It’s Friday again! I know I’ve been away for a while. I hope you will understand. I got to spend a week with my family and I’m still getting back into the swing of it all. I’ve also been typing my little fingers like crazy getting ready for April.
My lovely Stitch Sisters (Becky, Stacey, Jo & Lizzie) - my cohorts in blogging, teasing and general silliness – are going to blog from A to Z over the month of April, Monday to Saturday, for 26 days! I’m not a big finisher, so this will indeed be a challenge for me. Prayers and encouragement appreciated. I hope you’ll come back on Monday to learn a little more about me. If you don’t want to miss is spine-tingling moment, you can just go ahead and subscribe over there on the right hand sidebar.
For now I join with another troupe of word-winders and story-spinners for a 5 minute free for all.
The rules are simple: write with abandon for 5 minutes flat without looking back, go link-up with the lovely Lisa-Jo Baker, comment on the post of the one who linked up before you. I don’t mean to shout, but I’ve noticed that some are ignoring this little courtesy. Then just explore all the wonderful offerings laid before you like a buffet of goodness.
Here are my five minutes on: BROKEN
That small white flake, so clean, so perfectly even: how is it something so small, so seemingly insignificant, is the whole meaning of the universe embodied? The tray, small and silver, passed from filthy, sinful hand to filthy sinful hand.
It’s not the crumb. In itself, it is powerless, not even enough to quell an aching stomach. It gives no eternal life on its own.
Oh, but that body. They one that was broken, on rough wood and rusty spike. That body, bloodied and mangled, that is the bread that gives eternal life. That body is the Word that feeds us daily – for all eternity.
This is too important to leave at that.
If this is your first time here and you are wondering what this is all about, know this: Christ died for you on that cross over two thousand years ago. Like the thief next to him, all you have to do is say your ABCs! A – admit that your sins have separated you from God and that you are in need of forgiveness. B- Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the perfect sacrifice that can remove that sin. C- Confess that Jesus Christ in now LORD of your life. Please let me know if this is something you’d like to know more about at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bless you as we celebrate a risen Savior that takes away the sins of the world.
He is Risen!
