Every Friday, Lisa Jo Baker hosts a blog link up called Five Minute Fridays. She provides a word prompt and then participants are to set their timers for five minutes and write until the timer goes off. The word for today is Together. Happy Friday Divas and here goes:
Some things just go better…together: milk and cookies, salt and pepper, macaroni and cheese, chips and dip.
When life happens we sometimes decide to hide within ourselves. We put our big girl panties on and face things alone.
Sounds noble…except alone can sometimes mean catching the train straight to Crazytown where our thoughts are all over the place and totally irrational.
Whether we would like to admit it or not, we need other people. We need “Sistas” who will give us a hug after a hard day, meet a need, tell us when we are out of line AND remind us to go to our true source of power and resolution…GOD.
Life is simply done better...together.
What I decided would be an eight week session three years ago, God transformed into a community of women of all different shapes, sizes, colors, ages and stages journeying through life together.
A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12 NLT
Who are the sistas is your life? Call one of them up today.
There is light and love in the sisterhood of community.
