Just For Today . . . Weird People . . .9/28/10

Dear Holy Friends,
As I packed my things to head home from the American Christian Fiction Writer's conference I didn't want the conference to end. I didn't want to say goodbye to all the friends I probably won't see again for a year- if I get to go next year. And my brain overflowed with information. Tim Downs had opened the event with a speech encouraging us all to enjoy being around other 'weird' people like us. Imagine, over 600 fiction writers in one place!
There is something to be said for hanging out with other 'weird' people like yourself! And aren't we Christians a bit weird too?
In His Grip, Chandra
Weird People
There's something different
    something others can see
        they may not understand
            weird people like you and me.
We have the same struggles
    some days hurt very deep
        but there's an inner peace
            even when life makes us weep
We get hurt, depressed, sad
    have to trudge through tough days
        but always there's a Savior
            guiding all of our ways
And in the moments of joy
    we look to heavens above
        and thank our heavenly Father
            for His mercy and love
No matter what life brings to us
    within our hearts we are free
        the Savior walks with us always
            weird people like you and me.
