Five Minute Friday: JUMP

"So now on Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write without worrying if it’s just right gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes."

Five Minute Friday

The 5 minutes starts NOW:

There once was a girl, who married a boy.

That boy was fun to be around, and had blue eyes and curly blond hair that melted me. 

Eighteen years ago we met - smitten with each other from the start. 

But what I didn't know then was that this man was willing to jump with me. 

Jump into marriage with the willingness to work through the hard stuff. 
Jump into parenting our firstborn son just after our first anniversary. 
Jump into homeschooling when the time came.
Jump into adoption and foster care after our fourth baby was born.
Jump into having another baby the old-fashioned way after adopting two babies.

And now we jump each day - living out our lives to point others to Jesus.  Jesus jumped to our rescue.  Us, who come up short time after time.  He's the One who doesn't jump to conclusions - He jumps in to save us. 

STOP.  Good, because jump was starting to not sound like a word any more.

  2. Jumping is always more fun when there is someone to jump with! :)

    and I have had that problem before, too... when you use a word so much it doesn't sound like a word anymore!
