Five Minute Friday: Bloom

Today is Friday and I am joining others in writing, even though I don't feel like it. But that's the beauty of this group of spontaneous writers. We are doing it just for the sake of it. No worries about what or why or how. Just putting down what comes to mind when we read the prompt.

Check it out for yourself, here.

The prompt for today is BLOOM


I haven't written for a while because I've been too annoyed at myself. At all that whining and grumbling and feeling sorry for myself.

Ever heard someone say or have you read where someone got "blooming" angry?

Flowers naturally bloom after they've been planted and nurtured to the point where they can open up in their full glory. But unlike flowers, my anger and frustration weren't so pretty. Or encouraging, etc.

And having emptied out a bunch of the yuck in a very painful process of prayer and counseling and wisdom gleaning from scripture and other helpful sources, I feel less angry. But I feel tired. And empty.

Maybe like some freshly plowed ground?

Now I need to plant something good and nurture it, so I can get some Philippians 4:8 things to bloom in my heart and mind.

Five Minute Friday


  1. I get that whole not writing thing in awhile...the writing even when we don't want to! Good job on just getting out there and doing it! :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Rachel. And thanks for stopping by.

  2. your transparency is refreshing, I know I have felt this way recently as well, but didn't know how to word my feelings. God used your words on this blog to refresh and redirect my heart. You worded it just right!! and on another thing you are right...we need to fill the empty spaces with His truths now, so you (and I) can truly bloom!!! It is a good reminder to always fill up on His word...which is hard to do sometimes when we are tired from being emptied. It seems much easier to sleep! LOL! Praying for you!!!

    1. Thanks, Maria. Always good to know I'm not alone. :) Praying for you, too!

  3. Oh, yes! I do understand the blooming angry. I'm so glad you were able to process it, and I have no doubt the seeds will be fruitful.
