If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Five Minute Friday: Empty



Today's Five Minute Friday Prompt is:  Empty.

Start

Is empty good or is empty bad.  I guess it all depends on what you're talking about.

 An empty to do list is a good thing.  That means you're caught up.

An empty jar of olives is a bad thing.  What am I going to put on my salad?  It also means it's time to go to the grocery again, which means my to do list is not empty anymore.

An empty laundry basket is a good thing.  But unfortunately mine is not empty so I need to do laundry after work.

An empty stomach can be a good or bad thing.  If I'm dieting, it's not good because I'm hungry, but probably can't eat what I want.  But if I'm not dieting it's a good thing because I'm hungry and have room to eat what I want.

So I guess empty is all in the eye of the beholder.

Stop.  Wow!  5 minutes can go really fast.

  3. Hey, I'm your FMF neighbor, where you wrote olives, I wrote Peanut M&M's ... I guess your diet is going better than mine! ;) Thanks for sharing your words this morning, and good luck with your laundry. I still have a loads worth that needs to be put away from last week, let alone the ones hiding in my laundry shoot (but if I don't look I can pretend it's empty right??).

  5. So many of these prompts can go in opposite directions, and this word was one of them. I enjoyed what you wrote : )
