Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

Five Minute Friday

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!
OK, are you ready? Won’t you please give me your best five minutes on:::


Take a good look.
What is the Lord trying to make me see? 
I think He is telling me to look carefully and really see all the gifts He has given me.
A husband, four kids two girls two boys.

Health, jobs, vehicles, more.
Seasons, trees, fall leaves, oceans, mountains still more.

Other women willing to invest in me.
Time a very precious gift.  The one I squander the most.
Jesus.  His death to allow a relationship with Him.
Grace.  SO much grace the Lord has given me.
And I can be new every morning.
Gratitude.  I will look.  Look at what has been given to me.  So I don’t miss it.  So I can say thank you.  So, in the noticing the gifts I have been given I can give thanks and have the joy that He intended.


  1. Hoping over from FMF... I love how much you see when you look. So much to be thankful for.
    I hope I can look, really look, each day and be thankful.
