Mom came in, All gingery smells. Wafting from the bin She carried in her arms. Gingersnaps. A boy wipes his hands Flour patterns to show The cookies are made His eyes all aglow. Sugar Cookies Mmmm.. the spices they rise And added they are a double amount for a favourite friend An old Dutch recipe from mom to girl Papernauten. Something old, something new What will a man make? How about a new marshmallow bake? Nutella use up, chocolate goodness share Fudge marshmallow squares.
The crew word prompt for the day is fireplace.
I have to admit it, I saw the word and thought, what am I supposed to do with that word?
I don’t know but lets see where it takes us eh?
Warmth Crackling embers A murmuring of voices. Popcorn Hot Chocolate Ginger Snap Cookies. Stockings? Plate for Santa, a Carrot for a Reindeer? Flames shoot Cool, quiet night. Snowstorm bursting outside. Poker ready Moving Logs over Making space for flickering flame. Bricks Mortar cracking The Flue is opened wider. Warmth Crackling embers A murmuring of voices. Fireplace.

Some kind of different
The name of book
Popped into my head
Like drawn to a nook.
This year is almost ended,
Memories I find.
Come to the forefront
As this poem comes to mind.
I search for the words
To convey what I feel
Traditions I ponder
What makes Christmas Real?
Advent candles at home?
Readings to make?
Cookies and treats
Visit home shall I take?
What about trees,
Villages and lights?
Christmas is filled
with so many delights!
But really let’s think
What makes Christmas true?
It’s all of God’s action
What HE meant to do.
This morning we read
About the “Great Fall”
It didn’t surprise him
Not one bit at all.
All in God’s plan
His glory to show
To all of his people
Who Struggle below.
God’s mercy shines forth
In the work of his Son
By one great act of mercy
Satan’s plan was undone.
To make Christmas real
Beyond Santa’s and gifts
Consider this fact
Belief in God NOT MYTHS!
So join me today As some kind of different we find To make Christmas matter To whom we are twined.
Kate, the proprietor of the Five Minute Friday community, invites us weekly to come join her for a Five Minute Word Prompt. We gather the world over to share our thoughts over one word. Encouraging each other along the way. Won’t you come join us?

Guess what we did yesterday?
We put up the Christmas tree, so….now we have coloured lights shining off a tree in our living room. 🙂
One of these days I will do up a post show casing some of our favourite ornaments eh! 🙂
But for now:
Christmas Tree Christmas Tree Oh you bring back memories. As I consider What gift to give As tree wrapping time I thought about A move we'll make Out of our home. I thought of The dastardly squirrels and how they annoy us so. I thought of slingshots and traps Of a boy running while GO AWAY squirrel Those shouts still echo And bring back smiles of memory Our town is known for a Certain white beast A nemesis of mine!
White squirrel abundant Garden it eats! Babies galore but Smiles it brings Smiles of memories of a boy's caring heart So this year when an ornament Considered... Every year A New one he receives This year A white squirrel he sees!
Today, oh, if I could explain the joy in my heart with connections made today. It’s a very good thing. 🙂
If only the Lonely Tonight I had a treat Two friends connected Two .. can you believe it? The life of a pastors wife Ain’t always easy Who to trust is hard to figure. Real life friend Known since college days Love her dearly On-line Friend Learning more weekly Love her dearly These people THESE PEOPLE Keep me sane. Knowing that trust, Feeling the love, God placed. I firmly believe it God, knowing my aloneness, Gave me two friends online, Friends that care, Friends that connect, Friends that pray. If only the lonely, ..... Had friends like these.
Well it’s a party of a group of like minded folks who gather on Friday
to do a five minute free write around a singular word. AND THEN (and
this is the most important part) we take the time to offer up
encouragement to each other on this writing journey. It’s fun, though
it’s not always easy, but it is always good. Come join us won’t you?
You are always welcome.

Today’s Five Minute Friday word prompt is the word Breathe.
Don’t know what Five Minute Friday is all about? It’s all about community gathering around a single word, sharing our thoughts in a five minute free write. Just letting that word soak into our brains and letting that single word spill out onto the screen in front of you. Then.. after linking up… taking time to do what I love doing… encouraging others who are spilling out as well. 🙂
So today… shall we breathe together?
