If you met me... {5 minute friday}

I'm linking up with Lisa-jo for 5 minute Friday! The writing prompt is

if you met me...



Go!

If you met me you would see my heart almost immediately. If you didn't see at least that, you'd think I was quiet, shy or a snob. If you met me I might be apt to stand back and observe the situation before I spoke. You would see a quiet confidence until the topic of something I am passionate about came up. Then, suddenly, you'd see lights beaming, waters gushing, and words flowing with conviction.

If you met me, you'd know that I am passionate about being a mom, more passionate about being a wife, and even more passionate about Jesus Christ. You would see that I don't have pretenses. Plenty of inhibitions. But, something within this quiet, reserved, inhibited person is bold, rock solid and cannot be moved. That is what you'd see if you met me...just an ordinary girl with something extraordinary about her.

Stop.

  2. Dear Theresa,

    Yes, I can so relate to your post! I love how you write, "Then, suddenly, you'd see lights beaming, waters gushing, and words flowing with conviction", when you feel your heart stirred. And, yes, the extraordinary beauty within you, that you know is there! People couldn't help but see Him in you. Thank you!

  3. I can SO relate to this ... on just about every level -- the shy, the quiet confidence, the inhibitions, the passion ... all of it, yes. Beautifully written.
