Picture Perfect

Good morning! 

I just have to ask.

Am I the only person that often finds  Facebook depressing? As I look at all the travels, holiday celebrations, family gatherings, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, and grandchildren, it saddens me. I never intended to fail. To be a loser at love. It just happened.  

Are all those people really that happy? That successful all the time? What’s wrong with me? Someone please offer me the truth!!!!

I want to be one of those people you find in a picture frame when you purchase a new frame. Beautiful. Inside and out. Successful. Loved by all. Happy. No worries. All exquisitely dressed in matching attire.

Can I just rent their life for one day to see what I need to do differently? To make my life picture perfect. You can rent a car, you can rent an apartment, you can rent a tux, why not rent a life?  A family without loss and dysfunction.  Where there’s nothing but love. Success. No drama.
I want to be a part of one of those families.  For just a day. As a learning experience. Then I want mine back.♡ To whip into shape. Each and every one of us. But I can’t.  I can only whip myself into shape.  And I don’t do such a good job of that. 😦 But I’m trying. We’re all right where God wants us to be. In the family He created.

I know no one’s perfect. I know not everybody is as transparent as I am. I know what we see is not always what it is. 

I’ve found the picture perfect family that I want to belong to. The body of Christ. 

Jesus always shows up on time at every holiday, every event.He can calm the seas so I know He can calm my family drama. If we just let Him. If we just invite Him in. He’s been there all along. 

This side of heaven we won’t be perfect.  None of us. Let’s all join together and love the family of God. All the brothers and sisters of every color, every political party, every gender. Now that’s picture perfect!   

the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.   Deuturonomy 31:6

Love and laughter, 

Sandy
