I Am Who I Am

Life has been hectic lately and blogging sporadic, but today I have something to say. I am who I am. This statement has nothing to do with God's statement to Moses in Exodus 3:14.



This is a completely different subject. I am who I am. I am. So, I am. I created this blog to have a voice in the world, to be able to confront some of the false things and ideas about Christianity and my Lord that I see in the blogsphere. I created this blog to have a record of my life as an army wife and to keep friends and family back home updated on our life since we are so far away. I am who I am. I am a child of the living God. I am a wife. I am a daughter. I am a mother. I am a church goer. I am the wife of a soldier. I am the wife of a commander. I am the mother of a pet. I am a friend. I am a sister. I am living in a foreign country. I am learning 3 different languages. I am a nurse. I am a blogger. I am a reader. I like all kinds of different things. I like all kinds of different music. I have very strong opinions about lots of things. I am strong minded. I will likely not change my opinion just because someone thinks I should. I am down to earth. I am unimpressed by pretension. lol There is a statement in one of my favorite movies "Steele Magnolias" that says, "An ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure" and a truer statement I've rarely heard.
So, to the people out there who seem to think I should be this or I should be that. Worry about your own self. I am who the Lord made me and He is molding me to be even better.

You sound just fine to me. The LOrd is still working on me. I know, and I am 65 years old. He has changed me much during my life and no doubt He will you. But it should be Him that does any changing to you that needs to be changed if any. Other wise it will not last.

You little one is growing so much and gets prettier every day.

I sure hope your back is better. It has been my hip that has been giving me problems and I have not been able to sit at the computer much. I hope you all are having a happy New Year. connie

Sorry about your back. I have not been visiting blogs much lately as I have been busy here. Just checking in on you!

Amen! You know, allowing Him to mold you is the best thing you can do. Trying to please others is not the best thing you can do, just please the Lord with a sweet, teachable spirit.

I know you feel better getting that post off your chest, so to speak.

I love who you are, Miss Rebecca! You are a great encouragement to me, and your posts are real life. As a military brat, I respect you and your family a lot for the sacrifices you make...it takes a lot to be a military family!

My mama and I recently watched "Steele Magnolias", and it's good to know someone else who likes it, too.
Take care, Miss Rebecca! :hug:
