A World of My Own…

July 12, 2011
Since last week’s Good to Wow tutorial, I’ve been playing with the Invert function…and because it’s so hot outside, I’ve been dreaming of Fall temperatures. As a result, I’ve taken a dip in my October 2010 archives…specifically in my NC State Fair archives. I’m not exactly sure what this quote says about my life right now (actually, I think I do know, but that message is far from complete), but this quote by the Mad Hatter really struck a cord with me. What I do know is that I’m so glad I don’t have to live in a world of my...

Last week, I shared with you Part 1 of a new series at my church called: Am I the Change? This past week, we continued the series…with a specific focus on where we each fit into the change. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” You know, it’s true…so often we see a need but we’re not always willing to get our hands dirty.As you know, the best way for me to reflect on the message each week is to retell the story here. So with that in mind, let’s dive into the scripture. In John, Chapter 21, Jesus appears to the...
