Build (FMF)

Now is the time where I begin building my life.

I am a young adult; an age with many opportunities and decisions. Now is when I must decide what I am basing my life on. I have to choose which foundation. No longer can I do the “lowest common denominator” (remember those from fractions?). I can’t just do the basic things that fit into all 5 of my favoritest world views.

If I want to actually build something which my life, I must make sure my foundation is level and choose which blueprint to use. I have to start making decisions according to that philosophy. And when I do, people will start to know which blueprint I am using.

Am I building according to Humanism? Do I really think God is the only god? If I believe people need to know about Christ, how does the way I live my life support that?

Good thing I had to stop at 5 Minutes. The list of questions that swirls around my head can go on and on and get overwhelming. What questions do you ask yourself?

Dwell (FMF)

Terrorist attacks, holiday sales, gifts to buy, cards to write, refugees, riots, injustice, political debates…

Don’t we talk about this every year- the forgetting to slow and dwell and be grateful? Do we never learn? Never remember?

Maybe that is why we have thanksgiving every year instead of every big numbered anniversary (like the 400th year the pilgrims landed). Think about it.

In the daily list and media fed frenzy, I forget.
I forget to dwell.
I forget to enjoy the kiddos we have in our home while they are here.
I forget how precious the time the kiddos and I have together is.

So when I remember I slow down; restart. Remember to dwell with them. Live, laugh, read the same book over and over changing to a British accent because I cannot stand to listen to my own voice saying the same words over again.

I don’t dwell on my mistake of forgetting. That would be wasting the time I’ve been given to love them while they dwell in my life.

Now does anyone have any other tips for when a little kid wants you to read the same story again…and again…and again?

Five Minute Friday: Lost to be Found

Five minutes is not a lot of time (and I write slow).

My 5 minute free write: (and…GO!)

Find.

The word indicates lost, missing, separation.

How can you find something unless it was not there before? So when we were lost, but now we are found in God’s family, that means we were not always there. Forget the cutesy junk about us all being God’s children and how all humans will make it to heaven. If that were so, we would never need to be found. (We would have never been missing in the first place.)

But when we were rebels, running from the very best thing, running from the loving God who created us, He came to find us.
