Five Minute Friday – Beloved

Linking in with Lisa Jo to write for  5 minutes only. See the bottom of the post if you want to join.


Father and son. Beloved.

The first words that come into my head when I think of beloved are the words of God about His Son, Jesus:

“And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17, NIV).

Then I think of my family and they are my Beloved Family in whom I am well pleased.

My husband who always nurtures me, protects, calms me, encourages me – that is how he shows His love and I love him so much.

My kids who are all grown up with families of their own. I am so happy that they can stand on their own and with their spouses stand firm in the love they have for each other. I can see their caring natures, their discipline in their lives and teaching of their children, their work ethic – and their caring for their friends and co-workers. I know how much they love my hubby and myself and how I can count on any one of them at a moment’s notice.

My grandkids who I dearly love and miss since I am away in Arizona. I love their hugs, their snuggles, and their sweetness. I love their enthusiasm, their excitement and their exuberance for life.

Yes I love them all – deeply, and I thank God I am having the pleasure of watching them grow.

Yes I am well pleased. Thank you Lord.
