Five Minute Friday - Catch

Today's Five Minute Friday's word is change.


I went, humbled by the gift of answered prayer and unconditional love. I went simply wanting to receive what He had for me - trying hard to set aside my own agenda. He went before me, and from the very first moments he whispered, "Catch."

Catch the wonder of relationships formed with words becoming warm hugs, beautiful smiles and anointed words.

Catch the beauty of my creation - the wonder of My Artist's heart.

Catch the words of wisdom and knowledge so generously shared.

Catch the joy of simply knowing that I am here.

Catch the spark that I want to ignite in your heart.

Catch the quiet of the still, small voice.

Gather it all and then give it back to me that others might catch the glory and the wonder of who I am.


Joining Lisa-Jo and the other beautiful hearts at Five Minute Friday. Come join us.



  1. A beautiful snapshop of your time at Laity, Linda.

  2. Very nice; so glad you got to go and I can tell you had a wonderful learning experience.

  3. You seem to have caught it well!

  4. Lovely, lovely Linda! That must have been a life-changing experience for youu! My brain just isn't working well these last few weeks - I finally got a new post up, but there is nothing "well written" about it that I can see - "just the facts, ma'am," as Sergeant Joe Friday used to say!

  5. You have become quite good at both catching and throwing to others (and you throw in such a wonderful way that we can't help but 'catch it'). :>)

    Loved the Aunt Fanny story---great balance to the story and you told so much with few words than a lot of folks would take: a gift indeed.

    Sounds like when it came to you, she saw things half-full--you were a positive for her.

  6. I love playing catch -- but never thought about all the different ways i can play catch.

    How about playing catch with smiles? Someone smiles at you, you smile at them. "Catch this"


  7. So glad you got caught!

    And thank you for the sweet comment you left at my blog. You are such an encourager!

  9. Lovely. The poem wells up with emotion as you read along.
