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 —
Some days I get up feeling like nothing. Worn out, tired already, frustrated by busy full-up days, running ragged. And guess what? I’m not a young mama of two, three or more little ones. I’m a retired grandma.
And still I get up some days feeling like nothing. Why, I wonder?
I have the opposite of how I feel — everything I could want. Loving husband, three grown children, four grands and three great-grands, plus a lovely home and yard, a fantastic church family, friends in abundance, food on the table, money to spend.
Ah, but there’s something better than my nothing, even more spectacular than my everything life here in my little wooded lot.
God takes my feeling like nothing days, mixes them up with the idea I have everything I could want, and shows me that I’ve got it all wrong!
Never is there a day I should feel like nothing because I am His! Never is there a day I should calculate whether I have everything I could want because I have Him!
From nothing to everything in the twinkling of an eye based on an unconditionally loving Father in Heaven taking care of it all.
(Scripture and images added after five minutes were up)
Lots of folks come together to do this every Friday.
