Five Minute Friday — New

So we gather here every Friday to compare our five minute masterpieces, in all their messy beauty. We just write, without worrying if it’s just right or not.


Almost every time I hear the word NEW, I think of this scripture:

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:21-23

A fresh new day

A fresh new canvas

A fresh new heart

A new leaning on that faithfulness and not my own strength

A new showing compassion

A new smiling

I often find that hard to do, smile, to let my face show that my heart feels peace, contentment, and joy

in this new time of my life, empty nest, retired Farmer, reduced circumstances..

Because I remember “They are new every morning” I receive His Grace and Comfort in my NEW.

( Scripture and picture not included in 5 minutes, I’m way to slow to fit typing and additions in the time limit)

  1. I’m chuckling about your going over 5 minutes. I had to add my links outside of the 5 minutes, too. 🙂 “Tomorrow is always fresh, with no mistakes in it!” (Anne of Green Gables) 🙂

  2. Yes, bless this day, with the new mercies we discovered. For me, it was a single lilac of surprise blooming amidst all the old, tired, long-spent blossoms of May, and with it a reminder that what He began, He will finish, even if I’m on the slower side. Grace and comfort to you this evening!

  3. Yes, smiling is a way that we show our heart is full of contenment and joy. And you are right. . every day is fresh and new. Praying God’s love and joy for you. Nice to *meet* you. Thanks for posting this on Five Minute Friday.

  4. A fresh, new look at each day…there is wisdom there! How nice it is to have a new start every morning!
