How am I known?

How am I known?  What do others see when they look at my life?  

Do they see a woman in love with life?  Someone willing to serve those I love...  laying down my life for Him?  Does joy and love flow from me and touch my husband and children?  Does it reach those I come in contact with daily?   

When little ones run up, do they see a smile on my lips?  Do they see love in my eyes?  Do they know gentleness in my touch? Are words of kindness on my tongue?  

How am I known?

Or do they sadly question? Do they stand in frustration because of me? Do they question what or whom I am serving... do they wonder what I love... do they wonder where my joy is? 

What do they see when they look in my eyes?

How am I known?  What do those I love see when they look at my life?

Can they see Him?  Can they see His love... His life poured out through me for them?  
Do I have a heart of gratitude that radiates from my face, my heart?  Do they know how much I love and appreciate them?

Is my life full of thanksgiving?

Is my life a reflection of Him?
Thou will shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.  Psalm 16:11

Thank you, Father...  You are good.


  1. Your life radiates joy and love, not only for Him but for all else you come in contact with. We are blessed by who you are! I am so proud of you my girl.

  2. Oh my - that was a challenging, lovely post! I often think these things when I am with my friends who don't know the Lord - how much do they really see of Christ in me?

    I had your blog bookmarked from yonks ago and just found you again. I have enjoyed stopping in.
    God Bless!

  3. Beautifully and gracefully written, Carrie. I love who you are... your life, what I know of you so far, speaks of who he is. Makes me think... I hope I can say the same for myself.
