It’s time for Five Minute Friday. You know, that point in the week where I link up with Lisa-Jo Baker, she gives us a prompt and we write… For five minutes.
Today’s Prompt: WRITE
Sometimes, I write.
I write with delight and sometimes with fright.
Sometimes it’s a fight… but good granny… I write.
I write in the day, and sometimes the night.
And always, oh always, I write in spite…
In spite of my flaws, my shortcomings, my distractions,
I am not quite sure of writing’s attractions.
It’s a challenge, makes me think, encourages me grow,
And what the final product will be, most times I never know.
Sometimes I write funny, happy, silly or sad,
And some interesting stuff comes out when I write flaming mad.
OH WAIT… now that I sit down and think why I write,
I write for Him, The One, Most Holy, My Christ.
That’s right. That’s why I write.
I (obviously) feel a bit Dr. Seuss-ey today… (But no Star-bellied Sneetches or overthinking the thinks you can think… Or Green Eggs and Ham, no ma’am.)
Thanks a ton for stopping by, dear friend… As you move through your day, no matter what you are doing, whether it’s writing, buying groceries, logging the hours at your job or wiping runny noses… Do it for The One who matters Most.
Writing for Christ,
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for man…” ~Colossians 3:23
