Five Minute Friday: Adore

(So, I’ve been participating in a “writers’ flash mob” of sorts called Five Minute Friday. In response to a one-word prompt, hundreds of writers sit down and write for five minutes flat. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font or punctuation; unscripted and unedited. Here’s today’s edition…setting the timer….)

Five Minute Friday: Adore


The world moves fast,

stealing our time,

wrapping us in the mundane.

When do we pause and adore?

When do we stop the world

and reclaim the awesome

or embrace the miraculous?

Dizzy with busy,

we “adore” everything

and yet nothing.

We “adore” that cute outfit

that new toy

that new restaurant.

Like Lisa Douglas we “adore a penthouse view.”

Is there time

to adore the sunset?

A child’s giggle?

A puppy’s pounce?

Do we take time

and reserve some of that adoration

for the Creator?

Come, let us adore him.

There’s time.

There’s time.

One thought on “Five Minute Friday: Adore

  1. This is beautiful! I also was thinking of the same song from this prompt. I think many of us were. This time of year and that one word… I pray we do take the time to adore Him. I know I need to intentionally take the time to focus on Him through all the busyness. Lovely words.

Thanks for stopping by! What are your thoughts on this?
