Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Five MInute Friday: Beyond

I have found this lovely new place to free write and you know...sometimes that is very important for a writer...especially when your well is dry.  That is how Lisa-Jo found me.....and I found her.....knee deep in the water and dying of thirst.  How about you?  In Lisa-Jo's own words, "It’s #FiveMinuteFriday free write time!  Where a flash mob of folks spend five minutes all writing on the same topic and then share ‘em over here.  Want to know how Five Minute Friday got started and how to participate? All the details   are here. And every week I’ll pick a post that caught my eye and share it down there in my side bar – see where it says “Featured Five Minute Friday”? Yea -that could be you!  Because, as we all know, the most important rule of Five Minute Friday is leaving an encouraging comment for the person who linked up before you. So getting to feature one of your fine posts is like frosting as far as I’m concerned.  So, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

OK, are you ready? Please give me your best five minutes on:::


Beyond my back yard is a pasture with horses grazing on the grass directly behind my house.  Beyond my back yard is a house where Celia and Chris live.  She has been helping me this week cut out 150 fish for VBS and then we modged podged a box for a drawing her son Will's baseball team is having on Saturday.  The prize is 100.00 and I really hope I win.  Beyond my front door is my husbands scroll saw shot where he has made me a crafting corner with a folding table he bought for me at Wal-mart this week.  I call it Karen's Korner...wonder why?  Beyond today is Saturday and I am going to take soup to a dear friend who has breast cancer.  She is going through radiation and does not have much appetite....she brought me soup when my mom is a good comfort food.  Behond me sitting here right now is a television playing the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.  This is my favorite part of the who shebang.  Beyond this world is heaven and this week we buried one of our beloved church members, Mr. Laurice.  He was one of the sweetest men I have ever met and so very funny.  He will be sorely missed....but I will see him  and all my loved ones again someday....beyond.  Beyond is what is coming.  Something not done or seen has not happened....and beyond five minutes and I will be posting this blog and be done with my five minutes of free writing.

See you next Friday!  I am headed over to link up with Lisa-Jo and all the others.  Have a wonderful weekend.

You got a lot said in those 5 minutes. Sorry about your friend with breast cancer and Mr. Laurice.
I enjoyed the ceremony last night.
Glad I taped it since I fell asleep for part of it :)
