5 Minute Friday

What can you do in 5 minutes?  Empty the dishwasher or put away the clean clothes that have been sitting on top of the dryer for a week?  Or you can sit down and write!!
Head over to the Gypsy Mama and check out all of the'll be blessed.  If you want to do one of your own, the rules are simple:
Five Minute Friday1.  Write for 5 minutes flat: no thinking, spell-checking, or editing required (don't worry, we won't judge you).
2.  Link your post to 5 Minute Friday for others to enjoy.
3.  You MUST visit the poster before/after you and leave an encouraging comment.

That's's topic is GRASP- Ready, set....


There are a lot of things in this world which are out of my grasp.  Wealth, fame, and a perfectly clean house just to name a few.  I try to work myself into a frenzy to just grasp ahold of a piece of the American Dream.  The result:  ulcers and a bunch of clutter in the house I've tried to keep perfectly clean.

Then I realize, the only thing in this life worth my time and effort is the act of reaching up to grasp the hand of the One who gave His life for me.  At the end of this life, my grasp to His hand is all that really matters.  If I'm not holding onto Him, hands clenched tightly, I have wasted the life He paid such a dear price to save.

   Lift up your head, dear one  
   Grasp tightly to My hand.
   When the day is finally done,
   I'll lead you into the Promised Land.
