Can you keep it real?
Here we go right.....Lynda is going to ramble some :) Kids are finally back to school ....YAY!! I'm back to the grind and my mind is turning a mile a minute. I received an email last night which was rather, needless to say, an attack on a small country . I'm not a social bug by any means and have found it quite comforting to keep to myself over the years. I would rather have a small group of really good friends than a bunch of slush. I keep it real and expect you to do the same. I know sometimes my outwardness can put you off but I'm going to tell you like it is. Thats me keeping it real :) Perhaps my level of deen is for some is....( under level). So that is the reason for this post.
Ive seen allot for my 38 years. I became a Muslim because God choose to show me his beauty through a dream. Which sent me on many years of searching for answers. I've lived in many places, met many people, and found the answers I was looking for....alhamdulilah! I lived in Gaza for almost 3 years and yes I have seen the Palestinian perspective. I've been doused with gasoline and used for target practice with lite matches. But God protected me and I didn't catch fire. Not to mention beat up and hit by a car. All for the sake of Allah and my religious choice.
Through it all I have been able to keep it real. When you meet me in person. I'm not going to bombard you with my life story unless you ask :) After that....you asked for it..lol The most important thing I have learned is that you can't be something your not. You can't take the Texan out of me and I don't plan on it anytime soon. My mouth goes afoul from time to time, You'll find me head banging to Megadeath in my kitchen and when a person needs me I'm there. Friends and family come first and I will do anything to see them happy. Even if its at my own personal sacrifice.
So I will continue to keep it real and my blog real. I will continue to have friends from all religions and I will still listen to ROCK MUSIC!
Much love to my REAL followers. and God Bless................................xxxx Lynda
