5 Minute Friday- TOGETHER
On Fridays we write with gusto, unselfconscious and flat out write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. Click on the link at the bottom of the post to join in on the fun!
Last night I had a terrible dream. In the dream, our youngest son who is 20 months, had disappeared. I was sitting in a house with my parents and friends from Colorado. It was a very small house with only one bedroom…very cramped. Even in my dream I began to panic. I was looking for him everywhere. I became more and more frustrated that no one was as panicked as me. We started to venture outside of the house with fear because we knew that he had learned to open doors and then it happened. In my dream, I began to pray. I prayed for God to help me find him and for God to look after him. I woke up. As I sat in my room pondering this bad dream, I was reminded of a story I had heard about a car accident and the narrator asked, when you start to slide, do you pray to God or do you react with fear to the situation?!?! In times of strife we tend to take everything on our own shoulders. We try to solve the problems ourselves. But, we don’t have to do it alone. We are together with God every moment of our lives. That togetherness keeps us safe, that togetherness shows us love and being together with God is the best relationship we have. I am so blessed by God that I am at home together with my family, day in and day out! Together….We are together in this world. Not Alone. Together we go on and Together we move forward. Together with God.
