Five Minute Friday ~ January 24, 2014 ~ Visit


Five Minute Friday
We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that I post here at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FMFParty (It stands for Five Minute Friday Party).
No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.
Unscripted. Unedited. Real.
It started because I’d been thinking about writing and how often our perfectionism gets in the way of our words. And I figured, why not take 5 minutes and see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing.
So now on Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write without worrying if it’s just right gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes.
Your words. This shared feast.
It’s easy to join in, just:

Every Friday~ the opportunity to join in flashmob of writers. All the information can be found by clicking the button above. The short version~ every Friday ~ a prompt ~ five minutes of unedited blogging shared ~

Now for this week's word: Visit

Visit

 ~ the word brings to mind something of short duration~ 
Visit a friend for the afternoon
Visit someone who is ill

A visit by a family member~ generally not of a long duration ~ often less time than hoped for, in some instances more depending on the circumstances.
Thankfully, visits for me fall into "not enough time... too brief" category.

A visit is a thing of wonder~ out of the ordinary day-to-day

As Larry Norman said "We're only visiting this planet"  which brings to mind Petra's "Not of This World"

If we only consider how fleeting our visits are~
 in the span of eternity they last less than the time it takes an individual snowflake to melt~

Make the most of your time, your visit here on Earth, 
Make the most of your time as you visit friends and family.

  1. Stopping by from Five Minute Friday. I love the "stream of consciousness" you have going here. :) Yes, our visit here is so fleeting and our time with others so precious. That's something the Lord has been reminding me of almost daily lately as I see our children grow and mature right before our eyes. We have some big milestones coming up in our home, so I'm waxing a bit nostalgic. Thanks for sharing!
