I’ve never been one to do the expected. So instead of putting my best foot forward and wowing you with my wit and charm I thought I’d go with what I wouldn’t say at a party. Though it’s probably still all true.
I would definitely not tell you that I showered for the party. It’s probably the first time this week. Could that have something to do with these darlings?
I would not say that I’m often raw and sometimes brash and I tend to stick my foot in my mouth.
That I used to dislike people.
That I was a Muslim for a day.
I would definitely not tell you I’ve got five children because you’d think I was crazy and I’m really not that person. Or am I?
I’d probably withhold the fact that I’m a women’s ministry coach and worship leader, fearing I’d sound pompous and self centered. I’ve known too many people like that. But I’m no less passionate about Jesus.
Or the women’s ministry article I had published. I’d hide those facts, worrying that you’d grow tired of my enthusiasm for the art of story.
There are a great many things you might learn about me if it were a small party but if not you might only remember my smile.
I can be a woman of few words unless you get me by myself or email me.
Over coffee, or a long walk in the woods or a horse back ride we could talk for hours.
I think big, dream big and I love big words.
And if you ask if I’m done having kids I’d say, “Two kiddos was my hardest transition, after that, what’s five more?”
I hope you’ll stick around and not get lost at the party!
Mondays on the Facebook page are Muddy Mama where we share pictures and/or stories of the crazy things our kids get into like a bag of sugar on my kitchen floor. It’s a chance to know you’re not alone and an opportunity to come in with muddy boots, be real with each other and find the humor in our circumstances.
What’s New: I’m about to launch a weekly link up were we get Outside the Lines with our time with God and stop thinking inside the box when it comes to devotions. I am passionate about breaking chains of man’s expectation because I grew up in the church and I was a Pharisee.
