Five Minute Friday – Friend

Here’s this week’s installment of Five Minute Friday. You might remember the task is to write for five minutes on a specific prompt word. The initiative was started by Lisa-Jo Baker ( who thought about writing and how often our perfectionism gets in the way of our words. And she figured, why not take five minutes and see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing.

This week’s prompt is FRIEND.

So, the timer is set … so here goes. {clock starts now}

It sounds simple. After all we all know about friends and Friends. We have friends throughout our lives, but Friends are harder to come by. Capital Friends are those people who know you maybe even better than yourself. They are there unconditionally.

Karen had a couple of special Friends. They were tuned in to each other. They connected with each other from 1,000 miles away when either needed some reassurance.

You’re fortunate to find one or two special Friends. I have a couple. Although I may not see them every day or every week or even every year, I know they would drop everything to have my back. They know instinctively when I need a push or a challenge or a stern talk — all given in love. They can finish my sentence.

They are the reflection of … STOP

a bigger Friend, Jesus. I hope I am, too … to them.

Well, that’s what popped into this mind this week.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Only one who can see the invisible can do the impossible.
