It’s Five Minute Friday!
I’ve been away from this group for a few weeks. Oh, it feels great to be back! It where we gather on Twitter Thursday evenings for what we call Five Minute Friday Party (#fmfparty) to connect and have fun. We free-write for five minutes on a one-word prompt and share at Kate Motaung’s place. I’m amazed at what these friends write! Come join the fun!
Here we go!
This week’s word:
Our beds are often unmade.
Our bedroom could stand a fresh coat of paint.
A basket of laundry currently sits next to me in the dining room.
I have weeds in my flowerbeds.
We have more farm cats than we’d like, but my heart is drawn to care for them.
Our back yard’s fence is a corn field.
I swear we live on the dustiest road in Iowa.
That’s what’s going on here. And here is home.
I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Where we say, “I’m sorry.” Where we forgive.
Here is where we are far from perfect, and we’re okay with that.
Where peace is present, and laughter is large.
Here is where we encourage, and bless, and where we can be ourselves.
Where we live with a certain set of “home rules.” (See above.)
Here our walls are donned with scripture and photos of family.
You’d see at first glance what’s important here.
No, we don’t have the newest or best “things,” but we have what’s most important.
We have each other.
We do life together here.
And that my friend, is priceless.
What comes to mind when you think of the word “here?” I’d love to read your thoughts below. Join us for Five Minute Friday, even if you do it on your own, on a piece of scratch paper. It’ll do your heart good!
Have a blessed day!
