I EXIST!

I saw a license plate recently that made a big impact on me, it said “I Exist”. There are times when we all feel “invisible”, maybe that person more than most, I don’t know. Sometimes we play roles that disguise our real feelings because it’s easier to be invisible than to stand and loudly proclaim that “I Exist”, there’s less chance of getting hurt or embarrassed. When we were young we were able to pretend and the real “me” was invisible, others could only see the charactor I was playing! I loved to play teacher but since my playmate was 15 months older, SHE was always the teacher and I was the student, bummer! Then we would play “mother” and had pretend babies. My playmate always pretended that she had twins, always named Kimberly and Kimberly Dawn, don’t ask, I don’t know! I had one imaginary baby, always named Susie. I now have two grown children born ten years apart, definitely not twins! One day I went storming into the laundry room, in a hurry as usual and when I opened the door my grandson, then eight, was in the middle of a big fantasy with his action figures all lined up in front of him. I was going to just ignore him so that he wouldn’t be self-conscious, but he quickly turned around accusingly and said, “Why did you come in here? I had a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door”! I said, “Sorry, I didn’t see it!”  He put his hands on his hips and answered incredulously, “Well IT’S INVISIBLE!” No wonder I didn’t see it! How funny, it makes a point though for us as adults. We ASSUME that people know what we are thinking, know that we need help, know that we are in trouble, know that we are hurting to the core, know that we need a little extra word of kindness on occasions, and when we don’t GET those things that we are in need of, our feelings get hurt! We put out ‘invisible’ signals and when no one sees them we don’t understand why! Jeremiah 17:10 “The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out. But I, God, search the heart and examine the mind. I get to the heart of the human. I get to the root of things. I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be.”

God sees and knows our heart and our signs are not invisible to Him!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
