5 Minute Friday Fun: Crowd

Hi friend!

What day is it? It's five-minute-Friday! Well at least in blog land it is.

Every Friday for over four years, writers have gathered over at Lisa-Jo's place in blog land for something she calls 5 Minute Friday. It's a linky party / blogger flash mob / free writing exercise. Whatever you want to call it, I say it's just plain fun - blog land style.

Everyone spends just five minutes writing on the same topic. If they have a blog, they link up to Lisa-Jo's post on that week's topic. No blog? No problem! Just leave your five minutes of writing in the comments section at Lisa Jo's place.

and GO!


It was so crowded that Wednesday evening at church. My T.J. had traveled the hour and a half from college to come speak to the youth.

After the service I made my way through the crowded hallway to the youth chapel. Fighting against the flow of youth exiting I looked for my son. He's 6'3" so he's always easy to spot in a crowd.

Ah! There's my boy!

He was up front talking with a few friends.

I'll never forget him turning and spotting me. He simply stood there, grinned and spread his arms open wide.

Oh yea! He knows him mom. {{HUGS}} is what I love. And if they're from either of my sons I love it better than chocolate.

I remember telling him I was sorry I interrupted his conversation with his friends. He said not to worry. He was waiting for me to find him. He knew I'd come looking for him before I headed home and he headed back to the dorm.

Even in the crowd ...... I was drawn to him and he was waiting for me.

I wonder how crowded heaven will be when I finally get there.

I'll be looking for Jesus. And I do believe when He sees I'm there - He'll smile and open His arms wide.

Oh yea! He knows His daughter and how much I love {{HUGS}}.

and STOP!

Five Minute Friday

    1. Another vote for {{HUGS}} Yay! Thanks sweet friend!

  2. {HUGS}, I can't wait either. I don't think that I will even mind waiting in the crowd for Him.

    1. Another vote for {{HUGS}}. Super! Your comment made me think - yes, I believe heaven will be crowded and we may have to wait for Him. I don't think however that we'll ever feel left out or alone or ignored, like we can here on earth when in a crowd. Makes me smile :)
