Recently, I was watching an episode of Sesame Street.  My 9 month old of course was not.  Everyone on the show had a case of "mineitis" and no one was sharing, not even Big Bird!!  It had spread from person to person like some terrible virus.  Needless to say it was a brutal world, this world where no one was sharing.   I have thought about that episode for weeks now, while considering to do this blogging thing.  I have been prayerfully considering this "new hobby" for several months now and shame on me for taking so long.  Usually when God has given you a "nugget" it is meant for you.....but ONLY you?? I know the answer...

My friend recently and lovingly called me "a mystery".  What she meant and  what I heard were probably very different.  I am introverted and a few would call me quiet:)lol,  but I would hate to think that I went through this life as a complete mystery to people.  Christians are not mysteries.  At least, they shouldn't be.  

I am reminded  that even Christians are also vulnerable to this "mineitis".  2009 belongs to the Lord, just as 2008 and 2007 and so forth.   We forget that EVERYTHING belongs to God, and God SHARED his Son with us out of Love.......
and so I'm putting my self  "out there"  and I pray that in the sharing, the One who created me is glorified.  The One who knows me better than anyone else, not as a mystery, but as HIS child. 


  1. Hey meredith- I'm very excited about your blog. What friend would ever call you a mystery? I bet whoever it was just meant that you were quiet and probably wished she could be more like you. Probably. :)

  7. Hey Meredith! I finally found your blog. I have apparently abandoned mine since I have not blogged in about 3 months... I wanted to let you know you blog has definitely touched my heart today. Your kind spirit shows all the time. I noticed that you had Hillsong on your playlist. Hillsong will be at the Basement on May 29th which is a Friday night if you are interested. I think we are going to try to get the youth band and a few others to go if you are interested. Tix are $15....
