Dramatic Drop in Gas Prices!!!

Things aren't always what they seem . . .

Yes, this sign I drove by the other day (actually I was STOPPED at a stop light!) did catch my eye, and it DID show a drop in price . . . but not the kind of drop that would show up at the pump or in my wallet.  Though my headline here may be misleading . . . it's still "somewhat" true . . . 

Life isn't always what it seems.  Have you ever looked at someone else's life and thought, "They have it all together."  "They really have the best job."  They really have a fully functional family!"

We've all done that.  And then . . . as time goes by, we realize that those situations aren't always what they seem.  Just like our own lives, those situations are not as perfect on the inside, as they sometimes appear on the outside.

When I turned 50, I decided that I would let myself live with imperfection more easily.  Imperfection in myself.  Am I running late?  It's not the end of the world.  Did I make a mistake?    The house won't fall down around me.  Did I say the wrong thing?  I'll get over it.  Perfection is usually a myth - kind of like the idea of dramatically dropping gas prices.  

So I'm growing up!  I realize that things aren't always as they seem.  Other people's lives aren't perfect, and mine isn't either.  I'm blessed and surrounded by God's good gifts.  I'm going to choose to live happily in the midst of the imperfection!
