Five Minute Fridays with Lisa Jo
I got to do this writing exercise/indulgence live with Lisa Jo and dozens more at Relevant last week. It was amazing!!!
|Five Minutes!!! with Lisa Jo|
If you love to write or would love to write, this is a great way to get started!
Today’s prompt is…
…that moment when you bowed your knees in the middle of a concrete shop building, on an old braided rug, your heart for God turning a garage into a sanctuary?
I caught that.
Remember when you came in late for Church 6 weeks in a row because your ministry to disabled children had you working Sundays? And you came to Church anyway?
I saw that, too.
Remember when brokenness and dead dreams forced difficult decisions and moved you to my end of the state?
And I only saw grace in you.
Remember when you helped your parents build an addition on their trailer – so much time given freely to the people you loved and honored though you were all grown up?
I noticed that, too.
The above are things I remember when I think back to my first impressions of my husband. He and I were mere acquaintances for the 6 years before we began dating, but I observed him from a distance and couldn’t help but notice his character. I treasure each memory that gave me a glimpse into the man I know so well today.
More of our story — for new readers and old who want to get to know us better — coming soon.
