Unknown-five Minute Friday's December 18th posting

Ok, I am over a week late on this one, but could not decide what my one word prompt should be. After letting it stew for the past week or so, I decided on the above- "Unknown" because so much of life is unknown and what are we to do? I hope this encourages someone that there is Someone who knows more than you or I do.


we don't know what to expect 

tomorrow is never foretold or guaranteed

it can be filled with pleasure or pain

it can be an end or a new beginning

if we knew, the mystery would disappear

anticipation and hope would be gone

we can only hope for what we do not see

and so we face the great unknown

unknown to all, but a King of Kings

who conceals it in His hands

we cannot fathom or imagine 

living where all is clear as can be

we are surrounded by too many clouds 

the King will guide us into an unknown destiny

here or there or anywhere

Reflect Five Minute Friday

the moon, a mirror

a friend, yourself

the act of showing

and telling again

showing another

or realizing oneself

more details clearly seen

something new or

different we absorb

we realize, we pause

we sleep on it and

then we decide

the process produces

life that is brighter

and fresher

makes more sense when

we take time to reflect

Season-Five Minute Friday

New seasons come and go

Some last longer than others

It can be the bursting forth

of new life and cool breezes

to awaken our souls and

call us to come outside

venture deeper and deeper

to explore more, or

the biting winds of winter

frosted over windows and

wood stoves to call us inside

The heat of summer and warm,

washing, water falling from heaven

or the dance of leaves in the fall

No matter what season

it sends us forward to forage

for what we need to live, but

also so we can thrive

Seasons change, but so do

you and I
