   Can I tell you in five minutes if I have any experience with the word adore?  "Oh come let us adore HIm…" I hear that that in my head and on Pandora and in church. Do I adore Him?  If I go back to my relationships with earthly beings I see adore on the faces of my babies. They have it. They know how to do it. Adoration is in their DNA.

     Notice how my granddaughter looks at her grandfather. She studies him. She looks for cues to how she should respond. If he smiles she returns the smile willingly, without reservation.
   Can I learn how to adore my Savior from the example of a child?

I write on Fridays with a large group who inspire me. Only five minutes and without much thought to perfection. I write, prompted by one word that sends my thoughts to the keyboard and hopefully make sense.
   The five minute Friday folks are on vacation for the next two weeks. But I will do my own prompt word and be back to muse and try my hand at five minutes of writing every Friday.


  1. I'm your neighbor over at FMF. That grandbaby is ADOREable!!!! (a misspelled word here is perfectly acceptable!).

  2. Beautiful picture of your granddaughter! I agree that her eyes are filled with adoration for her grandfather. Yes, we can definitely take a lesson in studying and learning to imitate the One we adore!

    Stopping by from FMF. Merry Christmas!

  3. LIttle Children, with their pure and close relationship with, and recent connection to, God are the best teachers. Your little granddaughter is so adorable and beautiful.

  4. You're right, children are excellent examples of sincerity and adoration.


  5. I should probably be sorry for the word usage but that photo is adorable! (See what I did there?) Such a great illustration of your written words today. Be well!

  6. Oh my, what a wonderful photo and what an absolutely wonderful observation about baby's responses. Loved your post.

  7. I think we can learn so much from the little people, the first of which is to remember how we lived when we were one of them. Your grandbaby looks like you. :)
