Here's the link to Kate's page for the FMF fun. I hope you'll read other posts. Each person's take on the prompt is so unique and wonderful!
After a month of silence in the writing of posts, I have too many thoughts in my head to settle down tonight. The prompt is MAIL. Well, last week I received the Five Minute Friday compilation that was gathered by Susan Shipe in the MAIL on my 35th birthday!!
|Happy 35th Birthday to me!!!!|
I keep papers. Birthday cards, love letters from the long-distance year of my husband and I in our dating/engagement period are all tucked into shoe boxes.
I have notes from my sisters, my mom, students, all encouraging me.
I love to encourage others. I love to send surprises in the MAIL. It's hard to surprise a person without their address, however, so I have to spoil it a bit for some of my online friends.
The anticipation can make the delivery that much greater.
This weekend I attended our women's retreat and served as the musician for our worship leader. It was challenging with a malfunctioning keyboard and a backup guitar which I had to rely on. (I've played piano since 1990 but only began guitar in 2000 to play worship songs.)
I'm pretty comfortable either way, but it's God who was in control.
|The Fabulous Five. Worship team is incomplete without sound and video, and our team had both!|
|These dear sisters were my cabin mates. We are aspiring to restore our souls monthly in a group for worship time!|
And? You know the "you've got MAIL" icon from our early internet days?
That's what God has for us daily!
He has an invitation for us. To come and worship at His feet.
That is what has been missing from my daily life. I'm praying, reading my Bible, teaching in a Christian school, but I was missing worship time.
And now that I've seen it, and He's shown me where I can carve out just ten minutes before my other tasks (after my first class), I am so delighted to be with Him!
*timer has gone off*
If you comment and it takes me almost a week to get back to you, please know I am not trying to ignore you. I have so little time with my family now that the weekends are pretty precious family time. I will try to respond on Mondays!!
Also, if you don't tell me your linkup number or your url, I may not be able to find your post on the prompt. Could you pretty please tell me one of those as well?
