Five Minute Friday :: Perspective

"Though we see through a glass day we will see face to face."

Sometimes I have to remember that my life, what I see and hear and feel, is just a dim picture of what is really REAL, what it eternal.

In the fast pace of my mind and heart, I all-too-often-forget to remember that He is in every single thing.

In my gleeful childhood
In my angsty adolescence
In those formative college years
In the steps into adulthood
In the "hard" years, where I wanted to give up, give in, and just check out.

He was there, not only just drawing, calling, longing for me to come close to His heart, but also shaping my destiny and my future for something greater that I cannot see, something other-worldly.

It reminds me being a little girl and lying on my back on the rooftops in Haiti gazing up at the star-lit sky in amazement of how small I am and how large He is.

Every Friday, I join with Lisa-Jo, master word-weaver herself, and MANY other amazing word mavericks who throw caution to the wind and write for just 5 minutes, instructing the mind to just chill and for the heart and soul to take over. It is sort of a beautiful thing. Have you ever tried it? Please consider it this week....I promise once you get over the initial scary...something magically wonderful will happen to you on the inside....

So...join me??

Isn't God simply amazing! I would love to lie on rooftops in Haiti and star at the sky. On the farm in Nebraska my husband and/or kids and I would lay on the trampoline and watch the geese fly over head and stare at the stars at night. Now I enjoy the view from my deck. It does make one feel very, very tiny indeed. Have a wonderful day :)

that is cool you grew up in haiti!  my husband grew up in guatemala and misses living outside the states.

i have always loved looking at the stars too for the same reason - something about feeling small in wonder of Him that feels safe.
