Time to link up with Lisa Jo Baker and the gang for 5 Minute Friday. For info on how we participate, visit Lisa’s information page on her blog.
The word prompt for this week is STORY.
We all have a story to tell.
Some are filled with happiness; some are filled with sorrow. Most are a mix of both.
I used to think that I wanted to erase so much of my past. Maybe if I ignored it, I could pretend that it didn’t happen. I made a lot of mistakes and did a lot of stupid things.
But then I realized through a lot of soul-searching that all of those things that I did; all of those things that happened to me and around me; everything made me who I am today. All of that “stuff” is my story. It makes me uniquely me.
So, my story began a long time ago and has a lot of curves in the road; there are hills and mountains; there are mistakes and there are glorious moments.
Little did I know that I’d end up here, in this place where I am today, thanks to everything that brought me here. How will my story end? I don’t know and don’t want to. Sometimes today’s story is challenging; the past three weeks have been very difficult chapters in my story. My husband was in the hospital and is still not 100% himself but he’s home and for that, I’m thankful.
God is good. He is the Guiding Light in my story. Even during the darkest days, He was there. I was lost; but now am found.
