I’m joining Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. Today’s word prompt is beautiful. I have five minutes to write with no editing.
My Fourth of July wrapped up by sitting gathered around a piano in a room full of people who are dear to me. Ages ranged from 2 to 91. I watched the faces of precious ones, who I’ve known since they were infants, sing, dance, laugh, and worship God with their gifts. I saw joy and adulation on the faces of their parents. I shared in the joy as well. I have a fierce love for these wonderful people, and once every couple of years isn’t enough time to catch up. Many miles separate us.
Some say time is a thief, that it runs too quickly stealing precious moments and youth. However, we can choose to look at time from a different eye. We can enjoy each precious moment with reverence knowing it won’t last and thank Jesus for the beautiful moments we experience. And then we can arrest it. We can lock it up in the memory bank of our minds remembering each piece of joy which came from simply being together.
Time can also be deemed beautiful…
Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
