Theme Thursday

This is a weekly meme hosted by Reading Between Pages.

This week's theme is BODY PARTS (Hands, feet, fingers, waist etc)


My THURSDAY THEME for Body Parts is here.

(From 'Treasuring Emma' by Kathleen Fuller)

That didn't make her feelings for him any different than when he left Middlefield. Physically he'd changed. He'd let his hair grow to his shoulders. His beard and mustache, facial hair forbidden for a single Amish man, showed he'd embraced the Yankee world fully. Yet one thing hadn't changed. His eyes. A golden hazel, the color of swirled honey. She remembered how easily they filled with emotion. Quick laughter. Frustration with his parents and the church. Sorrow on the day her father had died. She pressed her hand against her chest, forcing the sudden pain away.

That's mine. What's yours?

  1. Nice choice - sounds a bit sad though.

    Happy reading!

    I think it's beautiful. His face has changed, but his eyes are still the same--because many things about him have changed, but (let's hope!) not the love that can still bind the two of them together. (I'm guessing this snippet is from a love story!)

    Here is mine: Theme Thursday I hope you "injjoye" it, as the captcha suggests. (LOL!) =)

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
