I am . . .
The LOFT (Graphic by Kerry Messer ) is open again and I am well pleased about that; the LOFT encourages me to write, something I have been lax in doing all this year. This week’s topic about which to write is who am I. And the post begins. I am . . .
I am a rusher. I rush just about everything I do or think. Today’s Journey, of all things, is asking who am I. And what did I do as I began to read it? Yep. I rushed to read it, in fact as soon as I finish forming this sentence I am going to go back to it for I have yet to finish the reading as I rushed here to start writing this post.
Other than one who rushes I wear many hats: wife, mother, grandmother, step-mother/grandmother, Sunday School leader/teacher; sometimes runner, more often walker 🙂 ; active Curves member, which probably clues you in that I have a thing for fitness. Truth is I stay active because I like to eat. 🙂 And I like to cook; I try to keep things on the healthy side, most of the time. My hubby retired this year and we are still adjusting. Actually, we are flat-out giddy about 6 Saturdays a week! Our days are packed with back to back long-awaited to be done projects and GRANDS who keep us young with all manner of activities. It’s all good!
Still with all that, is that who I am? Am I, are any of us, the sum total of what we do? What happens when my doing is done? Who will I be then when what I do now I can do no more? Valid questions for pondering, huh? There is an answer.
Isaiah 43:1 But now this is what Adonai says,
he who created you, Ya‘akov,
he who formed you, Isra’el:
“Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you;
I am calling you by your name; you are mine. [source]
You are mine, says GOD. Could there be anything more identifying? Who’s I am determines who I am. That’s the cake! What I get to do with all the people I love is delicious icing!
So that’s about it. If by chance you have not read Our Story, check it out HERE.
