we were our own enemies
Let it go, let it be, brick by brick we can believe
In the person God intended us to be
Let it be

Some people give themselves a brick
I know most people do
When we compare we fall short somewhere
It's always true
If all we see is where we fall we've bricked a prison wall
Instead of trying to learn to fly we've taught ourselves to Crawl

We could believe in ourselves more
we could try for unique Instead of trying to conform
We could defy what they tell us don't buy the lies they sell us
If we're brave we can believe in what we are
