Creatively Expressed

We're taking a quick break from our I AM series this week while I am speaking at a women's retreat.
Welcome back my friend and guest, Laurie Kinkaid. I love her impressions, brought through an artist's lens. Laurie's mind and heart are beautifully expressed through her creative ways of seeing life...

EXCELLENCE makes me cry.  Friends know that about me. Not-yet-friends learn it quickly.

Meanness angers me and self-assigned victimization just ticks me off, but EXCELLENCE in art, sports, music, engineering, most any field of worthy endeavor, makes me cry.

I’m getting better at keeping my tears in check (or wearing sunglasses) in public, but my visit to the exhibit of Marc Chagall’s works posed quite a challenge.

I AM the Light of the World

This week, we think about all that Jesus has done for us. I can't imagine what he went through. He saw His disciples scatter. He was betrayed by a friend. He was illegally tried under the cloak of darkness. And Good Friday, we remember His death on a cross.

My good friend, Pam Palagyi brings us Jesus's next I AM statement this week. He says, I AM the LIGHT. I am so glad she is my guest today.
