If you have not figured out that I will discuss almost anything, you are about to be shocked.  Everything is fair game when it comes to inspiring a post.  I NEVER reveal names--in order to keep my rear end out of trouble.  SO--if you are offended, sorry--but not sorry.  PLEASE just push the delete button or go to the next item in your daily reads.  This was too good to pass up.

Once upon a time, my #1 daughter, who was notorious for meddling, came across a photo similar to this in a hiding place.  HERE she came, "MOM, WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS?"  When I explained it was evidence of my latest colonoscopy, she was so offended.  I quickly pointed out if she had not been snooping where she was not supposed to go--she would have never seen it.  SO NO BLAME SHIFTING ---YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE!  Take that outrage and move on down the road.

Recently I was the driver and contact for a dear one who was having this fun procedure.  Never been there---well in short---it is not the procedure (LOVE those amnesia drugs--who wants to remember this!) but the prep which is the killer.  NOT FUN---BIG TIME--NOT FUN!  When I went to pick the party up, they had their own collection of images--all revealing what was found---or in this case not found.  THAT STARTED THE WHEELS TURNING!

There are all kinds of scans and tests in today's medical world which reveal all kinds of things about us.  BUT what if there was a test that would reveal the real us--from the inside out?  What if we could see the sin in our lives along with the good we have done.  What if our thoughts could be revealed in full color?  What if every moment of your life could be recorded on video for replay purposes?  Would we need to hide those images, for fear of what others would think if they found them?  Would the images reveal a life well lived or a life of waste and poor use of our gifts and resources?  If we could see the condition of our heart and soul, would we be satisfied with their condition or cringing in embarrassment?  How did I get here--when I figure out how my head works I will let you know.

BUT bottom line, there will come a day when we stand before God and see the replay of our lives.   I think we all are so focused on the gift of redemption that we forget there will be a day of judgment.  Yes, we can claim a home in eternity because of what Jesus did, but we also are told we will stand before the judgment seat of Christ.  That, My Friends, can be a daunting thought.  It is NEVER TOO LATE to make a turn and change our ways.  It is never too late--to change and do better.  In the meantime, are you an open book for all to see, or are you hiding images you would rather no one see?  BIG Question!

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ,

so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body,

whether good or evil."

II Corinthians 5:10


  1. These are eye-opening thoughts to ponder, Lulu. All the machines we have that can assess our physical well-being, but only God knows the health of our souls. Thanks for continued prayers for Danny - his MRI will be on Tuesday of this week.

  2. Praying for Danny---the medical world can seem to move at a creep!


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
