Five Minute Friday: Remember

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.

    Trina! I love that what you're remembering isn't about you, it's about someone else. This was beautiful.
