Lines



When I was little, one of the things I always wanted and rarely got was paper without lines.

It wasn't like today, where most families have computer printers and stacks of printer paper handy. My family didn't have a typewriter at home, there was no reason for my mom to buy typing paper, except that I wanted it, so she didn't buy it.
Sketch pads were unheard of in my sheltered world.

I wanted to draw my own pictures. Yes, I had lots of coloring books, but I wanted to make my own lines.

 I didn't want to just color in what someone else had outlined for me.

Some things never change.

Being true to who God created me to be, instead of just blindly following all the "shoulds" and "ought tos"... instead of being who people want me to be.

We are who we are for a reason. The world needs every one of us to be true to our selves and it needs us all to give back using the gifts we're given. We don't have to make a huge world-wide impact, we just have to do what we can with what we have, and we have no idea how far the ripples from our actions will carry.
