Are you serious?

 I've been told that I'm a "deep thinker".  I had never thought much about describing me that way, but I see where it probably fits.  I have a tendency to analyze every little thing that's said and done....and way too often I get offended when I was probably the farthest thing from that person's mind....
....at least I HOPE so!!!
(see.....there I go again.....;-)


   I've also been told that I'm a "stick in the mud"....probably because I don't go along with a lot of  what I think is foolishness!!!  
But....having said that....I promise that I do have fun....
....and I do laugh and cut up!!!
I promise!!!

Here are few pics to prove it!!!

 Plus....you should hear me when I watch Funniest Home Videos with the GRANDsons!!!

But....I know that being a CHRISTian is serious business.  It doesn't mean we need to live life in a "no fun zone"....but being a CHRISTian....means being CHRIST-like....it means wanting to show everybody that we meet that there's something different about us.   It's not an outward happiness that counts the most.....it's the inner peace and joy!!!

Mr. Rick Warren sums it up this way in
The Purpose Driven Life....

When you live in light of eternity, your values change. You use your time and money more wisely. You place a higher premium on relationships and character instead of fame or wealth or achievements or even fun. Your priorities are reordered.  Keeping up with trends, fashions, and popular values just doesn't matter as much anymore.

Philippians 3:7
I once thought these things were valuable, 
but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. 

HOPE each of you have a fun-filled....
laughter laden.....wonderful Wednesday!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
