Finally, I made it to a Five Minute Friday Twitter party – the app on my Kindle was cooperating and I almost kept up with all the posting! Several new faces. Several regulars. And, some missing in action! Summer plans were talked about and general information shared. One of our FMF faithful community members is very ill – every breath and every movement is a struggle and yet this person, who has become a friend, fights through it. At 9:43 p.m. Kate said…
I woke up at 4:30 this morning with the word on my mind.
The measure of value one puts on something or someone.
That is my definition of the word.
What is worth it to me might not be worth it to you. Life and living is very worth it to the friend I mention above. Why doesn’t he just give up and give in? Because he finds the battle to live another day worth it.
What do I consider ‘worth it?’ That is the question I ask myself this morning.
And then I thought of an old hymn we used to sing, way back when.
It will be worth it allwhen we see Jesus!Life’s trials will seem so smallwhen we see Christ.One glimpse of his dear face,all sorrow will erase.So, bravely run the racetill we see Christ.
