Get Your Geek On

I was excited when my friend Paula Mowery informed me July 13 is National Geek Day.  Why? Believe it or not, I’m a big geek at heart!  I love science.  Always have.  I learned at an early age not to say “Yeah!” when the teacher passed out the Science books.  I also love science fiction, especially Star Trek.  And, I know what Leonard and Sheldon are talking about on The Big Bang Theory.  Believe me now?

Even though we may laugh at them, what kind of world would we have to today without geeks?  Below I have listed some famous ones:

Bill Gates-Founder of Microsoft

Albert Einstein-Theory of Relativity

Steven Spielberg-Film Director

Mary Shelly-Wrote Frankenstein.

Steve Jobs-Cofounder of Apple Computers

Marie Curie-Discovered the elements radium and polonium.

Ada Byron-First computer programmer

Michael Hart-Creator of the eBook.

And there’s many more. 

 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;…” (NIV) Jeremiah 1:5

I’ve got news for you.  God knew what He was doing when He created you the way He did.  And He doesn’t make mistakes.  So if He made you a geek, rejoice in it!!  I do!  And if God is happy with me, I don’t care what anybody else thinks!
