Five Minute Friday |Ache

5 Minutes| No Editing| Writing Prompt: Ache


I have come to understand a few more things lately.

I believe that’s a good thing.

After all, the Bible does say, “In all thy getting, get understanding.”

Forgiveness is the thing I understand, today.

You see it’s rather easy for me to forgive you, her, him and them.

When it comes to me, the task becomes a bit more difficult.

Because I believe that somehow I’ve failed.

And that is precisely the reason it’s so important.

Forgiveness is not a recommendation.

Forgiveness is a requirement.

Forgiving me.


I stumbled on Five Minute Friday this morning, by way of Paula@ Grow where you’re planted. I think it was the one word prompt that lured me in. This is the first time I actually published something I wrote without going back and fixing this or tweeking that. It’s Freeing.

You have to try it. Click on the badge and go for it. You’ll thank me.

Thanks Paula!

Thanks, Lisa-Jo!

Be Blessed!

  1. This issue of being able to forgive myself is exactly what leads to all of my aches, Taylor! And you are so right… it's much easier to forgive others than to forgive ourselves. So glad you linked up. 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Welcome to Five Minute Friday. Pretty soon you'll find yourself staying up late on Thursdays just to see the prompt word 🙂

    And I loved these lines:

    Forgiveness is not a recommendation. Forgiveness is a requirement. Forgiving me.
