I have been looking forward to this post ALL week! First of all, let me give a big shout out to Andrea at Under Grace Over Coffee for hosting Caffeinated Randomness on Fridays. I love taking part. This gives a home to all of my random thoughts…none of which could stand alone in a single blog post.
The other night (at that birthday for one of my besties) I was scrolling through my phone to find recent pictures of my boys. So a friend and I sat, shoulder to shoulder, as I looked…”This is Lukey. This was Grant’s first day of school. This was…..um. This was when I went shopping at Target and text Brent a picture to see what he thought. This was when Ethan got a hold of my camera. This was when Luke got a hold of my camera.”
Cracking up. Bad angles. Unflattering. Random photo after photo. And they were hilarious.
This got me to thinking. Wonder what we would all learn about each other if we looked at each other’s “should be deleted” pictures?
First off, we would have to completely die to image. For the most part, I only post pretty good pictures of myself or my family. Everyone smiling. Good lighting. Cute clothes.
But 98% of the time, my life is a crooked angle. A bit out of focus. Screaming kids. Dirty faces. No make-up. Silly. Messy. And extremely imperfect.
So this morning, I am keeping it real…and random.
Today, I revel in my imperfection.
I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. [Christ says,] “My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me….For it is when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:5,8-10
Enjoy a good giggle on me…
It is very appropriate to say that, most days, Jesus is all I’ve got going for me.
I hope you will visit my blog again. 😉
Love you all…
