Weekend Wisdom: Bacon

Every Thursday night there is a Five Minute Friday chat on Twitter (#fmfparty). During the chat Kate Motaung reveals the word prompt everyone is to write on for five minutes and then publish. I usually check what the word is on Friday and see if I can come up with a post. This year my brain has struggled to come up with posts so my participation in the group has not been what I want.

Last week’s word for the final Five Minute Friday of Write31Days was BACON (click to read all the Bacon posts from different bloggers).

It was my intention to work that prompt into my 31 Days of Tricks to Scare Away the Grief Monster, however my brain was so fried from all the writing I was unable to see, through all the grease, how to work it into my series.

So I skipped the word prompt again.

Then this past week I was given a new Christmas decoration and I now have someone to pet.

Here is a picture, which is worth a thousand words er laughs.

So without further adieu, I give you Santa Bacon.

Oh, and my goal for next Halloween is to be able to fit into this dress.

A Follow-Up to FMF: Open For Business

Last Friday I wrote this post as part of Five Minute Friday. It was written and published before I went to work.

Some people could interpret it as a rant – and I suppose it was.

When I went to a local news station’s website and saw over 650 closings it dawned on me that a few that were closed but the majority of Northeast Ohio was open for business.

I believe God put the idea and words for that post in my heart because the weather that day was not typical of a winter in Northeast Ohio.

What God Has Place On My Heart Now

God has me praying for my coworker and her family because her husband was killed in a car accident Friday.

Please keep them in your prayers this week.

Thank you and God Bless You.





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
