Who am I?

I am not yet under the influence of Nyquil and I think I will steer clear of it entirely tonight. I am staying in a vacation home with dear friends tonight and sharing a space with my baby(ish) daughter. On that basis alone, perhaps it is best I not go into Vasoline Mode that is induced by Nyquil.

I saw Justin Bieber: Never Say Never today. Like my husband, I want to say “Yuck! Why did you drag me to that? Oh, my eyes! They are burning like acid mixed with lighter fluid! My ears…they are bleeding!!” But actually, I will likely own the movie when it comes out on DVD. My 3 year old knows that he is dating Selena Gomez. His story is interesting. He’s a neat kid. And he loves Jesus.  I was just thinking about how much praying they showed in the movie and how his mom ended a prayer “in Jesus’ name” just like we end ours.  And I thought about what that actually means. Sometimes when we say things too often or too automatically, we forget their meaning. Love you. How are you. Sorry. But I hope I never forget what it means to say “in Jesus’ name.”  In the name of Jesus.  “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17. Everything I do is because I am wearing His name. Because of Him. Because I am His.

In Jesus name,
