This thing, being human, I model it all wrong for my children, sometimes. It’s a thing of beauty, miraculous, really, those few times that I get it right. But so often, I get it all wrong.
We’re only given this time. Right here. Right now. And lately, I find myself sighing. A lot.
Here, includes some heartache.
Now, includes some waiting.
I’m trying to remember, moment by moment, that it if I lean hard on the God who allows this. If I bury my nose in His book. If I don’t forget that He plopped me into this here 2013 for a reason…
Then, I can take a big breath and let out a deep sigh; and count this, now, for the joy that it is.
I’m linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker for her Five Minute Friday writing prompt. In her own words, “This is where a brave and beautiful bunch gather every week to find out what comes out when we all spend five minutes writing on the same topic and then sharing ‘em over here.” Click the button below to join us. Or, to take some time to read and be encouraged. You’ll be mighty glad you did. Promise!
