The Challenge to Make a Choice

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “Challenge”. The first verse that popped into my head this morning is this verse from Joshua 24. “choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…But as for me and my house we will serve the Lord” I’m not quite sure why I look at that as a challenge. […]

This Mom Sets the Pace

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “pace”. We were camping last weekend, down by the lake. It was beautiful weather, not too hot but just warm enough to swim. We rode bikes, hiked, swam, and threw rocks in the water. At our own pace, no one telling us what to do next or where to […]

God Gave Me Five

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “five”. Funny, the first thing I thought of when I saw the prompt was the children’s song “Five Little Indians”. Anyone know it? “one little, two little, three little indians…” Instead of singing the song to you, I thought I’d tell you about my five little blessings. After a […]

Staying Faithful in the Middle

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “middle”. I begin every school year with great excitement. New material to explore, brightly colored teaching aids hang on the walls, sharp-tipped crayons and colored pencils are ready for creativity. We have an entire school year to embrace. Unfortunately, that enthusiasm doesn’t last. Oh, it stays with us through […]

Good Things Come to Those Who are Willing

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “willing”. “And He entered the synagogue again, and a man was there who had a withered hand. 2 So they watched Him closely, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him. 3 And He said to the man who had the withered hand, “Step forward.” 4 Then He said to them, “Is it lawful on […]

A Promise is Forever

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “promise”. I love the word promise. I know it sounds strange to love a word, but I have always felt a positive association with it. Perhaps promises made to me have not been broken enough to have scarred me, or perhaps I have had a stressful week and simply […]

The Opportunity to do Good

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “opportunity”. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10 Loving one another and being kind is pretty much Christian living 101. We all know how we should treat each other. Do we do it? My […]

What is it that you lack?

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “lack”. In today’s world of comparison, it is easy to become caught up in things you lack. I am always refocusing and counting my blessings in order to ward off the “I should have” or “I want” or “my kids need” or “the neighbor just got”. As I was […]

How do You Measure Success?

Today’s five minute friday prompt is “measure” So, I ask you, in today’s crazy world of comparison traps, how do you personally measure success? I think it will look different for each of us, right? My life is different than yours and my situations are unique to me. As a homeschooling mom I am often […]

To Just be in this Moment

Today’s five minute friday word is “just”. When I saw today’s word, the first thing that came to mind was “just breathe”. Many of you know that I struggle with anxiety since Rebekah’s accident. The dark fears and “what ifs” are my constant companions. The only way I know to combat this thinking is to […]

Confident in Love

Today’s Five Minute Friday word is “Confident” This can be a tricky word. A confident person can come across as reassuring or stuffy. Sometimes we like confident people and sometimes we are envious of them. I think it is a good one for me to consider this morning as I had an exhausting day yesterday. […]
