Five Minute Friday - Waking Up

I am joining Lisa-Jo today for Five Minute Friday. She has chosen "Waking Up" as this week's topic.

Here goes:

I have been sleep-walking through the days - burdened by things that only He can change. I have prayed and friends have prayed. I have waited. I have longed to hear His voice.

I have known that He is near. This morning, though, He "spoke" in a way that brought tears. I know it was Him. It was so personal, so exactly to the point.

It isn't that life is suddenly in crises. It is just, perhaps, that the burdens feel a bit heavier than usual. Everything dims and life loses its bright beauty.

Today, we took the long way home from down - meandering down country roads, soaking in the scenery. We passed a field that was covered with pink Evening Primrose - my favorite wild flower - and suddenly I saw the world in technicolor. I saw His hand touching earth and knew in my heart that all would be well. A gentle nudging awake....

  1. Linda, I love what you wrote (o: and I enjoyed reading some of what other people wrote. I like the little blue 'leg cover' you are working on too.

  2. what a wonderful awakening ...

  3. Wonderful awakening! I wrote about a time God spoke clearly to me just yesterday. I think you'd enjoy the article. I'm so glad to see you have been married to your high school sweetheart for 44 years! I've been married to mine for 15 years now and I always love seeing others who have made it long term :) I look forward to reading more!

    Please feel free to stop by: Trailing After God

  4. And to know that He may have made those primroses bloom just for YOU is such a testimony. Visiting you via 5 min Fridays.
