Would you still be my friend if I told you

That the reason my hair is long is because it's against our beliefs to cut it. 

That I don't wear pants/jeans. I also always wear a skirt (that I made) over my leggings while running. 

That I don't wear makeup or jewelry.

That I don't drink or use bad language.

That I cover my head with a scarf/veil while I pray, read the Bible or have Bible study.

That I don't celebrate most holidays.

That I don't make friends easily in person because when people look at the outside, they assume I'm going to "preach" at them or try to "convert" them, when in all reality, I just want a friend.

Now that you've read all of that, would you still be my friend even if we have different beliefs. BUT we shared other things in common like:

Eating healthy.
Playing tennis.
Indulging in comfort foods & goodies.
Drinking coffee/tea.
Playing video games.
Playing board games.
Listening to music.
Watching a good movie/show. 
Spending time with family.
Taking pictures.
Country music.
Going out to eat.
Being spontaneous & trying new things.
& much, much more.

And I have a huge list of things I want to do before I get too old to do them, but I won't add them now.

Yeah, what if I am that weird Christian girl?

This is who I am. Take it or leave it. (although I hope you don't leave) I've often wondered, why can't people be friends despite their differences? That's what makes us who we are. The world would be pretty boring if everyone lived, breathed, looked and acted the same.

Why do people judge a book by its cover and never attempt to look past the first page?

We all bleed red, don't we?


  1. I'll be your friend.... WAIT.... I'm a weird Christian girl too.... :D

  2. Haha yes, yes you are. But you can still be my friend. :-)

  3. We can be friends Fawn! I love your comments on my blog, and reading yours too. I would be curious about what your beliefs are if you cared to share. As a teacher I love to learn and its always interesting learning more about other cultures and even different customs within Christianity :-)

    1. Thanks! Your comment made me smile :-) This is something that is on my mind a lot because a lot of people are so closed minded to things that are different (mainly religion). Maybe it scares them.. Anyway, I'm glad there are still people out there who can use these differences as ways to learn and still be friends. :-) I hope all of that made made sense in my mind..haha


I enjoy hearing from everyone so please, leave a comment!
