In the month of October I will be linking up with other writers on Five Minute Friday for thirty-one days. Each day I will write about one word for five minutes. Here goes…

The photo above is from many years ago at Summit Lake, on our son’s autumn birthday. It was rare time when birthdays were celebrated at the lake.

This is proof that children do help their parents with tasks related to home. I don’t remember asking two daughters to help me, but I know for a fact that many mothers avoid asking for help.

Both my grandmothers enjoyed doing all the cooking and baking alone, but I see such a wealth of knowing a person better when you work with them in the kitchen. Kitchens are places of safety and private talks are often held there. 

I learned how Grandma stretched the dough for apple strudel when I popped in one day while she was in the midst of it. That was better than coming and finding I missed out after it was already baked. I was able to peel and cut the apples.

Christ asked people many questions:

What do you want?

Do you want to be healed? 

Why do you worry about clothes?

Who do people say the son of man is?

What good thing must I do to get eternal life?

When the women were on the way to the grave of Christ, they asked…who is going to roll the stone away? But they still appeared.

The angel asked the women… why do you seek the living among the dead?

Asking questions is a good thing…it’s learning. Keep asking questions and God will give you answers.
