5 Minutes…If You Met Me…Today…The Andrea that God Built



Got five minutes? Let’s write. Let’s write in shades of real and true and unscripted.
Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Go leave some comment props for the five minuter who linked up before you.

It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week.

This weeks prompt: …if you met me.

If you met me today, you would find a woman of great resolve. Life has been life, doing what it does to a person. And there is a great deal that life has changed in this woman.

Recently there is white feathered through my hair and laugh lines etched about my green eyes and a deep furrow vertically between my eyebrows; my concentration path…my Thinking mark.

Friendly and gregarious, you would find an unconfident hostess, who is not yet comfortable with visitors in the house. The three  Dachshunds would be barking deafeningly, until you settled in and greeted them.

My home would be comfortably lived in, as you sat where you wanted and things might not be in place.  This, though, is that comfortable living I enjoy with my family, where books may be piled on the table with the mail, while the dog toys occupied the middle of the floor and a cat may be sitting on the end table by the window…

I would offer you coffee or water…usually all I have in the house and we would talk about God…because every conversation in this person, in this home, inevitably ends with glorifying God in all we do.

You would find HOPEannFaith; not only a psuedonym, but a way of life and an attitude of confidence in God…and you might find it a nice, comfortable place to visit. A place of peace to aspire to.

You would find me…Andrea…HOPEannFAITH…the woman God built. 😉 

Blessings Loves 😉 ♥

Author: Hopeannfaith

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

  1. After reading this, I feel like I know you just a little bit. And I’m pretty sure if I met you, I would really like you. 🙂

  2. Things That Show Me A God Exists
    Day and night always comes as it should, the seasons come as they should every time, when one of my kids was little, every time I sat down to eat, she would start crying (there had to be somebody up there laughing), the fact that I can feel pain because if I couldn’t, I might not know something is wrong, the fact that our bodies work for us in that whenever something goes wrong with the body, the first thing it does is try to fix the problem, the fact that we are close enough and far enough away from the sun that we don’t freeze or burn up, when my daughter was three years old, she was hit by a car and only had two layers of 12 stitches, the fact that doctors can’t make a human eye that can see, the fact that everyone is so different but we can go to college, learn, build things, fix things, and carry on conversations, childbirth, the fact that the animals know what to do to survive, without having to be told, the fact that three things go on in the mind when we laugh.

    Stop. OK, that’s my 5 minute friday for this Friday. Sorry it is posted so late-I’ve had quite a problem with a headache today.
