Five Minute Friday: Wonder

Please be sure to visit Five Minute Friday to join in the fun!

With Five Minute Friday, we are to write on the topic for five minutes, no worries, no editing, just writing. This week's topic is:


I wonder about a lot of things, like how my children are going to get along once they are out on their own as adults. I wonder how they will do out there in this big, not-always-friendly world. I wonder if they will stay close or if they will drift apart as has happened in my own family.

I wonder what it would be like to go to Ireland. Would I feel the closeness of family long gone while I breathed in the air there as I did standing in the Sharon Methodist Cemetery back home in South Carolina so many years ago? Would it be all that I have dreamed of all of these years? Would the family still there accept me as one of them or would I just be an outsider to them because I was born and grew up here in the USA rather than over there, in Ireland, like they did. Would they discount me because I don't have their beautiful brogue, although my blood runs green as theirs does?

I wonder how things will work out for me and my husband after we're on our own again without the day-to-day responsibilities of children. Will we still be a team or will we fall apart because they aren't here to bind us together?

I wonder how this current crisis is going to play out. I know that Heavenly Father has it under control and He will provide, but I wonder how and when He will do it.
