Five Minute Friday

Happy New Year!

So many goals swirling in my brain. So many dreams wanting to take root. I see them. They give me hope that new things are wanting to break through. This new year I want to take time to hone the craft of writing. Five Minute Friday is a great place for me practice and be encouraged by other writers as I write. I will set the timer for five minutes and then write. Here we go! I am excited to invite you in, welcome.

‘Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. ‘

Psalms 90:12

Time is a gift and yet we live as if we can control it. There are many ways to measure time and we can not make a smidgen more. I have not wisely been numbering my days throughout life. Sometimes I even forget that my days will end and that I don’t get to extend them. Many decisions I’ve made and consequences I have to live with remind of that.
Recently, I have been counting down the years left with Sam. Last year, he turned 10 and he is fully embracing growing up. I, on the other hand, felt like I was punched in the gut when I realized he was now in the double digits and there was no turning back. I have 8 more years with him at home. I am praying that both he and I gain a heart of wisdom as we lean into the Lord’s teaching of numbering our days.

What is one way that you can see the Lord teaching you to number your days?

    My youngest of three graduates high school this year. It is hard to grasp his leaving the nest as well as the end of an era. I am holding both the grief of the impending end while holding hope for God’s work in a new season for both of us. Your FMF neighbor #61.
