Five Minute Friday — Finish

It’s Friday and you know what that means. Time for Lisa Jo’s prompt ( five minutes of uninterrupted writing — transferring thoughts from my mind through my fingers to the screen for all to view. This week, I’m just jumping in.

The prompt is FINISH. The timer is set. It’s time to START

It is finished.

With bittersweet emotions, our writing horde was advised Lisa Jo is finished as moderator for this fabulous five minute writing adventure {effective next week}. She’s not giving up writing — heaven forbid — but after nearly four years, this chapter must be finished. It must come to a close.

And thus it goes. Life is a series of chapters. There are passions we have that ebb and flow. And while the core remains, sometimes, it’s necessary to turn the page and just say, it is finished.

It’s not just these weekly assignments. They are ably be turned over to Kate Motaung (  But it will be different. I suspect we’ll still gather and share and write. There will just be a different moderator perhaps taking us ever so slightly in a different direction.

I’m reminded of the words referenced above. It is finished. That’s what our Lord said as He expired on the cross. But we know it wasn’t the end of the story. It was the beginning of a new story … a story of hope and energy and peace {internal} and new life and salvation.

Our five minute forays gave us a chance to share our beliefs, our hopes, our thoughts, our dreams, our memories, our experiences … neatly — and sometimes … STOP

… not so neatly — packed in a five minute writing package.

I am grateful to Lisa Jo for allowing a senior male to join this remarkable “writing flash mob”. I think I sometimes contributed a different perspective to the prompt {or at least I hope I have} but I know I always received encouragement and enlightenment from my feminine writing friends. They made Five Minute Friday a welcome stopping place each week.

No, Lisa Jo. It is not finished. It is just beginning.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: A guy who hugs a lot is comfortable in his own skin.
