Five Minute Friday: Open For Business

Linking up with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. Today’s word is “Open.”


It was -11 degrees this morning when Rommie and I rolled out of bed – that was before factoring in the wind chill.

Superintendents announced schools would be closed Thursday and Friday on Wednesday afternoon.

While “closed” describes schools, “open” describes businesses.

Even though sub-zero temperatures have “Frozen” Northeast Ohio, employees must report to work. Roads are icy and there are numerous accidents on every freeway, but businesses are open. 


Are you that greedy that employees must risk life and limb to come to work?

The wind chill advisory is over at noon, so have your employees leave for work at noon if your business must be open.

The world will not fall apart if your business closes for one day.

Open your heart and let love pour out all over your employees. As you take care of them, they will take care of you.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

John 13: 34 – 35

  1. Amen. Even here in New Mexico, we sometimes get days in which getting off the mesa is downright dangerous. That’s after the dirt road one must deal with before reaching pavement.

    I think God must live in Key West. I would, if I were Him!

    1. Key West sounds wonderful. I remember my Dad and StepMom talking about how snow and ice would make the roads in Albuquerque so dangerous. Neither one of them have to worry about that now, since they reside in heaven.

  2. Yes, sometimes, businesses could do well with every once in a while showing they care about their employees. Great morale booster! Visiting from Five Minute Friday.

    1. With today’s technology you would think companies would even let people work from home on extreme bad weather days. Even implementing shifts would help.

      Thanks for the visit. God bless you.
