Imagination - what do you think of when you see these pictures?

I always wondered what it would be like to sail around the world in the 1700's. I always wondered what it would be like to be an astronaut or a submarine sailor (with windows - it has to have windows). How about living in the mountains like in the old west. Or being in Alaska with the days and nights are so long at different parts of the year. And then there is Tibet where the story of Shangri-La takes you where everything is peaceful and beautiful but you can never leave to go back home.

One of my favorites is to live by the sea in a shack, filled with shells and sand and washed up things from shipwrecks, with the ocean waves constantly singing to you. The I think of walking through a woods that I know, but I get turned around and coming across and old well that treasure has been dropped in by a stage coach thief.

Maybe your day dreams are different.  Making a real tree house, or swimming with killer whales.  How about going to New York and working on the stage!  Or be a professional fisherman! Or designing a very unique, (weird), building for all to enjoy!

All these ideas and more are dreams of adventure. It is said that if you can imagine it you can do it.
But you know it doesn't just happened.  You have to make it a goal in life and learn all there is to learn about how to make it happen, and act on that information.

You have your dreams, special monsters, sweet animals, worlds unknown to explore. In the end it is fun to live in an imaginary world. And no matter what happens Jesus is an friend that that is real. He gives us courage and dreams.  Life with Jesus is a great adventure!

When you read the Ninth Region books, notice that Vincent he speaks up for others. 
When you stand up for others may mock you and say you are not cool.  But Jesus promised that He has your back; He is with you always.  

The key is to stand up out of love for others, to right wrongs where you can, tell the truth, and always ask God to help you tune out the mocking voices around you; to always be able to hear Him. 

You are enough and you are never alone.

Someone asked how to buy my books. Google D.Scozzari or The Ninth Region to buy my books or go to Katy Budget Books on July 25 for a signed copy!  My book signing is from 1PM to 3PM. 
There is a great book written by Max Lucado called You Are Special.  The last page says, "Remember you are special because I made you.  And I don't make mistakes."

The Bible says in Psalm 139:13-14 "For Thou didst from my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Thy works"

I say: God made us. God loves us. God does not make mistakes!
You are all you need to be.  God gave you all the tools to be who you were meant to be.  Open your mind and hearts to His love and you will be strong in yourself through God. You will be guided to be who God made you to be. You were made special and God loves you!
