One Thing.....

Yesterday I went to Bible study. I go every Wednesday. I'm really enjoying it too.

What else I'm really enjoying is being able to talk with the people in my group, which includes my brother. The teacher for our group is our Pastor. He's really a great person, very genuine, trust worthy and I feel he's a great teacher. Of course though, he's the Pastor!

Anyways, while we were talking though, our Pastor shared something about himself that I was completely blown away by. That's when I said "Wouldn't it be cool is we all shared one thing about ourselves that no one knows?" Well, at least not at the church. That got my Pastor thinking, "What a great idea!"

So, around Christmas time, we may have a Bible study Christmas party and we all add a little something about ourselves on a piece of paper and put it in a bowl and then everyone guesses.

In thinking about this, it got me thinking about who I am. I've never been one to analyze myself but this made me think about who I was and who I've become. Especially since I've been going to church. There has definitely been growth and things that I once would do, have done and I won't do now.

However, in thinking about this, I wondered what I would write? What would be interesting enough yet, respectable for church? Nothing over the top.

Then again, I'm not a wild child so....

I never did drugs, nor have I ever gotten arrested.

However (This is where the scandal starts...j/k), I have started semi-fights in several bars. I've had road rage (when I was in my early 20's) so I've actually thrown things (such as Lipton Tea bottles) out my window at another car. When I was 15, I called 911 on some teenage boys that mooned me and a friend of mine and I've been pulled over and literally had 5 cop cars pull over for my traffic stop (it was minor, just over exaggerated). I am afraid of heights but love rollercoasters.

Do these thing define me even though they are the past? Perhaps at the time they did. I'm not proud of the things I've done but I'm not that same person today though.

To share one thing about me though. Do I use present or past? Does it matter.

So, what should I write? What would you write?
