New: Bloom Where You’re Planted … 5 Minute Friday


 Welcome to 5 Minute Friday.

Here’s how it goes. We are all writers and always think about writing; but we also compare and question if we are “real” writers. So Lisa-Jo so creatively decided on the five minute writing prompt: imperfect posts, nothing particularly profound, simply five minutes of focused writing.

No true editing, no worry in regard to grammar, font or punctuation … just a concentrated truth from the heart on the prompt provided!

So join me and pour out what is on your heart today!

Today‘s prompt: NEW … Lisa-Jo pooled us all on facebook and this gem won!

Remember … set the timer for 5 and … GO! 

Bloom Where You Are Planted

I am not who I was yesterday … God‘s mercies were new this morning when the sun rose and I get to be whomever I choose today. I get to be the Andrea God made today! Let’s hope I don’t alter that vision of beauty and perfection! 🙂

Life has been a trial of late … but I am finding in the newness of this overcast morning, sun hiding behind the cloudy haze, that life is the trial. I am running a race and the finish line is in a new place each day, but at the end I get a shiny new trophy of God’s acceptance and adoration.

New … I have a new opportunity each day to be positive … to change my perspective … to polish the tarnish off of my silver lining.

Each sunrise is a new watercolor to entice the new me to perfection, though God does not require this …

Each evening sunset eases the feeling of old to calm, and prepares me for the new day … where I can again decide to strive for God’s path …

What’s new today? Me … Wonderful to meet you here!

STOP!

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old
life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17

This has been a 5 minute post!

Now you … Link up with all of us at Lisa-Jo’s the gypsymama!

** Scripture and picture added after the five minutes; though both were intended before the writing began. 🙂
