Its time for me to go to bed, so I thought I would give a few “end of my day” thoughts.
1 – Chicago weather is strange – and it sure doesn’t help with transporting kids everywhere, however I am thankful for working heaters in vehicles, and open windows for fresh air.
2 – Aloe Vera juice is strange – so, my wife decided that today would be a good day to purchase aloe vera juice.  Apparently the cactus salve isnt just good for the outside but it’s also good for the inside.  Who knew?!?!?!  However, I think I was the only one in our family who was given a small glass to drink…
3 – God is strange – ok, so that may offend a few of my religious friends but I am ok with that.  I love that God is strange, that the way that He expresses His love for others is different than the world can present.  That His grace for us is unexplainable and unapproachable in earning.  I love that God’s mercy has no limit and disqualifies NO ONE.  I’ll take that kind of strange every day.
4 – Christians using the word “sexy” is strange – Maybe it’s just me (and maybe I am one of my own religious friends) but hearing christians using the word sexy as if it were a “normal” adjective is a little strange.  We are on a negative talk fast, so it has me being careful to BUILD up on this one.  So, I think the best and right thing for me to say is let’s stand OUT in the world.
Strange – The dictionary spells it out great!!! not previously visited, seen, or encountered; unfamiliar or alien
I think that is what we are supposed to be in this world…

  • 1 Peter 2:11 – Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul.
  • John 17:16 – “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
  • Philippians 3:20 – For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;

5 – I am strange – and I am really ok with that 🙂
Much love!
