Present...The Gift I Long For..Five Minute Friday

It's that time again…Five Minute Friday…linking up with Lisa-Jo and so many other amazing word weavers.

The challenge is to use the word prompt of the day to write for five minutes flat - no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking…just 'five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right."

Present...

Go...


Thinking ahead...
looking ahead...
planning and looking forward to the exciting adventures of tomorrow.

Dreamers dream...
Schemers scheme...
Planners plan...

Anticipating future events can be exciting. 
But what about the here and now? 

The present...

Being in the now.  Total awareness of who you are with and what you are doing.

Give me the gift of being present
Listen to my words.
Look into my eyes.
Laugh with me. Cry with me.
Feel with me.

Just be present.


If I could choose your gift to me, it would be...
the gift of your presence.

Just be present.

If we take the time to be present, every minute of everyday...
the dreams...
the schemes...
the plans...

those will become the present...
the gift we give as we live...

In the present.

Are you fully present?
...as you walk with your child
...as you talk with your love
...as you listen to the voice of God, read HIs word, walk in obedience....

As you live...each…day.








This is the day which the LORD has made;  we will rejoice and be glad in it. ~Psalm 118:24 

                                    Now it's your turn!   

1. Write for 5 minutes flat - no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you &encourage them in their comments
Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community...
