I'm Not Normal.....

Hey there.    I just had to share this with you all....  I can't believe that I didn't come up with these words myself...

I'm not NORMAL, in NO WAY.  But, I love being who I am....   I like to think of my life as being FULL OF MYSTERY!  Even my SAM would agree with me. He says I live in my own world!  I'm always coming up with weird questions, he says!

I do dress normal!   Now, my eating habits are a little different...You see, I am the kind that orders a hamburger...CUT THE MEAT, AND OH YES, THE ONIONS AS WELL...
Just give me a regular ol' burger with cheese, tomato, pickles and mustard....and I am one happy camper.

Today, my word is Integrity......What exactly is Integrity?

The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.

Have you ever NOT been completely honest with yourself?  A time when your integrity fails you?  This is certainly not a trait that is very good to follow....but, it happens!

We must be conscious of our personal integrity.  It's a must that we unite what we say with what we do. It's a must that we excel in Honesty, and that we try to make the right decisions in everything that we do...How do we know if we are making the right decision?  We pray, and we seek God for direction.

Does God expect us to be perfect?  I don't believe so....we are human and as humans we make mistake.  I do believe that God expects us to be HONEST in all things. This also means when nobody else is looking!!  After all, we can not hide our dishonesty from God.  

If you don't have integrity, you have nothing. You can't buy it. You can have all the money in the world, but if you are not a moral and ethical person, you really have nothing.

Well, I'm glad you're not normal, Shug! Seems moral character used to be the norm, but not anymore! The world needs more Shugs! :)

Hi Girlie, Integrity, huh??? Interesting topic. Did you know that the word, integrity, stems from the Latin adjective, integer (whole/complete)???? In that context, integrity is the inner sense of 'wholeness' deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character...

Hopefully, I have integrity.. I've always tried to set a good example for those around me.

I love that little quote!! It could have been written for me!
Integrity...a quality I admire in others and hope others see in me.
Great post, Shug! Hope Sam is healing well after the surgery.
Take care and have a beautiful day!
