This site will feature Bible-based articles some days, silly posts and quotes at least twice a week and facts about Jack the Ripper-to begin with.

Hey, y’all ! It’s Friday, and every Friday I hook up with another blogger, named Lisa Jo, from South Africa, to do a fun little exercise called 5 minute friday. Anyone is welcome to chime in, just add your post to the link above or click on the button on my sidebar. The rules are simple: write for five minutes without stopping to check it on the word that she gives you, link it up to her blog, and visit the link before yours and leave a nice comment.
This week, I wanted to do something different for my post. There is a couple I know, in Texas, whom I have known since I was a little girl. I just found out today, that their 15-year-old daughter is sick with a pancreatic disease and has been in the hospital. Her name is Megan, and I want to dedicate this post to her. So, here we go:
Ache.
Go.
You have been aching a lot lately but not for naught. You might still be aching but the aching makes you stronger. When you were little, you may have had a toothache or a headache. Maybe you even had an ear infection. That aches really bad. Even though it aches, the next time you ache, you will be stronger and better able to deal with it.
As you get older, you will ache again. At some point, you will experience heartache but your experience with this illness has helped you build up defenses, that will help you through. At some point, a boy will break your heart but when you’re older and your children break your heart, you will have the experience and strength to get through.
God knows what He is doing when He sends us aches and pains. He is getting us ready for things to come and we grow closer to Him if we lean on Him.
Get well, sweet one and tell your parents that they will be OK! Too.
Stop.
Well, time’s up. Do you have any thoughts on Aching? If so, click my button and add them to my comment box, if you like. Any prayers for Megan King would still be appreciated. Thanks.

  1. So sorry to hear about Megan…praying she will regain her health and strength quickly. You are so correct, it is often within the ache we grow closer to God.

    • Thank you for your prayers. I will pass it along. Yes, when things go great, we don’t learn anything but we do learn from trials.
      Thanks for stopping by. Come back any time.

  2. A nice dedication for Megan. There are so many illnesses around today & it’s especially sad when they affect children

  3. This is Megan’s dad. Thanks, Holly, for your words of support. Here’s part of a song I wrote for Megan a couple of weeks ago. It echoes your thoughts on learning a lesson from our “aches”.

    Winter don’t last, spring never skips her turn
    This too shall pass, wait now, the lesson learn
    When your path leads through the vale
    Lift your head, there’s a better way
    Dawn breaks, lighting up your trail
    Look ahead, there’s a better day

    Hope is a hand reaching up to a dark sky
    Take your stand, let your sparks fly
    When you drink from the bitter cup
    You bow your head and you wonder why
    When the world says you oughta give up
    Hope says give it one more try

    And there’s hope on the horizon
    And a new sun is risin’
    There is no compromisin’
    `Cause there’s hope on the horizon

    – bak

    • Wow, that’s beautiful! I’m sure she’ll love it! Thanks for sharing it with me. Thanks for coming to my site. I hope you liked the post. We’re still praying for you and Megan.

  4. Prayed for Megan as I read your post. What a lovely 5min write to her!
    we don’t realize while growing up that the growing pains will never fully go away, do we… still, I’m blessed to know I’m worth the effort…

    All for Him,
    Nikki
