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

Weekend Wisdom: A New Command

This is really not a new command, but after all the events in the world recently, I felt that we needed this reminder.

Follow this to bring not only love, but joy to one another.

God bless you as you live out this command.


“Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”

John 13: 34 – 35

The Message

Weekend Wisdom For Today and This Week

It’s Sunday and that means Tuesday is Election Day.  Hallelujah!  At least it will be over and the political calls will stop.  Then that means the Home Security companies will start calling again – ugh!

No matter how the election turns out, remember these words of wisdom this week:

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

John 13:34-35 (NIV)
