Friday Five Five Adjectives for You

January Friday 5

“Love is the effort and desire to make someone else everything they were created to be.”  Tim Keller  This quote hangs next to my bed and it has shaped a fair amount of my choices.

Learner- I’m a hungry reader, yet rarely does fiction keep my attention.  I rarely take someone’s word for fact when discussion politics, science, scripture or health.  I love to read what others are learning about and to expound on their findings.

Loyal- We live a lifestyle that can be straining on friendships.  I’ve learned the hard way some who say the seek friendship actually seek information.  This has taught me the value of loyalty and I offer it openly.

Creative- I love to embroider, knit, crochet and write.  My creativity stretches past that.  I’ve always sought new and unique activities, restaurants and even toys for my boys.

Pensive- ministry has developed this side of me .  I dream big for my college girls, and I dream big for how God will use them.  It’s only in the past year I’ve begun to feel any freedom at all to dream.  I’ve begun to seek what God may have for my life and to hope it may be bigger than I’ve previously imagined.

Surrendered- Jennie Allen wrote a little book called Anything which has been wrecking lives for years 😉  Jennie and Zac’s example of what is looks like to dream big and to seek to live a surrendered life have been integral in our lives.  I’m not perfectly surrendered…I’m a work in progress.

I’m linking up for #FridayFive with Mrs. Disciple!

  1. I am absolutely adding Anything to my reading list. You keep bringing it up and your adjectives sealed the deal for me. I want to add “surrendered” to my list of adjectives I want to describe me. Thanks for linking up and letting me get to know you a little better! #FridayFive
