Hi my name is Belinda….. all introductions start of this way and then for me things become a bit unravelled.  We tend to tack on ‘what we do’ to our name – Hi I’m Belinda and I’m a …..and we fill in whatever we feel at that moment defines us.

One of the challenges that Peter has talked about is the idea – does his work define him?  Is being a vet at the core of his being, is that who he is?  Our society tends to make us think so.  He introduces himself – Hi I’m Peter – oh I’m a vet.  As if being a vet is the top priority in his life.    And though it may take up most of his time, and it is a prioirity it isn’t the top priority.

He is a child of God

A husband

A father

And a vet

Along with many other things

The top three are more defining roles – regardless of circumstances he will always be those things.

Can you recognise this situation in your own life?  I have.  When I write blurbs for myself to tack on the end of an article or talking engagement it seems to flow really well – Hi I’m Belinda, I’m a homeschool mum of 2.  You see  my homeschooling role has already diminished – it used to be 4 and one day there will be no children to homeschool.  Who will I be?

I will be me…. The woman God made me – just spending my days differently.

I am a child of God

I am a wife

I am a mum

Within that, at the moment, I homeschool, I keep house, I work at a business.

I wonder if you can join me and introduce yourself as who you really are?
