in between (5 minute friday)

Joining with the writing flash mob that is Five Minute Friday at the home of the lovely Lisa Jo Baker. Writing not for comments or traffic or anyone else’s agenda. But for pure love of the written word. For joy at the sound of syllables, sentences and paragraphs all strung together by the voice of the speaker.

Five minutes on in between

We are all living in between in our household right now.

We have a home and a roof over our heads, in rented accommodation. We have no idea of the time-span and have not known for a couple of years now.

And there are two adult children who are in between living at home and not living at home. Space which is fraught with ‘do I have enough money to spread my wings and fly away from the parents or not?’ Young hearts who want to be independent, but the wherewithal is not quite in place to make it happen.

Each one wants to know what the next phase will be, while we carry on living out daily selves and wait a little longer.

For now life’s belongings are artfully arranged on an interim shelf.

    Just like your belongings, our lives are also arranged in this interim world until Jesus has made everything new! I also have two grown sons who are both university students and still love their moms cooking!
