Five Minute Friday — Broken

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. I’m proud to be one of them and look forward to reading what others write. It’s always a treat reading different interpretations on a common word.

Hundreds of bloggers take part each week, but there was a bump in the road this week. Lisa Jo’s website was sooo popular it crashed! Undaunted, she moved the exercise to her Facebook page,

This week’s prompt is BROKEN.

Here goes. The timer is set for five minutes {clock starts now}

We live in a broken world. Lisa Jo’s web site crashed … it broke. Yesterday, my brake line sprung a leak(s). It was broken. Toys and trinkets break. Our bodies age … broken. Even our spirits can be broken … but only if we let it happen.

Our Lord’s body was beaten and battered … broken. But He rose from His grave and opened our earthly brokenness to new life … one without ache or pain or breaks or punctures.

It’s our faith. It’s our promise. We just have to remember to listen to the Coach and follow the game plan. STOP

Well, that’s it.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: The best way to convince a man he is wrong is to let him have his own way.
