These Fridays sure roll around fast. It’s Five Minute Friday, where a bunch of us meet over at Lisa-Jo Baker’s to share five minutes of writing on a one-word prompt. It’s our time to throw writing details like punctuation, grammar, spelling out the window, and to just free write for a straight five minutes. And free writing it is! I love it each week. Check it out, try it yourself (even if you don’t have a blog), join us or comment below. I would love to read your five minutes of free writing!
This week’s word:
Lisa-Jo and I must be thinking similarly this week. I wrote a post Bloom Where We’re Planted earlier in the week. Great minds think alike. 🙂
Right now our home is surrounded with blooms. And I must say they are beautiful. Flowers do what they are supposed to do so beautifully, don’t they? They bloom.
Not all the time. And sometimes it’s not beautiful at all. Sometimes it’s with a terrible attitude. Griping. Complaining. Negative thoughts. Can you picture what a flower would like with a terrible attitude? And yet, at times, I must look like that to God.
That thought alone is enough to set me straight.
I pray I can bloom beautifully next week too, as I’ll be riding RAGBRAI (a week-long bicycle ride across the state of Iowa) on a tandem bike with my husband. We’ll start this adventure Sunday evening. (We’ll miss the first day of the ride due to our niece’s wedding.).
I’ll be providing updates on my blog daily, hopefully with pictures if my app work correctly. I sure would appreciate your prayers!
Wishing you a great Friday!
