Five Minute Friday: Enough

The Gypsy Mama shares this great idea to write every Friday for 5 minutes on a topic.

Want to take five minutes with me and just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.



I can never quite get enough of my favorite foods: mashed potatoes, homemade tacos, orange chicken and rice

I can never quite get enough of trying to find new foods to cook or restaurants to try

I can never quite get enough of some of my favorite shows:  Chopped, Food network star, Amazing Race, etc, etc,

I can never quite get enough of being lazy on a summer morning, drinking coffee, and fixing a great little breakfast to enjoy out on the patio

How often though, do I seem to get enough of the things that really matter in life?

  • God’s Word – sure there are some days that I don’t want to put down that Scripture or Bible Study that I am wrapped up in, but it is often tempting to say, “Okay, it’s been enough time…I’ve got to do other things

  • Family – I love spending time with them, but how often would I rather be a recluse, looking over lesson plans or working on my college coursework, or ….have to work on that blog post, tweet, or new instagram upload.   I know there are times I put aside the important times with family and replace them with things that are way less important

Lord, give me the ability to know what things I need to put down so that I can be filled with ENOUGH of the things that mean most in life.  May I realize that there are some things I should never have enough of, the things I should desire MORE and MORE of each day…may I chose those with wisdom and discernment.

  1. Definitely hard to put the veg-out, entertainment things aside & focus on what really matters. That’s part of why I love these Five Minute Friday prompts so much! They are reminders to get back to what really matters 🙂
