My reflection

I am a child of God. I no longer feel quiet, shy, shame, guilt, fear, voiceless, weak, jealous, insecure, unattractive or powerless. Now when I look in the mirror, I smile as wide as the ocean's floor. Oftentimes when I look at my reflection I stare straight into my eyes and ask, "Jesus are you in there?" And as sure as the sun rises new each day, the Holy Spirit says in my child like voice, "Of course He is you silly girl." Then I burst into laughter and proceed with my day.

How comforting to know that wherever I am, He is there also. Living and breathing inside of me.

Hi China Sweetie...
Oh honey, I do the same thing sometimes when I look in my rearview mirror. I have asked him are you listening to me? Do you see me here? I know he is laughing as well, saying yes you silly girl, I am listening and I do see you.

He still hasn't given me the answer sheet to all my questions though. One day sweet friend. One day.

I am sending you BIG hugs and SO much love. It sounds like you needed a little girl LOVE today and I am here to bring it to you. HUGS of LOVE Sweetie. Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Good morning Sherry and thanks for the LOVE! Although yesterday was Wednesday, it felt like Monday and I was swamped. And although today is Thursday for most folks, it's Friday in my Police world. So I'll take the next 2 days, Lord willing and meditate and volunteer; two of my favorite things!

w/love and hugs

I have always felt there was an angel sitting on my shoulder protecting me from harm.
My life had so many close calls, whereby others in my position would not have been so lucky,and yet I always managed to be able to walk away.
I believe in God and especially today,I find myself talking about his world more than I ever did before because I came to realize that people need to hear things more than just from the Bible.
They need to believe because there is something out there bigger than us and it is good.

Hello Miss Butterfly.

I have to keep a keen eye out for you cuz you slip in and then slip out of sight. :-)

But what about a time called now.

Today you've left me with something I can use.

Thanks and stay sweet.

Happy Friday Family -

My Lady, that's my new favorite word. "B-e-l-i-e-v-e!"

Ms. Tiffany, what an awesome surprise. Thanks for stopping by. Everytime I see "sign post" I think about you and ask myself what is the "message" trying to really tell me?

Mr. Carey - I stop by when the Lord puts you on my heart! I am trying my best to be obedient ;-)

Love for a great day,
Free Spirit Butterfly
