5 Minute Friday - Join

Five Minute Friday

Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.   Then join up with Lisa Jo and share your writings.  Here we go:

Join

Lying in bed procrastinating the day and snuggling with my son; the night was late and the morning, oh so early.  Checking my e-mail, I see 'Join'.  Uttering the simple word aloud with question on inspiration, my son begins to inquire.  I explained that every Friday we're given a word to write about, something for practice.  He said, "Mom, I have a perfect story for you."  (Paraphrasing his 7 year old tale):  We could go to someone's house and invite them to church.  Then on Sunday, when they arrived, we could teach them and their children all about God and the kids would have lots of fun and afterwards, they would love our church and want to join.

My heart was pierced with such simple yet profound wisdom from my son.  He had no prompting from his Momma, only from the Holy Spirit to spread His love; to evangelize and witness our testimony and to freely share it with others.  My friends, I have a missionary in the making.  But aren't we all called to join in His work and share His graces with others?  "...And a little child will lead them." (Isaiah 11:6)  My heart be still!

I love this story! What a sweet sweet boy. Good job mom, you've shown him how amazing God.

What a great 5MF story.

Great words from a seven year old who has obviously been brought up in the knowledge of the Lord thanks to a great mom.
