i'm honored

i am truly honored that my friend Livingsword has awarded me with this much coveted award. i feel undeserving right now because i have been so neglectful of my blog. however, i will endeavor to live up to the potential that livingsword sees in me and get back to it.

stay tuned to read more grains of truth that hopefully "hit the mark"!

the disillusioned wannabe

Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in the mirror and after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. James 1:23-24

i love watching the auditions to "so you think you can dance". they really get all types, from the truly dedicated and talented to completely disillusioned wannabes. i've noticed that the best dancers are the most humble. they are so grateful for any critique and are sincerely honored when they are chosen. often, the really bad dancers are astonished and defensive when they are told that they don't measure up. it's like they have never taken a good look at themselves or believed any honest feedback.

possessing a teachable and humble heart is the key to spiritual and personal growth. a person with a teachable heart longs to change and knows that he or she will not find the means to do so within themselves. direction and feedback are necessary ingredients. however, unless we are willing to receive the feedback and put it into action we will remain a disillusioned wannabe.

I'm Totally Fabulous

Max at has awarded me. This award is given out to those bloggers who are fun, cool, and of course Totally Fabulous! The rules are - pass on the award to 5 people and link back to the authors. (authors: Christy and Ann).
I am of course totally honored!! Thank so much Max!
Since I am such a newbie at blogging (you wouldn't believe what it took me to figure out what to do with this!!) I will sit on it for a bit before passing it on. I will be on the lookout for Totally Fabulous blogs.
