Today I am linking up with Lisa-Jo and company for the 5 Minute Friday. This is where I am given a word prompt and get to write, for just five minutes, without worrying about perfection. I love what has been flowing out of my heart during these writing exercises.
Today’s Prompt: Perspective
Life is what you make of it.
Look on the bright side.
Live life to the fullest.
Filled to the brim.
Overflowing with a thankful heart.
I am learning to see life a different way. There is an exchange that takes place in my heart when I take my eyes off of my circumstances, and choose to focus on the good. Although not always seen, this good is there. Sometimes lurking amongst piles of dirty dishes, or buried like treasure below mounds of laundry that has yet to be folded.
They say life is all about how you see it. Yet with my human eye what I see is clear to me. I am learning to look much deeper to find the glimmer in each day. Hope always springs forth. Hope is blooming in my heart.
Lord, open my eyes to see Your beauty which is all around me. Help me to focus my attention on You, and not on my circumstances. May I begin to see with your perspective, and with a heart overflowing with joy and gratitude.
