my story - the edited version

edited (how could I not edit this one? :) 

Have you noticed I tend to edit my posts even after I've posted them? It's just what I do. I even have a "disclaimer" to that effect on my sidebar. If you read a post and come back later, chances are pretty good that you may notice it's been tweaked a bit since the last time you were here. Seems no matter how hard I try to wrap words tightly around my thoughts, I keep finding ways to do it better by saying less, or saying more, or saying something differently, etc. The beauty of that is the very reason I love blogging ... because this is my space and I can edit it as much as I want to - and in that process I get a better grip on what I believe. But given that freedom, and being the control freak that I am, I can get a bit obsessive trying so/too hard to "be perfect"

This place is where I share MYstory of HIStory. Essentially it's my testimony. I don't share everything here - but I share a lot and if you've read/followed my blog for any length of time, chances are you know me much better than I know you. The challenge, for me, is to keep it real because if I could manage to pull off "practically perfect" anywhere, it would be here (so tempting sometimes!)  

I once accepted a challenge to summarize my life story into six words. I thought it was gonna be tough but it wasn't so hard after all because - well because I believe I have a ReAlly good Editor and He's taken my story, much of which I've shared here and that's taken me 43 years so far to write - and, well - here....take a look. Can you believe what He's done with it?!:

Made perfect forever.  Being made holy.

I told you He is good! 

For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever 
those who are being made holy.

Hebrews 10:14

P.S. If you need a good editor as much as I do, talk to mine.
