Five-Minute-Friday.1Joining the Five Minute Friday community of bloggers today with a one word prompt. With a one word prompt we write for five minutes, unedited.

This week is Spring Break in Metro Schools — my workplace for over two decades, and I always looked forward to it ———-no matter the temperamental weather of a Middle Tennessee spring.hicynths.2

The sight of budding trees, early flowers poking through the dirt, thunder storms, and rising temperatures just lift my spirits, especially if in March.Jennifer bush

Sadly for me, spring often means an overload of pollen for allergies. Wednesday I served hotdogs in the local park for the church’s annual Easter egg hunt for all our neighbors. It was a beautiful day which meant after 45 minutes I was coughing and wheezing and heading for the indoors.

But no matter where I’m standing, spring break looked good. A break from the routine, time to catch up on sleep, reading, chores, or time to make more lesson plans.

Bonnie Gray has writes and blogs about spiritual whitespace that seems to be what I longed for on Spring Break. She has an online bookclub and you can read her blog at Faith Barista. Her words sink into a place in my heart and lift my spirit!

Today I thank God for

  • the rhythm of seasons and the rebirth after dormancy
  • time and space to absorb His goodness and mercy.
