Peculiar Treasures?! {My first blog! ; D }

Hey ya'll! {I dont really say that I just like the sound of it!}
This is my first blog and im super excited! I hope you guys enjoy it and continue to come and check up on me every once in awhile :)
So, we are going to be talking about what my heading ''Peculiar Treasures'' actually is. Do you know?

Well, if you guessed that it is probably in the Bible since Miss Emilee is a Jesus Freak you guessed right. :) Now, bear with me with all these translations and definitions please :)
 It comes from Exodus 19:5:

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all earth is mine. ~King James Version

 If you will listen obediently to what I say and keep my covenant, out of all peoples you'll be my special treasure. The whole Earth is mine to choose from, but you're special: a kingdom of priests, a holy nation.'  ~The Message

5Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be(A) my treasured possession among all peoples, for(B) all the earth is mine; ~English Standard Version

pe cul iar  2. particular; unique; special. 3. out of the ordinary; queer; odd; strange.
4. something belonging to one only, as a privilege.

treas ure 1. any person or thing considered valuable 2. to value greatly; cherish.

and special could has many different meanings, but these are my favorites....

spe cial 1. different from the others; distinctive; peculiar; or unique. 2.highly regarded and valued [a special friend]

Did any of those surprise you? To be honest...I just looked them up and who would have thought that peculiar would be considered special or belonging to one only? When I first heard ''Peculiar Treasures'' I only thought of it as crazy and wild. {I still kinda do}
I first heard of it in my favorite book series and I even have a peculiar treasure wall in my living room with pictures of my closest peculiar treasures.
So you might think it is wierd to be God's peculiar treasure, but I think it is the best thing I could ever be called if it includes belonging to one person: Jesus. He cherishes me, He accepts that im crazy and different from the others then He changes it into irrestible godliness.
If you think its wierd that I talk to the Maker of the universe than YOU are the one that really is crazy {sorry}.  I will be unique, a special friend, and belong to God over anything else I could ever be.
 You thought I was done? No way : P we have to have a little chat about the other part of the verse.
No one, I repeat NO ONE can keep ALL God's commandments, but you can try/do your best and never stop asking for forgiveness. Obey His voice....Come to Him...Please talk with my best friend tonight/today for me. His name is Jesus. He doesn't have a cell phone, because when ever you talk or even think a prayer He hears you, because He is better than Verizon Wireless!!!! Plus, He's up all night anyway :)

Well, I will most likely check in tomorrow late in the afternoon or around this time. 
Tell me what you guys thought :) Thanks for reading.
