Different Crayons Makes Life More Colorful

hang in there with me on this one please…

you see, i’ve  always wondered  why people try to fit you into their mold (actually, i don’t even like the word “mold”, it’s a yucky word)…who says you’re supposed to be more like everyone else, or more like your mother, sister, brother, the kid down the street, etc…you get what i mean, right?
what is it about people? it’s the most frustrating thing i’ve struggled with my whole life!
but, this year i’ve given it much thought and i’ve decided that i’m going to be more like a box of crayons…you know, the really really really BIG box, with all the different colors?

yeah, that’s me…because, then i can be any color i want, given any situation…it’s not that i’m a social chameleon, by any means.  it’s just that i have such a diverse personality, and i finally realized i was born this way! so what’s a person to do wit that? well,  i’ve decided to come up with a new personality type…i’m callin’ it ” the crayon personality“…all it means is,now you don’t fit into one type, not an A type or B type…because there are those of us that would be considered a “BBC” type (BIG Box of Crayons)! you see? it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that one!!!

so, now that i have it figured out (for myself, that is), i’d say  it’s got to be a really BIG box! so that means,  there’s plenty of room for anyone who’s brave enough to jump in!! think about it for a minute, if God made us all different, then we should alllllll be who we were created to be! can you imagine what a beautiful tapestry we could make if we all hung out in the same box, not worrying about who’s what color? WOW, that’s the way i like it, we could  be anything (or any color) without hearing the noise from those who are contrary…hmmmm, it’s sounding better by the minute!

so what do you say? want to make our own creation, want to be freeeeeee?  think about it for a minute… we can all be whatever we want and we can help become an example of that beautiful tapestry …wow, we’d make God pretty proud don’tcha think?

peace out…

Divine Help Never Fails…

GOD WILL DIRECT UR STEPS

i apologize for this one being so lengthy, as i can’t seem to find an easier/shorter way to express myself about this subject…and, i will keep it about me, as not to judge anyone who’s been down this road…
here’s the deal…
at times when life threw me some curve balls i tried everything i could, and sometimes nothing seemed to help…i used to think i went to the right people, places and/or things for help, sometimes it helped and sometimes not.
as years went on, i found i was going to the wrong people, thinking they were friends, unfortunately i found they were only there for what they needed from me(i was ok with that b/c my heart is to help others if i can, so i understood it) but yet, it frustrated me b/c now i needed some guidance and there was none to be found, or so i thought.
i began to honestly seek divine help more than ever (i always talked to God , but i never thought i had the right to ask Him to help me with something as trivial as needing people who could teach me or pray with me for help, after all, isn’t He too busy with life’s tragedies and worldwide stuff like war, poverty and disease? i was clueless, being raised catholic i was taught prayers for myself was selfish and prideful as others needs were more important!…
i’m going to skip past this part (it will all be in my book one day lol)
i did find God had particular people He’s given me to go to for prayer and guidance and at times like this,  i will turn to those who are close to my heart and spirit…i know God has put them in my life to stand with me in the best and worst of times. some of them, sadly, have been through the worst of times and yet they are always there for me…(i will always admire and honor them for having such unconditional, loving hearts for me and others).
right now there is no human help for what’s taking place in the here and now, but i do know this, in these times i can and will seek those who God has given me, after seeking Him in all His wisdom…being soul-y dependent on Him, trusting Him and expecting Him to open the path of peace and keep me walking in it steadily as i wait for Him to bring to pass the answers i need.
i know this may sound like gibberish to some…but give me a moment to try to explain a bit…
when there is something in your life that continually causes pain and no matter what you do, it doesn’t ease up, only divine intervention can be the answer… even after some long heartfelt prayer, this is when i realize my efforts of begging or pleading are in vain…why? because there is One who was moved with compassion and love, to come to my aid…but the truth is, He was moved a long time ago and took care of business long before i needed it…
when i came to that realization for the first time, it began to give me a deeper glimpse into the reality of the One who made the earth, the stars, and all things, including human beings…
i don’t want to get into another story here, but i do know this, there is a God who is so loving, so caring, that before our troubles began, He saw to it to give us the answer to every problem before they happened…
by me thinking about ME and MY problem so much, i left out the most important part of the equation…HIM! it seems i lose sight of the whole picture at times and forget there is an answer, even if it’s beyond my seeing at the moment…
i’ve learned through the years, the more i put myself aside and choose to focus on Him the more i begin to understand things from a heavenly perspective.
it’s true i see with my eyes, but i also have spiritual eyes, and i’m choosing more and more each day to look with those eyes, they seem to tell me the truth.
i have found, that if i ask to see with His eyes i get a better perspective on each situation.
this is the divine help that never fails me…with it, i can’t go wrong, it gives me clarity without my emotions getting in my way. and my spiritual friends are an added bonus that God has given me…and silly me, all i had to do was ask for divine help, and voila!
i’m always amazed at how simple things can be…geez, if i only had the sense to understand and ask, but then again, fear kept me from asking, BUT not anymore…i’m freeeeee and it feels good, even in my given situation, i will trust Him, knowing He has all the answers, all i have to do is ask for it to be brought into the light…and, obviously, He is the one who turns on the switch…

peace out…
