It was one of ‘those’ nights. I fell asleep too early and I was wide awake at 11 – the best thing for me to do when that happens is get out of bed, grab my Kindle and head for the living room and my chair. Shawl myself with the most delicious throw I found on a sale endcap at Target and read. Because it was Thursday night I first checked the Five Minute Friday website to see what the word prompt was. Kate Motaung had said…
I immediately knew what I would write.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. Psalm 16.6
This young man in the photo is Simon. He lives in the other half of my heart. He is our second grandblessing and is 14-years old. He’s a character – aren’t all 14-year old boys?
Since Simon was knee high to a grasshopper he was all-in, all-out, and wide-open from the time he woke up to the time he laid his head on the pillow. He and Pop-pop (my hubs) have always enjoyed movies together – ACTION movies and every one they would see together Simon would place himself right into the action. If it was Kung Fu Panda, Simon became a martial arts master and would be “High-ya’ing,” and doing kicks in the TV room. It it was Spiderman, he’d be jumping from couch to chair to ottoman as though he were scaling high buildings.
That’s Simon – he puts himself right in place of the character/s he is viewing.
Simon likes anything with wheels and he takes his place on bicycle, skateboard, or scooter with finesse and balance.
His very wise mom decided on guitar lessons when Simon was seven-years old. His music teacher rides his bike to their home once per week and teaches chords and technique, rock and roll style! Teacher doesn’t share our faith but he sure has taught our boy how to jam!
Last Sonday the Lord did the placing and placed Simon right where He wanted him.
On the worship team.
Jamming for Jesus.
I believe Simon has found his place, right smack in the middle of God’s plan for his life.
No one could be more pleased than his Mimz.
Yes, I went over the allotted five but … it’s a grandmother’s privilege and place!
