Five Minute Friday Jan 31 – Hero


Wow Heroes

My Heroes

What do you think a hero is?

Someone that can save the world from the ice freezer like on Batman, or the cowboy

rides up and just whisks her

away to the sunset, like#howmanywesterns EVER!!

I feel that a hero is someone who perseveres through all odds.

Major car accident that cripples your body for life, lose a son, lose a daughter, worked

your fingers to the bone so

we  could have everything we wanted and needed..

Was there when we got home in the afternoon (NOT SAYING those that aren’t are not heroes) this is about my

heroes, every game, every event, took us to church, Taught us about the MOST important Hero ever, God.

My parents.  I have never seen two people go through so much tragedy and still be so grounded in the Lord.   I am

so grateful my parents were the ones God gave me.  Their life prepared me for my life.   Thank you God!!

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and

mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you

and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger,

but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.  Ephesian 6:1-4

Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday (from Lisa’s Blog)

So, here’s the skinny: every Friday for going on four years now hundreds of people have joined a kind of writing flash mob over here.

We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that I post here at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FMFParty (It stands for Five Minute Friday Party).

No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.

Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

It started because I’d been thinking about writing and how often our perfectionism gets in the way of our words. And I figured, why not take 5 minutes and see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing.

So now on Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write without worrying if it’s just right gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes.

Your words. This shared feast.

It’s easy to join in, just:

  1. Check what the prompt is on my Lisa Jo Baker’s Blog.
  2. Write a post in only five minutes on that topic on your blog.
  3. {And if you don’t have a blog, no worries! Just leave your writing as a comment on my post}
  4. Link over to Lisa’s blog and invite friends to join in.
  5. Select the permalink to your post {so not your blog url but your post url }
  6. Using the blue linky tool at the bottom of Lisa’ Five Minute Friday post enter your link.
  7. It will also walk you through selecting which photo you want to show up in the linky.
  8. Your post will show up in our Five Minute Friday linky.
  9. Be sure and encourage the person who linked up before you!

Our most important requirement for participation: There’s really only one absolute, no ifs, ands or buts about it Five Minute Friday rule: you must 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.

  1. You said it so well! A hero is someone who keeps on fighting and trying and showing up no matter how hard it gets. And how wonderful that your parents are your heroes! It doesn’t get any better than that!
