Five Minute Friday: If You Met Me

It's Friday.

And I am taking 5 minutes. Just 5. To link up with other 5 Minute Friday-ers {is that a word? HA!}

5 Minute Friday is just that...taking 5 minutes just to share your heart, your thoughts, your world without over-editing or over-analyzing.

Oh yeah...and it's Saturday for me now...but oh well....that is what I love about this challenge....it's FULL of grace!

So here goes......this week's topic - If You Met Me


GO.

If you met me, you would probably notice how much I love to talk. But I do hope you would see past that. I would hope that you would see someone who wants to share who she is because I want you to know me....FOR REAL!

If you met me, I hope that you would see that I ask as many questions as I give answers, and that I listen...oh I TRY to listen...as much as I talk because I want to know YOU...FOR REAL.

If you met me, you would probably notice my red hair, most people do. And since I love to share openly, I would probably tell you that it took me a few times to get this exact "right" color.

If you met me, you would know a person with a big heart and open hands.

If you met me, I pray you would feel the room....the GREAT, BIG ROOM....to just BE YOU!

If you met me, I would want to spend MORE time with you than we would probably have because I just want to know you.

If you met me, you might, you just might, see that there are so many layers to this little missionary girl...like an onion....and that there is a longing there for you to take the time to peel back those layers.

If you met me, you would know that I love to be understood, more than anything, even if we disagree, and that I would try so DESPERATELy to give that same gift to you.

If you met me.....

STOP.

Won't you join me? I promise...it's never too late!
