If I Were, Take Two

Almost two years ago my cousin did this one Facebook and I did it here on my blog (see my original If I Were here). My near-and-dear friend, Joanne Sher, resurrected this last Friday and I think it's time for me to do this again, too.

If I were...

If I were a month, I’d be May, bursting with blooms after the rain.

If I were a day of the week, I’d be Sunday, relaxing with family after a soul-filling time of worship.

If I were a time of day, I’d be a moment of peace in the midst of the hustle.

If I were a planet, I’d be Saturn, wearing a halo. LoL.

If I were a sea animal, I’d be a Blue Tang like my animated hero Dory, encouraging people to just keep swimming.

If I were a direction, I’d be south with the palm trees.

If I were a piece of furniture, I'd be a rocking chair on the front porch.

If I were a liquid, I'd be lemonade, refreshing and sweetly tart.

If I were a gemstone, I'd be an opal, fire glistening from within.

If I were a tree, I’d be a palm tree sporting a hammock.

If I were a tool, I'd be a pen, writing my Owner's words.

If I were a flower, I'd be a dahlia, blooming where I was planted.

If I were a kind of weather, I’d be a gentle spring rain watering the earth.

If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a cello, mellow and deep.

If I were a color, I'd be rosey pink.

If I were an emotion, I’d be the peaceful glow from worship.

If I were a fruit, I’d be a grape, juicy and bursting with flavor.

If I were a sound, I’d be joyful praise to my Savior and Lord.

If I were an element, I’d be silver, refined to reflect my King.

If I were a car, a yellow VW bug with flowers painted on it.

If I were a food, I’d be chocolate chip cookies. 'nuf said.

If I were a place, I’d be a harbor cove.

If I were a fabric I'd be eyelet cotton. Comfy and cool.

If I were a taste, I’d be Mom's roast beef and gravy.

If I were a scent, I’d be fruity, not floral!

If I were an animal, I’d be a Golden Retriever, faithful and fun.

If I were an object, I'd be paper, waiting for words.

If I were a body part, I’d be fingers, ready and willing to work.

If I were a facial expression, I’d be a genuine smile.

If I were a pair of shoes, I’d be dancing shoes, fun with just a touch of sass.

What would you be?

  1. This is so beautiful, Patty! Mine would take some very serious thinking time, but what comes to mind the most is mountains, a majestic hawk, and the smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin, along with the peacefulness that comes when I think of all of them... Great post! Thanks for resurrecting it. ;-]

    1. Thanks, Shelley. This was really fun to do. I was surprised at how it made me really think, and even more surprised when I finished and read through it--it was ME in snippets. LoL.

      Hope you do it, too! =]


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
