Five Minute Friday: Invite

Our youngest turned 18 this week.  So, the running joke is that we’re officially done with parenting.  Life is full of transitions.  Sometimes navigating them can be tricky.

Linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday gang.

Today’s prompt is invite.

*****************************
When was the last time you were invited to rest?

Isn’t that a lovely word? Rest.

It conjures images of cozy fires and comfortable chairs. A rug on the floor and a lap blanket.

When we are weary and heavy laden, we are invited to rest.

To put down the burdens and put our feet up.

Wrap our hands around something hot and sweet and exhale.

To sit still in His presence and breathe peace.

What a great invitation.

Why do we insist on striving and worrying when He invites us to rest?

    Done with parenting? Beth…REALLY?

    You ain’t done until you’re dead…and then you’ll be watching anxiously from Heaven.

    Being a parent is like being a mercenary. Fatally ill, I am too sick to move more than a few steps, but if the bell rings, I’ve got my go-bag and I’m on my way to the sound of the guns. My mates may have to carry me, but I’m going.

    Some things, you don’t retire from, and the life never ends.
