ADORE- Five Minute Friday

It took me awhile to meditate on this one and find the time to settle down and post for this week's Five Minute Friday. Here are my thoughts this week.


Directed towards


Relishing them with


We adore. We delight in. We give and serve whatever our hearts hold closely. Others see what and how we adore by our time, talents and treasury. They see. We can see who others ADORE. Who or what is it during this special season? 

We look. We buy. We shop. We wrap. We are busy, busy online or in the malls. How does God know we adore Him, Christ the lord ? How do we show that is where our focus is? 

The least of these. Whatever we do for the least of these. Whatever we do for the least of these, we do unto Him. How can we adore if we're not looking or noticing? Christmas is not a happy time for everyone. Many are broken from the grief of losing loved ones passed on. Others reaping defeat from another year of dreams lost or closer to death. No, Christmas is not a joyous time for everyone. 

Adoration seems to be more of a choice than a feeling. How and what do we direct our attention to this season and always?

PREPARE- My Five Minute Friday Take


Readying of materials, places or self




Relishing an

Event or experience

How much time is spent in the phase of preparation and how much enjoying the actual event?  If our journey through life on earth is meant to prepare us for eternity in heaven, it seems all of our life as we know it, is spent readying ourselves. Yet eternity is such an abstract concept, not one we can fully comprehend. I would rather spend all of my time enjoying the final event, but preparation is always necessary.

Dear...Five Minute Friday

My head was feeling fuzzy this morning and so I could not think of an acrostic right away which totally embodied it's true meaning. The first thing that popped into my head was "Dear Santa"; tis the season.

We use the word to address someone in a letter of any kind.

I use it to describe my friend, Natalie of more than 20 years.

Deserving of

Every sign of

Affection I can give

Remembering her kindness to me

We love because someone else has loved us!
