She Wrote Back
If I could pick any of the blogging superstars to spend a day with it would be her, Miss E. We'd eat her mocha cupcakes, and craft away the hours spontaneously belting out ole country ballads. I'd pretend I was her fourth daughter and beg her to read to me, while I knit. She would repent over ever forsaking her gorgeous turquoise cabinets and I would pray about possibly repenting over my mild coveting, obsession of the turquoise cabinets. We'd laugh ourselves to tears and then I'd talk her into being a preacher.
It's true she had me at turquoise and I love her for those cabinets. But in truth that's only the cover page of why I join so many in celebrating Edie's birthday and holding her up in prayers. To me the above photo sums her up, she most beautifully and eloquently reaches up to grace. Her words and her life contained by keys and photos have pointed me up, up to Christ. This post is the heartbeat of my faith and this post the beacon that steered my heart back closer to Christ this Christmas.
She has hundreds of followers yet when I sent her an email, she wrote me back. She saw me, she blessed me.
Edie Wadsworth, I think your name is beautiful and I'm so glad you're Christ's and that He shines through you. Thank you for "seeing" me, for emailing me back, for appreciating my comments, for taking your valuable time to read my little ole blog. You'll never know how your gestures of kindness warmed up this little heart of mine. Happy Birthday, I O U.
437. For Edie
