Five Minute Friday: Hero

Five Minute Friday.
The day we write for five minutes on a given word.
This week's word is HERO.


My Dad was a Hero.
No, he really was.
His training session at The Salvation Army college was called
'Heroes of the Faith'.

What a title!
What a challenge!
What a legacy!

I met with colleagues this week for a time of worship.
We gave thanks for the life of our regional leader
who died suddenly from a heart attack last Thurs.

We sang our songs
We prayed our prayers
We told our stories of Peter.

We talked about his caring nature
His sense of humour
His ability to get angry graciously
His integrity

His love for God
His wife
His family
His people

We laughed
We cried
We gave thanks for this man of God
Taken from us at a time we wouldn't have chosen,
had we been given the choice.

A man of God
A man of faith
A hero.
