I was looking over my writing prompts from the past year, and I ran across an entry that I posted on Facebook. The prompt was to simply take the song titles from your music library and construct a bio from them. So here is my life according to my iPod…
Five hours following Four in the Morning I was born on Planet Earth. According to my mom, since I was Five Days Old I was Hard to Handle. Sure I had my fair share of Good Times, Bad Times, and sometimes I could be described as a Wild Flower, but I was hardly Notorious. I was never Brave and Crazy, nor was I a Desperado. I merely lived my life Somewhere in the Middle. But maybe I needed to Live Like We’re Dyin.
Sometime in my 20’s I found my life had Come Undone. If I had looked through a Crystal Ball I could have seen that the Angel who I gave All My Love to was really a Lil’ Devil. You know what they say, Some Fool’s Never Learn and I stuck around a little too long, but that’s Nobody’s Fault But Mine. After three years of his abuse, I found myself Good and Broken and so Dazed and Confused that I finally said, I Can’t Do This anymore. I asked my Sweet Soul Sister, to Be My Escape. She took me in, No Questions Asked so I said Goodbye and moved East to West (well, from Texas to Arizona). Living with her and her family was Healing Rain for my battered soul and I had Hope Now.
It was in Arizona that God sent me my Forever Love. When I met Ken, My Paper Heart was so fragile in its damaged state. I tried my best to Never Surrender, but I couldn’t help but falling Hand over Feet. The Truth is, my heart was saying This is Home. Eleven years later, our love is still Unbreakable, and sometimes Unpredictable. He still makes me feel like Cinderella and he is All I Really Want.
We have three, Beautiful, Beautiful children. Michaella, that Sweet Child O’ Mine has such a Beautiful Soul. Kendrick is Amazing and he’s always Keeping me Guessing. McKenzie is a Fast-Moving Train but I love Every Little Kiss that she gives me.
Early in our marriage, Between the Altar and the Door, I had a Revelation. All Because of Jesus, I received Amazing Grace Now I’m a Sister Christian! With God in Me, I have a Peaceful Easy Feeling and He Has Made Me Glad. Don’t get me wrong, I’m Not Perfect but I’m Not Who I Was.
So Friends, the challenge is on you. It is your turn to tell us all About You, about the Diverse City you live in, the Doodlebugs you love, and it’s time to dispel the Rumors in the Air. Fill the Space In Between Us with information about you, using the song titles in your music library. Does The Song Remain the Same? Is your life a Song of Hope or The Song of the Cebu?
