I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “more.” We would love to have you join us.
Today is a good day. The sun was shining. It’s now gone behind the clouds but it’s almost 30 degrees above zero. Luna and I went for a 30 minute walk. We are both so tired of winter. There might be more snow coming this weekend, but for now I’m going to focus on this glorious day.
Luna is napping. I’m watching Jeopardy. I need to write on more Facebook walls as I continue to pray through my FB friends list for Lent. It’s such a joy and I couldn’t ask for more. My friends trusting me with their prayer requests. It’s amazing to look back and see how previous prayers have been answered.
This week has been hard too. The first anniversary of Ben’s death. It feels like it was just yesterday. So bittersweet. I miss my friends and want to see them more. Especially after this past year. I need to be more intentional.
More love, less hate!
More joy, less sorrow.
I love how you weave ideas of “more” into everyday life. How often we say it, longingly or hopelessly. In fullness or seeking. Seeing friends more, dreading more winter, Joy and intentions. Thank you for helping me see my own dance with “more.”
More joy less sorrow is exactly what I wish for you!
Right?!?! Don’t we all!?!?
More love and joy and less hate and sorrow! Yes, that is my wish, too. What a blessing you are as you pray for your friends! May God comfort you in all the losses you have had and bring you joy and peace and blessings! Love and hugs! xo
Right?!?! Thanks! That is my hope that my prayers bless my friends. Love and hugs to you too friend! xoxo
Yes, more joy, less sorrow! I love your focus on praying for others during Lent!
This one thing I ask, my Lord
is more pain for me to bear.
Take it from those who can’t afford
it, and place it in my care.
Let me be the iron shield
that holds hell at bay,
and give me strength not to yield
until the final day.
There are those who’re hurting;
let them rest behind my back.
And let me keep divirting
the flames of Satan’s attack.
Lay on me the tortures of hell
for others; I will hold them well.
These are inspiring ideas, Tara: “More love, less hate! More joy, less sorrow.” The world would be a better place for prioritising these things. Your Lenten practice is such a beautiful self-giving one. Definitely a more than expression of care. May your own prayers be answered abundantly as you faithfully commit to praying for your friends’ needs. Blessings and love. xo
Yes indeed the world would be if we prioritized them more. Blessings and love to you too. xoxo
More and continuous healing.
Amen! To a year of healing!!!
