Five Minute Friday: With You, I Belong

Over at the fabulous Lisa hosts a weekly blog party called Five Minute Friday.

The rules are simple:

  1. She decides on a one-word writing prompt. This week it is “Belong”.
  2. Bloggers everywhere set their timers for five minutes.
  3. Our pens fly….can you hear the frantic scritchety-scratch? 
  4. We publish our five-minute masterpiece & share with the world. 


Where do I belong?

My first thoughts were “not here. Not on this earth. Not in this land of rolling hills. No I belong in the flat lands, the 100+ degree weather, wind that doesn’t stop.”

Then I thought “I don’t even belong in this culture. It’s not what I know. It doesn’t fit. I feel like that piece of the puzzle that just won’t fit no matter how much I twist and turn and bend. I don’t fit. I don’t belong.”

In the split second it took to think all that, I also had the feeling that this is ok. This IS my home. This IS where I belong.

And this is why,


Plain and simply,

Where he is, I belong.

Where he fits, I belong.

Where he goes, I belong.

Where He leads him, I belong.

He will not lead me where He doesn’t want me. He will not lead my husband where I don’t belong.

Home is where my husband is.

And that’s the way it’s supposed to be.

    I agree. 🙂 In my case, it is my husband that made the move from across the pond to the USA. And I'm so glad he did. BUT one thing is for sure…I will go where he is. Always.

    Home feels the best with my Ken. Nestled together wherever he is is home. I just read in another post about being sojourners in this world and that we are not of this world. Yet, while we are here, being the God&#39;s special man for us makes this journey on earth the best til Christ comes for us. <br />Caring through Christ, ~ linda
