This is a post that I am linking up at Lisa-Jo Baker's blog. She started something called 5 minute Friday, that I learned of through a blogger buddy, Lauren at The Thinking closet. Essentially, you write for 5 minutes unedited and with out critiquing yourself as you go along. I decided that I missed doing writing drills like this and decided to try this out today. If you are interested in doing the same, give it a try and then link up over there as well. It may bring out the hidden or dormant writer with in you! So the topic was one word- VIEW. So here is my 5 minutes on the word VIEW!
View, View, View, this is a hard one to think about because there are so many angles but I guess when I think of View, I kind of think of being up hi looking down, maybe on me. Not in a bad way just seeing me as I am. I think this is may be a view that God has for all of us. Being able to just see where we are and what we are doing. It is a supreme thought to have all of that power and control and not force his will on us but let us make our own decisions- in my opinion. It makes me feel great to know that no matter how many times I have screwed up- he is still there- looking down on me- looking at me and guarding me. He is greater than I will ever know and I am grateful to feel his love on me as I advance throughout the day. I wish that I could have more faith when the storms are there or the tornadoes or the lighting strikes but I know that his view of me is good and that he can fix things that I myself have broken inadvertently or advertently. this is a good view to have - one that can not be replaced- one that I hope to see clearer and appreciate more as the time goes on...to see myself as he sees me- with out spot or blemish- created in the image of his son- thank you Lord
