Five Minute Friday-See

Five Minute Friday 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 See. Happy Friday Divas!

Go:  It is a new year!  Just like with anything new, it is easy to see all kinds of opportunities and be hopeful for positive outcomes. As the days go by, January becomes September and life keeps circling.  Before we know it, our hopes seem like fantasies and all we can see is what is.

When one of my daughters asks me for something and I am either too busy to really consider a real response or I just want to put them off in hopes they will forget,  I will say “We’ll see“.  Please visualize eyes rolling when I tell them “We’ll see”. They have wised up to my tricks.  To them, “We’ll see” means a no is coming…just at a later date.

Sometimes they are spot on, a no really is coming.  Especially if you keep asking me or when you use a whine voice which feels like nails on a chalk board!!!  Ok deep breaths.  Other times, I really was too busy to consider a real response and I had plans to use whatever brain reserves I had left at a less chaotic time.

Think about it.  If we  get a “we’ll see” in life or if things don’t happen twitter-quick, we too assume the answer is no.  So we give up.

As usual for this time of year, our fitness classes have been packed out.  Ladies are determined to make some healthy changes and that is awesome.

My challenge to myself and all of you whether you come to our classes or not or even if what you are working towards is not health/fitness related…. don’t give up.

There is more going on than what you can see.

Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! Psalm 34:8


If you are in the Kernersville, NC area, join us for our newest bible study, Made to Crave by Lysa Terkurst. Right after Bible study, we will host our normal “Soulful Saturday” class! Come on and get your Praise and tone on!


  1. It was fun to come here. And I think my girl has picked up on my ‘tricks’ too. It is quite humbling and challenging to see what can be and lead myself and her in it! Visiting from FMF:) {I linked this same verse and others from Psalm 34 in my post AND I am just a little too far, say an ocean, for your classes…but I’m sure they would be FUN!}

  2. Great thoughts! Thanks for sharing!
