I did go to the Twitter Party last night and the gang was there – the host Kate Motaung – didn’t seem to be visible but she did come in just in time to say…
I saw the word last night and pondered 15 minutes or so and then fell asleep – but on one of my bathroom runs through the night it came to me. One thing about this Five Minute Friday exercise of taking one word and writing five minutes? I’ve learned my husband’s favorite little saying holds true, “Think Long? Thing Wrong!”
I’m going with the first thing Spirit said…somebody needs to hear it.
I had COPD of the heart and couldn’t BREATHE.
The love of my life had just said the words I honestly never thought I’d hear – the words no woman wants to hear.
There was someone else.
I fell to the ground, in this case a dirty dusty country road and I couldn’t breathe.
I was barely out of the maternity clothes I had worn the past many months – the birth of our surprise child, number three.
He couldn’t talk.
I couldn’t breathe.
Holy Spirit called it COPD of the heart as I crawled back into bed at 3 a.m.
I almost lost the ability to breathe.
But God came.
I didn’t want Him to because I wanted to wallow. He taught me how to breathe from one set of lungs. I was reluctant. I was stubborn. I was hard-headed. But in time – a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng time –
He taught me the very best way to breathe is IN HIM.
