Friday has arrived and with it Five Minute Friday! Linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker and friends as we write on a one word subject for five minutes each Friday. Grammar, punctuation, editing are of no concern in these five minutes. Just pure, real, transparent writing. Here goes!
This week’s word:
How can I possibly write about that word?
This was my honest first thought. Grateful is too big, too encompassing, too much for me to write about. Especially this week.
I’m not sure I’ve ever been more grateful than I am today.
I’ve watched God work in our lives this week. I’ve watched Him extend love and grace to us. I’ve watched Him hold our hands and hold our hearts. I’ve watched Him guide, bless and orchestrate circumstances that have put me in awe.
I am completely GRATEFUL to God today.
And grateful in (not necessarily for) the ups and downs this week:
–Two trips to the E.R.
–My son’s eye injury, and his soccer season coming to an abrupt and sad end.
–Two nights where all four of us were home together for the first time in weeks, maybe months.
–Finishing up a beautiful 30-week study of Matthew in Bible Study Fellowship.
–Receiving unexpected great news.
–Receiving unexpected sad news.
–Realizing we needed new tires on our vehicle. (Where’s this $$$ going to come from?)
–Being able to fit into clothes I wasn’t able to last summer (YAY)!
–My first gardening therapy of the season.
–Walking through one of the most challenging weeks as a mom.
I am rejoicing today, and thanking God with this grateful heart. I’m praising Him for Who He is and what He’s done. I would be absolutely nothing without Him.
GRATEFUL is the perfect word for me to write about today.
Thank you for journeying along with me on this path called life! Happy Grateful Friday, friends!
