I’d like to list it as a hobby:
Without worrying if it’s right or not.
And then linking arms with others who feel the same.
Over at Lisa-Jo’s.
Today, I’m joining others
As we write unabashedly
For five minutes time.
Without editing or backtracking
On one word alone:
Sometimes you meet someone who, no matter how brief, leaves an impression on your heart so deep, you just know…you’re a better person simply from knowing them.
My heart considers my great-grandmother. Her hands had seen more labor than most, but you wouldn’t have known it. She’d make sure of that… Once you touched her softened lines of life, you didn’t ever want to let go. She radiated Jesus and I am honored to have been able to sit at her feet.
I was captivated by my hubby the very first time I saw him (but don’t tell him that…he doesn’t need any more leverage). And every moment spent with him is a moment well spent. It’s been over 18 years of moments now and I can still say it without fail: He points me to Christ and offers to hold my hand along the way.
My list has grown twice its size in the last year alone. And still, no one replicates another.
I like to think with each impression, my heart gets closer to the shape it should be.
And when I think about you…YOU who is spending time with me right here right now, I can’t help but wonder…
No wonder Jesus loves you. No wonder He came down to shape hearts. Because look at you…beautiful you.
I can see why He cherishes you, friend. And it’s no wonder He suggested I do the same.
How about you? Whom do you cherish? Have you seen how He cherishes you lately? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
And one more thing I just have to share…
My friend Kris, whom I cherish dearly, has poured her heart into a book that could change your perspective on refinement…redemption…and the sacrifice Christ made for you on that cross.
If you would like to take Lent to the next level this year…if you see the refiners fire ahead and are hesitant to step in, please, don’t hesitate to check it out more DETAILS HERE.
