I've had a few guesses as to the
false statement in the previous post.
David T. suggested that they were
all true. :)
Ruth V. said - "I almost
moved to an island in Alaska."
Kristin V. submitted - "I
didn't get my license until I was 18."
Kathryn J. kept her submission
secret but said she's sure of the answer.
I'm sure you're all on pins and
needles waiting for the answer. So without further ado...
The one false statement is
"I was homeschooled all my life."
So that makes all the other ones true!
(You might want to read through that list again...)
I doubt some of you will be
shocked, but I was considered a serious dork back in the day. I was and still
am a book-nerd. Words and the use or disuse of them is very important to me. I
have a continuous grammar-check and spell-check going in my brain. Since having
kids, it has calmed some, but every now and then my nerd-self has a flare-up.
:) Writing and striving for the perfect blend of words to illustrate an idea in
bold color make for more flare-ups. I think it's just who I am.
It took long enough, but I'm
finally okay with my nerdiness! I'm not cool - I'm just me. :)
The exercise of writing this list
came from my recent journey of coming to terms with my life experiences. I'm
sure there are, at the very least, several posts in there somewhere! Some are
difficult, some are sweet, some heart-wrenching, some have long-term
side-effects, some are the best things ever, some (like my hair in school pics)
I'd rather never think about again... but sifting through each one has been
good - hard - but in the end good.
In fact, I'd highly recommend
Make a list of facts about your
life. Facts that some people may know or not know. Stuff maybe you've never
said before. Compile it. Look at it. Read it. Those things make up who you are
today. For better or worse. Look at it and see beyond those things the God of
the universe who loves you.
God is not limited by your
experiences. If He was, well let's just say He wouldn't be God. But since He is
the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords - He's BIG enough to even
orchestrate the events in your life to create the person you are now. Taking
the pieces of yourself you don't like out of His tapestry would leave ugly gaps
and spaces. He has designed you and even used your worst moments to show His
Let God be God. We're not.
He has the ultimate right over
your life - and He's better at it. :)
So as you're "Carpe Diem-ing" and dancing in the rain... remember
He's still working because He loves to take messed up people and show His
