As someone who writes a blog (I still can’t refer to myself as a “writer”), I’ll often be struck by ideas and dump them into a draft to be worked on at a later date. Today I was looking through over 100 “drafts”, many with cryptic notes, some with quotes to be reflected on, others with just titles.
One of them had the title “Acts 2” and this picture of a coffee cake that didn’t turn out exactly as planned.
That’s it. That’s all she wrote (as it were). Sooo…what the heck was I thinking? Why was this meaningful in my tiny brain and what does it have to do with Acts 2? Was it funny? Serious? What part of Acts 2 was I thinking of? Peter addressing the crowd? Or the fellowship of the early believers? I’m going to guess it was Acts 2:42-47 (but maybe not)
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
The rest is up to you! Put your idea or an experience you’ve had that relates, in the comment section, even if it’s just one line. It can be silly or serious, intensely reflective or outrageously creative. I’ll pick my favorite and give a copy of Bob Goff’s Love Does!
Life is just a draft. We’re all trying to figure it out and make it better. One way I’m trying to make it better is by running to raise money for clean water for Africa. You can be a part of this caper here!
