This is at the Orlando Airport. Why would I take a picture of this? I like fountains, and well, this is pretty. I like pretty things and quite frankly I think we need more pretty in this world! That is my answer for most pictures. I know that sounds very feminine of me, but that's me! I like me the way I am.

Because I am a follower of Jesus, my opinion isn't as important as His, but I think He is pretty happy with me being who I am. I know He is, because He delights in who He made us to be. He is quite deliberate about what He does. Women who obey His ways and stay close by His side can be the most confident, and fulfilled women in the world.

Only Jesus can fill the empty pockets of our hearts.We get wind blown and tossed as we walk through life, but we don't have to stay there. He is eager to come in when we are completely sure we want Him. Lives won't change if we are ho-hum about a relationship with God. He doesn't do anything halfway. No, He wants all of us, so that His glory and wonder can be revealed to those around us who need Him the most.
"As for me, I call to God, and the Lord saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. He rescues me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me. {Psalm 55:16-18}

Dear Lord Jesus, Help me to remember that others are watching and looking to see if you really are Lord of my life, and what that means. I would never want to misrepresent you, and so I ask you to keep me close by your side. This world is more volatile  than ever before, and some may not understand that your care for them looks like harm. The best way has always been the hard way. The truth can hurt, and so help us to listen closely to what you say, so we can understand the whole picture. You alone know the beginning from the end. Amen.
