Five Minute Friday – Team

by | Aug 19, 2016 | Five Minute Friday

It’s that refreshing time of the week again… Five Minute Friday!

This week’s word:




You and I make a great teamYou and I make a great team.

Really. We need each other. To encourage, to uplift, to inspire, to motivate, to help, to bless, to teach, to believe in, to support, to celebrate.

We also need each other to guide, correct when necessary, to be real, to be honest, to give advice.

I don’t know what I’d do without you. Seriously.

Journeying through this life on the same team with you makes my days fun and delightful. I am comforted I’m not alone on the path, and I know I can count on you.

I hope you know you can count on me to. I’m here if you ever need me.

No, we won’t always agree. You maybe believe and act one way, and I might another. But that doesn’t mean either one of us should leave the team. And sometimes we might irritate each other, or be a thorn in each other’s side. But if that happens, it doesn’t mean we should bail from one another. We can be open and honest and share through love.

Two people are better than one, because they get more done by working together. If one falls down, the other can help him up. But it is bad for the person who is alone and falls, because no one is there to help.

If two lie down together, they will be warm, but a person alone will not be warm. An enemy might defeat one person, but two people together can defend themselves; a rope that is woven of three strings is hard to break. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NCV

We’re in this together, and I’m thankful we are. I thank God for you today.

We make a great team!






Five Minute Friday is when many of us gather to free-write for five minutes on a one-word prompt, chosen by Kate, the one who keeps us all in line. We share and encourage at her place, and it’s fun to see all the many directions these great friends ran with the prompt. Why not try it? Either on your own blog, in the comments below, or on a piece of paper at home. Join the fun!
