Me

Welcome to my little piece of the blog world. Writing is a new found passion for me. Or maybe a God-found passion in me. I appreciate your interest and your time and I look forward to getting to know you better through what I hope will be relation and interaction with the words I can’t help but get out and down and eternalized here.

I belong to no one but my Savior, Jesus Christ.  I struggle daily with my selfish pride.
I love the security of my marriage and strong arms of my man.  I am fiercely independent and stubborn to a fault.
I feel complete as a mother of two. I long to have gang loads more children.
I love to cook for and serve others. I am ecstatic to be taken out for a nice meal.
I anxiously await the coolness of fall after a long, hot summer. I can’t wait for the rebirth of spring after a long, cold winter.
I could spend hours on end watching old black and white movies. I feel sick if I stay cooped up inside more than a day.
I am a realist. I am a dreamer.
I often talk to myself. I sometimes answer back.
I love a hot cup of coffee. And a cold glass of milk.
I’m proud of being a born and bred North Carolinian. I also feel like I was supposed to be born out west, 100 years ago.
I don’t mind manure on my boots and dirt on my hands (no nails to get it under). I can dress up with the best of ’em and enjoy an occasion to.
I can change a flat tire…on the side of a major interstate…alone. I would rather not.
I was born with arched feet fit for a ballerina. I wouldn’t know a plié if it bit me in the…foot.
I took piano lessons for five years. I cannot play chop sticks without music to read (and probably not well even with it.)
I spent too much of my young adulthood in places I should not have. I’ve spent much of my recent years wishing I hadn’t.

My life is full of paradoxes. And I’m full of sin and struggles. But I’m redeemed. Forgiven. Saved. And I look forward to continuing to work out my faith a bit more through this blog. Thank you for indulging me.

Graciously,

Meredith

  1. This is a beautiful little blog! I love your words, your reason and the unyielding honesty on these pages. I just found you–when you were the first to LIKE my FB page…of a blog that is not in ‘live’ action until tomorrow afternoon! So, thank you for liking my Happily Whole FB page…and you can be sure I will be following you right back. (I also notice you have a little in common with me according to this bio page about yourself..stubborn, mother of 2, likes to get my hands dirty and also go out for a lovely dinner ;-)!…oh and members of Compel.
    Best of luck and many, many blessings to you!

    • Yay! Thanks for finding and commenting on “me.” 🙂 So glad to find another blogging sister. Your fb page is beautiful. 😀 Of course I appreciate the follow and am realizing how much work it takes to get noticed and share these words God gives us to inspire and encourage. All in His time, His will and His way. Look forward to growing together! Hugs new friend.
