Kate said, “WHO.”
Good word prompt for a five minute write especially after working weeks and weeks on our family memoir with my sister. WHO, happens to be celebrating her birthday today! Happy and blessed day, Sestra.
There are so many WHO’s in my story. Those WHO influenced my life greatly.
Number one in that group would be my Grandma Emily. She was the one WHO had the boldness and the love to set me straight as a 33-year old newly single Mom in a relationship.
On her death bed in a Charlotte, North Carolina, hospital she told me straight.
My prayers were like sounding brass on a ceiling of solid metal.
She was right, you know?
She loved me with TRUTH.
She loved me with Jesus’ kind of love. He didn’t just love people and left them to their own wiles. He loved them enough to send them away healed and whole.
Go, and sin no more.
Go, and tell no one.
Go, you are healed and your sins forgiven you.
Jesus, was THAT kind of Truth-teller.
The kind I want to be.
WHO is your WHO?
