Five-Minute-Friday ~ Back


We can't go back and change the beginning?

I remember seeing the quote below, so I googled it, learning C.S.Lewis didn't really write those words. Someone who makes memes just added his name to it. Seems they do it with other famous people like Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, and others. Even God gets attached to some, taking his words out of context.

Isn't that breaking a Commandment?

“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

Is it okay if it's for His glory?

As I read what scholars of the bible write, who have devoted their lives to His words I can only ask questions of the knowledge they hold, hopeful to learn just a bit of what they know.

Even though the words might not be his, they are good words of encouragement.

We can't go back; however, we can change how it affects us from here on out. Can we really change the ending when we don't know what it will be? We know that by following Jesus, he will lead us to God, but only God knows our path.

Staying faithful to His words will ensure our end is eternal...


 ...thus, changing our life for Him is changing the ending!

What a week!

Set-backs to backaches can sure change a day at a moments notice! If only I could go back and do what I missed, or remember what I forgot. 

But that's not happening.

I simply pick up from where I left off and put one foot in front of the other as I move on.

Like taking a couple of afternoons and spending them at Chucky Cheese or GetAir with the youngest grand!

It took a day to pull out the boxes and boxes of old-old photos to dig through looking for our ribbon cutting ceremony from when we bought our business twenty-five years ago, but it's going to take me a lot longer to put it all back.

My table is full of years spread out, a few found new home in empty frames and are now on display.

Unfortunately, the boxes have been rummaged through so many times over the years looking for one moment in time or another, and those photos never made it back to their original box. So before they go back into the closet, I am determined to make heads and tails of those stragglers, assuring they find their proper place.

Forty-four years of moments add up to one heck of a lot of photos!

What an incredible story they tell.

Don't forget, you can...

  1. very true that. We can't change the past, but we can look to the future and work to a better ending. :)


A penny for your thoughts...
