It’s Friday morning and time to meet up with Lisa-Jo Baker — Tales of a Gypsy Mama, who spreads a feast before us consisting of a challenge:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
Today’s word is STORY, and here’s my best five minutes . . . .
How many times has someone said to you, “Have I got a STORY to tell!”
And you’re reaction may have been, “Oh, no, here we go again!”
But think about it — we’ve all got stories to tell. We just don’t always preface our stories with such an announcement.
As I thought about Lisa-Jo’s word for today, I began to think about my story. Well, actually that would be STORIES!
There are my mamahood stories. Then my single parenting stories after the divorce stories.
My stories about working as a legal secretary for some 30 plus years. Oh, all the soccer, T-ball, swimming, football stories.
And the stories of finding Mr. Right and marrying him, and now the stories of our glorious almost 31 years together. In between all of that, the stories of our children’s marriages, grandchildren, and now great-grandchildren.
That’s a lot of stories!
But there’s one story so much more important than all of these . . . . it’s the story of a loving Father who looked down on His creation and saw people who needed Him and His loving grace. The Father who gave us His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our salvation.
Now, that’s a STORY!
