The rules are simple. Write for five minutes on the given prompt word. This week the word is When. Some weeks are easier to write on then others and some just as soon as you sit down and look. Some come after you start writing and you end up surprised where it took you. THAT is what makes it fun.
Words can be such a surprise.
Then you link up. And most importantly don't forget the step of being an encouragement to others. Encourage the person who linked up before. Takes but a couple minutes and why not be a blessing to others. :)
So all that said 3,2,1 GO
He started rhyming off words that rhyme with when such as then, hen, den, etc... and so I said...and when you get past that.
"Oh.. well When is a word that I use a lot. Like when I say Mom, when can I ______? Dad, when will I be allowed to ________?"
When is so often something pointed to in the future.
We want to know WHEN something will occur. And sometimes it's a worry. But as I write these words I'm drawn to remember the when's of the past.
When God so richly blessed me with not being in an accident.
When God gave my boy a reason to be thankful and therefore gave him a thing to be thankful for that stopped him from worrying.
When God moved in my heart to so something kind and unexpected.
When my hubby was sweet to me even when I didn't deserve it.
When my lad made my bed for me because I forgot to and he chose it to be his helpful thing of the day.
So I'm reminded that the when's in life aren't just a looking toward something, but also a looking back to something.
When can give us hope, fill us with remembrance, bring pain or help us look forward to a brighter future. Can be so filled with hope of a good thing, or the promise of a hard thing passed.
Depends so much on one's perspective doesn't it?
Lately I think on the song "when we all get to heaven... what a day of rejoicing that will be. When we all....See Jesus We'll sing and shout the victory."
Now isn't that a when worth looking at?
