FMF: Share

It’s been a while since I joined Five Minute Friday.  It’s been a while since I blogged at all, too.  I’ve been busy working on web design projects and other things, but I’ve missed taking time to write.  I thought the best way to get back in the swing of things would be to jump in feet first with Five Minute Friday.  Next week, maybe I can join the #FMFParty on Thursday night, too!  (If you haven’t, you should…the bloggers who gather each week are so fun!)

Today’s word is: SHARE.

Here goes:



I sip my coffee, and in the silence that only naptime brings, I close my eyes and remember.  Hot days and hot chai and the simplicity of sharing both.  Sharing life.  Being connected to others in more than a casual see-you-on-Sunday-and-promise-to-pray-for-you way.

Because that’s what real fellowship is.

We don’t just fellowship in the fun.  “Fellowship” should be about more than pot luck dinners and ice cream socials.

It’s about more than the meet and greet.

It’s about connected hearts and united spirits.

Taking time to truly fellowship with someone sends the most important message we can give:

You are SO LOVED.

By me.

By my Father.

He sought you out, and so do I.


If you’d like to help us let women around the world know they are SO LOVED, buy one of our adorable t-shirts at !  The shirts are perfect gifts for people in your life you’d like to let know how much they’re loved, and the proceeds help us provide skills training and economic development opportunities in Kenya (and hopefully here in MS soon, too!).    We desire for everyone to know that “God SO LOVED the world that he gave his one and only son…”  Join us?  (The fund ends Friday, January 30 so be sure to order soon!  Short sleeve, long sleeve, women’s slim fit, youth sizes and sweatshirts available!)  Learn more about Merchant Ship Ministries!
