I Am From...

I am from...generations of solid Christians, Baptist ministers, deacons, Sunday School teachers.

I am from...the days of Black & White TV, 3 channels, manually adjusting vertical lines and putting tin foil on the rabbit ears to try to get rid of snow in the picture.

I am from...I Love Lucy, Captain Kangaroo, Looney Tunes cartoons.

I am from...Campbell's chicken noodle soup, popcorn, and iced tea.

I am from...the whirrr of the sewing machine, cigarette smoke, cups of coffee and soap operas on quiet afternoons.

I am from...Nancy Drew, children's mysteries, Victoria Holt and the classics.

I am from...Krispy Kreme Donuts, hard work as a waitress at an early age, and working harder because you were family.

I am from...summer days at the lake, running barefoot in the grass, hot dogs, watermelon and sparklers.

I am from...doctor visits, surgery, medicine every day, fear.

I am from...Vick's Vapor Rub on my chest, mustard poultices, aspirin for colds.

I am from...Barbie dolls, books, and dress up.

I am from...a wonderful family, lots of love, lots of time, lots of teaching.

I am from...insecurities that came from nowhere, fear that was based on nothing, nervousness that agitated me for no reason, shyness that held me back.

I am from...church, Sunday School, Bible teaching, Vacation Bible School.

I am a sinner saved by grace.

I am a Christian.
