It's Friday. Time to share my 5 minutes with the world. Time to just write without analysis and holding back. I just love this time of the week!
Join me on the ride, won't you??
Today I helped plan a wedding of one of my girls who has been like a spiritual "niece" for years. Her spiritual "mom" is my best friend. So today we spent the whole day shopping, planning, crafting preparing for her big day just 6 week away.
We jumped in and out of cars. We ran to the car through rainstorms. We laughed until are sides ached. We got elbow deep in Elmer's glue.
Why? A labor of love....to the girl whom we have loved so long.
Why? Because she is starting something....NEW!
And while we have been there when she graduated high school and college and fell in love, now we want to be a part of that special day where she says, "I DO" to THE ONE who holds her heart now forever and ever.
Sharing in the newness with one you love so much excites and thrills like no other....knowing that you get to see them transform into the next season, well, it's hard to put into words.
Tonight, it makes ME look at the world anew, with fresh eyes of faith, love, & grace. And really, doesn't everything seem possible through the eyes of love....
"Behold He makes all things new...."
......even me! ;-)
If you would like to share your 5 minutes, won't you let me know and hop on over to Lisa-Jo's place at The Gypsy Mama and join up with us word mavericks??
