HIDE-Five Minute Friday

I am a little late with last Friday's prompt as I wrestled with what to write. What could I say? What did I feel comfortable sharing?  I took the plunge tonight and here are my thoughts on "hide".

Having withdrawn

Into one's self

Deepening roots

Evolving inside out

I struggled with this prompt when I first read it.  It scared me. "HIDE". We hide when we are afraid. We need to withdraw and protect, but we can also be hidden by the Protector.  And sometimes we HIDE away for the most magnificent changes to take place from the inside out. The mystery of metamorphosis is hidden from us. We are amazed at the beautiful butterfly when it breaks out of its cocoon.

Tomorrow-Five Minute Friday

Tomorrow absent

Today is right now enjoy

Yesterday finished

I always have a plan for the next day and the following week.  It's much harder for me to plan for something years down the road.  Today I had a plan  to do so much to get ready for tomorrow, but the body is not feeling up to it. So here I am wishing I felt well enough to do more, but can I not still enjoy the stillness of this moment? It is time for r&r and perhaps even a nap. It is time being just in today.

RELIEF!! Five Minute Friday

What a fitting word for this time of year and the week I just finished. Here are my thoughts for this week's prompt.

Release of

Everything annoying & stressful 


It off one's shoulders


Freedom from burdens

Relief that winter is past. Spring is here. Relief that my observation at work is finished and so far the comments have been positive. Relief that computers can be fixed. Pleasure in greeting happy people, people who love to help and just be nice. Ah! Relief from the drudgery of life's monotony.

Five Minute Friday prompt "good"

I didn't know what to expect for this week's prompt, but was not surprised to see "good" as the prompt on this Good Friday.  I wrote an acrostic at the end, after the timer went off, so I will post that another time. Sometimes I wish the five minutes was more than five, but limiting it has its good points.  Here are my thoughts for this week.

"to be desired or approved of" is how "good" is defined.  There is always something good to be found no matter how hard we have to look. Many of us are looking harder these days in a world so ravaged by sin and chaos.

For some the definition has changed. What people say or think is good today would never have been labeled that years or decades ago. Perspective is everything and so there must be another definition for "good" other than how google defines it.

It is good and necessary to have clear, absolute standards, truths and morals. Otherwise where would we be?
