{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Linking to SouleMama to see other’s moments.

Five Minute Friday — Perspective

Just five minutes.




Today’s prompt:  Perspective

go . . .

This is a picture of the kitchen on Lincoln Ave, when My daughter was living there. I had a cream refrigerator with NO stuff on the front. I don’t have a picture of the kitchen when it was mine. We had to move due to financial reasons. Anyway, this was the kitchen I cooked in, laughed in and sometimes cried in, I loved it. I could have 4 work stations going at one time when we were having a party or everyone came over for dinner.

This is the kitchen I moved into. One person can cook at a time. One person can clean up at a time. Sometimes I have to share this kitchen with the Farmer. I cannot say I love it, but it does supply all I need in a kitchen.

Sometimes I use this kitchen at my neighbor’s.

It is just a matter of perspective. . .


I found and added pictures first, then wrote. Whenever I hear the word perspective; I think of  the day I received this example.

Many other writers are sharing their experiences of perspective at Gypsymama’s click here.

May 18, Today’s thought — Worry, Who Me?

Even after being gnawed on by the slugs, this zinnia is determined to grow. Grow ON!

Good Morning,

Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you 1Peter 5:7

I have a Friend, whose faithful love,
Is more than all the world to me,
‘Tis higher than the heights above,
And deeper than the soundless sea

So old, so new,
So strong so true;

Before the earth received its frame
He loved me–Blessed be His name!  Unknown.

John Bunyan Smith wrote, “Let us turn our fears into faith, and quit worrying over the thing that has not and never will happen.”

Don’t let tomorrow use too much of today!

The refusal to worry does not mean lack of concern. Too many people have that. But though one cares greatly, when he has done all he can to prevent the evil or bring the good to past, he has a right to trust in God.

It is good that a man should both
hope and quietly wait
for the salvation of the Lord.

Lamentations 3:26

Trust God for your day . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
