Become a fan of God

So the other day on Facebook I saw someone had become a fan of God. I don’t know why that struck me as odd. I didn’t click to join the person in his fandom. And then for two days I wondered if my immediate reluctance to join was a bad thing. I mean I like God, but becoming a “fan” belittles Him in a way. It’s like yeah I like God and Disney and the Dallas Stars and cupcakes. I’m not a fan of God, I’m a follower. I want my actions and words to reflect that. I want my life to be a light. I don’t want to judge or preach. I just want to live and let people see Him through me. I grew up with a different kind of God. An angry God. A God who held us over the fiery pit of hell and threatened to throw us in at any misstep. A God who didn’t understand humanity. (Silly really since He created us!)
Today is one of the holiest days of the year, and as I sit here writing I know, I’m definitely a fan of God, but I want to be more.
Happy Easter!

File the one under UGH

So today we went to play pool with some friends in town for Easter, and DD came up to play with us. Great fun. I had no idea she could play.
Also had no idea how to respond when she got hit on…twice.
