I’m linking up with Lisa Jo Baker over at Tales of a Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday. No overthinking or editing. Just write. For 5 minutes flat.
The first thing that springs to my mind is the Mini-series from the 70’s. I’m not sure why. I’ve always been fascinated with people who have a very clear people from whom they’ve descended.
It may seem very odd; but, I’m a mutt you see. A little bit English. A bigger bit German. A fair amount Italian. I’ve even been rumored to have 1/16th Cherokee Indian. And so, I don’t feel like I really have “a people”.
And yet, I do. And you do too. It’s a “people” based in the Truth of God’s Word. It’s a grafting in to The Root, no matter which family tree you’re coming from.
“ If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root,”
Romans 11:17 (NIV)
That gives me incredible comfort. It makes me feel like I belong. I think on that truth and I am certain that I do belong. To the only one who matters. And I am surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. And these are my people.
