Quiet

Well the house is quiet and everyone is sleeping, well my twin and the kids at least. Evan's out golfing with my brother-in-law...something I wish he did more often. Recently Evan posed a good question to me that was brought up in his discussion group with some men. Do the wolves in sheep clothing talked about in the Bible, know that they are in fact wolves? Interesting. I think that the answer can go either way depending on the situation. I sometimes feel like I am in disguise in this world only because hardly anyone really knows the inside of me. I open up to people with time much like my husband but it takes situations like a game of golf to get Evan to open up and sometimes share his goofy side (which that man can be crazy in the right crowd) and for me, I don't know. Right now I'm spending the weekend in St. Louis and for the first time YEARS my sister and I will be having a girls night out which I am very much looking forward too. While we talk, it will be nice to get to know her better and likewise it will be nice sharing new things about me with her. But right now with the peace and quiet surrounding me...I'll ponder...I am ever a wolf that scares off people or just another scared sheep trying to blend in. I know a bit off from the Bibical message but the characters are still the same. Lol.
I'm out. Jess

I think that wolves know themselves better than sheep.

People know if they have made a decision to be a wolf.

Those who wonder what they are - they are just confused sheep.

Blending in seems to be the way to go, yet I am not that way. Outside of Eddie and my kids, no one really knows me, they may have known more about me in the past, but time has went on and I have changed. Jesus is the only one who truly knows everything about me and continues to encourage me to be who He has called me to be. It can be lonely at times, but thank God Jesus will never leave us or forsake us. He is faithful. I pray you and your sister have a wonderful time getting to know one another better than you did. God Bless You!
