Five Minute Friday: There’s a Blessing in the WAIT!

Wait! Wait!! Wait!!! Not many of us like to hear this word because it seems to be an interruption. We’re in the middle of something – focused on completion. Just let me be and get done. Oh, hold on… So, two scenarios here. Scenario 1: Someone is interrupting you – wanting you to wait on your current project to tell you, inform, or enlighten you on something that COULD possibly help with what you’re currently doing. Scenario 2: You tell the person to wait until you finish. Have you missed out on critical information. Are you rushing to complete something you’ve procrastinated on?

Here’s another thought with relation to the title: We can be in such a rush sometimes that we miss out on the lesson to be learned, we miss out on an opportunity, we miss out on being a blessing to someone else or even the recipient of a blessing. The WAIT allows us to see clearly when we take the time to s…l…o…w… down. You see things clearly, you see things you normally would not have seen, you embrace the beauty of the moment. You can breathe… (times)… you can smell, you can taste, and see that all things are good!!!

Thanks for reading. If you have a love for writing, but often times not sure what to write about, this is a good place to start and stay as we receive weekly word prompts from Kate Motaung via the Five Minute Friday Community Page.

    Although I would not deign to wait,
    it’s coming anyway.
    I cannot escape my fate
    and death is now in play.
    It’s written in my mirrored face,
    it’s written on the wall
    in bloody words of savage grace:
    “In time all men must fall.”
    I don’t know why it’s happening,
    I don’t know why I’m here;
    but away with weak-suck whining
    and crying in my beer.
    Cancer cannot win one fight:
    I’ll be dying honour-bright.
