I know I am late - but I writing with Lisa-Jo & friends about Identity
for Five Minute Friday...
I am Erin- third born, home-schooled, church going my whole life.
When I moved from being a daughter in my parent’s home,
one of the biggest parts of me was changing drastically.
I am still the same daughter, but it is different.
I am Mrs. and I love that part of me. But that has not always been me.
I am mom to a team of tiny, energetic, smarty-pants kids.
That takes most of what I have every day.
But that will not always be. They will grow, my role as mom will morph.
I am a good cook,
but sometimes I put a bad meal (or none at all) on the table.
I love flowers & I love arranging them, but it’s okay if I don’t get much chance to do so.
I have bangs, but plan to grow them out (if I can muster the patience).
I love to wear heals & dresses, but most days I wear jeans & a t-shirt.
There is so much that is part of me. Most of it is forever changing, though.
So where does the heart of my identity rest?
In Jesus - from beginning to end.
Whatever may come.
I am His daughter. He formed me in my mother’s womb.
He had a perfect plan for me then.
He still does. He is still forming me.
I am His creation - in process.
That is who I am.
