Yes, I am a Christian. No, I am NOT Perfect

Happy weekend everyone! I arrived last night from Davao City and I have been busy since then. It's exam week once again so I'm cramming with the test papers. What else is new right? So anyway, I am almost done with the test papers and my only concern left will be the grades so that I can distribute the cards by the end of this week. It's really going to be a hectic period starting next week. I have yet to plan for the graduation of the kids this March and aside from that, the kids will be having a presentation on February 20 where they will be dancing waltz and tango.

I saw this poem posted on the bulletin in friendster and I think this is worth sharing.


When I Say I am a Christian
by Carol s. Wimmer

When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting "I am saved"
I'm whispering "I was lost"
That is why I chose this way.
When I say..."I am a Christian"
I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble
And need someone to be my guide.
When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak
And pray for strength to carry on.
When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed
And cannot ever pay the debt.
When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are all too visible,
But God believes I'm worth it.
When I say..."I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartaches
Which is why I speak His name.
When I say..."I am a Christian"
I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority.
I only know I'm loved
