Hey all! It’s Five Minute Friday time… Each Friday, I link-up with Lisa-Jo Baker, she gives us a prompt, and we write.
No profound strategizing and content mapping… Just write.
Today’s Prompt: VIEW
If someone were to ask me my most prized possession (other than family/people in my life) my answer would be pretty easy.
It wouldn’t be our new-to-us car. It wouldn’t be my iPad or computer. It wouldn’t be a family heirloom passed down from my great grandma. It wouldn’t even be my wedding right.
It would be my 1000 gift list.
My “gift list” is inspired by Ann Voskamp’s book 1000 Gifts (imagine that, right?) and given to me by God.
It is my most prized possession because it gives me a little view of heaven.
As I flip through the 1893 gifts on my ever-growing list, I can feel my heart start to swell. I am overcome by the power, presence and love of God… And I can’t help but wonder if this isn’t the tiniest view of what heaven will be like someday.
According to my gift list, a view of heaven could be…
Inventing a new recipe… that works.
Baby girl discovering her voice and squeaking, squealing and cooing on the floor in the living room.
Praying with my Beloved.
New running shoes.
Puppy dog smiles.
Frozen yogurt with a friend.
The list (obviously) goes on… and on.
So when this world is pulling me down or my eyes start to shift from being focused upward, all I have to do is find a quiet moment, pull out that little black journal… and then I get a little view of heaven.
What “gift” is God giving to you today? I would love to see how you view heaven from an earthly perspective… Comment below– and thanks for stopping by 🙂
Be blessed (and safe) this Memorial Day weekend! (And a huge shout out to my Beloved Brandon for his unwavering service to our country. Go America!)
Viewing God with Love,
“Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar.” ~Isaiah 33:17
