Is Seeing Believing?

Everyone collects something...
For me, it is a word.


At first it was a gimic for me...
My Houston Astros were on their way to the World Series and the theme was


All of us would chant that word during a game when it looked like we weren't gonna make it...
But we did! Whooo Hoooo!
That's Right....THE HOUSTON ASTROS DID GO TO THE WORLD SERIES!

And so, that's how it started.

Everytime I would see a sign with the word


I would buy it...ok, if it was on sale... :)

But slowly, God began to show the real meaning of the word

through our life...

Things were tough.
Three of the five kids were in college and life began to feel empty.
Major LIFE and Major DRAMA happened.
You know...we aren't alone in that feeling I am SURE...

Then...
I realized that my little collected word


wasn't a chant for a baseball club anymore...

It was a choice.

I didn't have to put my faith in my circumstances, my job, my kids, my husband...even my reputation.
I only had to trust God - and



Now more than ever, everytime I see one of my signs, I remember this...

John 6:69

"And we


 and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God."

So now...my collection is a choice to ...
 

that ultimately- no matter what happens - what life brings - what people say,
I still belong to my Lord...
and He loves me...

Happy Monday Everyone!
