Born to Stand Out

You know how it seems your favorite TV shows are all pre-empted for Christmas specials that you’ve seen a-thousand times…

Last night flipping through the channels to find something different and stumbled on one of those cheesy princess movies “What a Girl Wants” made for tween girls.

There was the scene where the commoner boy said to the young girl who just discovered she’s royalty…but didn’t feel like she fit into the world of prim and proper.  He said: 

“Why try so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out.”

Maybe you have felt that way too.   You’re trying so hard to fit into a world that you don’t agree with. 

You can melt under the pressure, or you can stand out and be a person with conviction and a backbone. Stand up for what is right, make decisions that honor God.  That’s what you were born to do.    The Easy thing…not always the right thing.  Never is.

O Christmas Tree?

Maybe you’ve said this too…it seemed like a good idea at the time…yeah…

You know what it feels like to go to one of those places where you can cut down your own Christmas Tree…and like the Griswalds you forgot the saw…

Well..tried to avoid that type of incident this year…but really wanted to get a real tree.  But with 3 little kids didn’t think I could get it on the car in the house on my own.

So, did what any self respecting minivan driving suburban mother would do…ordered it online…having it delivered.

Seemed like a good idea at the time.

It’s still not here.  Every day…they ask…is today the day we get our tree?  The ornaments are waiting…the lights are wadded up in tangled mess…just waiting…

I need like a GPS tracker for this tree…like that NORAD app that tracks Santa on his sleigh on Christmas Eve…

Maybe you have had the pleasure of teaching a 5 and 3 year old patience…they look at you like…you’re speaking like the teacher in the Charlie Brown Christmas special…whah whah whah whah
