Five Minute Friday: On Waiting...



This is only my second week doing Five Minute Fridays, but I was so excited for Friday to get here so that I could participate again this week. Join me this week. If you decide to join in the fun make sure to link up over at The Gypsy Mama.

"It’s Friday. If you’ve got five minutes, I’m all ears. Here’s how the game works: you simply stop, drop and write for five minutes flat! Set your words free. Don’t edit them, don’t fret over them, don’t try to make them perfect."

On Waiting...

Go.

Waiting can be so difficult. I remember as a child waiting in line at Disneyland inching closer and closer to the desired destination.

I have waited a lot in my life. I remember waiting and waiting to meet the man I would marry, and then at some point I stopped waiting and just decided to live life and enjoy where I was, and then I met him and I am so glad that he is in my life.

As I think about it, I have waited a lot in my life. Life is often about waiting, waiting for this or that to happen. Waiting for a certain time in the day, waiting for a certain time in the week.

We even wait for the return of the Lord with anticipation. Waiting can be difficult and can be down right hard.

Waiting is a good thing...We can learn so much by just being patient and waiting. But there is a negative side to waiting. Sometime when we wait we waste away the life we are living waiting for that thing to happen. So go and live your life, wait with anticipation for the next thing (what ever it is) to happen in your life, but do not just wait and think that there is nothing else until that happens. You will miss so many wonderful things that could happen in the mean time.

STOP.

Five minutes goes by so fast.

Have a wonderful Friday and remember to not just wait on life, go out and live life.

We all would do well to learn to wait well.
