Every Friday Lisa Jo Baker gives a prompt and many bloggers like myself take that prompt and write for just five minutes. It is a wonderful community and if you blog I encourage you to try it. Writing for five minutes is the perfect way for me to ease back into blogging after an very unexpected gap of three weeks. In that three weeks much has happened, mostly illness, Easter, and company. But also, my sweet sister-in-law started her own blog. Anyway, today's prompt is After! And here I go:
After illness. After the exhaustion of caring for sick little ones. After the whole house seems to be falling apart. How do I pick up the pieces? How do I care for us all better so one virus doesn't seem to make me lose three weeks.
After Easter. After my Lord Jesus died. How did they pick up the pieces? Life had changed forever, in a way so much more significantly than the illness at my house. Jesus died for sins, rose from the dead, and sent the Holy Spirit. And the early believers transitioned from Judaism to Christianity.
So how do I keep my eyes focused on Him who I cannot see? Instead of on earthly things like the messes and to dos? And know when to quit doing when the work never ends? I don't know. Maybe we can figure it out together.
And my five minutes are up.
