The Best Silverware?

Amazing, simple truths that we find out about ourselves and how we all have these false masks of appearances, For me the question than has become if I take the mask down and let you see the real me will you still love me, not just you but also God (even though He knows me with my mask on or off). That’s what I was like when I got to the place that I could learn to let God love me. (and others. )

The Bottom of a Bottle

Last night I had this thought about alcohol addiction and came to the conclusion that mine was a bit like this…

It’s was like one of those proud mother’s, who keeps the best cutlery and plates shut away in a cupboard, rarely used, the family uses the cheap stuff, they never get to see the best family silver, it’s put away in the back of the cupboard, not seeing the light of day.

Then there comes the visitors, so the mother takes it all out of the cupboard, she doesn’t want people to see or use the cheap stuff, because that’s how people will judge her, it’s all about impression, making it look like everything is good.  So then they all eat off the best plates, with the good silver knives and forks.

But when everyone has gone, it’s washed and put back away in the darkness of the cupboard…

About leftnfree

I am a flawed Christian who loves Jesus more than anything. Originally from the east coast of the US (Philadelphia, Pa). Currently living in Az. I am a single female who has no children. I do have a bunch of nieces and nephews. I do love to dance, swim, sing, travel, and play. I love dogs and am allergic to cats an sulfa. I don't drink or do street drugs or abuse prescription drugs. I love the USA and am ashamed of some of the folks that are running the show in DC (both parties). Personally, I don't think that our founding fathers intended for the service of our members of congress was supposed to be a life long job. I think that they meant for it to be short term. I love all kinds of movies but classics are becoming my favorite more and more. I do not like much of what is on television today because the world of make believe "reality tv" is unreal, and the rest well I just don't like the animation programs either. I love Jesus and try to serve Him with all I am becoming more an more like Him daily. I may stumble and I may make a mistake but I can always count on the loving arms of my Jesus and my Heavenly Father to come pick me up again and help me stand. I am not afraid of trying or failing but I am afraid of bragging and doing it on my own. I try to love all people and help all people (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't). But even in that God is my all an all. That is who I am. Nothing more and nothing less. What you see is what you get. Like I said at the beginning I am flawed. I am human, and while I am not sinless I am able to sin less and help others to learn how to sin less. God is good. I hope that you enjoy reading the things that I write.
