TASTE AND SEE – Five Minute Fridays

Taste and See

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; 
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in him” (Psalm 34:8 NIV)

Today the first thing I saw was daylight peeking through the blinds. Six am. Time to rise.

Next I saw the rain starting to fall on the porch outside my office window. A blessing for the farmers as it has been dry this spring.

Then I saw a post about a blind woman – although she cannot see with her eyes, she has tremendous insight into herself and how she can function without eyesight. Janet Perez Eckles has written a best-selling book called Simply Salsa.

To see – is to look at something whether by our eyes, or ears, or by touch, taste, or smell. Can I use my senses to understand God’s world? Am I open to His leading?

The Bible says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.”

God’s gifts – if only I see them.

Prayer: Help me to see your gifts – using all my senses. Help me to be conscious of the needs and sensitivities of others. Help me to be aware of all that You have to offer. In Jesus’ name. AMEN.

Time is up.

What will I “see” today? What will you “see” today?

Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays. I am linking to the Gypsy Mama’s Five Minute Fridays. Today’s word is SEE.

We write because we love words and the relief it is to just write them without worrying if they’re just right or not. So we take five minutes on Friday and write like we used to run when we were kids.

On Fridays we write with gusto, unselfconscious and flat-out.

What can you write in five minutes flat? {—> click to tweet}.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on: SEE



  1. Have you ever looked at the hymns written by Fanny Crosby, a woman who was blind, and noticed how many times she references sight? She understood what you were saying, that “seeing” the Lord is far more than with our eyes. Thank you for visiting my post, too. Aren’t these Friday topics fun?

    1. Thank you for the information about Fanny Crosby – sight is more than eyes for sure. Yes, I love Five-Minute Fridays. I love meeting new people and seeing our connection with God. Awesome isn’t it?

I love to connect with you.
