When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin,'I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

I turned 30...

My sweet Mimi and Poppi
Larry is celebrating.

Dina had everything decorated soo cute!

Last week I turned thirty. It was a great day. My mom took me shopping and surprised me with my Mimi waiting at the mall. We had a blast and stimulated the economy.

After that, Stephen said we were going to dinner and we went to pick up Marcus and Dina. When we got to the Watson's, SURPRISE, he had put together a party for me along with the help of many others. It was so special! I was so excited to have my friends and family together.
