Five Minute Friday: Connected

I love Christmas.  One of favorite things to do is sit on the couch when the house is quiet, and stare at the Christmas tree. 

When it is lit.
Plugged in.
Connected to a source of power.

I can still enjoy it- the pretty ornaments, the handmade Popsicle stick reindeer, the picture ornaments of babies first Christmas' and memories from years gone by.  But, the tree just doesn't come to life- isn't as pretty unless it's connected.  But, when it is the lights add dimension, sparkle, glow, life to the tree.  

Much like me.

God blessed me with pretty eyes, okay hands.  Actually, He made me in His image so I know I'm okay.  Sometimes I even have a good hair day.  But it's all superficial. 

As a being with a soul, I come to life and really glow when I'm connected to my creator.  My source of all things.

Being connected to Him gives this being dimension and sparkle.  And hopefully, I am reflecting His glow to the world, who might not yet be connected.  

Every Friday I join Lisa-Jo over at thegypsymama for Five Minute Friday. She prompts us with a one word topic, and we stop, drop and write. We write bold and beautiful and free. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it's just right or not.

Click on the link above to enjoy and be encouraged by other bloggers' own 5 minutes of freedom. Any of us would love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for coming by!

Happy Friday Y'all!
