Who am I? Who are you?

Ready?

If you are in Christ

and Christ is in you

You are:

Chosen!

You are

a Royal Priesthood!

Holy!

Holy = good, pious, godly

Peculiar!

peculiar?!

6718_10152495605440136_299046675_n

What?! Let me take another look at that….

means “special”  or “set aside”  or “belonging to” in old English =]

So, you and I are a royal, holy, peculiar people set aside for and belonging to Christ!

IF we’re in Christ,

which we are,

so…

we are!

See?

“But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light…” ~ 1 Peter 2:9

Awesome!!!

Where’s your head?!

“He has lost connection with the Head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.” Colossian 2:1

“…we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.” ~ Ephesians 4:15

According to that verse up there in Ephesians, Christ is supposed to be my head.  But, sometimes lots of times, I don’t act like it.  I run around like a christian with my head cut off, like in the Colossians verse.  Know what I mean?

Now that’s just downright “Daffy”!

Mr. Meek MUST get a duck for his "thweetie pie" to cook for dinner. But Daffy's to quick. Whack, whack whack!

With ketchup and flying feathers, Daffy's going to fake his death!

Shhhh! Don't tell Mr. Meek.

Daffy runs around like a chicken -- er, duck, with its head cut off!

What has he done?! Poor Mr. Meek is horrified!

And so should we be, if we ever WE try to run through our days without Christ at the head!

Do you know what that means?!

It means you,  and everyone you know and love,  will be seeing a lot more of this:

“…anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language… sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.” (Colossians 3:5 and 8)

And a WHOLE lot less of this:

“…compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”  (Colossians 3:12)

Now, Christ is the head, no matter what, but we need to stop flip floppin’ around, stick our heads in the nearest Bible, read it, pray about it,  and do what it says.  That’s the only way to act like we’ve got HIS head on our shoulders!

P.S.  If you like Looney Toons and animation, in general, I recommend reading the blog post I stole borrowed Daffy Duck’s pics  from: The cute way to offend delicate sensibilites. The author goes into humorous detail about the art behind the humor, or is it vice versa?

A New Look!!

Didja notice?!  It’s all new here on Gloriadelia!

I just clicked my mouse a second ago and Voi la!  Schnazzy!

Oh, if only it were that easy for me!

I need new hair — click! Lose those wrinkles! — Click!

And what about my insides?  All those bad attitudes and hang-ups? Click! Click! Click! Click! Click! Done! Now I am perfect…sigh.

Well, here’s something I click on regularly that has changed my insides, steadily, steadily, day-by-day.

I’m talking about http://www.Bluletterbible.com.

The Bible online. (I know that’s a fragment, Lizzy (my daughter, the English nerd) in case you happen to be reading this, but sometimes fragments are more dramatic!)

Here, click on the pink link and take a gander yourself: Blueletterbible  (“gander” means “take a look”, in case any of you post-moderns happen to be reading this) (post-modern means…oh, forget it. Google!)

But you don’t have to click to grow, you can flip open the nearest Bible, and if you happen to do this every day, you will grOW!!

Reminds me of a catchy song kids would sing in Sunday School: 

“Read your Bible (their little hands are open in front of them like a book), pray every day (hands folded now in front)…pray every day…pray every day…Read your Bible (hands open again), pray every day, and you’ll grow (forgot to mention they start out squatted down, so now they start to stand), grow (stand a little higher), grow! (Jump!!).

“Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation…” 1 Peter 2:1

Teeth Whitening

TEETH WHITENING

I read that thin-lipped  women everywhere are paying big bucks to have Angelina Jolie lips.

Hmmm..  Her lips aren’t bad, I admit, but, for the money, I’d want her gleamy white teeth.

See what I mean?  My teeth used to white, back in the day, but these days they’re competing with my hair to see who can become gray the fastest.  sigh…   Hello, Middle age.

So, yesterday, I was pretty happy to be leaving my dentist’s office with my arm snugly wrapped around a shiny box of 21 little strips of magic.  Hello, Teeth Whitening!

I tried it out this morning.   One strip across the top, one across the bottom.

Yayyy…….ay?????!!!!! Gooey, sticky stuff oozed out the sides and into my mouth — Am I thuppothed  tha  thwallow thith thtuff?  Grossth!

The box said to leave on the strips for 30 minutes.  Thirty minutes is a looooonnnnng time when you’re drooling like Angelina Jolie’s dog.  (if she has one, and assuming it has big  lips, too).

I couldn’t stand it, so, after 20 minutes, out they came!  White-schmite!

I looked in the mirror — Hey!  Hello, white teeth!

Well, less gray, anyway.  Nice! 🙂

Now, don’tcha wish there was a strip we could apply to our insides, too;  something to kinda bleach out all the muck and mire in our hearts,  and leave behind shiny white goodness?  Oh, wait, we have something for that —  Jesus!

“Though your sins be as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”  Isaiah 1:18

Reminds me of that church song, “What can wash away my sins?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus… Oh, precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow…”

Stop! Drop! and Pray!

Let’s Pray:

Oh, Father, thank you for loving me and saving me out of the muck and mire.  You  brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And You set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. (Psalm 40:2)

I still seem to be drawn back to that pit, Father.  Daily it calls my name, so thank you for 1John 1:9. [It says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

So take a minute or two, or however long it takes, to confess your sins to God.  You can think of it as soul-whitening 🙂 ]

Thank you for forgiving me, Father, In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Do you know the One who made the snow?  Well, he’d love to say “Hello” to you!  Click the pic below for a quick introduction:
