Five Minute Friday: Together

It’s Friday and that means it’s time to participate in another Five Minute Friday! In case you don’t know, Five Minute Friday is a movement started by Lisa Jo Baker, the Gypsy Mama, as she’s known, where bloggers sit down for five minutes and write what’s in their heart from a one word prompt.

Now Gypsy Mama probably knows what the correct punctuation should be in in the above sentence because clearly that’s what we call a run on. That just goes to show that that really I have no business hanging out with this #FMF crew. They’re all like ‘love, peace, dreams’ and I’m all like ‘Hey! Did I ever tell you about the time my Grandmom killed a snake with a mop?”  

That’s okay, though! It’s a fun experiment!

Tonight’s prompt for Five Minute Friday is Together

They have fancy blogs, these women I’m with. Um hmm. Super fancy! They are technologically savvy blogging rockstars. Well, rockstars  without all the pesky drugs and illicit activities.

Y’all! They know what widgets are! And buttons! They actually know how to add buttons to their blogs! They actually know what a button is!

Amy Lynn Andrews indeed. I bet all of these other women know how to add affiliate links!

The Gypsy Mama is all ‘let’s create community’ and I’m all ‘last week I acidentally pooted in the Target checkout line.’

But…I’m here. And we’re all together. And we write and we see where God leads us.

And I’m watching God use the monkey that is me to contribute to things that are larger than me and my world.

I’m watching the Lord knit us together for causes that are wild and crazy and way beyond our know how and it’s working! It’s actually working.

This togetheness.

And one day I’m going to know what a back link is. And one day I’ll learn how to embed a video. And yes, one day I’ll even know what a widget is! I mean, not today of course, but one day.

Until then though I’m stumbling through the wonder and the wilderness together with all the rest of these women. These women. Rockstsars together every one.

    A widget! lol

    You can always pay someone to take care of all that for you. I still have issues with my blog. My social media buttons are making me nuts. I try not to get blog envy! Hugs FMF friend!

    Ah, so funny!! Thanks for a great perspective. Right there with you on all the tech stuff! But your blog looks much more advanced than mine, so in my eyes YOU are the rockstar!!!

    You are so funny. I am so glad to have met you in real actual life, even though it was so short. I wish we had had more time to talk and connect. You’ve always been such an encouragement to me and I love how you’re so authentic. Because nobody wants to admit it was them, especially at Target. You had me dying laughing.
