There I said it. Whew, that's a relief! What is "normal" anyway?? Isn't it relative??
I definitely have different ways of thinking and saying things that sometimes make people shake their head, or laugh with an "Ohhh, Jenn."
I will state flat out - I am a believer. I believe in the power of God and I believe that He has a master plan for me and I believe that He sent His son Jesus Christ to save me from my sins. I believe that the only way to the Father is through the Son. I believe in the Bible & what it teaches.
I also believe in ghosts. Well, spirits left behind. I believe this very specifically because when I was younger, my dad's house was seriously haunted. To this, I have several witnesses. I loved my dad and all, but if I was going to his house for the weekend - I was taking friends with me so I didn't have to sleep in my room alone! (please feel free to chime in, you know who you are) It was seriously creepy! I don't understand it, but I believe it.
Because I believe in God, the Father, Son & Holy Spirit, I also believe in Heaven. However, I believe that I will need to wait on line before I can get in. I know I'm going, I just think the Big Guy is going to have quite a lot to say to me. There will be others with less to account for, and others with more - but this is my mental picture. Sort of like the waiting room in the movie Beatlejuice, but absolutely incredible. It's OK if I need to wait on line - because not only is time relative, but I KNOW there's dancing in Heaven! I love to dance!! I'm quite sure that while I'm on line, I will be dancing with the angels & best of all I'll get to speak directly with God. I believe it all to be wonderful.
Both of these things, I've gotten the head shake & the words "that's not Biblical" and yes, I know - but this is a way better line of thinking than others. I also think that even God shakes His head & laughs. After all - He is fully responsible for my sense of humor. Thank you Big Guy, You rock! :)
I do also believe that when I do get my chance to come face to face with the Almighty, that I will drop to my knees and be in total awe.
He has given me a lot to be thankful for & one of them is that I am NOT at all normal!
And I am thankful for all of you...
