Five minutes of writing, every Friday. It’s something I enjoy each week with some incredible friends and writers. It’s hard for me to believe I didn’t know a one of them last year at this time. Yet now, I can’t imagine my Thursday evenings without this community of lovelies. They encourage this heart of mine so!
Five Minute Friday, when many take the “challenge” to write for five minutes. Not much planning involved. No concern for the things we normally fuss about… punctuation, grammar, spelling. It’s just pure, honest writing. We gather to share at Kate Motaung’s place, and encourage each other over there. It’s something beautiful. And we’d love for you to join us. Either on your blog, or in the comments below my post. I’d love to read your Five Minutes!
This week’s word:
Nothing melts my heart more than when my husband addresses me by the name he’s used since we were first married. He calls me Dear.
“Hey Dear. How’s it going?” “Dear, How was your day?”
A day doesn’t go by that he doesn’t use this expression of love for me. It makes me smile.
You’re here today, and that makes me smile, too. It means the world to me that you’ve chosen to spend a few minutes of your day hanging out here. You are dear to my heart, and I thank you for “doing life” with me. It’s a joy to journey alongside of you.
I’m reminded of Apostle Paul as I write this. He had friends in his life that were dear to him too, and he addressed them in the same way my husband does me. May God’s Words through Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:58 encourage each one of us, as friends, and as co-laborers in Christ.
With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort. 1 Corinthians 15:58 The Message
God bless you, especially today! You are dearly loved.
