Five Minute Friday – Present


“Writing is like wrapping yourself in words and giving yourself away.” ~@lisajobaker

This is where a brave and beautiful bunch gather every week to find out what comes out when we all spend five minutes writing on the same topic and then sharing ‘em over here.

Present: being, existing, or occurring at this time or now; current:


In the school room the teacher calls my name.
I respond, “PRESENT!”

I don’t want the teacher to miss me.

I don’t want to miss out.

I want to be present,

I have to be present

not only in body but also in mind and spirit.

Otherwise, I’ll miss the part that is especially for me.

I’ll leave half full, wanting, even perhaps empty.

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Matthew 22:37

July 12- Today’s thought -The Jesus Storybook Bible

Good Morning

God is my Shepherd
And I am his little lamb.

He feeds me
He guides me
He looks after me.
I have everything I need.

Inside, my heart is very quiet.
As quiet as lying still in soft green grass
In a meadow
By a little stream.

Even when I walk through
the dark, scary, lonely place
I won’t be afraid
Because my Shepherd knows where I am.

He is here with me
He keeps me safe
He rescues me

He makes me strong
And brave.

He is getting wonderful things ready for me
Especially for me
Everything I ever dreamed of!

He fills my heart so full of happiness
I can’t hold it all inside.

Wherever I go I know

God’s Never Stopping

Never Giving Up


Always and Forever


Will go, too!~

Sally Lloyd-Jones : The Jesus Storybook Bible

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:2-3

Be childlike. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
