Six Word Memoir?!

Katie at Heart Gone Walking "tagged me for a six-word memoir meme. Started by Book Babie, it's based on the story that Hemingway once bet $10 that he could sum up his life in six words. His memoir: For Sale: baby shoes, never worn." Now does that mean he never had children? He was born a ginormous child and went straight into adult sized shoes? You decide. But for out intents and purposes here are the rules of the game:

1. Write your own six-word memoir.
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration, if you’d like.
3. Link to the person who tagged you and to the original post so it can be tracked as it travels across the blogosphere.
4 .Tag five more blogs with links.
5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

Six words. That's right, I whipped out the italics for that one. I mean business! :) I know you all will not disappoint! :)

So without further ado, my six word memoir:

Verbose sinner meets patient Savior = grace.

Now, I will insert here that rules including punctuation were not included in the original post, thus I found the use of the = , ; , ; , &, and - to be very helpful in my endeavors! :)

My runners up:
  • Idiosyncratic Rambler: loves words, mountains, laughter.
  • Christ Saved Sinner. Scared of Snakes.
  • Warning: prone to random laughing fits.
  • Happiness abounds when Christ is present.
  • How did the dog get that!?!
Okay, it's your turn! I tag Dawn at On Significance, Bridget at bridge in asia, Jen at lots of scotts and Krista at living inside hope.

Wow, I'm impressed! I took the entire weekend to come up with just a few. I knew yours would be really great and you didn't let me down. :)

I LOVE the warning one. So very Emily. I think your child will be born laughing.

Also, I have no idea what Hemingway's memoir means, too. Never a child? Too poor for shoes? Seriously, what does it mean?! :)
