I believe most of my readers already know this but every Thursday evening on the world wide web about 8 p.m. eastern time a pre-party begins on Twitter with a big crowd of women and men who find a crazy five-minute writing challenge engaging and stretching! It’s called Five Minute Friday and it’s hosted by a very lovely lady, Kate Motaung (mO-tA-ooong). If you like to write, you must try this, and, you really don’t even have to have a blog. You can go to Kate’s and do a 5-minute free write in her comment section, or if you want to start out small, do one in my comments. It’s great fun and quite challenging. I went to the party last night but Twitter and my Kindle were in a fight or something because posting was slow and painful – I gave up and went to sleep so I didn’t see the word prompt until 5:30 this morning…
Shall we begin?
When I was a little girl, I told my grandma Emily that I thought heaven would be boring. She would answer in her sweet voice, “Oh Susie, if you need your dolls to have fun in heaven, they will be there.” She was so practical and her answer soothed my seven-year old angst. When my youngest was considering heaven, he asked me, “What are we going to do there forever?” In true grandma Emily fashion I told him, “If you need a basketball court to have fun and enjoy heaven, there will be gold-surfaced courts!” Happiness!
Now, that I’m the old one I realize that heaven is going to be one big holy celebration for eternity!
As a young adult I was sinning my life away and grandma Emily knew it. On her deathbed (I tell you the truth) she gave me such a rebuke about my life style that it literally stopped me in my flip-flops and began the end of my prodigal living. I know the moment I completely surrendered my life to the Lord and chose to live for Him there was a big party of one! Maybe two or three! But, in the hallways of heaven, my grandma Emily was doing the celebratory, happy hallelujah dance because her girl had done a U-turn!
Did you know that when ONE person repents and gives their heart to the Lord, the very angels of heaven CELEBRATE? It says so right here!
Can you even imagine the celebration we are going to have when the Lord Jesus Christ says to His church, “Come, let us celebrate the wedding feast of The Lamb and His bride.”
O! What a day of celebration that will be! Glory!
