This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is:




Set a timer for for five minutes, and let’s write:

It’s happening.

Exactly three months from THIS WEEKEND, a whole hoard of us are congregating in the heartbeat of the U.S. to join our own heartbeats in unison. We’re coming from near and far to gather together just because.

And it’s going to be amazing.

We’ve got introverts and extroverts, northerners and southerners, ready and willing to link arms and meet for the first time. But I have a strong hunch that it’s going to feel like we’ve known each other forever.

[Tweet “There’s a common thread that has sewn us together, even if we’ve been cut from different cloths.”]

We’re unified and united in grace, and we meet to encourage.

And I have a feeling that it’s going to be a lot like a foretaste of heaven — when the Lord Himself gathers us up from near and far, and we’ll meet him together in the air, to be with Him forever.

The first weekend of August is going to be so great — but not nearly as amazing as the ultimate meeting, when we’re united to the One who holds all things together for His glory.
