Different … But The Same

You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  

If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Galatians 3:26-29

 

This week has been Drug Awareness Week at the boys’ school, and each day they’ve celebrated it in a fun way.  One day it was crazy socks, the next, they were allowed to wear hats, and today was sunglasses day.

 

Each day the boys expressed themselves in their own ways.  Chase wore Bobby’s Syracuse Orangeman socks the first day, a beanie/propeller cap the next, and really cool, Men In Black shades today.   And Carson was himself each day.  No crazy socks, no hats, no shades.

 

Today was picture day at school.  Carson had on a t-shirt. Chase wore a bottom down oxford.  Tomorrow is trunk or treat for their Cub Scout Pack.  Chase is going to be a turtle, not a teenage ninja, but a turtle, as in with a shell.  Carson is going as a regular kid.

 

My two little boys couldn’t be more different.  Chase can’t go two minutes without talking, Carson can go all day and never say two words.

 

But when I came into the kitchen tonight to do something, I looked out on the trampoline, and their they lie … side by side, chatting about life, the best of friends — brothers forever.

 

Their differences are what make them so unique, so special. 

 

I was at a Women of Faith conference a while back and there were about 20,000 women in that auditorium.  And some were black and some were white.  Some were old and some were young.  Some were rich and some were poor.  But boy, during those two days we had one thing in common — we were all loving on Jesus!

 

We were all different, we were all unique, but we were all sisters in the Lord!

 

Father, thank You that You made each of us different, special, unique in our own ways.  Thank You Lord that You have a plan for each of us and a purpose and it is to be Your witness to the world.  Thank You Father that we can all be so different, but when it comes down to what’s inside, we can have one thing in common, our love for You!  And thank You for giving me those two very special little boys, who are oh so different, yet oh so special!

I Love You Jesus. 

     In Your Name I Pray,

     Amen

God Bless You!
