FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY: Look
Look at the fields ripe for harvest, Jesus says in my Bible, and you know what? Our fields are just a few corn plants put in late, and that they grew at all is wonderful.
They’re not cornfields like Ann posts about.
They’re just what we have, and today I asked Ravinia to pick them.
Living in the moment, not letting myself give way to fear, thanking the Lord for what he has provided, I rejoice even in small ears of corn, corn that actually grew, corn that may be sweet after all, reality and beauty in the small things. Life in the moment.
Look at what is.
Thank God for it.
Look to him and celebrate.
Eat and enjoy, and perhaps we will have candy corn for dessert!
