five minute friday: tree

Every Friday, a group of like minded individuals gathers over @thegypsymama’s to write unscripted, unedited masterpieces for the sheer joy of writing. The only hard, fast rule is to leave comment love on the blog prior to your own.

This week the word is tree.

GO

It all started with the memory of a tree in Africa, my missionary dream. The memory of that one acacia tree led to multiple adventures in the USA, Haiti, Uganda, Guinea, and Congo. It opened the door to the possibility of reaching out to people who need help. The dream of the tree has come full circle as I’ve come home and learned to reach out to people wherever I am. One little memory of a tree. How cool is that?

weekly photo challenge: habit

Habits. Everybody has them. I used to have some really bad habits, drunkenness, smoking, shopping. Thanks to Jesus entering my world 8 years ago, I’m happy to say those habits have long died. Now my habits are much better. Be sure to check out the weekly photo challenge to view other folks’ habits.
