I am fast approaching the end of my third decade. On December 18th I will be thirty years old. Now I can safely say that I am one of “those people” who can begin sentences with “I remember twenty years ago when…”. The last ten years of my life have been a remarkable journey with Jesus. I am dedicating this blog to that journey and taking a look at the changes that have taken place in my life since then. Ten years ago:

1)  MXPX was my favorite band. Now I can honestly say that their music resembles noisy muppets.

2)  I attended a non-charismatic mega-church with a lot of wealthy Southern people. I am now a member of a small spirit-filled ministry in a small town in Minnesota.

3)  I was filling out applications to attend college. I still have not finished that degree.

4)  I didn’t know who I was and tried to find my identity in a romantic relationship. Now, I find my identity in the love of God and the destiny the Father speaks over my life.

5)  I thought tattoos on boys were hot.  Now I think they are ridiculous.

6)  I had a short “dharma” cut (made famous by Dharma from the tv show “Dharma and Greg”). I now have long “er” hair that is desperate need of the scissors.

7)  I had no money. Some things never change. I think I am now back to the same salary I was receiving when I was 20.

8)  I was working as a pre-school teacher at an inner city Christian school. I now work at a small-town law office as a secretary.

9)  I co-owned a house with a boy. I now rent a room in a house with three other women.

10)  I basically thought my dreams of being in ministry were over. I am having those dreams fulfilled right now as a member of the Firestarters.

Thank you Jesus… especially for changing my taste in music… errr just kidding… and for changing my taste in tattoos.

Advertisements is the greatest piece of internet ingenuity in history… literally.

I have had way too much fun with this today.
