A Late Five Minute Friday – Common


Joining with Kate at Heading Home

For five minutes of free writing.
“This is meant to be a free write, which means:
no editing, no over-thinking,
no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
Just write.”

Finally thoughts began to jell

Today’s Prompt – Common

go

Where have all the friends gone?
For years we have clicked and friended
person after person.

All we knew was that we both liked
flowers and hearts
kittens and puppies
sunsets and oceans
reciptes and knitting patters
kids that do funny things
old people still in love
moms trying really hard to be good moms.

Once in a while we would find
they liked “___________________”
and we would think “OH!”
and pass on.

Now we have found our friends deepest and darkest secrets.
Has this changed the common ground
we built our firendship upon?
Does this mean we are no longer freindly?

A definition of common
adjective,
1.belonging equally to, or shared alike by, two or more or all in question:

Can we agree on one more thing?

Two weeks ago
our country needed prayer and to turn our hearts toward God.
That has not changed.
Let us add to our prayer now.
Lord, help our friendships to stay strong.

 

suzy-hands

Matthew 18:19-20
Again I say unto you,
That if two of you shall agree on earth
as touching any thing that they shall ask,
it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I in the midst of them.

stop

Thank you, Suzy, for your dear picture.

  1. Hi from #75 The photo is so beautiful, hands can speak volumes. Our commonalities will be the thing that helps us recover from this election drama. Your observations about the accumulation of our social media friendships is very insightful.

    • Thanks for your kind words. The picture is of my friend, her mom, grandmother and her sister (I think her sister) and I love it, too.
