It’s Friday — time to write with absolute abandon.
Why? Because it’s Five Minute Friday at Lisa-Jo’s and
that’s what hundreds of us do on Friday.
So time to start the ticker and write for
a full five minutes full-out without editing or correcting
on just one word —
Such a small word. Only three letters, and two of them the same. S – E – E.
And yet, those three letters hold so much.
With our eyes open, we can see all that happens around us.
With our eyes closed, we can see through our mind’s eye and let our imaginations see what can be, expectations can be dreamed of, and tomorrows can be planned.
With our hearts open, we can see God’s love, His plan for our lives, His hopes for us.
When I get caught up in the world’s sorrows and woes on the news, I see heartache and sadness that overwhelms. I see hurting people. I see opportunities to serve and if not physically or financially able, I see the opportunity to pray.
When I see my neighbors and church community in need, I see service open for action.
There is so much to see in the vast world around us, God’s world, that we should never want for ways to serve Him and His people. With eyes open or closed, those needs don’t change.
What can you see today that calls you to service?
Lots of folks come together to do this every Friday.
