Anna Nicole Smith

I came across Beth Moore's blog. I found it through someone else's blog. I really like her a lot. I think she is a very good writer and speaker. I added her link to my blog, it's a pretty neat blog. I was just on there, and she did a post about Anna Nicole Smith. I thought her perspective on her life and death very interesting. I was suprised by her death, but was one who admittedly was a little more judgemental about her life, and never gave it a second thought. I was watching "The View" this morning and Rosie was really on her soapbox about her death, and how people should take some responsibility for not stepping up and asking if she was okay. I mean clearly there was something wrong with the woman. Even before her son's death, you could tell she was just a little "absent" from this world. But those thoughts and comments really made me think about people in general. How often do we see someone who is evidently hurting or having problems and we do nothing? I think we all get so busy and we mean to check on them, but for lots of reasons (or excuses) we don't.

Whatever your opinions of Anna Nicole Smith were, she was God's child too. And I really say that with all seriousness. I have been known to use that expression sarcastically many times when trying to be "nice" towards someone. But really it's true, and obviously she was in some serious pain, and understandably so. Beth Moore asked the question, "why didn't I ever lift this woman up in prayer?" Wow! I never really thought about that. And I think it made me question my role as an influencing christian in this world a little more seriously. I don't know...I don't understand how people go through this life without hope, and without knowing a life with Christ. I mean I have Christ and some days I really struggle. So I can't imagine what it would be like without him.

It's so strange how you can read something or hear something in an important time in your life and it affects you in the way that it needs to. I have had a rough day. I've just been feeling a lot of feelings that I wish would just go away, so that I could move on. Well when they keep rearing their heads up it's really hard to ignore them, dang it!!! I got very angry, and felt and said some things that probably weren't very christian like. Everyone says, "you just need to feel the feelings." Well while that may be true, but for me and where I am at, I try to keep the anger at a minumum for many reasons. Well reading this, just got my attitude in check, and helped me get back to the place I need to be. I guess it's kind of odd that I could ever learn anything from Anna Nicole Smith, but I did. We are commanded to love one another, and I truly, truly believe that loving others is how we can show Christ to the others out there who need him in their weakest moment. And what a world this would be if we would all take that seriously.

I am glad that God is continuing to reveal Himself to you...even in unusual ways!! Thank you for also allowing what you are learning to be lessons for us-He is using you in more ways than you probably know. I continue to pray for you and your family! Blessings~
