liluga - love isn't love until given away

"Loving God means doing what he tells us to do, and really, that isn't hard at all." 1 John 5:3 NLT

Today I am linking up with Five Minute Friday at The goal is to use the prompt she gives and simply write for five minutes on that topic. No editing or revising. Today's prompt is "Grateful".  Here it goes.....

I am grateful that after a long, cold (and I mean REALLY cold) winter, God brings us spring. Even though the trees and grass and plants remained dormant all winter long, they were never dead, just waiting for their time to come back to life. It was hard to believe winter would ever end.

Just like the trees of winter, so much is lying dormant inside of me. There is so much I want to do. I want to write more, serve more, be more and get past this winter season of my life. But it is not my spring time yet. God will bring on the season when the time is right. I know it is coming soon. I can feel it. And for that I am grateful.

OK, my five minutes are up. I have a lot more to say, but it would take me hours to sort it out in my head and put it to paper. That's part of the reason I don't write often:)

Five Minute Friday


  1. What a great reminder that God isn't done with us and we must be patient. Thank you for sharing your words today!

  2. When the vine feels it is spring, the husbandman checks the fence of the vineyard. I wish you a tremendous year!

  3. I understand the winter season of life. I can feel the spring coming too. Thank you for the reminder of the coming spring. I'm ready for blossoms, aren't you? I'm visiting from FMF.
