SOGWEAW mascot

Oscar, our SOGWEAW mascot
For those of you who don't know, SOGWEAW consists of women in the workplace who send emails to each other and sometimes end up having e-conversations via email on company time. We promise we keep this correspondance to a bare minimum when possible (yeah right!) Oscar is our official mascot as deemed by Ally Joy at the KAIROS planning meeting. Our little friend the caterpillar turned kamikaze on us when he suddenly leapt several feet from the deck railing onto the the deck floor (and several feet in caterpillar terms is potentially fatal). Luckily our hero made it, and hence was dubbed, our mascot. So there you go.Posted by Hello

When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin." I'm whispering "I was lost," Now I'm found and forgiven.
When I say..."I am a Christian" I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need CHRIST 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 need HIS strength to carry on.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not claiming to be perfect, My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I still feel the sting of pain, I have my share of heartaches So I call upon His name.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow.
