As I have posted earlier my oldest son is in Starkville, Ms for Soccer camp. My middle son was excited that he would be gone because it means he can go in Chandler's room and wear his stuff and sleep in his bed. Basically he has outwardly transformed himself into Chandler. Of course the clothes are a little big seeing as there are 9 years difference between the two but that does not matter to Carson he is just in heaven pretending that he is his older brother. As I ponder on the events of the last two days watching Carson I realize that really I am no different than he is. If I am really honest I would have to admit that there are people that sometimes I want to be. A skinny attractive person, a spiritually more mature person, a better mom, a better wife, a better friend, a better housekeeper, a better dresser. There are so many qualities that I wish I had that when I see someone that has just one of these qualities I am fooled quickly by the enemy into thinking that she must have all of the qualities that I desire. She must have it "all together". While I might be able to outwardly display some of the appearances and qualities of this "all together" woman I will never be her. Just as Carson is pretending to be Chandler he will always be Carson, uniquely made by the Father. These past few days have been a gentle reminder that I too am uniquely created by the God of the universe how dare I compare myself to anyone else. Do I think God makes mistakes? Absolutely not!!! He knew me before I was born and formed me in my mother's womb as He did all of us. I pray that I will ponder only on the truths of the bible and God's word and not the lies of the enemy.
