And so – we write for five minutes, our words tumbling out – no editing, no polishing – just flat out on a one word prompt! We gather all our beautiful thoughts here in our Five Minute Friday community and then love on each other as only we can do! Click here to learn all about it.

Home is where the Five Minute Friday community gathers so please join us at Kate Motaung’s for our Friday fun! We are always looking for new friends so come and join us. We gather Thursday evenings at about 8:30 PM EST on Twitter and you can find us using #fmfparty.



I crave quiet and the stillness of a new morning freshly waking the horizon with its array of colors

I love the chance to walk along a garden path discovering the surprises that have been left for me that day

I love the brightness of a full moon lighting the sky with its single, bright light and…

The call of the first bird waking from its nightly slumber sounding off to mark new beginnings.

Job 7-19

I listen to my rhythmic breathing and believe that being alone is where I am and who I am but then…

In the faintest of whispers my heartbeat is joined in a single cadence of pitter patters by the one who created me from nothing

The feeling of being alone vanishes as this whisper surrounds my being and never leaves me once throughout the day

My deep desire of being just me joins with the one who takes my hand and simply desires that I be with Him and in that moment I learn that I am never alone.

I am loved by the One who knows me, cherishes me and frees me to be me but always gently pulls me back to Him when I stray too far.

[Tweet “God promises that we He will never forsake us and we are never alone.”]

I am one person, one woman and one daughter of our loving Lord. I am never alone because I am His child and he walks with me every step of the way.

Job says…

Will you never look away from me,
or let me alone even for an instant? Job 7:19

Those of us who know God, who walk as His child and are redeemed by His grace, know that the answer is “NO”

… because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

My prayer for all of us tonight is that we know deep in our hearts that God will never leave us and we are never alone.

In grace and peace,
