Remember~~ Five Minute Friday03/22/2013 - Author: Jennifer - 10 Comments
Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker over at Tales from a Gypsy Mama gives us a word and a challenge. To write for 5 minutes without abandon. It is fun and I encourage you to try it. Here we go! The word is…
The first thing that came to my mind was remember the good times. I think this is so important as we go through life. Yes, you will have bad times and can learn from them, but those are not the ones that can get you through the daily grind.
When marriage gets hard, remember the good times. I am not saying make excuses for bad behavior or wrong choices, but don’t let small annoyances steal your joy or prevent you from making good memories. Remember why you got married. I need to remember that my marriage is a gift.
As a mom, I need to think about all of the ways my son is a blessing and not dwell on the ways he is a challenge. I need to remember that he is a gift on loan and that being a mom is a privilege. God is definitely using him to teach me to grow in my faith and rely on Him more and more each day.
I am not saying that you will never remember the bad times and that you won’t learn from them, or even be grateful for them because of growing pains, but girl, focus on the good in life!
Let’s try to remember that we should be a gift to others–to try and leave an impression of Jesus –for others to remember us by. That is how I want to be remembered.
