Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

It's not about me. It's not about what I want. It's not about how I feel. It's not about my rights. It's not about what someone said about me. It's not how so and so looked at me. It's not about who is right and who is wrong. It's not about who is doing better. It's not about who isn't talking to who. It's not about "I just don't like them". It's not about am I'm good enough. It's not about the job. Its not about how you're being treated. It's not about my friends. It's not about defending myself. It's not about saying whatever I want. It's not about having a good time. It's not about taking care of me. It's not about books, movies, games, Facebook. It's not about what color I am. It's not about who likes me. It's not about am I happy. It's not about a car, a house, or a boat. It's not about that special girl/boy. It's not about money. It's not about you. 

It's about souls. It's about serving Him. It's about surrendering your will to His. It's about being nice even when they aren't. It's about being willing to be used but never loved. It's about loving even when you aren't being loved. It's about how I use my lips, my hands, my feet, my knees. It's about prayer. It's about loving the unlovable and the lovable. It's about going the extra mile. It's about not being effected by the petty stuff. It's about obeying. It's about giving my enemy my coat when they're cold. It's about spending my money, my time on what's important. It's about being a servant. It's about doing it for Him. It's about truth. It's about the Word. It's about I'm not good enough but He loves and saved me anyway. It's about having compassion. It's about loving Him enough to get rid of what can even be called good cuz it isn't good for me. It's about being uncomfortable. It's about speaking the truth in love. It's about interceding. It's about always being willing to be used. For others. It's about him. It's about her. It's about Christ. It's not about me. 
What is my life about. Is it about Him? Cuz if it's not, it's about nothing. 

And THAT is what He has been reminding me of lately and what I will always be learning. 

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face...
1 Corinthians 13:12

Hey...remember me??

I have really been wanting to get back into blogging but kept waiting for the "perfect" subject/thought/whatever. I've finally decided I just have to do it! Each day is special and holds millions of moments that are shareable. So I chose today and snow :-)
Today we got over a foot of snow (it was up to the swings in the back yard!!!) That's the most we've had in seven years I'm pretty sure. Needless to say I had a snow day! :-D A couple people in my house did NOT grab the opportunity to be "trapped" at home and insisted (I live with such stubborn people!) on going out for various (not really that important) reasons ;-) But I drank in every moment at home sitting around watching movies, talking to friends online, laughing with my dad as he ventured forth into the snow, cleaned some, made mashed potatoes and chicken noodle soup (what else do you make on a snow day??), and then ended the evening with three rounds of Scattergories (of which I won none....) with my Daddy and brother :-) It was a wonderful day; and because I could not choose just one photo of the snow (or the day's activities) I'll share a bunch :-P
How's that for a "welcome back into my life" day/post? :-)

Oh! I started the snow day last night by making snow cream! The fun never ends :-)
