Well Friends, as you know Friday is the day I write for five minutes for 5 Minute Friday over at Lisa-Jo's place and I want to invite you there if you have not already ventured on over! I love these prompts and even the five minute limit. Lord knows, I need limits! Well before I start I want to just link last weeks post because this week our writing prompt is Connect, and my friends there is a divine connection related to my last 5 minute Friday post (in case you have the urge to know more, or want a retake: it's HERE).
I am sitting across the table ordering coffee.
The third "connection" with possibility.
Listening for the catch. Waiting for the confirmation.
Leery, yet hopeful.
He looks back at me, this partner of the person I first interviewed with last week.
I am pleased with the manners, communication and consideration displayed.
The breakfast meeting goes long.
He orders toast, I can't even think of food.
I just want confirmation.
Then the question. Availability.
Only not available one day when I volunteer at my daughter's school.
He leans in.
Do you mind if I ask what you do there?
I sheepishly (shame on me) confess
Meet with a group of Moms and lead prayer.
At which point God reveals our true connect.
To our amazement and joy.
