Five Minute Friday: View

Get ready for an emotional Five Minute Friday post. I'm mourning the loss of someone I didn't even know. I probably should stop watching heartbreaking documentaries like this. Today's word prompt is View.


I own a couple bracelets that are green and purple. As I get dressed, I slide one on to support a little sweetie named Taylor Hall. She has really opened my eyes to the world of childhood cancer.

Their stories inspire. I wish I could revise the words on their pages to make them not have to battle so hard. It really changes your view. Suddenly you're thinking, "I don't want to wait until that's me. I need to tell all of the people in my life that I love them. Before it's too late."

God takes so many good people away from us. It is a part of His omniscient plan. I'm not sure we will ever understand why. 

Did He need them more?
Was their time on earth really finished?
It's hard to let go.

The truth is we aren't invincible. Our time is limited.

"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." Psalm 90:12

Five Minute Friday


  1. I know what you mean about mourning people you don't know. I think that God puts those people on this earth to remind us all of how precious our lives are.

  2. Our time is SO limited. But he truly does have an omniscient plan. Thank you for using such a rich word in your discussion. It is hard to let go but we go do it if we, to be cliche, let go and let God.
