There are very few things in life that it are more impressive than to see people who are consistent. They are the faithful, the dependable, the people who show up. At one church the hubs and I attended there was a man that we dubbed "dependable Donald". He was there every time there was a meeting of the church and he was on time. He was a devoted Sunday school teacher and friend.
Then, there are people like me. People who want to be consistent but sometimes are inconsistent. People like me run late for appointments and meetings. We have the best intentions, but somehow things get lost in the shuffle.
It reminds me of the liquid soap I made from a recipe on Pinterest. I went by the recipe, but the consistency of the soap lacks a lot to be desired. In fact, the hubs hates it. The reason is because it has a consistency of new cuss and does not lather. I have to say I don't like it either and can hardly wait until we use up the rest of what is in the gallon milk jug in the cupboard.
Today I was thinking about that soap and how the hubs and I feel about it.the consistency is just not right to provide a positive experience in the tub or shower. My mind went to my life and how people feel when they experience me as a person. Am I the kind of person that leaves a memory of a good experience behind, or am I like that stringy soap that people cannot wait to get rid of. It's worth taking inventory. It's worth taking time in prayer to be sure that people can see Christ in me. In this new year I plan to be more consistent in everything that I do.I plan to walk more closely to the Lord and hopefully leave a legacy of love.
