The Messenjah

Thanks to my ADD friend (when it comes to music...) Rick today's song is courtesy of P.O.D. (Payable On Death)  A Christian heavy metal band that my hub LOVES and Rick does to! 
Back in the day I listened to heavy metal a lot.  Not so much heavy like P.O.D. is but heavy nonetheless.  Now I can't really listen to it except for a song here or there.  I assume this is a sign of me getting old and any day now I will start exclusively listening to talk radio...NOT. 
So P.O.D.  has a lot of talent behind their name.  They are great musicians and off stage are just regular guys who happen to love Jesus.  Lanny is always got an ear bent to the music part of a group, specifically bass, and he's been impressed with their talent since day 1. 
This song is about the call all of us who believe in God walk under.  We are called to messenjah's (haha) of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We are the mouthpiece of God's wrath, love, forgiveness, salvation, etc.  WE ARE.  None of us get a pass.  None of us are exempt from the duty because "someone else" is probably doing it.  We are all called to be the messenjah's (haha again) of the Lord.  
So if you are a believer and you aren't walking in your call because you aren't sure how or whatever, find someone and talk to them, ask for help and start proclaiming Jesus Christ!

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 

Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 


So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!

And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
