Five Minutes of Grateful …


Welcome to Friday!

I’m hooking up with Lisa-Jo again to share her 5 minute writing prompt. A wonderful community of women who spend a short five minutes of writing their hearts, in real life… No edits, no corrections, no take backs!

Although, we sometimes admit to adding just a touch of extra love in pictures, videos and such! 😉

1. Write for 5 minutes flat with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing.

2. Link back to thegypsymama.com and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code
in my right side bar}

3. Go and tell the person who linked up before you what their words
meant to you.
Every writer longs to feel heard.

OK, ready? Share with us  your heart and best five minutes for the
prompt:

Grateful…

Sunshine and flowers, puppies and laughter are things I enjoy in my day to day.

For these I am grateful!

A bible to read in a world where there really are people who have never seen one, and tragically those who have died for possessing one!

For this I am grateful.

The ability to write my heart and have it shared in an infinite environment, reaching others I will likely never know.

I am grateful for this.

Coffee and clean water in bottles.

A roof and walls and floors of ancient wood, with lacey curtains fluttering in the warm summer morning breeze.

For these I am grateful.

Salvation and Favor, Grace and Unconditional Love …

for a Loving Heavenly Father who truly loves and never fails, no matter my failures …

For that I am eternally and infinitely grateful.

For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son so that whoever believes in Him would not perish but enjoy eternal life. God did not send his Son to the world to condemn us, but to save us through Him! Those who believe in Him are not condemned but are SAVED through Him …

Light has come into the world…

Whoever lives by the Truth comes into the light, so that it can be seen clearly that what they have done (everything they have done!) had been done in  the sight of God.

John 3:16-21 [in my words]

For this my very center clinches and renders me to my knees in an unbearable gratefulness that in my humanity I cannot bear, but in this tremendous gratitude my Spirit rejoices and thrives!
