Getting "To The Point" ~ Like Maxine

This is the country girl in me talking ~ 'you kinda hafta watch Maxine.' I have seen a few of her cartoons that the language wasn't nice. But not so with this one.

A few weeks ago I received an email from a home schooling friend of mine with this cartoon included. She said that I came to mind when she saw it. She followed up with a second email to make sure that I didn't think that she was comparing my physical attributes to Maxine's ~ but rather this is something she might hear me say. But if you could have seen me all day today in my long purple robe ~ fighting "fibro flu pain" (it's not the real flu ~ you just feel like it is) ~ you might have agreed with her.

I do believe it is possible that I might make such a statement but I don't believe I would have said it to just anyone. It's easy when we are within our circle of Christian friends to boldly speak up ~ yet it is quite another to speak so candidly to those who do not believe in our God. May we ALL be as bold as a lion.

The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion
Proverbs 28:1

Very cute and thought provoking post. You got me on my soap box.

I have heard of Maxine too! She can use some very trying language at times. But, she does get directly to the point.
Thinking of you sister friend,

We were just speaking of this today, actually. I feel as if I have kind of gone to sleep on a limb of a tree and need to wake up from my cat nap. What a great verse to get our attention! "Bold as a lion" Praise the Lord for these words of encouragement. Hang in there with your fibro. I don´t know what it feels like but I have known some who do. Resting in Him! Love in Christ, Dani
