It is almost Friday - and with that, another weekend; and another opportunity to link up with Kate for Five Minute Friday at http://katemotaung.com/ to write for only five minutes on a single word prompt!
Tonight's word is:
The Velveteen Rabbit
There are many times I have wanted to ask myself, "What is real about me"; am I putting on a front and pretending to be someone that I am not? Am I the person I think I am? Do others perceive who I am; or are they just seeing the me I want them to see?
Am I one who "breaks easily", or has "sharp edges"; and perhaps won't become real at all?
Have I become real, or am I still becoming real; still trying to figure out who the real me is?
Have I been loved so much that my hair is falling out, or my eyes dropped out; am I "loose in the joints and very shabby"?
Well, I am not sure if I am real or not;
What I do know is that I am who I am...
and those who do know me - the real me -
Love me for who I am; and they understand me...
whether I have "become real", or I am still becoming!
And after all is becoming real what matters?
Will becoming real make me the person God is shaping me to be?
He is the One who really matters; He is the One is still working on me!
And once I have become real, I will never be unreal again; I will live forever in a special place God has prepared for me...
for all of us!
And "it lasts for always!"
