I'm linking up with Lisa Jo Baker and Five Minute Friday. Lisa encourages us with a prompt and the directive to write for five minutes and five minutes only. No editing, no worrying, no research. Just write!
Today's prompt: Story
Our family story began almost 7 years ago. No, that's not true, it began long before that. My husband and I began our story together long before we ever met. God was writing our family story since each of us was born.
Or I could go back even further. Our parents story gave birth to our own, and their parents before them.
Our stories are not only our own, but a page in the book of our ancestors and our descendants.
I want my great-great-grandchildren to look back at my families chapter in our generational book at see our story so intertwined with God's word that they know we were a family that could let go and allow the great author to pen our days.
I so often want to grab hold and write my own story only to find God's story is so much better. The ending will be so much sweeter and journey (although not problem free) more full of joy and sacred tears than if I scribbled it out myself.
At the end of my story, I want others to see who the author was. I want it to be clear and show boldly of His love and creativity.
