This week is for Sara – taking the prompt from her life’s commitment – to choose joy, no matter the circumstances.
Won’t you link up with us?
- 1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
- 2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
Go a little overboard encouraging the writer who linked up before you.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:
I usually don’t peek at post that Lisa writes until after I finish mine. I think it is a way to keep my mind focused on me, on what I am supposed to see or say about the prompt.
Today I couldn’t. I couldn’t focus or face the blank sheet of paper on my screen.
I kept thinking of Sara. A woman I don’t know personally, not in a face-to-face way. Though I’d like to think that I’ll recognize her beautiful smile someday.
But I think Sara would find that a blessing. For that is ,what I believe she strived for, what God blessed her with..this ability to accept what would cause others to shake their fist at God.
I can only echo the words of Lisa, when I sit here today and think about what joy could possibly be…
A chorus of welcome builds and when she sets sandy foot out onto the welcoming far shore a mighty cheer of joy shakes that place.
This week, I think I heard echoes of it already.
Joy is the welcoming arms of your Father on the side of the river called Home.
