Five Minute Friday: Adore


adoration-of-the-shepherds-guido-reniI’m like the poor shepherds, sitting with the flocks, of little value. I know, nothing is mine. All comes from You.

It is so easy for me to stay sitting on the hillside, so easy to be stuck, so easy to distract myself with things that are important but not ultimate.

So You send angels who sing out: “Come see!”

Their beauty is overwhelming; I can’t resist.

And there You are: Glory constricted into an infant’s flesh, swaddled helplessness, placing Yourself in my hands though my hands cannot hold Infinity.

Your tiny finger grasps mine, holds me up. Forever will I adore You.


Every Friday,100s of bloggers set a timer, write for 5 minutes, and then publish the results. We don’t edit or engulf ourselves in concerns about whether our writing is worthy to be seen. We expose our incomplete, unpolished thoughts and words to each other and our readers. Kate Motaung’s, at  Heading Home, provides the prompt on Thursday evening. We all link our posts there and tweet them with the hashtag #FMFParty. Join us.


  1. Visiting as your FMF neighbor. I like the post … short, sweet and to the point. We’re all in His hands, hanging on to His tiny fingers. I pray for a Merry Christ-centered Christmas and a Happy, Holy New Year!

Tell me what you think. Thanks.
