Five Minute Friday–Real

“Real is as real does”
I suppose.  Something I’ve learned this week. 

I always try and help out, offer support or love to those around me who need it, when they need it.  I try to be attentive to those needs.  I do it because I want to.  Not because I expect something in return.

4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.5 For each one shall bear his own load.6 Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches.7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.  Gal 6:4-10

This week we’ve been on the other end.  Needing.  Needing love.  Needing support, and most of all needing prayer.

Drummer had a tonsillectomy on Tuesday.  Recovery has been painfully long, and hard for this sweet 12 year old boy.  He’s a trooper though and complaining very little.

And since Monday night, and Tuesday, we’ve received cards, emails, calls, FB messages, and texts….oh the texts from so many.  Many whom I’ve loved on and held hands and taken care of in their time of need.

That’s real.  That’s real God.  That’s real good.

God is good.  And the love He shares through others is real.  It’s good.
