The Birthday Tattoo!!

I did it!! Greg took me on my birthday for my new tattoo!!




Here I am at 36 with my first tattoo!! A 36 year old, Volvo driving, suburban mommy and wife - some might say this is one of my unpolitically correct moves -- but I LOVE IT!

There's a story behind this of course. I'm really tired of people being judged based on the outside. I have some really Godly friends that are inked all over....and just because they have tattoos they are preceived as being "less worthy of salvation"...hmmmm.....I have actually had a conversation with a friend who thought my tattoo was a sin....but then we talked, read the Bible and amazingly enough...not a sin! In fact, I think of my tattoo as a form of silent witness. Now, I haven't been to church since I did this so I'm sure there will be more to tell!!

We all just need to look at a person's heart and inside....not how they look on the outside!
