Writing for 5 minutes today with the community started by Lisa-Jo Baker. See her post here.
SHE was made to be a helper and companion for the first man.
SHE heard an angel say that God would place a baby in her womb.
SHE believed the serpent’s lie.
SHE asked the angel how she could become pregnant when she was a virgin.
SHE ate the fruit because it looked good, and she wanted wisdom.
SHE praised the Lord for His miracle.
SHE gave the fruit to her husband.
SHE, heavy with child, traveled long miles with her husband.
SHE blamed the snake for her sin.
SHE found nowhere to lay her head for the coming birth.
SHE made the first dress from leaves.
SHE prepared her baby’s first bed in the cow’s manger
SHE learned that God’s displeasure meant childbearing would be full of pain.
SHE bore the pain and gave birth to the Messiah.
SHE became the mother of the first two sons: Eve, Mother of all the Living.
SHE treasured up all the things that happened at her son’s birth. She continued to think about them as she watched this son grow: Mary, the mother of the Son of the Living God.
Confession: I seldom can stick to the 5 minute regimen. Maybe I should call it “Friday’s One Word Challenge.”
Finding joy today because
- it is a Grace Day
- we explored the treasures of our downtown library
- we ate gifts from God’s bounty
- we love Grace Jennifer.
