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!
The fingers of dawn stretched across the morning horizon,
The colors stretched out all pink, orange, and pale yellow.
The sky lit up slowly at first and then revealed its glorious blue for all to see.
In the middle of the dawning were whispers of love,
Words, pictures and reminders of all the day would make known to those who were watching.
Whispers that repeated “because I love you“!
Fall yellows, golds and burnt orange begin to bloom and provide a backdrop for the morning sky
The bright blue reflects the beauty of leaves that are just waiting to dance their way to the ground
And the whisper repeats-this is because I love you!
As seasons change, as your life matures, as relationships deepen, as whispers become clearer – it all points to Him..
All of nature shouts in unison to echo the whisper-I made this all for you because I love you!
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63:2-4
God’s blessings wrapped in the natural beauty of our world is such a gift. May you notice the loveliness and hear the whisper today and everyday!

We are kindred spirits my friend! God’s beauty wrapped up in His truths speaks louder than the busyness of our world and causes us to pause and take notice. I wish I always had a camera with me for these snapshots of grace. Have a beautiful weekend!
