5 mins of writing on a set topic.
I’ve decided that if I ever wanted to do more writing….and to really get serious about it then I need to be able to just write. Simply write. So I’m going to join some friends linking up at Lisa-Jo’s blog and we shall see what fun ensues…..
‘Hi. I’m Fiona. As in Shrek. But I’m no Princess’. Has been a common opening line for me.
Fiona. It is an ok name. I could take it or leave it. It means ‘fair one’. Apparently my Dad chose it for me. I never really liked it growing up, but no biggie. If I’d been a boy I would have been named Luke. I was a surprise in more ways than one, my parents so generously tell me. 😉
Now my middle name, that’s the one I love.
Charis. Fiona Charis Brown. That’s me. It is greek for grace. It comes from the same derivative as charismatic and charisma. Sounds the same too.
I love meanings of names and when we named our boys we took into account what their meanings are more than how the names sounded, or what the initials spelled out or what the name could be shortened to.
Nathanael – gift of God
Luka – bringer of light
Asher – blessed, happy.
One of my many hopes and prayers for my boys is that they live up to their names. That God is honoured in and through their lives. Just like for me and Charis. I have a constant reminder of what I’m about – who I am – is all about Him. All about grace.
I’m so grateful for the grace in my life. i want to be graceful in all I do.
May my life ever be an outpouring of grace to others, for all that the Lord has done for us, and will do for us.
