Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!
OK, are you ready? In the spirit of welcoming the 31 Dayers to join us, won’t you please give me your best five minutes on:::
I always felt welcome.
Sometimes it’s hard to find the place where you fit in, even after almost a decade.
I realize that to feel welcome, I too must allow others to feel welcome.
In my home, in my life.
Welcoming someone is a gesture, accepting them into your little world.
No matter what they bring along with them.
Be it baggage or encouragement.
Good times or bad times.
Welcoming as God welcomes us.
He doesn’t sent us packing when we show up at His feet with our baggage.
He relieves us of the baggage and helps us pick up and move on.
I want to always make everyone feel welcome in my home. In my life.
Great friends, good times, growth, strength, patience.
All these things can only come once you’ve welcomed them in.
I miss feeling welcome back home.
I miss home.
Yet, here is where the Lord has me.
Here is where I must ensure everyone feels welcome in my home.
Welcoming them means I must open my home and my heart.
As God does for me.
I am always welcome at His feet. In His arms.
