Tradition!

This is our 5th Annual "Tell Us Who You Are" post!  Each year we take a moment to give you a chance to tell us about yourself.  We love to hear from our followers, so comment and let us know how you found our blog.  (Yes, that does include stalkers!)

As we are setting out on a new year--closing this chapter of our lives and opening the next--let us remember to keep Christ as our center.  Without Him our lives are meaningless, worthless, and useless.  Our focus must be on the Lord!  With Him guiding our lives, we will be blessed and have true success.  Although we will have our hardships, God will be right there by our sides, leading us along.  I heard a sermon the other day and the pastor challenged everyone to search out the things of God more this year.  He said, "If you seek Him this year, you will find out things you didn't know about Him."  Let that be our main goal this next year: to seek the Lord and dig deeper into His Word as we are searching for hidden treasure. 

"I have one desire now - to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it."
~Elisabeth Elliot

 "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
~Isaiah 40:31

"He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."
~Ecclesiastes  3:11

May the Lord bless each and everyone of you in 2014.
Happy New Year!

I would think by now that the cryptointeligent special agents would have me completely figured out. For I am sure that you know me better than I know myself.

I haven't known you long enough, but I know you better than anyone. I'm a friend that sticks closer than a brother, I found your blog in my second year of knowing you. I'm a colossal dame, with convoluted hair and jade sapphire eyes. I plan on knowing you for the rest of my life, either in spirit or in truth. I'm in your thoughts, I'll be all around in the dark - I'll be everywhere. Wherever you can look - I'll be there. Wherever there's a member of your clan, I'll be there. I'll be there when you're sad. I'll be there when you laugh, when your hungry, when you need a listening ear and no one's there- I'll be there, too, in spirit but not in truth.

Who am I?
