So thought I would do something different today and link up with Lisa Jo Baker and participate in her fun 5 minute Friday linkup. The instructions. Write for 5 minutes unedited without stopping on a topic. Today’s topic: AGAIN!
It’s 3:29 and I am sipping coffee AGAIN. Something about sipping coffee just makes my heart come alive. It’s really the whole coffee experience. The warmth of the mug. The smoothness of the taste. The buzz of people talking in the coffee shop.
AGAIN i chose to stop and savor this moment. To let it make me come alive. To laugh thinking about how about 15 minutes ago I was standing in the rain choosing to savor that moment. That hilarious moment when, walking downtown on a freezing rain kind of day I was really kind of skipping out the bank. Thankful AGAIN that I had a little bit of money to deposit in our ministries bank account. It may be a little but to me it represented ALOT. Alot of God’s provision, alot of my dreams coming true… alot of how God loves me.
While sortof walking through the rain with a spring in my step my keys slipped out of my hand and went down a sewer grate. Yep.. there it was AGAIN.. a crazy only happens to Jenn Hand kind of moment.
What to do.
hmm… laugh or cry? Get frustrated, or chose to come alive in the moment AGAIN.
So I decided to laugh.
To laugh at myself AGAIN.
To run to my car and grab a coat hanger and start fishing.
And while fishing my parking meter expired and got a parking ticket.
hahah.. savor the moment.
Because in Christ
I can chose to thrive again and again!
