‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭ESV‬‬


Being odd can be the best possibility when you are in step with The Spirit.  Often people are bullied and chastised for being different, even when they are doing the right thing.  Seeing the painting of the platypus (http://www.sincerelysarahstudios.comreminded me how beautiful oddity can be.  We need to encourage others to be who God has made them to be, even if that seems odd.  Trying to be different to please others or because of societal pressures is not an excuse to be odd however.

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:30‬ ‭ESV‬‬

God has blessed me with two beautiful daughters. They have always been stars in my life, brightening my days. Each of them has different gifts and talents, but both put God first in their lives. Though everyone makes some deviations off the path of righteousness, they inspire me with their focus on doing right at all times. (And let me know when they think I am off course) Yes, they are physically beautiful too, but more importantly, they have beautiful hearts and souls. They deserve my praise and I thank God for them every day.
