Unveiling Unraveling Undoing

I was tagged a while back by Warm Pie Happy Home to tell you six radom things or habits about myself. If you've been following, you know that it's become my "thing" to use these tags to be revealing... Here's something I know: Unveiling ourselves to loved ones can strengthen relationships, bring endearment. Here's six things that I don't know or that I am not: (like my little twist on the tag?)

1) I don't know if it's the unveiling that delights readers or the appearance of unraveling and I am not unraveling... at least not all the way off the spool. In fact, I've been accused on occassion of being too tightly wound. But today, let me loosen the links on that chain satan likes to tie me up with...

2) I don't like to talk about satan or revelations or the end of the world or the anti-christ. I think it freaks people out and makes us think of wierdo cults and I'm not in one of those... Just a sinner in front of a holy God... too scared sometimes... too weak sometimes... too worried about what other people might think... too ashamed to admit that I think I'm in over my head... that maybe I've let my blog be more consuming than my relationship with Him.

3) I don't know how to dance but I wish I did! S-o-m-e-d-a-y I WILL dance! In my heart, I dance all the time. But in my body, I'm too embarassed. Someday I want to dance for the Lord, like my mom did. In the shower I sign and sing... but only in the shower. But someday I'm going to take a worship sign language class because there's leaping in my heart when I sing to Him and my hands just have to DO something! Someday maybe my feet will follow.

4) I am not a bad mom and I will not lose my children and I will not be afraid of that any longer. Even though today my son yelled out to the kitchen, "My dad's outside"... "and he's got that lady from court with him"... And I experienced palpatations and ran up the stairs like a cowering puppy. But, you know what? It wasn't him and they weren't coming to my house and I stood there shaking my head at my own weakness. Silly me. Silly weak me.

5) I don't know if my son has lied to me today. I want to trust him but having been there myself, I'm wary. This business of raising children may just be the un-doing of me. I see myself in each one of them. 4 little mirrors. Perhaps that's why I'm suspicious... because I have acted suspiciously at this age and at that age and barely just before todays age. Oh, it's nearly an ache... my whole being wants to see them become Godly adults... And I have to be that in front of them. Un-doing! Here's a link to a great song about being undone (thank you, Phyllis).

6) I am not who I used to be and I will lift my head because He IS undoing me. Some would say, "Polly, you don't have to talk about what you used to be because God sees a new, clean you"... But I talk about that me because the new me is overflowingly happy! Being undone... unveiled... It's a gift!


  1. I think you are wonderful, Miss Polly. Love, Esther

  4. Polly my sweet, I love you. You are an encourager to all those who visit you and your faith in God strengthens mine. And isn't that we have been called to do? To encourage each other and proclaim the Good News? Love you, love you, love you!!


  5. Glad you like "my" song! I like yours too..that piano with the leaves on it is so neat!
    One of my goals for this new year is to grant grace to people I have been holding bad thoughts or even grudges on. It is sweet to think we can claim God's grace at any moment!

  7. Polly,

    You are so special. You are doing things with your words in this place. Annointed. Yep, that's the word.


  8. Hi Polly! Thank you so much for your sweet, kind and encouraging comment on my birthday post! It sure meant a lot to me and felt good to know I am not the only one who panics about it!

    It sounds like you are going through some hard time in your life! I am so sorry. I have been through some similar things. Just keep believing in yourself and knowing who you are :)

    Hugs and smiles,

  9. Hi Amy - no, the hardest times are behind me. This is about renewal and how healthy it is. Overflowing joy!! Blessings...Polly

  10. Polly, you are a special person, and after reading your post it proves my point. Have a happy weekend and blessings to you and yours. Linda

  11. Oh my...... the honesty in that post was so refreshing.... and it is a tough thing to type an open heart into the world where everyone will see........ God loves a humble and contrite heart.... You made Him smile today...

  12. Is there any truer song? The tears were inescapable as I watched the movie Amazing Grace and they come each time I listen to the song, but they are tears of great joy, not of sorrow. Thank you again Polly for baring your soul and touching so many of ours.......you are a dear!

  13. Polly, I just love reading your blog and your comments to me, your a funny gal! Yes, run to the movie store and rent some Austen movies for the weekend! Get out the good china and brew yourself a pot of tea and plate up some treats and enjoy!

    Seriously though, your post today was beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  14. Your post was beautiful and you have such a wonderful way that you express yourself.
