A rose is still a rose by any other name...

And the rest of my lines are pretty lame.

"Music is my aeroplane."

"What I've got, you've got to get it put it in you."*

In case you don't recognize the last two quotes above, each one is a line from songs by Red Hot Chili Peppers, an alternative rock band from the 90s.

People have shared with me that their lyrics are random and make no sense to them. I suppose I can see that perspective for some. However these lines above make perfect sense to me.

Granted the official accompanying music videos are pretty wild. "Aeroplane" contains synchronized swimming which I was heavily involved with at the time of the filming of that particular video. There were a couple young women from our A team at the time who were asked to be in the video. I was younger at the time and not quite up to that level yet.

To be clear, Red Hot Chili Peppers is NOT a contemporary Christian band. Not even close. But that line above "What I've got you've got to get it put it in you"* has always spoken to me in ways that I don't believe Anthony Keidis ever intended.

Unlike most blog sites and other forms of social media, currently I am not attempting to sell you anything. Truth is I am not an entrepreneur, life coach, health and fitness trainer, hypnotherapist, or sales person of any kind. Do I daydream about working remotely and running a successful mobile online business that I could conduct from anywhere around the world? Absolutely! One hundred percent! But the truth is I prefer not to sell products, and there hasn't exactly been a high demand for my professional counseling services outside of my employment at a local school district.

However, the "gifts" I am most passionate about giving away [Give it away, give it away, give it away NOW]* are for FUN and for FREE! Unlike the Red Hot Chili Peppers, these giveaways actually are related to contemporary Christian songs for those who have ears to hear. 'What I got you've got to get it put it in you."

I am happy.

But not for the reasons popular culture values.

This is not where I belong.

A part of me deep down in the marrow of my bones has always sensed that since birth.

I've always known I was Jeremiah 1:5 and Esther 4:14 set apart. I just didn't know why. I didn't always understand my God-given purpose. Now I do. I may be able to walk and pray with you to help you find your purpose as well, if that is one of the Psalm 37:4 desires of your heart.

As I mentioned, this is not where I belong. Looking forward to meeting my Maker and Savior face-to-face according to His perfect timing when He calls me HOME. In the meantime, I will savor each and every precious moment I get to be alive in this temporary Earth suit enjoying quality time with loved ones, nature, beauty, tastes, fragrances, textures, music, peace, joy, faith, hope, and love. Every good and perfect James 1:17 gift that comes down from the Father of Lights, I will cherish and be quenched by the John 4:14 Living Water all the days of my life. The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want Psalm 23 reminds me that I have everything I need.
