Our hostess Kate just revealed the prompt last night--way past my bedtime, so I didn't see it until this morning.
I remember how it felt when I was young (many, many years ago!) and got a new pair of shoes. They were clean and shiny and a little bit uncomfortable. The adjustment took a little time.
If you are a Christian, do you remember when you were first saved? For me it was a gradual process, so I never had that moment of WOW.
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like. One of my friends described it as spreading a sheet on the bed. You know how you lift it up to catch the air, then let it fall? How it's perfectly smooth and unwrinkled? She said everything just felt RIGHT.
I had some of that feeling, though, when I was baptized. That was just a few years ago, even though I'd been a believer for years before that. I was a little nervous, only because I was doing this in front of the whole congregation. (I guess that's like the shoes being uncomfortable!) But with the immersion and rising out of the water, I felt new. Reborn. A shiny, new person. I know I'd already been forgiven, but the baptism felt like a fresh start. It was a beautiful thing.
What has been your favorite WOW or AHA moment?
