Breathe, in .... out

Today's Five Minute Friday word prompt is the word Breathe.

Don't know what Five Minute Friday is all about?   It's all about community gathering around a single word, sharing our thoughts in a five minute free write.   Just letting that word soak into our brains and letting that single word spill out onto the screen in front of you. Then.. after linking up... taking time to do what I love doing... encouraging others who are spilling out as well.  :)

So today... shall we breathe together?

..... Go....

in .....out

It's the way it works
One takes a breathe in
One releases that breathe.

In come the good
the needed
Out goes the old
The used.

So to is life you know
You breathe in what's around you
What you read
what you see
what you focus on

and out it comes.
Question is
What comes out.
Is is a reflection of 
what you see
what you read
what you focus on?

Or is it somehow different?
Is it better?
Is it worse?

We are told in the scriptures that
what is the heart of man
Comes out on a man's tongue.

What is on your tongue?
Does it show what you are breathing in?

Come today.
Think on what you are breathing in
Is it good?
Is it edifying?
Is it right?
Is it useful?

Think on these things.
As you,

  1. Your words remind me of how much else happens as we go about living and breathing. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad to be your neighbor at Kate's place. Happy Friday.

  2. much more. Thanks for stopping in. :)

  3. Lovely words! And a great reminder to be aware of what we are "breathing" in all day long. Have a wonderful day!

  4. Great post! It's so important to breathe in goodness and mercy and all of that so that our tongues reflect the same.

    1. thanks Barbie. :) It is indeed.

  5. What a great take on the word Breathe, Annette! So much truth here. We must guard our hearts and minds and be careful what we put into them. They will always give us away, won't they? May we breathe in those things that will point others to Jesus. :)

    Great post!

  6. If anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think on these things - breathe them in and out, and become more like Christ!

  7. I was going to say exactly what Carol said, thanks so much for your sweet perspective! Andréa

  8. This was fabulous, Annette! Thank you. - Lori
