Tag Archives: fire


Bold, unscripted, unedited, and free.  It’s five-minute Friday.  Cuz that’s how we like it.


I like to remember what God has done for me.  It’s so easy to forget how many times he has healed my heart, my mind, my soul.  Remembering what God has done stokes the fires of faith.  A fire that I can pass on with the word of my testimony.  Testimony to his greatness and his Glory.  Testimony to his character and his love for me (and you).  Igniting the flames of passion in other’s hearts for God is what this Christianity thing is all about.  Walking through the trials and tribulations and coming out on the other side clean and fresh and new is something only God can make happen.  So remember, remember today and always what God has done for you.  Stoke the flames in your heart with the memories of how he held you in his arms that one time.  Pass that fire onto someone else so that they may know God’s love for them.  Because, that’s the point, right?

Sparkle- Day 3 of the Just Write! campaign

Welcome to day 3 of the Just Write! campaign here at Beauty in it’s time.  Mary Kathryn Tyson is hosting this campaign in an effort to get her creative juices flowing, and other people’s as well.  I have chosen to participate because I need a kick in the rear to get myself writing more frequently.  So,everyday that she does this she will give us a one-word prompt and we “JustWrite!” for five minutes without editing (note: editing for grammar errors is okay, just don’t do a total rewrite). We are not trying to craft masterpieces here, we are attempting to “Just Write!” and get the creative juices flowing. MK has offered to allow us to write in her comments section, or to put a link in her comments if we have our own blog to write in.



Bright lights, small city

I’m sure gonna write this ditty

Heaven’s hope

That I’m not a dope

I sure hope these lines are witty

Five  minutes

To open my mind

To sparkle and shine

In this heart of my mine

Praise God

In heaven above

Lo0king down with love

My heart’s on fire

My one desire

Is to not to shove

The sparkle out of my life

So please say “Hi”

After this ditty of mine

Or else, I  might whine

Just kidding

Boy this hard

Not trying for an award

Just to write these words of mine

Sparkle and shine

These words in line

In your heart and mine


Wow, I am not sure what the above is, but whatever.
