Today is my 33rd birthday. As I considered how to "celebrate" on this blog, I thought about birthdays past here at Tulipa Murillo. Two years ago, right before we found out we were expecting Linus and our whole world was thrown for a loop, I shared some resolutions. I know better that to try and do THAT again. Last year, I did the usual "32 things about me" post. Quite frankly, I don't have time for such things. I shared thankful things as post 100. I REALLY don't have time for another one of those! And at post 200? Well...let's just say that three of you are still waiting for your 50 cookies. So much for the best of intentions.
So for this post, I decided to give you all a piece of who I really am. And WHY I am. So, here goes:
"If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." 1 John 1:8-10
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, "The righteous shall live by faith." Romans 1:16-17
That, my friends, is what I am all about. I pray that as you read this blog, these truths ring through.
Thanks to sitemeter, I can tell I've picked up some new readers. If you feel like leaving me a comment, just to tell me you're checking in, I'd be tickled pink.
