It's amazing what you can learn from someone's email. In fact, I am a little envious of another Terri Brown that I can only assume has a similar email to mine, email@example.com. I have been receiving emails meant for her for years now. From these misdirected emails, I know that she regularly visits the dentist, drives a Mini Cooper, and is a medical coder by profession. She also lives in sunny Van Nuys, California, which in my mind kind of makes her a little cooler than me, since I can only reason that tan, skinny, beautiful, Mini Cooper-driving women with beautiful teeth live in Van Nuys, CA.
So now what if someone decided what kind of person I was based on my emails? Or my facebook posts? Or my tweets? Would they decide I was a person that loves God and really does try to follow Him, regardless of my weaknesses and shortcomings? Or would the shallow, selfish part of me that I try to fight come out and show its ugliness?
I heard a song this morning that has inspired me to greatness and I hope you'll listen to it and let it inspire you too. So this one's for you, Terri Brown of Van Nuys, CA, from Terri Brown, of Jacksonville, FL.
