When I say that I am a Christian, I am not shouting that I am clean living;
I'm whispering I was lost, but 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.

I know I have been MIA...I promise to be back soon!

Hey Stacey, good to hear from you. Hope you had a very nice Christmas.

I like the post today. These things are so true about when we say we are Christians. You did a fine job in thinking of and writing this down for us.

Thanks, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Nannette

I agree with Mimi. I was about to hack in and post another photo of you and the family because Mimi's mug was posted on here like she owned the joint!!! LOL.

Glad to see you are back and I love this post. Great message for sure!

Just letting you know that we are missing you! I was MIA the day you posted this, but was thinking about you and wanted to drop a quick hello!

Have a wonderful New Years Eve!

Ah... I was just looking through the blogs that I am following and was relieved to see that I am following you. (That sounds just plain silly doesn't it?) I was in and out of blogland myself in December. I think of you sometimes when Mimi comments and I realized I hadn't checked in a while.

I hope your Christmas was wonderful!
