My Life As A Book

I was visiting Gina over at Writer...Interrupted and she had just written this great meme - so I thought I'd give it a try.

If your life was a book, what Genre would it be and why?

Fiction - but there is a love story weaved through it that goes unnoticed until the middle to end of the book

Would it be a stand alone or a series?

I think it could be a stand alone, but it would be a long novel.

What would the title of your life’s book be?

My first thought was Redeeming Love, but it's been used. It fits so well though...I'm going to have to come back to this one. I'm still not sure but I think this would work - Shadow of Light

What’s the spiritual theme of your book?

Learning to trust in a good Heavenly Father. Trusting that He loves unconditionally and He desires His best for me.

What would your goal be?

To feel safe, secure and loved.

What’s the motivation for your goal?

A series of painful events, losses and rejections in childhood that lead me to believe no one is trustworthy and that I am unlovable and unacceptable.

Who’s your hero?

My husband, who in the story would represent Christ.

What’s your conflict?

I haven't fully grasped that God loves me and accepts me in spite of the past. I leave my sin at the cross and keep picking up guilt and shame to carry with me.

Who’s your antagonist?

My family and myself...but mostly myself.

Where are you in your life’s book? (The beginning, middle, end, have you reached your black moment, are you into your resolution?)

Actually while there is still more to my life, more to learn etc... I could comfortably finish this book.

Is there a happy ending?

A resounding YES!! The Light has broken and with it brought freedom. The freedom to love, to trust, to believe in God's goodness toward me.

And now what is a Meme without a tag

I think it would be fun for all my blog friends to do this. So if your name is on the right column under blogging friends consider yourself tagged. Although everyone is invited to join in! :-)

Is it not just so special how the Lord takes us step by step through life always growing even if we do not see the growth.......but we can look back through the years and see the person we were then and the person we are today .. and if you are anything like me I am amazed at change in my life...
