Wow, so many visitors today! Well, I'm glad you all dropped by, people I've known as long as I can remember (Clark [yes, I am quite pathetic]) and those I don't know at all (Kim).

Anyway, welcome to my little world. If you get a chance, look back at some of my old stuff too. I always like to hear what people are thinking about the things I'm thinking.

And just to let you know, I post on Friday's. I'm not a posting machine, like some people.

Phil -

First of all thanks for opening up and sharing.

You are right, it is hard to know what it is like to live without the security of Christ when you received his gift at such a young age. I myself became a Christian at the age of 5.

My whole life has been full of drama, and I took some time in my late teens early twenties to see if the grass was greener on the other side - it's not. It's quite miserable actually.

God came that we might have life and have it more abundantly, but as Christians we let the devil steal our joy because sometimes what this world has to offer just seems wonderful.

I am not sure of your story, but trust me, you can definitely live without the drama. And take pride in the fact that you are one of the rare few that has been spared some horrible past filled with empty nights of drunkeness, wild sex, and weed.

Valla Con Dios.

I had to hit your blog after imploring to others to blog some love your way.

Always one to challenge conventional thinking and our hearts, you are a blessing to those that know you.

Sorry I don't have more time to blog on the discussion topics at the moment.

I'm glad you posted this since it was something that we talked about last night and I've mused about in the past. It's not that I wish I had a dramatic story to tell about falling away and finding myself in the pit of life, because I don't actually want to experience that if at all possible to be honest. But it is often thought, I think, that if one has not been rescued from some horrible ordeal then we can't share as effectively.

Thanks for the comments from the others that we all have a story, in fact the most beautiful story of all because we all share in the resurrection of Christ.

Well, I would say more but the ice cream truck is on its way and I must go according to our 3 year old.
