The party was crowded last night and I was a complete wall flower, as in INVISIBLE! For some reason my posts didn’t show up in the Twitter thread – I’d make comments and ask questions, but no one saw me. I was a technicality outcast last night and I didn’t like it one bit. The host of the party, Kate Motaung, who holds this crazy Five Minute Friday party every Thursday night had no idea I was there because I was virtually INVISIBLE!
00.00 Timer is set
Have you ever felt like that? You are present but no one sees you? No one hears you? I don’t like the word this week because it reminds me of my earthly mortality – yes, I know I’m going to heaven. Yes, I don’t fear death. No, I don’t want to go yet. Not yet, you see I love life and this time in God’s history? Is pretty exciting, scary at times but definitely anticipatory. The word I don’t like?
I have been young, and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his (her) children begging bread. Psalm 37.25
The seasons of life.
Seasons come – seasons go.
The day my mother died was the exact moment I entered “this” season. I no longer had a Mom – I instantly became the matriarch of the family. My sister and I were left with her prayer mantle and ministry. She was a pray-er and an encourager.
I remember the day my Grandmother Emily passed away and my own mother said, “I’m it – I’m the next generation.”
This may sound morbid and foreboding but I don’t mean it to – it is life, and I love mine! It is God’s design, which makes it perfect. Throughout the Old Testament we read about men and women getting old. We read the “begats” –
because after this season,
the eternal season begins…
