Five Minute Friday — Crave

It’s time to carve out a new chapter for the week. The prompt has been given — CRAVE. My thoughts have been organized {as much as they can}. My fingers are awaiting commands from my head, heart and soul. The timer has been set. Soon I’ll craft the post. Next will be posting the post, then joining with my writing friends at Kate’ place (http://katemotaung.com/2016/12/01/craving-connection-a-new-book-five-minute-friday-crave/). Finally, the most important step, reading what my lovely friends have shared. I hope you can join us too. You’re welcome as a guest and super welcome as a contributor!

Let’s GO…

Some people crave fame and fortune. I don’t. I’ll settle for being comfortable in my own skin and trust in the Lord for my needs.

Some people crave attention. I don’t. I would much rather be in the background.

Some people crave the limelight. I don’t. Give me a quiet day at a quiet place with family and/or good friends and I’m happy. And I’m just as happy with a quiet day at a quiet place by myself.

Some people crave power. I don’t. I’m content with doing my job as faithfully as I can, knowing my little contributions are part of a greater plan.

Some people crave self-fulfillment. I don’t. My fulfillment is serving … my God … my family … my friends … my community.

Some people crave constant, instant gratification. I don’t. I cherish the surprises and anticipation of life {even when they don’t go as planned}. Each moment is a new adventure. … STOP

… I don’t have to plan it out.

I guess, in short, I simply crave living my life as best I can and wrapping myself in everyday blessings — seen and unseen.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: In difficult seasons, remind yourself God is still on the throne. Just because the grass looks dead, doesn’t mean it will never be green again.

    Joe,
    I drove by DBT yesterday. It was operating as usual seems to be standing and prospering. I suppose the wrecking ball will wait.
    Money who knows but , I will send you my drive by video. Something about that place…. Don Bosco still in our hearts.
