Kate Motaung hosts this fun event each and every week. It begins on Thursday evening with a party, a Five Minute Friday Twitter Party and lasts well into the weekend as FMF writers add their five minute essay to the linkup. If words fascinate you and the written word draws you? Do say, you must give it a try!
The Twitter feed was buzzing last night – I think even at an online party I am happiest doing what I do at an in-real-life party … and that is to observe. I am a watcher. The FMF community is one dear to my heart – it helped pull me up out of a grieving mire – it sprang life in a rather mundane long winter in the form of a book and it has shaped many true friendships, it is an online neighborhood where one is…
As I shut my Kindle and turned off the light last night I immediately thought of a quote. A quote from one of my all-time favorite stories and it involves a Lion. Not any lion mind you…
Aslan, the King of Lions.
“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” ― C.S. Lewis,
Just ask Paul after the shipwreck.
Ask Peter as he watches Jesus re-attach the ear of Malchus.
Talk to Mary as she sees her Son walk with a cross-beam tied to His flayed back.
Or John the Revelator after being boiled in oil.
Or John the Baptizer.
Or James the Apostle.
Or Jim Elliott.
Or Jeffrey Sorvik.
Or Richard Wurmbrand.
Who said anything about SAFE?
But He is the only One I will entrust my life to.
Jesus … my safe place.
