Who am I?

quilting-1975.jpg

I’m a recovering business – administrator. 

Previously driven by all things productive, motivational and rewardable.

Currently driven by all things true, honest and pure.

Previously devoted to things to fill the void.

Currently devoted to nothing that serves myself.

Previously devoted to acceptance and admiration of others.

 Currently devoted to redeeming things others have passed by,

passed on, passed over or dismissed.

Life is too short to be plagued with worry, with fear and with

any sniff of doubt.

Life was made to be whole, complete and find it’s purpose in

redemption.

I’m a Wife.  I’m a Mom.  I’ve lived to be older than my Mother.

I understand the fragility of life.

I understand the permanence of kind words, actions and love

for those placed in our lives.

I live very far from perfection, but I am being perfected.

I live far very far from having it all, but I am supplied for.

I fight against wanting more and am learning to live with less.

I fight against judgement and am learning to live in awe of the gifts within others.

I fight for others on the things that matter.  I fight against things unseen.

I am a warrior.

I am wholly REPURPOSED.

    I read this when you posted it on Beth Moore’s blog and it has continued to resonate within me — mind if I share it with some ladies I’m doing a study with?

    I love what this says. I read it a few months ago and it has been sitting with me ever since. Just recently I thought about you constantly for a few days (three or four) and wanted to connect but failed and didn’t. The idea of repurposed is so beautiful. I love what this is all about. Keep going on this journey, pressing on because there is a prize!

    I recently gave a 45 min. talk using the idea of REPURPOSING and how the same thing can happen to our lives if we only surrender to the process! Thanks for thinking of me and letting me know…!

    If you knew my 2008 story, you would know that I’ve been “repurposing” for 8 months now. It’s still a struggle, sometimes… to remind myself that drastic change is okay.. because it’s scary! I love your writing!

    Wow! I have been in the same place as you have been, and faced the same kinds of dilemma’s.
    I used to work in the corporate world ( I’m a CPA) constantly stressed, trying to juggle family life ( I had a preschooler and a husband), trying to manage my professional life and my team).
    I finally decided I was not creating the home family life and the relationships with my daughter and my husband that I wanted. These I decided were my “BIG ROCKS”. I took a huge leap into the abyss of the unknown, quit my job 6 months ago, and I am now in the slow but rewarding process of creating what was really the most important things to me.
    I now have time to live and breathe.
    So I am so glad that I have found your blog, as I really can relate to it.

    I find myself in a similar place at fifty that you are now. Thank you so much for putting so many things well.

    Thanks madam I am going to try to buy a zipper pull at the store and see if that will fix my coat zipper. It is worth trying.
