Five-Minute Friday {YES}

Friday, looking at a bonus day extending the weekend.

Friday, with the weekly laundry to wash and groceries to buy.

Friday melting in to the Saturday when college football season finally returns and brings with it more yelling at people who, thankfully, can’t hear us but this is what we do when our favorite sport returns.

The end of the week that brings opportunities to linger over breakfast, a chance to play or being instead of doing for a while. A chance to come together with our faith community Sunday that always brings new grace.

A time to say no to the ‘should’ and YES to the unknown possibilities. To say YES to living wholehearted, weak and trembling, but learning we are made in the image of God and he is waiting to say YES to us.

Linking up with the weekly Five-Minute Friday blog party at Kate Motaung‘s place. Stop over and share your words on this weeks prompt.

More about Debby Hudson

Where do you find grace? Inside the church walls? Around the dinner table with your family? For years, grace was not much more than the prayer we said before meals or a biblical concept. Then I met a group of men who had, as we say, reached bottom. They welcomed me to Graceland. They showing me grace can be found in the darkest of places. I'm still searching and learning. I hope you'll want to come along.

    I love weekends too. It’s easier to hear and experience the rhythms of grace then, I think. Thanks, Debby. Stay blessed!

    It blessed me to read this and be reminded to think of the weekend this way. I felt my shoulders relaxing and my straight-across mouth becoming a smile. Life’s been too over-full around here lately, and wow, have those weekend breaks from the “should” ever been important! You’ve got me looking forward, too! Thanks.

    Love this! I’m going to look at this weekend in a new light. Even though we’ve got tons of chores, I’m looking forward to being with Frank as we work together.

      I postponed a couple of my ‘chores’ today, Annie. They’ll still be there 😉 Enjoy your time together!
