This is the first time I am writing in the Five Minute Friday group. Don’t have a clue what I am doing really, but I’ll figure it out!
It helps having reference points that were left by my father. He describes the Five Minute Friday’s like this and I have to admit, I too already… ummmm fudged “the rules” a little.
“…it’s a chance for a group of dedicated writers to get together weekly to write on a one word prompt for five minutes. Nothing fancy. Nothing too deep [unless that’s the direction we writers are convicted to do]. Technically, no edits — including spelling and grammar — although I’m sure we all fudge on that one. I know I do. When I just let my fingers wander, they often can’t keep up with my free range mind and the gibberish on the screen needs deciphering. And we do it all in five minutes! [Well, that’s the goal, although I’ve been known to go a tad beyond at times.]“
So, without further ado… my very first Five Minute Friday post – TIME.
It’s an interesting concept the construct of time.
We enjoy time, lament time, take time, waste time.
We govern our lives by time. Try to do things in time on time, after a time or even just in time. We schedule time. Morning time, night time, work time, play time,
…my favorites are nap time and coffee time.
When we are young we are oblivious to time. As we grow older, we take time for granted, waste time, become pressed for time, and in time wonder where the it has gone.
There are times we look forward to, dread, miss, remember times that brought us joys and sorrows…
…and yet, the mystery of time eludes our understanding.
There is, however, one most glorious time.
An underappreciated time.
A time that stills for a time.
…when you realize that all the mysteries, wonders, glory, truths and promises believed in from the Creator of time, are about to be revealed to a loved one whose hand you hold, who’s tears you shed
as you feel their heart beat,
…for the last time.
dedicated to the man who means so much to so many. we love you, miss you. we have been so incredibly blessed to have known you.
